Ah. Mine will be shipped through FexEx and my phone number wouldn't work for the reference number since I'm switching to Verizon and haven't ported my AT&T number yet.
How do you know it is shipping FedEx?

I'm going to update tomorrow. that should alleviate some of the sleepless and stressed nights I have been having since Pre-order day...
Have you tried calling Sprint today? Maybe you could get better results? Escalate the call if necessary?

Someone has beaten us to the punch!

Of note is the last paragraph on that post:

"The first round of pre-orders are already en route to their destinations, although Apple has arranged for carriers to hold deliveries until the official Friday launch. It is not unheard of, however, for a handful of deliveries to slip through early."

yes no luck whatsoever. All they can tell me is that once my order status is updated I will get an email. I must have spoken to at least 6 people over at sprint in the past 2 days.

So, my iPhone 5 left Alaska overnight. My guess is that it's going
to Los Angeles.
Actually, I think they all go through the UPS Hub in Louisville first. Mine left Anchorage with yours last night - I am in Anchorage!

I ordered my last three phones through Apple and all of them were delivered by FedEx.
Same here. However, my phone from Apple is coming UPS this time. I tracked it by phone # reference per previous posts and found both mine and my cousin's. Odd. Apple seems to be spreading the businesss around.

just a question, but do you think lining up at 5 AM the day of release I could still get my hands on another one if I wanted? or would i be too late?

I just tried UPS and there's nothing listed under my reference number there, either. I ordered some Lightning to USB cables a couple days before that and they were shipped from China and just arrived in Alaska via FedEx.

I checked last night and after talking to Apple last night tracking for the iPhone finally showed up on UPS.com track by reference using billing phone number. Have you tried recently?

You're right! I just checked on UPS by referencing my phone number and it got to Louisville five hours ago.

I ordered mine at 2:45 am on pre order day with Apple store app. Got a conformation email. It still says preparing for shipment and has a delivery day of 9/21 but I'm getting worried.
