Pre-orders placed on 9/15, anyone have tracking numbers?

Pre-orders placed on 9/15, anyone have tracking numbers?

Hello! I placed an order on 9/15 and have yet to receive any tracking information. I have seen on some threads that people who also placed orders on 9/15 have already received their phones. I called sprint to see if they would have a rough idea of when orders placed on 9/15 would ship and they were unable to give me any sort of frame, and stated 2-3 weeks from order date. If this is true how come some people who placed on the 15th already received their phones? Are they shipping to new customers first? Thanks!

I am a new customer and just missed the time on 14th to get my order.I'm getting the same answer that it may take 2 to 3 weeks before my phone ships

Hello.  For the latest update on iPhone shipping timelines, please click here.   

Since tracking numbers are used for shipping, a tracking number will not be available until your order is filled and prepped for shipping.  You can check the status of your order by visiting www.sprint.com/myorder

Tom,

  I heard the following was not the case with several of your reps:

Pre-ordered devices:

  • iPhone 5 16GB Black/Silver and White/Slate Models
    • Pre-orders placed from 9/14 at 2:01 am CT through 9/14 at 2:00 pm CT will deliver on or around 9/21.  (COULD BE 9/21-10/3)

I was told this because I pre-orderd 2 units with a brand new account on 9/14 at 10am est. and no tracking # has been given to me just that there was a error in the system and that we are sorry. So far not the best experience since I called all last week to triple confirm that we are getting the new phones.

If you follow posts on this forum you will see that the time table you've pasted is not valid.  Several people here have said that they ordered within the 9/14 pre-order window, and were assured that they would get theirs on the 9/21.   These folks have yet to receive anything.  I wish that you all would start telling the truth.  Why do you keep on with the lies upon lies ?  At this point, nobody knows when or if we are getting any devices at all.  Compound that with the fact that there have been reports of major issues with your network using the device (for those that actually got theirs), and you have a recipe for desaster. 

Please, tomedeaver, Sprint :  If you have nothing truthful to say, then please don't post anything. YOUR TIMETABLE IS COMPLETELY FALSE, STOP POSTING IT.  If you want to help people out, then give us real updates on your shipments, or just let us cancel our preorders.

To an6el ~ At that time, it was the best information we had.  The iPhone has been overwhelmingly popular.
