Fedex tracking website clogged by new iPhone 4 owners?

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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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. 🙂

  4. 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?

    1. @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.

  5. 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.

    1. @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…
