    I ordered my 128g matte black 7+ at 4:30am through Verizon. I received an estimated shipping date of 9/23. I received an email from Verizon in the late morning that my iPhone 7+ has been shipped! Now that is crazy good. I have a tracking number from USPS and confirmed with a Verizon rep that it was not a mistake.

    Forget about Sept. 23rd. I am now curious to see if I get if before it officially comes out on the 16th, or will USPS hold off on the delivery (how they would do that I have no idea).

    Has anyone else received a shipped date today?

    The shippers are supposed to hold of delivery until the 16th. I haven't heard of any slip through since the iPhone 4. It could happen, but it's rare.

    What was shipped to you was most likely the trade in return box. USPS is used for that. They typically use UPS and FedEx for actually getting a device to you on time.

    Yep, this is what this is. I thought the same as the OP, until I looked further into the email.

    I had same email. I really think it may be the trade in box(material). Hope it is the phone though. Sure that will make a lot of people happy.

    I am starting to think everyone's replies are correct. I checked my bank account and did not see a charge go through, but then again I am getting a $650 iPhone 6+ credit (trading in my fully owned one) and financing the payments for 24 months. What is worse, I called up a Verizon rep, gave her the tracking number, and she CONFIRMED that it was indeed the iPhone 7+. The only thing that I am hanging my hat on is that the email from USPS say "signature required."

    I've had one come via USPS before. And I've never had to be home to sign for it either.

    I got the same email, hours after placing my order too. It clearly states in the email " SPE DEVICE TRADE IN RECOV" next to the USPS tracking number. Come on brah!

    It's just your phone trade in box. I got mine yesterday.
