I don’t know where my phone is... all I know is that it’s not in Alaska

I was able to find my tracking number a few days ago and I’ve been following my phone on it’s way here from China, but the last entry in the tracking log a departure from anchorage, AK at 4:30PM yesterday. That was more than 24 hours ago, so it seems like that’s plenty of time for it to get to wherever it’s going next.

I’m not worried yet, but I will be happier when I finally see an arrival logged.

Pretty sure it’s sitting in ky right now waiting for other flight. Check the Apple.com order thread.

Completely normal, many people have the 4:30pm departure from AK! Patience!

One thing that I miss out on doing an in-store pick up. Tracking the package. Fun times.

Pretty sure this forum is over saturated with the same sh*t every year lol. Panicking because shipping updates suddenly come to a halt 3 days prior to delivery! Take a nap. Get some work done. Go to the gym. Make sweet love to your woman. Phone will be here on Friday if it's supposed to.

It's very cold in Alaska.
Not a joke. The cold temps can make the metal contract quickly. I always do a metal break-in gradually by keeping my phone in a climate controlled box at night. I start night 1 at 70 degrees. Night two 68 degrees. Night 3, 72 degrees. Night 4, 66 degrees, night 5, 74 degrees. Night 6, 64 degrees....and so on and so forth. That is the proper way to do so.

I called apple customer service and told them if my phone passes through Alaska I would cancel and reorder. They didn't try to argue with me, so it leads me to believe that skipping proper temp break-in is a known flaw in apple's process.

You are not getting any phones! 2 is more than enough!

Mine left AK less than an hour ago. Pretty sure it was the last launch day shipment from China. All of the phones in KY will be flown out on Thursday to your local airport for delivery on Friday.

It is not cold at all--My thermometer says its 32 degrees, almost summer still. But still foggy as heck and getting worse by the minute
I thought Tuesday was bad. Pea soup all day Wednesday in the valley. Worse than notoriously foggy Spokane, WA.
