    Cause it's odd to me that everyone else's will come from china and mine is coming from USA, best I can guess is it came over Ina shipment before it was scanned ?

    They all came from China, yours (ours) just happened to be shipping from their warehouse in IL.

    I'm sure some are stockpiled here in the USA. You got lucky. Maybe your phone will be early since it is so close.

    Just a word of caution for those that are using the "Reference" information to find their "order" on UPS. Many of these "matches" may not really be your iPhone 5.

    Until you receive your email from Apple with your 1Z... UPS number, you might be just getting another UPS package. Please double check the weight and for example the 2 LB packages are not an iPhone 5 from Apple! :(:eek:

    Hope I'm able to get it early, it has overnight shipping from IL... Theoretically it should be here tomorrow, however they must have a hold on it as it says 21st delivery.. We will see if someone slips and delivers it.

    If it matches destination address then I don't see a reason why it would deceive anyone...

    Your package weighs to much. It should weigh .40 kg or about 1 lb in US.

    Also your packages from within the US are showing Next Day Air Saver which would put it at your door Next business day delivery by end of day ( Residential Destinations).

    Pretty sure it is, I really don't think something else is coming with my cell phone number and to my zip code on the 21st. Like I said it prob has maybe something else in the box paper wise or maybe it was a guess. I guess alot when I put weight on stuff when I ship and print the label and it still gos

    I ordered 2 phones, with 2 different numbers. Putting both of those numbers into UPS and I get two separate tracking numbers with shipments from Addison IL. Both say they are 2lbs with delivery dates of 9/21. We have ordered nothing else, and nothing else from Apple.
    These are our phones...bottom line!

    When I got my 4s last year it started off in a warehouse here in the US. Apple seems to stockpile products in the US before launch. My guess is that is what happened here.
