Progress for me, a little bit! Pre-ordered evening Aug. 23, ship to home. Got email 11:39 Eastern this a.m. of "changes to your wireless account". Keeping fingers x'd for delivery to home tomorrow or Monday... And have cases OTW too.
I've been quietly following this thread since pre-ordering on the evening of Aug. 23. I chose ship-to-home so I've NO idea where I'm at in any queue, but, I'm getting REALLY excited. And no regrets after seeing the Apple reveals today.
