    Mine's neither shipping nor processing but rather "Preparing for shipment." It's stuck in the middle. :(

    Ordered my 16gb black 4S from apple.com for sprint and it's still at preparing for shipment.

    I've tried the UPS/Fedex reference trick but still not showing up on either :(

    Sorry. Just assume preparing for shipping and still processing are the same.

    Processing is the same as prepare for shipment. If you click on the link that is the exact definition.

    They're not the same at all.

    No, you're not correct, at least on the Apple Store. They have four categories for orders.

    What are the different states of an order?

    We've received your order:
    We've received your order and will begin processing it soon! You may be able to modify your order details once the order enters the processing items status.

    Processing Items:
    We're processing your order right now. You can modify your order details through online Order Status, or by contacting Apple Online Store Customer Service.

    Preparing for Shipment:
    We are preparing your item(s) to ship. While your item is being prepared, we are unable to modify your order details. We will email you a Shipment Notification with complete order details once your order leaves our warehouse.

    Shipped:
    Your order has shipped! Your carrier tracking number will be updated in online Order Status and the carrier's website within 24 hours.

    My bad. I don't know which merchant this thread refers to. I assumed Apple.

    Mine is sitting comfortably in "1st Class", sipping on a cocktail somewhere over the Pacific enroute to Anchorage

    I know they're not the same. I just want to see if the people that are getting tracking numbers are getting a specific version and if there's a pattern for those that are not getting it.

    More likely is that it's in the cargo hold with the chicken cages.

    stuck on can't find my order status. i'm not worried any more. they changed my contract date, they gave me a shipping order number, they did the dance with the bank, they left my unlim data plan alone. someday, and probably on friday, I'll get the phone. i swear it's all about their data hooks. they just can't find orders that are not for the primary number, and they go nuts if you have a family plan with two eligible lines and update both of them. everything ends up associated to the primary number, or if its only the nonprimary number being updated, the details get fixed but no query against that line serves up any order info. Perhaps this is what happens in a company that pays great dividends instead of investing in modern data warehousing. I feel bad for all those reps peering into green screen computer monitors from the 1980s...

    otoh, there's an overwhelming amount of info trying to make its way through their systems in the past three days. Still, if you can fit the library of congress on a few 4TB drives (or fewer?), how long can it take to process a quarter-million tersely described iPhone orders?!

    Since there is a category for "shipped" then this is an Apple.com poll. If people that ordered elsewhere vote then this poll is worthless.
