I usually refresh my fedex tracking for my iphone 5 every hour or so and I just refreshed it to find it with a new update on my package:
At local FedEx facility
Sep 18, 2012

So if the FedX tracker says 'Future Delivery Requested' can one request that be cancelled and the package released for transit now? Anyone know? I didn't see an option on FedX's site but others are more savvy!
Mine also has the same path as yours. My guess is since FedEx seems to only be relocating shipments a short distance each day they are shifting iphones around to a few central distributions to shipping destinations and they will release them tomorrow afternoon/evening for overnight next day delivery to everyone.
I ordered my phone on 9/14; 8:02am confirmation email.
I'm assuming that because I currently don't have a tracking number right now, I must not be getting the phone on the 21st...
This is bad news of course and I am hoping that someone will provide me with any information that refutes my claim haha
That's what I've got on my Order Status page. No courier, and no ship date. But the order will "Ship by 9/21"? Confusing as hell.
@mikechado, make sure you confirmed your purchase. I went online last friday ordered it and got a comfirmation number and thought I was done. The money didnt come out and my verizon showed the same thing, so I called. I was informed the primary line on my account should have recieved a text asking to confirm the purchase and after doing that I finally got debited for the purchase and my verizon now shows a tracking number and that the courier is fedex and a ship date.
If your order shows "FUTURE DELIVERY" then no you should not recieve your phone before friday, this is because they know the phone isnt released until friday. In the past they have had issues with fedex delivering phones early but out of lets just say 500,000 phones we are talking about less then maybe 20 phones. So I wouldnt get your hopes up on getting it before friday.
