    Hi guys,

    I'm sure this has probably been mentioned before. But I need to make some sense out of the whole delivery/tracking system that's handled by Apple followed by the courier.

    Could someone please advise me on how the whole thing works? Also how long does it usually take for the item to reach UK once it's been Dispatched?

    I first had a tracking number given as: 6YX9446
    Which after I found out is more of a flight number really and was headed to Amsterdam today and think it did reach there today.

    Yesterday I was given a 10 digit number as a tracking number for DHL but this doesn't work anywhere at all.

    Can someone please help?

    Thanks all in advance

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. If the delivery window hasn't passed you're fine.

    Apple has a pretty complicated system for dispatching and delivering stuff - I wouldn't be surprised if you made 2 consecutive orders that ended up going via different airlines.

    Masotime,

    Thanks for a quick response mate , really appreciate it.

    I only made the one order. It's still under the est. delivery time, however I want to keep an eye on it and it's a very strange system. Do you have any idea how I go on about tracking the delivery so I can stay up to date with it?

    Thanks

    It could simply be that the tracking number you were given hasn't been entered into DHL's system yet. If you're on a tight schedule, I'd recommend calling up Apple and asking the CS Rep if they have more information regarding the shipment.

    Apple will not be of much help. Once it get to your country the DHL number should be active so you can track.

    Thanks Newtons,
    I guess I'll wait and try the tracking number given by Apple on Monday and see if there's anything come up on DHL site.
