I found this strange since Apple almost always ships Fedex. Mine is being shipped by UPS and is already in transit in West Chester PA. This is great news for me becasue I live in NYC and getting a signature-required package via fedex can be a nightmare, UPS is much easier in this respect. I'm also shocked the phone is so close already and is in transit, if it is actually being released I might get it early next week. Anyone else with a UPS ship?
