If you're in the US, it's possible that your phone is already here and has no need to ship anywhere until later today or tomorrow. That's the case with mine.

Mine hasn't either and it's set for a delivery of 9/19. I preordered from Apple at 4am last Friday morning. I have a feeling that they have shipped but it's just not updated on the website yet.

mine hasn't shipped either, but that's because they are being distributed from in the USA, so no need for many days. That's my guess anyway. Not worried.

Scans and updates can have huge delays. I've seen 12 hours + delays with UPS quite regularly. Your parcel could be on it's way to your local depo, but the last scan shows it somewhere funky.

It's normal, no worries. Grab a Bud, or your nuts, give them a fondle.

Somethin' to pass the time :cool:

It ALSO means we will be getting early production models. These typically have the best quality control because they were made during production ramp up not when they were pumping out thousands by the minute.

These are also the ones that get delivered early by accident on occasion. The ones from China are all held at the same place until dispatch together.

Serial number assigned. Only a week 36 =). Still hasn't shipped though, so it must be stateside (granted they can get it here really fast even from China... it's just not likely).

My order doesn't show shipped yet through apple, but when I go into my UPS My Choice account it shows the delivery scheduled for Friday, with a tracking number. It was just put into the UPS system yesterday and is currently sitting in Harrisburg, PA. I assume it will ship tomorrow as it's set with overnight shipping.

Mine is a week 35 and it shipped today from Tennessee via UPS next day air saver for 9/19 delivery!

I'm psyched!

I got a tracking number for mine on 9/15 and it still hasn't been scanned in yet by ups so I wouldn't worry about it too much. My guess is mine will finally get scanned in tomorrow for Friday delivery.

Check fedex or UPS "Track by reference" page. My order in Apple's website still says preparing for shipment, but I used my phone number in the reference page and got my tracking number.

I've got a week 34 (CN Factory).

UPS label was prepared on 9/15 but apple.com still states preparing for shipment (tracked by reference).

That's how I found mine. The apple order status still says preparing for shipment.

for anyone that still shows Preparing for shipment you can go to UPS.com ( if youve ordered from apple.com) and type in your phone number for the reference number and location and It gave me my Tracking # !! even though apple says preparing to ship
