    people waiting in line wait for hours outside a store possibly in the cold and rain, with no gaurentee that they will get one. those of us who stay up all night or wake up to do so stay up sitting on our couch or in our beds, or sleep and set an alarm, make a few clicks, go back to bed and wait for delivery. both have perks. either way. we get it the same day, those of us who got in in time...no big deal.

    on another note, ordered from apple, status finally changed to preparing to ship. card has been charged, but still no confirmation email (not worried about that, just threw that in there so anyone else whos status might not yet be changed and hasnt recieved an comfirmation email doesnt worry)
    Also with ordering online it saves the companies some money that they would have to pay to one of their reps via commission so I can see why they would want people to order online. I know that's why they always use to never do rebates if you ordered online they only did it when you ordered in store.

    For those of you trying this link: https://preorder.verizonwireless.com...cSearchInit.do

    From verizon wireless. Use your "Preorder Confirmation" number, don't use your Order Number. I was making that mistake and that is why it wasn't coming up. I feel kinda stupid now, but maybe there are other people in the same boat!

    Mine says: "We received your order and it is in process" expected ship date 9/21. Hopefully it ships soon!

    It looks like in my previous post I had the incorrect order time listed. I preordered my iPhone 5 at 1:15AM (not 2AM) PDT via Apple.com and have the 2 week shipping estimate (on the order status page it lists an Oct. 5th delivery date). Crazy how they sold out so fast!

    Where did you purchase yours? If apple store, did it originally say ship in 2 weeks or something else? Also, when did you place your order?

    Thanks.

    Most people getting tracking #s now ordered from the Apple Store and since Apple is shipping them directly from the factory, it needs the extra lead time. We've seen this year in and year out with pre-orders

    Kinda confused! I just called Verizon and the rep told me that my order will ship on the 21st, so asked if he meant I will get it by then, he said no once they get the shipment from apple it will then come to me. So I called back and talked to someone else and this rep said that I will get it on the 21st! SO CONFUSED!! lol

    I am not worried about getting it on the 21st. Honestly I think we will get them on Wednesday the 19th. Think about it. Thats the day they are releasing iOS 6. This is what happened two years ago when I preordered the iPhone 4. The Verizon people typically don't know much at all. I learned that last time I preordered too. Just sit tight and enjoy the suspense. We should all have our phones in no time.

    Never call verizon because they have no clue and will give you 10 different answers.

    I hope so since I finished my order by 2:59AM EST! This will be the first time I pre-order any phone but I've had every single iPhone since the first one on AT&T and moved to Verizon on the iPhone 4 because of coverage. Now does Verizon send another email once it ships?

    I had my preorder done on Verizon's website at 12:04 am. As of right now, my status on their website is still "order received and in process." I'm hoping for a change in status soon!

    I'm guessing that Verizon doesn't do a good job on updating the system, and I feel the same way. If I don't get the phone by friday I'm going to be really upset, staying u late won't be worth it anymore!

    I haven't lost hope that we will get them Friday. I'm sure they just update their statuses less than Apple does. My email said "Delivered by 9/21" so they should make good on that.
