    So I was bored and I decided to try and track my iPhone which is Preparing for Shipment (Apple.com Order).

    UPS.com
    Track by Reference
    Phone Number as Reference Number
    Package (not freight or anything else)
    Destination Country
    Boom!

    A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status--including the scheduled delivery date--will be updated.

    Nice to know I don't have to wait for Apple to post my tracking number! It's there!!

    Good luck to all!

    With or without dashes? Also did you use the main account number, number its going on, number that the upgrade was used from? All 3 probably? All three are different for me lol. No combination worked though.

    For anyone like me who cannot find where it says track by reference, you can actually see it here (this is the us link)

    How long ago did your status change to "Preparing for Shipment"?

    ShipShare

    I created ShipShare (free, no profit motive) to share our shipment information.

    Edit: I suggest going to this thread instead. There are screenshots from users there.

    It doesn't work for me, but I ordered my phone unlocked, and without attaching it to a phone number, so either the billing # or shipping # would have to work, and neither do :(

    I also ordered my iPhone unlocked. I just typed in the phone number that I associated the billing/shipping with and it came up.
