It stands to reason that there are thousands of preorders that have to get shipped, you are one of them and Verizion is not going to ship all of them at once. Your order was re-ordered so its going to be shipped after all those who pre ordered before you.
Ordered 12:15 AM on 4-4. Was notified that the device'd shipped at noon on 4-9. It sits, now, in Newark, NJ, less than 50 miles from its destination. Anticipation's high, accessories are on-the-way and the sun is shining. My new summer phone with that great camera is coming tomorrow.
