    So I preordered my 4S thru vzw, and had my confirmation email within 5 minutes of the pre order. Basically it started about 1:50am cst- and I ordered mine then. Any ways, mine is still at this: We have received your order and it is in process: expected delivery date 10/14/11. I know that apple and some others are at preparing to ship, but I think once Verizon opens back up tomorrow that we may actually see some shipping notifications. They did send many of the pre ordered 4's out 3-4 days before "launch". Just curious if this is what everyone else it getting when they check their order status.

    Note: I ordered from vzw.com, not apple. Let's hear what some of you have. I still firmly believe we get these a few days early.

    That's what I get when I check my order status. Hopefully that's a delivery date and not a ship date like it says.

    Do people at Verizon even work tomorrow since it's a holiday?

    At least shipping yes, and most likely everyone else. UPS and FedEx are open for business...

    I noticed some sprint customers have gotten tracking numbers. I think by tomorrow vzw order status will change and we will get a surprise, lets keep updating this thread so we can follow each others progress.

    Someone said in this thread (last pg) that some VZ customers have received shipping e-mails with tracking numbers.

    This is also what mine says. I began my order just before 3am EST and was done just after 3 am.

    I don't think the link tool me to the right place(guy who said vzw customers are receiving tracking #'s). I have absolute faith in vzw, the last 3 phones I have pre ordered thru them have all came 3-7 days early. I just don't think they operate the part of their company that deals with I online orders over the weekend, I def think we will see some status changes as early as tomorrow even with some ship dates moved up

    I ordered mine at 12:15 EST and the confirmation email came about two hours later and said I could expect my phone on the 14th. My order status,however, says it is expected to ship on the 14th. I am fairly confident that we will get our phones on the 14th or sooner...probably the 14th.

    I've talked to VZW about two times since then. I called a few hours after I placed my order because while ordering there was no place to add my apartment number to the address. The CSR gladly helped me out with that and assured me it would be mailed to that address.

    Today, I read on the VZW forums that someone else had the same thing happen to them and VZW forced him to cancel his order and re-order (with a later ship date). So, naturally I got extremely nervous that order was inadvertently canceled. I called again and the CSR confirmed the correct address with me.

    But a couple things...she said that that literally no one in the customer service department knows anything about the iPhone shipments. Everyone gets bulletins from the higher ups with things they're suppose to know which isn't very much. She said that if your order status reads that it is expected to ship on the 14th then you will HAVE your phone on the 14th if everything else is kept constant...their inventory, shipping companies don't encounter delays, etc. However, all those things can change. Take that for what is worth.

    Does anyone know if these phones ship from Apple directly? Or if ship from VZW?

    I ordered mine around 4:30/5 AM EDT on the 7th and it still says "We have received your order and it is in process: expected delivery date 10/14/11."

    Hopefully tomorrow we get an update.

    relax... about thursday afternoon you will get an email stating your order has been shipped. checking your order status every 5 minutes will only cause your stress level to rise and for you to come to this forum making useless threads because of panic.

    Some people on the Verizon forums are reporting they received tracking info from the USPS.. Not FedEx or UPS.
