    Online (AT&T site). Looks like it's shipping Next Day Air.
    That's what I figured. I ordered in-store on Oct. 9 and still backordered. Although I did get the black one, so maybe it's just the white ones getting shipped faster.

    My iPhone should be arriving Thursday afternoon, a week before their estimated date! I hope Hurricane Sandy doesn't delay it...keeping my fingers crossed.

    I ordered on Oct 7. Mine showed backordered until I received my shipment email yesterday. I should have my new iphone 5 tomorrow.

    My iPhone has been in my city and on the truck "out for delivery" for two days. I have wasted two evenings expecting the phone to arrive. Now the website says to expect delivery next week. I am. Very disappointed. Why does apple use UPS? I have never liked them. FedEx is a much better shipper AFAIC. oh well what can I do but wait for it

    I called Apple to initiate an investigation. Just got a notice that they re-ordered my phone. So I am guessing it got "lost" on the truck. So now I am stuck waiting even longer they did say something about "priority" something or other. But the website says I have to wait till mid November! Total bummer. At least my iPhone4 is still working

    So what I'm gathering is phones are being ordered and about a month later they're being shipped and arriving at their destinations?

    I ordered an iPhone 5 on 10/25 and the expected arrival date is 11/27-12/3. Seems like forever away!

    Calm down everyone, you'll get it sooner rather than later.
    Quite easy for those already with a phone to say.

    Stuck in Louisville, KY for a while now...hopefully it starts moving again. Probably delayed because of the storm.

    I got really lucky with mine. I decided to go for the iPhone 5 later than most. It was about a week before the phone was released. I was ready to wait a while, like a month. I was like 9,000 on Rogers website for the 16GB black. I decided to switch and go for the 32GB black and I was around 7,000. Second day the phone was out I went into BestBuy and got the 32GB black on the spot. About 45 minutes after walking in I was walking out with it.

    It is not ship date rather delivery date. Should say "available to ship : delivered by 9/21". At least that's what my confirmation email says.

    Well hopefully you receive it soon! Because if you do, that means mines more than likely around the corner (based on the amount of days you waited to get yours).

    I've heard from multiple people that Best Buy has maintained a healthy stock of iPhone 5's. Surprising, considering they don't have a great reputation where I'm from. It's commonly known that they're losing their spot among top electronics stores.

    I still can't understand for the life of me why Apple doesn't have enough phones to go around.
