    My status changed to "prepared for shipment" this morning and now it's shipped. I was told to expect it on or before next monday. It's shipped via UPS though the tracking info hasn't been updated on their site so I don't know where it's dispatched from.

    Apple Customer Services is 1(800) MY-APPLE just say "I want to talk to a representative" and the automated system will connect you to a CSR.

    Mine was at "Prepared for shipment" for 2-3 days.

    Finally, they started shipping it to catch a FedEx flight this morning.

    We should remember that FedEx isn't just shipping iProducts.

    Mine finally switched to prepared for shipment today after 5 days. However the delivery date is still set at September 15th and I paid for next day shipping so it's likely mine will sit on prepared for shipping until the 14th

    If its UPS I think it must be pretty fast, mine was shipped yesterday from China, and is been sitting like 10 hours now in Alaska, :D

    I think it will ship fast because the same day it was shipped, a mexican apple reseller (the most important) twitted that they are getting the new ipods soon, so I think those ipods are coming in the same shipping with mine :p

    the initial tracking number in the email doesn't work. apple will soon update the tracking number on your status page if they haven't already.

    Mine was in the prepared for shipment stage a good day or so. I first noticed it had changed at 3 yesterday and I got an email at 1AM today that my order has shipped

    The tracking number they send should work immediately, all mine said at 1AM was that FedEx had gotten the package information but a few hours later is came up as having been picked up from China and currently in transit

    I got a "Shipment notification" email and it had a neat little "track shipment" button that automatically took me to FedEx's website and my tracking information.
