    Tracking flights that your phone may be on ?

    It's a phone, anybody would have thought it was a heart for your dying relative or something. Jesus.

    Come on. I realize its a bit crazy but its all just for fun. Getting the new iPhone is like Christmas to me. It only comes once a year. :rolleyes:

    Check out the link in my first post. If you get a departure scan you can go on this website and figure out what plane your phone is on pretty easily.

    I think flight plans are public domain and so, anyone can just Google them. Plus there is a site that updates in real-time with plane flight information (path, speed and current location).

    So, its not hard. Also, I doubt a phone will go to Louisville and then back to SoCal. If anything it'd come directly from Anchorage. I might be very wrong tho...

    I am relaxed. But I got my phone 1 day early last year so was kind of hoping for the same kind of luck.

    Got tracking number but nothing shows up when I tracked it just now on UPS.
    Guess mine will be on a later flight to the LA area

    I thought the same thing but it looks like most if not all phones are going to Louisville then being distributed out from there. My phone was on a plane from Hong Kong that continued on to Ontario,CA (40 miles from me) but they took it off that plane and shipped it to Louisville. To bad I thought if my phone was in Ontario on Tuesday there would have been a good chance I would get it early.

    Don't worry, you are. Logistics are a little bit more complicated than figuring out the shortest distance between shipping location and final destination.
