    Silly me, went though Verzion, and well... no info on my iPhone 5 at all. Ordered on first day of pre-orders and not one email, tracking number, and when I called they gave me a order number, and it didnt work... had to call back again to be told they still haven't even ordered the iPhone from apple. *Sigh*

    Its still early, relax.
    People that ordered from Apple havent officially got a tracking number yet either.

    If they haven't, then how are all these people tracking already?

    I ordered from Apple and have no tracking number. it's showing as "preparing for shipment"

    Im using the UPS.com method.

    you track by reference ans use the number on the apple account to track it.

    We are able to track our phones by going to the UPS site and typing in our phone number as a reference number ("Track by reference"), putting in your country, and then putting in your zip code. Enter that, and you should be able to track your phone!

    EDIT: Looks like someone beat me to it!

    Exactly.

    And, is having a tracking number on Tuesday better than a phone on Friday worth it? Who knows the answer to any of this.

    Silly thread.

    Check the Apple.com sticky. There are several ways you should try your reference number. Verizon also may have used your acct #? Just saying, there are many things you can try.

    When you said that it didn't work, did you click on the correct button on top (Second arrow, not the first one which is for over the wireless site. Second arrow is for those that actually went into the Verizon store for purchase ?

    i ordered through Verizon as well and my order number doesn't work in their order status page although funny enough all the reps say, "it should work" so I ask them to check and they all say they don't have access to that or can't check... seems like a lot of incompetence to me, unsurprising with Verizon but it's annoying to say the least.

    I have no idea if I'm getting a phone on the 21st even though I completed my order at 3:08 AM on launch morning with email confirming my order and the rep I was chatting with the whole time also taking my order number and confirming it... or so he said.
