    With the value of the package, they will more than likely require a signature for the delivery.
    I highly doubt it. When UPS delivered my Surface Pro 3 + Type Cover back in June 2014, they left it at the door without even ringing the bell. At least it arrived on release date. :\

    Also, UPS seems to deliver on Saturdays, but not on Thanksgiving.

    When I preordered Band 2 from MS store it said "shipping by Oct 30". I actually got the band on Oct 30, so I hope it's the same deal here.
    If that is the case, would really hope for it to be the same with the phone!

    Read in another thread that it's conceivable that MS Stores will have the XL in hand on or around November 25th. My pre order from MS website says it's shipping by December 11. Bummer that they don't fulfill pre orders before they stock their stores. Can I cancel my web order and go directly to the store and pick one up? Nearest store is 4 hours away in Salt Lake, but I will actually be down there on the 28th.

    I'd imagine it's only enough to fullfill the in store pre-orders, not just for stock.

    Looks like it's not happening. :(
    I spoke with the local Microsoft Store and they said they'll have some 950XLs on the 26th. They'll open from 7pm-11:30pm. I'm tempted to cancel my order online and just go to the store. I'll be out of town on Thanksgiving... What was Microsoft thinking?!

    I called Microsoft to inquire about canceling my order and was told it was for sure shipping out On the 25th.

    When I ordered the Band 2, it said "Ships by October 30".

    The package was delivered ON October 30th... and it DID require a signature.

    Based on this, I might be inclined to expect my phone to be delivered on November 25th, however, the circumstances are different. With the Band 2, I had a tracking number on October 25th... five full days before delivery. Right now, with only two days to go, there's no indication that my phone has been shipped yet.

    I guess there's nothing I can do but wait and see.

    And of course, there are no MS stored in Central California... Oh well, I guess I'll just get it next week.

    I am glad to know that I am not the only one that cant wait to get the new phone. I had to leave my carrier because they did not support GSM. I bought a Lumia 640 to use until the 950XL comes in and I love it. I had been on Android for years. I saw a report that said the Microsoft stores would have the new phones on Nov. 26 in the stores. I preordered in the store in Oct. The local M store (about 75 miles away) will be open from 6:00PM to 12:00AM on the 26th. So about 4:00 PM I will excuse myself from the other turkeys sitting around and head to the store. I was told by the store that preorders could be picked up on a first come first served basis and if they ran out you would have to wait for the next batch to arrive.

    I agree. I'm still in this boat as well. I expect my order to remain "in process" until the 25th at this point. If I hear any differently, I will post back. As of today, however, it's still scheduled to ship by the 25th, but has not shipped early.

    My credit card was just charged for the 950 XL online order I made on microsoftstore.com. Shipping status has not been updated yet. I ordered on November 17th around 9:30am.

    I just replied to the "Waiting Room" thread but I'll repeat it here: My credit card was just charged so it looks like my phone is shipping today.

    Same here. The CC got charged and Capital One's fraud protection kicked in even. I really hope they ship from within US, overnight, then there is still a chance!

    Ditto. I just saw a charge for the price of the phone + tax show up on my credit card. Crossing my fingers and hoping it'll get here by Wednesday...

    I don't know, I have no confidence that MS can do online shopping, and shipping, at the same time

    I see it on my cc as well. Fingers crossed. Would be great to have it for Thanksgiving.

    Mine shows on my cc as pending, so it still may ship tomorrow. Keeping hope alive for today, though.

    Update: Like others, I received the shipping email tonight from MS, but UPS does not have it in their system for tracking as of yet. Will have to wait til morning to check.

    It would be great to get it before Thanksgiving. I confess to being irritated by Microsoft's apparent inability to fathom how online shipping works. Most of the big consumer sellers figured this out a long time ago, and have managed to give prospective buyers a number of clear options for delivery. I do a lot of shopping online this time of year. As the holidays approach, its no small thing for sellers to hit the deadlines they have promised. So it defies logic that Microsoft would roll out its usual mixed up confusion and have shipping straddle right over Thanksgiving. In the US, at least, many companies give people off Thursday and Friday, so if it doesn't get there before Thanksgiving, it pushes to Monday. If that was clearly the case, maybe I'd dispense with the express shipping choice and save the courier the aggravation of futilely trying to deliver on Friday.

    So I hope I'm wrong, but I'm going to put my money on these things shipping tomorrow.

    I (re)ordered a Surface Book this weekend and my CC was charged and I got a tracking number about 30 mins ago. My order page also shows that the Surface Book has been shipped. The 950XL, OTOH, still shows in process even though I've already been charged. As inept as the MS Store online ordering has been so far, I doubt that i'm going to get a second shipping notification later today. Tomorrow also makes sense in that overnight orders will be getting theirs on the 25th.

    You are one of the lucky ones, then. I placed my order within an hour of when orders went live on the MS Store, but they haven't hit my credit card yet.
