    The status of my iPhone 6 Plus is now "ready for shipping" : I wonder how long will it take to be delivered (I live in Italy and it keeps on saying "09 Oct, 2014 - 13 Oct, 2014" with Express Delivery, but it seems a very long time for a phone ready to be delivered as I imagine it will be shipped tomorrow morning ...) : can anyone who already got his phone share his experience and tell me how long it takes to get it to your place since the moment in which the status passes to "ready for shipping" ?

    It can vary. Mine took 6 days but I've seen others move much faster.

    The middle two should be the same ... actually I've never seen "readying for shipment", but only "Ready to Ship" ...

    Dunno if it's gonna be UPS or TNT ... they should be fast to ship in Italy FROM Italy, but I don't know how long will it take to get my phone to them ...

    My best guess is it will be in Italia 3 days after you get tracking number

    There are some cases where people are stuck on "preparing to be shipped" for 3-4 days.
