    Tracked my iPhone by reference on UPS. My order status on apple.com still says preparing for shipment. Above is the link showing it was last seen in ZhengZhou, China. Too excited! :apple::cool:

    You just put your phone number as the reference number and it worked?

    Yes. I tried last night and it didn't work so it must have just shipped out today.

    same here. Ordered on Apple.com and just tracked by reference on UPS. FYI - I used the phone number associated with my billing address which is not my mobile number.

    Nice, does your UPS show "next day air saver" on the right?

    When you attempted to track by reference did you specify Package or "Mail Innovations" at the shipment type?

    I filled in my phone number, country and zip code and left everything else as it was pre-populated (or not) and it worked for my "preparing for shipment" 6 Plus.

    What is the weight of one phone? One phone on our account shows up with a tracking number and the other one doesn't. Made me think that maybe both phones are in the same box since we are on the same at&t account.

    The only phone number that brings back a tracking number says it is 1.40 lbs. Is that for one phone?

    You guys having trouble finding your UPS package with your phone number as a reference can try using your order number without the last two digits.

    Ex. W1234567

    People did this a couple years ago with Fedex, in case you ordered through Verizon.


    Track by reference:
    https://www.fedex.com/fedextrack/html/index.html?action=altref&r=g

    The "reference" number is in the format:
    "LocationCode_OrderNumber"

    For example, if your location code is 123 and your order number is abc, you would track by reference:
    123_abc

    I did track by reference.

    I am also a mychoice member (they were giving a year free a while back) and according to my delivery options I can hold for pickup at UPS customer service center, reschedule delivery, and send to a UPS store BUT I cannot send to another address...

    Looks like ill be able to just have them hold it somewhere and go pick it up on my own time!

    I'm in the same boat. Everything should work out they still have till Thursday to ship our phones. Its amazing how fast UPS can get any package from China to our doors.
