WHY is my iPhone still "In progress"?!

People who ordered off of Apple already have tracking numbers and have left China already. I know it's a too early to say that it wont come in by Friday, but can my package get delivered in 24 hours? I really want mine to come in by Friday. I'm a new iPhone AND AT&T user and i'd hate for everything to be delayed...

I'd wait until tomorrow night at about this time before getting my panties in a bunch. Nothing you can do to make it come any faster, anyway. Phones that are coming in thru Alaska are the ones bought through Apple, not ATT. Apple's get sent and tracked all the way from China. AT&T's get sent from a warehouse already inside the US. Their tracking number don't show up until 1-2 days before delivery and we're not quite there yet.

They leave wherever you bought it from. If you bought it from AT&T.com, you have to wait until their warehouse receives and catalogs their shipments. If you bought it from Store.Apple.Com, you have to wait until their warehouse decides to ship it. Depending on when you pre-ordered yours and if you read the news they have several hundred thousand customers, you may see it on Friday plus or minus a day.

Go here http://wwwapps.ups.com/WebTracking/track?loc=en_US&WBPM_lid=homepage/ct1.html_pnl_trk

Track by reference, enter the order number without the last two numbers, Usa and your zip.

I just got my tracking and the phone just made it to alaska...but with that method I could see the status earlier.

by saying "minus a day" you made me less anxious about it arriving late. (:
I hope it does come in a day earlier. I heard that the 4 did..

My order status is still processing as well. If they ship out tomorrow, I hope they will use 2nd day air instead of ground so I can get it on Friday. As promised by AT&T salesperson.

That's what i'm saying! I ordered at 3am CST only an hour after the pre-orders started...cause i fell asleep. 😕 I heard that the systems weren't even working anyways until 2:40ish. Mine should be shipped already...

I just got emails with tracking numbers for all three phones. I imagine that everybody else who got their orders in before AT&T sold out will get their emails soon as well.

 

Try not to get too worked up over this. It will happen.

I just received mine also! I am so happy! I'd be concerned if you don't have a tracking number by now. Especially if you ordered multiple phones. I heard horror stories about orders not shipping when multiple phones are ordered. It's a big relief that you somehow got tracking information tonight. Congratulations and just be thankful your order of multiple phones is not being held up since an order can not partially be shipped. Sleep well my friend. Sleep well.

Congrats!

 

Unless I'm mistaken, each upgrade goes in as a separate order, even though they are on the same account. I have three separate order numbers and three separate tracking numbers, one for each phone.

 

if it goes anything like last time with the iPhone 4 launch, the tracking number emails will filter out all through the day on Wednesday and possibly into Thursday. They'll arrive though. I just want folks not to worry themselves sick about it. It'll happen.

I'm afraid your mistaken. Sadly it will all be under one order so if one phone is not available the entire shipment is held. Imagine the costs of mailing each phone seperately when they can all fit in one box! Glad to hear they had all your phones! Wouldn't want to be the poor sap who ordered 3 phones but had to wait until November for them.

Well, as I said, I have three separate, different order numbers and three separate, different tracking numbers. All three phones are on the same account.
