    Well I still have a lot of time to wait....Ordered a couple of days ago from Apple Online and says 3-4 weeks. Does it really take this long or Do most people actually get theirs earlier?

    I've been trying to find out myself, since I ordered last Thursday, (9/25). I would assume since the ship by date on Verizon's page hasn't changed, (as of 10:40 this morning), it will ship sooner. However, I'm not expecting it to ship any earlier than a week before 10/26, especially since they're most likely giving any remaining pre-orders priority. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    Yeah, I ordered on the 25th as well via apple.com and it says delivery between October 25-31. I had planned to order it on the 14th but those plans fell through. I haven't bought a new iPhone since the 3GS so I figure waiting a month isn't going to kill me if it doesn't get delivered until that date. It would be nice though if it shipped earlier than their estimate thought.

    I wonder what the earliest someone has gotten it after ordering it after the launch date. It would be hard to imagine someone ordering it after the launch date getting it before someone who pre-ordered.

    Hate to tell those folks that are still waiting, but.....

    I'm real curious why/how this happened....but I certainly like it.

    I ordered two iPhone5s last Friday night, 28 September 2012, at about 7 PM at the local AT&T store. 1 32G White and 1 64G Black.

    Just before I did this I checked the Apple Online store and it said 3 to 4 weeks for both. When I went to the store and purchased them the clerk told me 3 to 4 weeks for both.

    The e-mail I got the next day said 2 to 3 weeks for both.

    I got the 64G Black one yesterday 2 October and the 32G White one just a few minutes ago on 3 October.

    All I can say is WOW. The iPhone gods must have been looking after this situation. Amazing.

    Thoughts on why? Just lucky?

    Same thing happened to me this week. I ordered a white 64G from Sprint Monday morning. I got an email saying it would be three weeks. Monday night I got another email saying it had been shipped. I had it in my hands Tuesday evening. What a pleasant surprise!

    Hmm, not sure if you're all just lucky or if ordering in store at Verizon was just a bad idea. On a side note, would have ordered it directly through Apple.com, but they don't support Verizon business accounts, grrr.

    Did you get white are black? What capacity did you get?

    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!

    Well, it sure would be nice if it shipped earlier than the 3-4 estimate.

    Here's to hoping you guys will get yours earlier than expected as well.

    Hi Guys,

    Great to find you all here- I like forums, and to find one that deals with Apple Devices is AWESOME!

    I ordered my Black iPhone 5 from AT&T over the phone on the evening of the 18th and still nothing. I keep checking status several times a day and nothing has changed. I have however called in to AT&T customer service and they've been less than honest and evasive... a bit frustrating to say the least. I wish I would have waited in line at the Apple store now! (Hindsight is 20/20)!

    Nothing to do at this point but wait- the past 20+ days have all been nail biters though, as I'm sure many of you know exactly what I'm talking about Good luck gang!

    I ordered a black 32 AT&T on 9/25 with an eta of Oct 24-30. I keep hoping it will come sooner but I doubt it. I'm getting antsy though.

    I am in the same boat. Ordered online from Apple on the 16th and my order still says "processing items" with a delivery date of Oct 10-Oct 16.

    All I can say is that I'm a colossal ***** for waiting so long to pull the trigger. I thought that I might be able to sneak one through radioshack. They did have phones they were allocating to stores however they were all 16GB. I just laughed and left, I can't manage 16 gb anymore. So I placed my order with AT&T seeing as how Apple retail was quoting 3-4 weeks and AT&T was only quoting 14-21 days. I saw an extra week sooner and decided to go for it. However at&t was 14-21 business days, ugh nice trick. It was marginally cheaper however. So either way I'm looking at 1st week of Nov. which seems like an eternity now.

    I ordered my 5 from AT&T store on Sept 24, showed up on Oct 3. I was also quoted ~ 3 weeks. Glad to get it early.

    Ordered on the 18th via phone with AT&T, still no change on the status when I check AT&T site, neither has my credit card been charged. I've been lied to more than several times by AT&T and am just flabbergasted at the way they've handled this entire launch. If I had the dough I'd cancel the whole kit and caboodle with them and go directly to Verizon just out of principle.

    Terrible show AT&T, terrible show...

    Called pretty much all my local Verizon stores, was trying to switch my iphone for a higher capacity one and all of them said the same thing. They are not getting iPhones until the 26 of October.

    I'm not sure if I'm lucky, getting trolled, or going to get a pre-scuffed phone but I only put in my order via VZW.com on 10-02 and 8 days later (today) it is shipping, arriving in two days. It was supposed to ship 'by 10-26' (aka on 10-26 :P) but it seems Verizon got some stock earlier than expected.

    I ordered the fairly popular Black/Slate 32GB model so I'm extra surprised it is shipping so soon.

    Now's a good time to purchase that nano-to-microSIM adapter.

    I finally gave up trying to find a phone locally after I canceled my white pre-order because I wanted the black one and decided to order through Sprint.com last night a It says on the site ships in 1 week for the size I ordered but I got an email today saying it shipped with a tracking number. The # hasn't updated so who knows if they just printed a label or actually shipped but time will tell
