    Mine was waiting for me at my door. Fedex tracking was not working on this one.

    Well that didn't take long. Did a quick sync and backup of my old phone, plugged in the iPhone 4 and was activated within 5 minutes. Now I'm just waiting for all of my music and apps to sync.

    Haven't looked real close but haven't seen the yellow issue yet.

    Man, there are times when I really love Apple. They make things so easy switching phones.

    I order a lot of stuff online and 99% of the time the tracking info is behind actual events. Many a time I've received the delivery and the tracking still says it is in some other state.

    Fedex tracking is delayed today, says so right on the tracking pages. Probably from the 600k+ people checking their status every 30 secs.

    Usually UPS and Fedex tracking updates on time for me, though UPS has the lead. Fedex is proving to me why I hate them as they had said by 3pm today, have now removed that line, and it is 6pm with no delivery yet (says out for delivery)....

    Man, the flash is brighter than I thought it was going to be. It went into a windowless bathroom and closed the door. It works really well.

    Mine have arrived. Charging them now according to the pamphlet. I wonder how long that is going to take?

    Mine arrived about 80 percent charged. The AT&T pamphlet says:
    1. Leave new iPhone off and charge it fully

    Perhaps the Apple-ordered phones come fully charged.

    My phones were nearly hot to the touch when they arrived via UPS 15 minutes ago. They've cooled off some but I may take it easy on them till they get to room temp. Kinda makes me nervous.

    * edit *
    Takes about 20-25 minutes to fully charge

    Here is some video I shot with the iPhone 4 in our backyard. The quality is quite good at 720p:

    Also attached are pictures. One is full view, the other is half zoom. As you can see, the zoomed picture looks a bit grainy but these are less than ideal lighting conditions.

    Yes, those are our dogs barking.

    I will ditto that.

    Both the ear speaker and speakers on the bottom of the phone seem louder.
