My status states preparing for shipment, which is at least better than processing order.

Mine has changed to shipped within an hour of my noticing it was processing. Tracking unavailable yet, but i have still not received any email from Apple confirming anything from order to shipment... Not too bothered as long as my new toy is in my hands on Friday..:D

What it looks like and what it really is, is two different things.

Do you really think that Apple picked you to be first?:p

I don't know who they picked to be first, nor have I stated I will be first, nor do I particularly care. If my local delivery service from UPS is anything to go by, it will probably be about 4pm before it turns up, I likely will not be in, so it will be the following day before I can pick it up. However I do know that I can read....

UPS & FEDEX are contracted by Apple to hold the packages for "future delivery" at your local depot until the 16th. However it is very possible some might "slip through the cracks" and end up on the truck (UPS doesn't always read the instructions on the box). Even if it arrives at your local depot today don't expect to get it until Friday. But ya' never know. Good luck!

That blows, would have been nice to get it a little early. What else am I going to do until then? I have to sit here in my own filth.

You will need to take a gun.

Even though, on RARE occasions UPS and FedEx slips up, Apple would be VERY unhappy them.

Plan on the 16th.

I'd just like to say that some people did receive their iPhone 4S early (accident) and with the iPhone 4, Apple actually emailed people and said it would come a day early... so there is a glimmer of hope.
