    Placed my order on 9/18 with Verizon and received an email with ship date of 10/5. Got an email this morning saying it has shipped. Tracking info with FedEx shows it has left Memphis, TN and is in route. Anyone else get an early shipping surprise from Verizon?

    I pre-ordered my iPhone 5 on the 14th and received it on the 21st. Got a email from apple on the 26th saying my iPhone 5 was ready to be shipped and would be delivered on friday the 28th. I received my second iPhone 5 on the 28th which I did not order . Apple sent me 2 iPhone 5's as of the 28th, so I called them to figure out why I was sent two and they had no record of the second order. The senior Advisor said it was my lucky day because I was not charged for the second iPhone and that I got to keep that device for free too.

    It finally arrived at my local sort facility but they're closed on the weekends. It's in the same city and I have to wait until Monday!

    I gave up on my online order. I checked out the Radio Shack online store availability. Everywhere around the city was sold out but by using zip codes of a few areas just outside the city I found a few with stock. I made some calls to verify and after a short drive to the next county over I came home with my new iPhone 5. It is worth a try if you need one and cannot wait for the uncertainty of your web order.

    Hello all - I have a question for the Canadians - I ordered 2 32 gig iP5's online from Telus on 20 September, and I've not yet got an email or any shipping notifications. Does anyone know when I can expect to hear from them? They said they should arrive on October 12th - is this a rough estimate on Telus' part? or does this mean they will be here on/before that date? Thanks very much. Also I'm in Vancouver, if that's relevant.

    My order still shows "Processing Items" and I placed my order on the 16th from Apple. I will never do this again. This is ridiculous. I keep checking for a shipping status update and nothing!

    So, my gf's and my phones shipped over the weekend. Here's the funny part. We ordered our phones from an AT&T store about 5:30pm(CDT). We ordered them back to back with a rep. My gf's phone shipped FedEx and is scheduled to arrive today. My phone shipped UPS and is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. Would like to know why the difference.

    UGH-Since so many people were commenting on early deliveries I thought I would check on mine. Ordered in store 9/18. Was told delivery date of 10/5. Checked my email confirming order, says delivery by 10/5. When I called Verizon tonight they said ship date of 10/5. I asked why the discrepancy, she didn't know. I would think if I am aware of the gigantic difference between ship and delivery date, Verizon certainly would be aware. She then decided to be flip with me and say it is actually only a few extra days. Well Missy, no it isn't. If they ship on 10/5, but it isn't overnight it could actually be Tuesday, and if I am not home, Wednesday. MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD!!!!

    I ordered mine the sat after launch. (Can't remember the date) Verizon's email confirmation said it would ship on Oct 19th and to my pleasant surprise I received and email this afternoon saying that it has shipped along with my FedEx tracking number. Pumped!
