    Ordered my iPhone last night and I was wondering where it is shipping from. I used Standard Overnight shipment and I live in Boston... Do you think I'll get it today?

    Thanks,

    So maybe iPhones are also being shipped from china. Boy, they have like a daily flight from there. Why not just keep some products at a warehouse or something?

    Apple does not warehouse new ipods and iphones in the US. All ship from Shenzen or Shanghai, China. There is a delay through customs. You basically will get it a day or two earlier than standard shipping, but a minimum of 2-3 days from when you order.

    Overnight shipments and other shipment from different parts of the world are done through regular airlines. They(UPS, Fedex, etc...) usually just drop the packages in the airport and it'll go on the next available flight to that destination.

    It'll cost companies a fortune if they have there own airlines for overnight and express intl' shipments.

    I bet since the 4GB models were discontinued on 9/5, existing stock was flushed from Apple Stores and the pipeline in China to be warehoused in Memphis. Refurbs come from the US, too.

    Mine came today, overnight shipping from Ontario, Canada. I was surprised to see that on my tracking.

    In the meantime my order is stuck at "Not yet shipped" for more then 24 hours. What do you think I should do? Does that happen often?
