iPhone 5 Pre-Order Shipping Estimates! (UPDATE: How To Track Shipment Info On Original Post!)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

**UPDATE**: To TRACK your shipment if you HAVE NOT yet got it from Sprint, please follow these steps to track through UPS directly!

1) Go to UPS.com

2) Click on the "Tracking" tab

3) Click on "Track By Reference"

4) Input your Sprint account number (found on your monthly statement, or for new customers by chatting with a Sprint rep and asking for it) in the "Shipment Reference" field

5) Complete the "Destination Country" and "Destination Zip/Postal Code" fields

6) Click the "Track" button

               OR

Sign up for UPS MyChoice (Click)  -   this service is simply AMAZING, after you sign up it will CROSS-REFERENCE all your future shipments to your new UPS MyChoice account and send you an email delivery notice, usually before the website you ordered from gets the tracking information! (As in this case, Sprint still hasn't sent it's emails out to some customers yet UPS MyChoice has supplied the shipment information to almost everyone!)

Just wondering if Sprint can give us some updated information on shipping dates throughout the week as we all impatiently await our pre-ordered iPhones! What is the latest date we could have pre-ordered the iPhone 5 from Sprint.com and expect a 9/21 delivery date (For each capacity please)?

Also, even if the shipping times start to get delayed later in the week, that shouldn't affect customers that already pre-ordered before that (sooner), correct? For example, if the sprint website said I can expect a 9/21 delivery date WHEN I pre-ordered and has since gone up to a later date, that shouldn't affect my 9/21 delivery date because I ordered it earlier right? I couldn't imagine they would hold all the orders until they can fullfill them all at once, that would be insane! So I'm assuming, and hoping, they start shipping out pre-orders as they get the phones in and don't just hold everyone back. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated!

Sprint always overnights their phones. When I ordered my EVO (after the shortage), it arrived the next day in the evening. I'm not worried, but I do wish they would update the order status a little more. At least let me know it is ready for shipment or something.

every one needs to realize there will be no early shipping for the iphone #1 there will be no tracking number until the last min #2 your order status will not change until the last min and is it does unless its the 21st you shouldnt take it seriously #3 sprint reps will always give you a diff answer every time #4 and no other carrier is getting special treatment @ all....we are all going threw the same process.....every one is excited and on edge which betters the experience...with that said i hope every last 1 of us gets what we are waitn 4 on the 21st lol

my order still says on or around the 21st, I just hope it makes it on time because I am with out a phone since the 14th until I get my phone because when I switched to sprint I canceled with my old company and decided to take a gamble on the delivery date of the phone and remain with out a phone until the 5 came to me. UPDATE: Also, as of right now (9/20 at 2:17 AM ET) and for the past 10-20 minutes Sprint's site is going very slow and it is taking a while for me to log in or go from one page to the next on this fourm and this is only happening for sprint.com all other sites work for me at normal speed so I'm hoping they are updating are tracking info(may be with a tracking number) and accounts as well to reflect those changes because the site is going so slow

when did you order your phone? and that is not happening for me and I ordered the 32GB on 9/14 around 4am ET time(ounce sprints site started working again) and I already got my new phone number and different reps(online and on the phone) all told me it was on track to get to me on the 21st and that it had already arived to the wherehouse and that it is just waiting for the shipment to start from the wherehouse, so I don't know at this point because every one is getting that message but me
