Really? I haven't seen any scans with people with an arrival in Alaska and no departure, just those with departures from Alaska and nothing more. If it's the latter, your phone is sitting at WorldPort in Louisville right now waiting for its import scan, which supposedly will happen before evening today, at which point in time your tracking will update.Hell... mine's still in Alaska!!
"I know you deliver millions of packages a week, but I know better than you, and you haven't delivered my package into the future as of today!!!""Hello FedEx, my phone hasn't been delivered yet. I know it's not scheduled to be delivered until Friday, but this is unacceptable".
Apple's official status will remain "preparing to ship" until the phones have cleared the import scan at WorldPort in Louisville. People will start receiving their tracking numbers and their status will change to "shipped" shortly after.I wouldn't worry if it still says preparing to ship. I still have that as well. Probably won't change until they ship out to your location.
Also, there is a reason they say overnight shipping. Meaning they can ship out Thursday evening and be out for delivery Friday morning.
