I use Verizon. Got an email yesterday that one of the phones I ordered for work is in Memphis now. It's not mine, it's the regular 7, black, 32 GB. None of the plus sized phones I ordered have shipped yet.
Usually UPS. You can use their app or go to the full site to have it held at the hub as soon as you have your tracking number. Will you be able to pick it up on a lunch break on Friday? They often close at 5:00 pm.
