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!

Well, I called and complained.  Like MAGIC I suddenly got my tracking numbers.

If you ordered on time (I ordered at 8:30AM EST on 9/14) and you didn't get your phone, CALL.  I had to wait on hold for about 15 minutes.  Be polite, but demand that you get your phones immediately, since you DID order on time and they PROMISED them to you on 9/21.

Ordered 16gb black iPhone 5 at 1:51pm on 9/14 (confirmed with several cs reps that I ordered before the 2pm cutoff)

I am getting sick of this "on or around the 21st" bs...I haven't called since Saturday, so I'll definitely be calling again today and I will flip out if they tell me it's still within the time frame. It's been 4 days since they said I would have it so it's time for some answers. Admittedly, I had to call customer service last Wednesday when I got an email saying they needed additional information (to port my number from AT&T), but that person I spoke to and every person since has still told me I'll get it "on or around the 21st."

Ordered 16gb on 11:50PM on 9/14 but the sale didn't register until 9/15.  Still no updates and no UPS tracking info using track by reference.  Tempted to just cancel and walk into a store or just switching to Verizon since their iPhones are unlocked.

I ordered mine around the same time on 9/17 and still no tracking # and its been a week, so hopefully i get a # soon, otherwise i'll try to get into a chat to see what they have to say.

Haha I just did the same thing, I had a new order number, went to go check that status, and I got this;

One or more item is In Progress.  Some items maybe Complete. See order sublines for more information. If handset received by customer, manually activate and follow process to correct.

And still no tracking number? smh.

Mines also says the same thing now, with no tracking number and the credit that was on my account for the phone has been taken off of my account.

Ahhhh but when I pull up the bill it does show me that the phone was applied in the charges.... So does that mean phones are shipping soon? I hope so I ordered the white 13 gb on 09/17 at 6:30pm.

If you got the "One or more item is In Progress.  Some items maybe Complete. See order sublines for more information. If handset received by customer, manually activate and follow process to correct." that means your phone has shipped. It wont show on that Order Number, but if you go into chat they will give you an order number that starts with a "oy-xx-xxxx" and that order number will give you a tracking number. I have the same thing on my order number but I have tracking #

I have this message too. My oy-xx-xxxx order number still doesn't have a tracking number though.
