    If you head to FedEx and use the Track by Reference (https://www.fedex.com/apps/fedextrack/?action=altref&cntry_code=us) your shipment might show there.

    For reference number use all three of these numbers: your order number, your order number MINUS the last four digits, and your phone number. Remove the ship date then make sure you plug in your nine-digit zip code (https://tools.usps.com/go/ZipLookupAction!input.action). When you hover over the status you get "In Transit."

    As of right now there's no tracking information but it looks like at minimum a label has been created for my order. I'm in the 4-6 week time if that matters.

    That's interesting. I got the same results. 4/24-5/8 group.

    Not right, just a FedEx glitch. Try typing in the wrong order number by switching some digits around. You'll get the same results.

    Mine looks the same as the OP's. Also 4-6 weeks shipping estimate.

    Nevermind, I see it's just a quirk of the FedEx site.

    When I intentionally spoof my order numbers and phone number I get an error message that the numbers can't be found?

    I see what you're saying but this is very unusual for FedEx. Usually, your package doesn't exist in their system until the first time the label is scanned.

    Very unusual.

    This is nothing more than a site glitch for FedEx. I can confirm this as I entered a bogus Apple Order # but with the same digits and still received results.

    Tried using just the order number and zip code with no ship date and it didn't work. Tried using my phone number and 5 digit zip with no ship date and also didn't work. Maybe it is a glitch.

    it's ok. You've given alot of people something to cling onto, even if it doesn't pan out. The endorphins and adrenaline are real lol.

    Yes good job nevertheless. Keep it up.

    If we all work together we can obsess more efficiently.

    Same glitch happened with iPhone 6, so probably hasn't been fixed yet.

    Haha, If you guys keep searching long enough, I am sure you will find a shipping number corresponding to the Roswell UFO. I mean you guys do know that was shipped to Area 51 by Fedex right?

    Mine says in progress, but there's no more information. It looks like the pics that others have posted.

    That is incorrect.
    FedEx was not in business until 1971, although at the time they used the name "Federal Express", not FedEx.
    The Roswell UFO incident was in 1947.

    i don't think so. i buy a lot stuff from amazon, and if you keep checking the tracking frequently, you can always see some status as 'shipping label created', when the item has not yet left amazon facility.

    That's UPS. UPS bills the account for a package when the label is created- even if that label never gets used.
