FedEx ManIf you pre-ordered your iPhone 4 with Apple and opted for the delivery, you  probably received an  email alerting you that your iPhone will deliver on June 23rd, which is a day ahead of schedule.

The email reads:

Subject: Apple Store – Your iPhone will deliver on June 23rd
Date: Tue, 22 Jun 2010 00:11:30 -0500

Dear Apple Store Customer,

You recently received a Shipment Notification email from Apple advising you that your iPhone has shipped.

This email is to confirm that your delivery will occur on June 23rd. Although Apple and FedEx tracking information may currently indicate a later date, you can check the FedEx website the morning of the June 23rd to track your package to your doorstep.

In the event that you will not be available to accept delivery on June 23rd, it may be more convenient to use our pre-sign delivery option by visiting our Order Status website at


The Apple Store Team

So, will our iPhone really arrive on the 23rd? I doubt  it. I think this is just a big mistake from Apple, and someone in Cupertino might have gotten fired for this.

Last year, my UPS tracking showed my 3GS was going to arrive a day early too but the phone eventually got held for an additional day and was finally delivered on the  scheduled date.

Did you get one of these  emails? Do you think your iPhone will arrive on the 23rd?

    My FedEx Tracking Number (From AT&T) shows that the phone was picked up in Texas this morning at 7:05am, and will be at my house at 3:pm on the 23rd..

    I got the same letter, and FedEx currently lists the phone as being in Oakland, CA, only about 50 miles away. So they certainly could deliver it tomorrow if they want…

  • Jack

    So far I’ve received two emails from AT&T saying my one iPhone has shipped. One had a shipping number and the other didn’t. When I check fedex with thr number, they say no information can be found.

    I also received two emails about how they hope I am enjoying my new iPhone 3GS… not sure whatthats about.

  • Jack

    Oh, also, my email says that if I ordered an iPhone 4 or 3GS 8GB, they are currently being staged at the warehouse and fedex may not have shipping info for the next 72 hours. This email came this morning about 1.5 hours ago.

    Anyone else have this?

  • I got the same email, hoping for early delivery.

  • Robert

    I got the same message this morning as you Jack

  • Beak

    Same as you jack

  • Eddie

    Not that it helps but I got the same message as Jack. Anyone know it that means we get it July 2nd. I ordered it 630am est

  • Bis

    Yes I received an email from apple and my iPhone 4 is confirmed to be just a hour away from where I live at a fed ex plant. So I’m hoping I will see it in the morning

    I am a FedEx courier. I can personally confirm delivering several of these today (June23). This is NOT a hoax.

  • What a great resource!
