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!

    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 🙂

    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?

      @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.

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

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

    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?

    • Julie June 23, 2010, 7:02 pm

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