You and me both. I still wasn't able to have anyone track my phone down so I'm hoping I get a call on Friday morning saying its at the store waiting.

Same here.  No update on the status (ordered Saturday morning).  Maybe Apple will teleport my new phone to the Sprint store tomorrow?

So, does anyone with a tracking number actually have tracking info yet??

 

Yep, mine just updated a few hours ago. I had the tracking # yesterday, but it didn't have any location information associated with it.

 

Today, it says it left TN and is slated for delivery tomorrow. Happy!

Wow so those of you who preordered at a Sprint store haven't had any updates either?  Maybe there is still a 10% chance that they will have my preorder at the store tomorrow.  I just preordered my 64GB 6 yesterday over lunch though, so probably not...  But it is a little bit more encouraging that others who preordered at a store haven't had any updates either.

 

I am pretty sure you guys have nothing to worry about since you got the order in last weekend.  Or was your order a 6+?

The gold 64gb 6+ said the same thing "3-4 weeks", then I got a tracking number last night. Same happened last year with Sprint orders.

My wife's phone was through Apple, no problems there.

 

For me, the company is paying and they are on Verizon. The idiot rep says it will be 10/22 before it comes in. Then why did I bother getting you my preorder ahead of time jackass?

When the store calls you to let you know it came in. Preorders come directly to the store labeled with your name and account info. Stores will have a stock of phones specifically to sell to those walking in the door and those are not able to be used for preorders. If you preordered you guaranteed yourself a phone eventually but you wont just be able to walk and get a random phone from the stores stock.

I talked to a lady with employee customer cafe yesterday and she was just as confused as we are. How do they know which phones go where and for who? All I wanted was confirmation my order was placed. Not even a date when it would show up and she couldn't give that to me. The store told me if I had a receipt that was good enough and I would get a phone.

My order was the second one out of the store on Friday morning so I don't see why mine would be delayed at all.

I called Sprint to check on my order since I have not had a status update posted.  Come to find out, due to the store where I ordered the phone, updates are not posted to the Sprint Site and cannot be given by phone because they have no way to trace it.  I would have to call the store that I ordered the phone to check on the status..... WT :censored:!!!  Wish they would have told me this earlier!!! 

 

I called the store and they do not know if it will be in the shipment that they are scheduled to receive later today around 3PM.  if it is in the shipment, they will call and let me know.

Good luck on them tracking it. I placed my order at a corporate location and they're the ones that told me my receipt was good enough. They also said there is no other way to track the phone and they had no idea what care was talking about.

The lady on employee care actually had the store reported to fraud to have them check out how the store is handling themselves cuz she was so upset with how they handled the situation.

I would be fine if my phone makes it in tomorrow afternoon's shipment instead of today's.  Would work out perfectly for my commute home from work, and I wouldn't have the distraction of a new phone while at the office. 

 

Edit:  Because lets face it.  If I can pick it up tomorrow morning before work, I am going to.  And I won't get nearly enough stuff done that I need to.  :D

So I thought I would offer up my possible avenue of upgrading to an iPhone 6/6 Plus at a new/upgrade price.

 

I renewed my contact in December of last year.  I called and asked about my Upgrade Now fee and was told by the rep that it would be $250 for each of my lines (I have 3 lines on a 1500 ED plan). 

 

The rep was very honest with me and although he did his sales pitch for the Easy Pay and iPhone for life options, he told me buying my early upgrade and staying on the ED plan is the best deal for me. 

 

He also told me that they are giving a minimum of $200 buy back credit for any iPhone above a 4.  That would mean I could roll into a Sprint corporate Store with a iPhone 4 I bought off Craig's list for $25 (his suggestion) and turn it in and really only be charged $50 on my next bill for the early upgrade and be able to get an iPhone 6 or 6+ for a new/upgrade contract price.  Then I could sell my current phone on eBay or whatever.

 

Just another option for some of you to think about.

      iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's newest flagship phones, and the successors to Apple's 2017 iPhone X. They have the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and faster FaceID, and come in a beautiful Gold Stainless Steel finish in addition to the Silver & Space Gray options. They are available in the same 5.8" Super Retina display as with the X, and the bigger 6.5" Super Retina. They are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations.
      Apple added Dual SIM technology to the 2018 iPhone's, with one physical SIM, and one eSIM. (eSIM feature not currently supported by Sprint, but is said to be coming later). These phones also feature IP68 water-resistance (iPhone X was IP67) which gives you protection in water for up to 30 minutes in up to 2m of water.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 12:01 AM MST
       
      Many of us enjoy the freedom that rooting or jailbreaking our phones gives. Adding custom ROMs, removing “bloatware” or Carrier IQ, and adding additional controls are just the start. We knowingly take the risk that that we may turn our phone into a brick, and our warranty will likely not cover repair or replacement. But will we knowingly commit a criminal act to unlock our phones?
      Apple has claimed that jailbreaking the iPhone was in conflict with copyright laws. Given the amount of time they spent locking down iOS, it’s no surprise they oppose it. In July 2010, the U.S. Copyright Office eventually decided that jailbreaking and rooting was not a violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), as long as it was not done with the intent of circumventing copyright. However, this decision was not permanent. If it is allowed to expire next month, jailbreaking and rooting could be considered breach of the DMCA.
      Development websites like XDA started out with the public perception that they were underground gatherings of hackers and pirates. Since the U.S. Copyright Office published the finding that jailbreaking and rooting was not illegal, those development websites have become widely popular and have largely changed the public's perception. Even Steve Kondik, aka “Cyanogen”, creator of the widely popular Android ROM CyanogenMod was hired by Samsung.
      Due to the liberties that millions of us enjoy about to be removed due to the sunseting DCMA, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has begun a campaign to keep our phones free. They are undertaking a campaign to convince the U.S. Copyright Office that we should have the right to unlock not only our smartphones, but our tablets and video game consoles. They have a petition that they will send to the U.S. Copyright Office, and they are asking for Concrete examples of legal uses of jailbreaking that “will help show the Copyright Office why they should renew and expand the exemptions for jailbreaking.”

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Friday, February 3, 2012 - 2:00 PM MST
       
      The iPhone is something many people see as a status symbol. Many who have never owned one, long for their upgrade date so they can go out and buy the "exclusive" iPhone that they have been denied access to for years. Even some who had the iPhone, and then switched carriers, long to repurchase another. Yes, the iPhone is a well made smartphone with access to a loaded app store, and has many desirable features. But is it really better than Windows Phone, Blackberry or Android models?
      When Apple entered into a contract with AT&T, they remanufactured the RAZR craze and how the artificial scarcity of the device created such huge demand. The RAZR was a good device, and you may argue it was well ahead of other phones at the time of its release, but the other manufacturers caught up quickly. Apple used a similar strategy and it has paid off immensely. The iPhone is now available on the top 3 carriers in the U.S., but is still seen as a status symbol in many circles. As if only a few people have access to it. One could make a strong argument that the Samsung Galaxy SII is a superior smartphone, but still many customers line up to get the iPhone instead, because their inner hoarder says they NEED it, and the products perceived coolness and limited availability only add to the whole experience.
      The concept of artificial scarcity is simple. You take a product that is plentifully available to manufacture in mass, but limit distribution to a limited time, limited area, or in the case of the iPhone, limited retail outlets.
      The strategy has worked perfect for Disney. Why let your movies make the gradual descent to the $3.99 Wal-Mart bargain bin? Just keep "taking them out of the vault" and offering them at full price for a few months every couple years and people pull their credit cards out to pay $17.99 for an 85 year old movie and thank Disney for "allowing" them the opportunity to purchase Snow White. Oh, and you get to be a part of a limited privileged club.
      Another notable example is McDonald's McRib. If it was on the menu full time, many people either wouldn't bother going to McDonalds or would order something else, but artificial scarcity commands us to rush in to McDonalds and get several McRibs at a time because we won't have another chance at it for another year. What do we end up with, besides a belly ache and a reason why we don't normally eat at McDonalds?
      We should be immune to this form of advertising by now, as we are constantly inundated with limited time availability and special edition products all around us. However it is still alive and well here on Planet Earth, because it still works. Big time.
      Can Apple keep the air of exclusivity over its iPhone as it continues to broaden its distribution? Or will smartphone buyers move on to other devices? Only time will tell. But many doubt that Apple will play its hand as well in an era post Steve Jobs.

    • Here where I live we have 4 Sprint Stores and 2 T-Mobile Stores. With one T-Mobile and one Sprint store in the mall up the street I’m sure one of them will close. With the other Sprint locations either rebranding or closing completely. 
    • I know that are as part of the merger Dish agreed that they will will convert a number of Sprint's stores into Dish stores.
    • There are those who see technology as magic and then there are those of us who see it as science and try to understand the how and why it works. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
    • On recent versions of Android, you are not likely to see it update every second except for in specific scenarios, but I'm glad it's updating regularly for you! For the benefit of whoever is interested.. signal updates from the OS are likely to be more frequent (but not guaranteed) if your device is moving fairly quickly (ie in a vehicle), and you are actively transferring data over the mobile network. When the connection is idle (including when you are using another connection method, like Wi-Fi), some things are not updated as frequently. Android does not publicly state anything much more specific than that. In reality, the signal strength is constantly changing, every millisecond, faster than the screen can even update.. but there's no reason for any mobile device to monitor it that intensely, the CPU and power impacts would be crazy. An overwhelming majority of mobile users don't even need it updating even every 10 seconds. As of last year, over 314 million Americans had mobile phones.. with some quick math, SCP is on less than 0.0032% of them 😆
