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!

i ordered my iphone 5 on 9/14/12 i still have not heard anything from them. no tracking number no updates! the worst part is i tried to cancel my order on the 16th because i knew i wasnt going to get my phone. they told me i wasnt going to get my refund until 7-10 business days! i should have waited and just gone to apple and bought my phone. i am VERY upset especially since i pre ordered my phone on the 14th after 2pm. if i dont hear from sprint about my phone i am cancelling my order. and ill just walk up to an apple store and purchase my phone. this is a damn nightmare! BTW im phoneless now since i had to cancel my other plan

Just chatted with a rep and I ordered on 9/15 and they said they couldn't even give me an exact date when it will be shipped.

they told me earlier that the latest would be saturday for me. and if my phones on the shelf awaiting shipment it will probs be sooner than saturday.. about 10% of the reps know what their talking about

I understand.

Wen I ordered mine it said, 'Will be delivered on or around the 21st'.

Then about 3 hours later I checked it just out of sheer boredom and it said 'up to 2 weeks from order date'

So, idk what's going on.

Umm.. That can't be right, because I ordered mine at 5am on the 15th and still no tracking #. That was over 10 days ago.

Just wanted to update: I ordered a black 32GB on 9/19 and I just received my tracking info (well, I went to the UPS website and searched by reference using my account number). Its shipping out on Next Day Air. Good luck to anyone else that ordered a 32gb before the 20th! It is true you will receive it within a week!

@ Clau, good for you! I received my shipping info as well and my phone is currently in Louisville and scheduled for delivery today 9/26. And yes, it is true that anyone who ordered a 32g before the 20th (I ordered on 9/18) should be receiving their phones today or tomorrow so pls check UPS if you didn't receive shipping info from Sprint yet.

If checked both....nothin.

Not sure what else to do but wait as the Sprint peeps are no help.

I am a new customer as well and I received my account # through the email that states you have signed up for eBill service. There should be a BAN# which is your account # and you would put that in the shipment reference to track your order. If you did not sign up for eBill then you would have to speak to a Rep to obtain your acct #.
