    Anyone else with an estimated delivery date of Thursday stuck in Zhengzhou? I was really hoping that UPS would deliver on Wednesday and surprise me... looks like it won't. I've now about 11 hours for my iPhone to move from Zhengzhou to Incheon, Korea. From those who have already gotten shipped to Anchorage or Louisville (you lucky ducks, you), did the Origin Scan for Korea come much later than the one in Zhengzhou?

    Ordered at :05 on opening night. Gold iPhone, 16 GB CDMA.

    Join the Zhengzhou club

    You're East Coast, which is probably why you're getting delivered to quicker.

    Remember, when flying from China to the US, you cross the dateline... so if it ships Tuesday AM, (it's 9 am in China), it actually arrives at about 1am the same day into Anchorage, or 4 am into Louisville, etc.... so there's plenty of time to make thursday. I'd even bet if you see movement on a US-bound flight in the next 18 hours that it'll make it to you Wednesday. It's only a 12 hour flight from China to the East Coast distrib hub, and they'll likely clear customs in flight, then go right into overnight sort, so Tuesday is very possible for you still. :)

    With 4.5 million packages delivered a day, some don't get scanned.

    Actually they are all scanned without a miss. They are originally scan by computer ( no human involved). They are scanned into a unit of one container which contain many iPhones. When moved from place to place that unit is scanned and that scan covers all units in that container, that's why you will notice that everyone has the same scan times until the iPhone gets to their delivery location.

    FYI its pointless, as our plane will be leaving at 5 am EST or so. So it'll be a while before theres anything new there.

    Not to say I'm not just in case lol.

    Kinda suck that you have to paid $10 extra to have it deliver on wed, because I did not pay $10 and I still get it on wed tohouston tx as well tmobile unlocked 16gb gold. I ordered it sametimes as you.

    On the other hand 2-3 minutes after my order was placed I placed my dads order and he got 7-10 days ship :eek: :confused: oh well he is in no rush like us I guess haha.
