    My friend and I ordered 256GB Xs Maxes within 10 mins of preorder opening on Verizon, mine still has a delivery date for Friday, however his is being delivered today... must've slipped through the cracks!! :eek: Can post updates of the new phone and first thoughts/impressions here as well! Has anyone else had this?

    Carrieriers have sometimes screwed this up, which has resulted in premature deliveries. However, I have also seen FedEx and UPS pull these packages to the delivery centers, even if his tracking says "Delivering today".

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out. We know there have been a couple of instances in years past where a device slipped through a bit early, and also some instances of devices making it as far as on the truck for delivery, and getting pulled back. Will be interesting!

    There's a chance UPS is going to hold it.

    FedEx has it out for delivery on a truck right now, so unless they notice as they go to deliver it, I think it's probably too late at this point

    Every year a few fortunate souls get theirs early.

    I have seen people get excited and it turned out to be their case or accessory.

    He didn't get anything else, only the phone.

    Highly doubt this happens.

    Look at all the order threads above(Apple, At&T...Verizon);very few people, if any, have tracking information with a phone actually in the states.

    I know, it's surprising and makes no sense. But the tracking says on vehicle for delivery. Mine is in Memphis as of now in transit

    It happens occasionally. I got my iPad Air 2 a day before nearly everyone else in North America, so all of a sudden I was a really popular guy on the forums. :D

    UPS/FedEx is supposed to hold the items, but sometimes a few slip through.

    I once found a Cheeto puff under my sofa cushions that nobody knew about.

    Carriers usually get warnings to look out for the early delivery dated stuff.
    The people who load the trucks are not the ones that deliver. When the driver scans it he may get a warning as well.

    May be one of the lucky ones, so better post pics for sure.

    Do they have a screenshot of the tracking? Obviously with their personal info and tracking # edited out?
