    Is it normal for them to pass 2 days without updating the tracking?
    What it says:

    Processed through USPS Sort Facility, October 22, 2011, 7:19 pm, CINCINNATI, OH 45235
    Acceptance, October 22, 2011, 12:01 am, WEST CHESTER, OH 45069

    Expected Delivery Date: October 24, 2011

    Any information would be appreciated. :?

    Sometimes they screw up. I ordered a part for my macbook in june, it just arrived 2 weeks ago... from cali to ma.

    I wouldn't say it's normal, but human error occurs.

    News Flash: USPS' tracking system is not real time like almost every other carrier tracking system in the world.

    It is run by the US Government so why do you expect it to work?

    It is better than it was a few years ago but still very hit and miss.

    Probably won't track again until the parcel hits the delivery PO, if then.

    Have low expectations and you won't be disappointed. :)

    ^^^What he said.

    If you are lucky it will update after the item is delivered. Generally the tracking works better if you take the item to the Post Office because they scan it into the system. If you prepay the postage online and generate postage with your printer the tracking may not update until it arrives at the destination address, if at all.

    More than 'normal' in their world of chariots. Don't worry...

    Usually the stuff arrives before they even update the delivery date.

    USPS will tell you it is NOT a tracking system. It is what they say it is -- delivery confirmation. The only input you should expect is when the package is delivered.
