Fedex tracking website clogged by new iPhone 4 owners?

on June 23, 2010 1:26 pm

I’ve been constantly refreshing the Fedex tracking page for my iPhone 4 shipment all morning. The status has been the same since 7pm last night when my package left the Indianapolis facility. I’ve been a bit nervous that I won’t receive my phone today since the status hasn’t shown any updates. I just found out that Fedex is having some issues with their tracking page. I guess me and everyone else that is waiting for their new iPhone 4’s are causing problems. Wow!

    Why are you “nervous” about it? It’s just a phone… I am upgrading too but I’m gonna wait until second shipments come in.

    @Rob “Nervous” as in anxious to get it and wanting it NOW :)

    Andy Simmons says:

    Oh, and I have to wait until tomorrow to go get mine. I’ll be anxiously awaiting your first pics of the phone… and then that anxiousness will turn into jealousy. :)

    So you’re causing undue load on a website to check the status of a package that’s due tomorrow because you want to receive it today? Yeah, that makes complete sense. How, exactly, does pressing “F5″ speed up delivery?

    Julie says:

    @Bill My iPhone is actually supposed to arrive today… I received an email from Apple saying it would be delivered 1 day earlier than scheduled.

    Andy Simmons says:

    @Bill, didn’t you know? Time travel is one of the new features in iOS 4.

    Julie says:

    The Fedex site has updated to show that my iPhone is on the truck for delivery!

    Andy Simmons says:

    Hopefully you won’t have the same problem that I had with delivery of my iPad: went from “out for delivery” to “delivery exception: nobody home” without the driver ever even attempting delivery.

    @Andy I did the pre-sign and have a piece of paper taped to my front door just in case I miss them while I’m down here in the basement. It still hasn’t showed up yet…

    It’s almost 6pm and mine still says it’s on the truck for delivery. I have feeling I won’t see it till tomorrow… :(

    Yay, Julie!! Will you get any sleep tonight, or will you be up playing with your new iPhone?

    @Janet I’ll go to bed at my regular time of 10pm ;) That gives me 3hrs to fiddle with it :)
