No, they (AT&T) will send you an email with the order number and a link to check the order on line. It took about 5 days before I received my email. You will get a second email when the phone ships. Then when you use the link from the first email it will give you the tracking number. Mine shipped FedX and arrived at the store when they said it would.
Then I got an email saying it was at the store and they would hold it for 7 days.
Yeah, they did, and they sent me 2 emails which are...here:
"Thank you for shopping with AT&T. Your iPhone has been reserved. An email will be sent when your iPhone order is shipped.
iPhone Order Details:
Order Number: 220226
Shipping Zip Code: ***
Apple iPhone 8 GB 3G BLK Phone

Looks correct. The word "here" should be a "link" to the AT&T order site. Copy the order number using copy and paste. Click on the link, in the 1st prompt say use order number, paste the order number into the next prompt, put the zip code of the AT&T store in the next box. That is where they are shipping it to.
Keep in mind the backorder amounts go back and forth thrugh out the day. You can't be sure of anything until you see a tracking number show up.
Good luck, also my phone came in last Friday and I was not able to pick it up until today. I called the store the other day and they said don't worry your phone is set aside with your name on it. It was ordered for you, we will not sell to anyone else.
I haven't heard of any apple sites tracking iphone orders at AT&T. AT&T has some tools to track orders on this page: https://www.wireless.att.com/order_status/
I've worked up my own solution to provide simple tracking system with RSS support, you can read about it here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=5892654#post5892633
Best of luck!
