Still waiting for mine to arrive in Louisville. It's been on its way from Nashville since 3:06pm yesterday....seems like it wouldn't take that long. Apple and UPS just like to tease me.

This is not good ! I try to catch my guy before Friday and ask him and see what he says .....
I have a different package coming in today from UPS, so I'm just waiting to see what time it is "delivered" so that I have a rough guess. I doubt many people from my town ordered iPhone's at 3 AM.

what time is end of day ?
It depends on the amount your particular package car driver has on his/her route that day. A driver makes air deliveries that have a time commitment first and usually (but not always) those are businesss destinations before they head to residential air deliveries. Depending on their route/dispatch they also have to make account pickups as well. So while technically 7pm is a 'given' EOD value chances are that your specific EOD could be much sooner. My residential deliveries usually arrive between 2pm and 5pm.

imutter I don't think I've ever been home for a UPS shipment, which means they deliver to my house before 4 PM, or have in the past. Who knows, guess I'll find out in 3 days. (y)

Last year I preordered from AT&T and they came FedEx. I got the package in the morning.

Apple has sent all orders I have ever got from them via UPS so this is no surprise. I did receive my iPad at 11:15 am via UPS, so this might come early as well. I read last year where the shipping companies like UPS and Fed Ex don't use the same delivery person or route. They switch up and you will get your package from a different person on a different special route.

So, chin up, you could get your package earlier than your regular route person delivers it and you might not get the regular route person. It could come later too because of iPhone delivery congestion. The more I think of it, the more I'm rooting for the 11:15am delivery to my house. We'll see.

Important information for iPhone Customers
Apple has required that UPS deliver iPhone shipments to customers on and not before Friday, September 21, 2012. iPhone’s are scheduled for Friday, September 21 2012 and have a delivery commitment of the end of day.

Where did you find this notice? I didn't see it on their website...just curious...

Sharunda my chin is definitely up. I'm always hoping for the best. Taking off work Friday just to ensure that I'm home when the phone comes in. Can't risk missing it coming in since someone is buying my iPhone 4 Friday haha.

Girdler I'm staying home Friday because I can't miss this delivery. Hubby is off Friday, but he does OT sometimes. If he doesn't, then he'll be out running errands and I can't risk missing this delivery so I'm home.

Oh this is so exciting! These next few days are going to fly by! It's already after 10AM and although I've been here since 5:43am I fee llike the day is flying by.

Sharunda my day goes a lot faster when I'm reading and posting in this forum. If I'm just sitting here reading random articles on the Internet(like I usually do) it seems to drag.

I get my amazon packages through UPS. Sometimes they arrive early and other times, not till 7pm. I plan on keeping myself occupied Friday by preparing a pot of gumbo

You can take the girl out of the South...
