did you check the box for text updates tho ? i remember when the 3gs was launched i didnt get any dispatch or tracking emails till 3 hours after the handset arrived !! as t hey had that many to send out so i wouldnt worry to much about not getting the text

Upgraded at 3pm and have had no text or email. Not overly fussed about getting it before everybody else to be honest, but I am looking forward to recieving my new shiny phone! Chill people, chill!

Yes its possible our orders have been sent, and one reason or another haven't received the dispatch email/text.
Its frustrating though as i'm working tomorrow and need the confirmation so that I can arrange for someone to be at home.

Well I just called CS for an update to be told that my order was on "backlog"
Ordered Friday 7th.
I think all orders are tachnically on Backlog though until the stick is received, i.e you could have placed your order on Friday and called them Saturday and they would have said "your order is on back log" I am perhaps being overly optimistic but your order being on backlog doesn't mean it is not coming tomorrow.
However if it says the same thing come this evening, then your chances of getting your phone tomorrow are about the same as a snowflake in hell.

I would be slightly more relaxed about the sitaution if I wasn't already paying a grossly inflated tariff for a phone I don't have yet! All I want is to know I can go and pick it up tomorrow and that I won't be paying a lot extra for an extended period of time.
I didn't check the text box, wish I had now, so only an email update for me, if I even get one. If I hear nothing by later on today I will ring, I'll even ring the branch I have to pick it up from and try and get some information out of them if I have to!

I've got to say I'm getting more and more amused by peoples posts on this thread. Get a life people! Your nice new handset will be here soon. The increased tariff your paying now covers the cost of your new technology over the life of your contract and, (as will be the case in most instances), also takes account of any outstanding value from your old contract/device because your upgrading early.
I too have pre-ordered a shiny new 4S and am looking forward to receipt. At this point I have not received a delivery notification but whether it comes on Friday or early next week makes no difference to me. After all, I've survived with my 3GS since Vodafone launched it, a few more days won't be catastrophic to my connectivity with the world.
Chill out, get a beer and relax, your 4S is coming and if it's as much of a technology leap as the original iPhone was then we'll all be very happy

@Scout - I do agree in principle.
But experience tells me that someone at VF is saying "Hold out, we should have an answer for them shortly"
I've been through this with the Blackberry Storm, Storm 2, iPhone 4 and now the 4S... So I'm kinda used to the VF way of thinking

I received an email this morning saying "You should already have received the exciting news that your new iPhone (order number.....) is all packed up and on its way", but I haven't received any such email (or a text message).
Also - there is a tracking number in the email I received this morning which it says I can use on the ParcelForce website, but when I search for this tracking number I am told "We are currently unable to confirm that status of your parcel. Please check the number and try again"
Has anyone else received this message? Am I to presume that my phone has not been shipped? i preordered on Friday 7th at about midday.

Anyway the tracking number in this email now shows as delivered so hopefully that means its now instore! Ordered last Friday 2pm, hope this helps someone!!
