    I ordered my gold 32GB from Rogers this morning and of course it is on back order even though I am number 1 on the business account list. When I called, They wouldn't even give me an ETA of when it would ship. From what I've seen and read, the gold ones are going to be hard to come by and I am not good with being patient...lol!!

    waiting for my "your order is ready for pick up" email via best buy. Ordered 32gb black. I checked the status and says confirming inventory. They should know the inventory before placing orders!

    That’s how their process works. And remember, you (we) ordered it in the middle of the night when there is no one in the stores to process the inventory... the note we are waiting for won’t come until someone pulls a unit, sets it aside and puts our name on it. It will come.

    Same for me and AT&T on the timing and hiccups. Told me 7-14 business days. Several hours later I got an email saying October 21-30. An hour after that the AT&T website still says 7-10 days. LAME!

    What really annoys me is that I'm going to lose my decent Gazelle order if I don't send it by the 15th and had I known that it would take so long I'd have ordered and picked up at Best Buy!
    Did you order from Apple or from ATT? I did Apple, but had issues getting my upgrade eligibility to go through. I just checked my account on ATT's site and I am still eligible for upgrade, so it's definitely not all processed yet.

    My husband normally comes to bed around 2-3am (works different hours) so he heard my alarm go off and me go barreling down the hallway into my office to get on my computer to order. He got a chuckle out of how excited I was. When it all went through and I got my confirmation email I was clapping and jumping up and down like a little kid.
    That’s pretty freaking awesome. My wife was snoring.

    I ordered 64 GB Gold, T-mobile when Apple came back online. Ships 1-3 days.

    I checked right after I placed my order, I checked the Apple Store and it said the phones were now shipping 7-10 days. I checked this morning, and it now says October. I'm glad I got in when I did.

    Just ordered mine. Verizon, Space Gray, 16 Gb ships on the 24th of Sep. Glad I have it ordered because the other option was to call around next friday and try to find a store within 100 miles that had one.

    I ordered through the Apple store app. My ATT account says I upgraded today, so Apple is moving.

    Don't worry, I've had that problem in the past and just got it a day or two later.

    Placed my order last night for a 32 GB Space Gray from AT&T at about 12:05 A.M. PDT and chose 2-3 day shipping. It says delivery should be from September 27 - October 1, but I'm hoping for sooner!

    I went with ordering through Verizon because their site started selling before I could even get the Apple store to come back from being down...

    My first time not going through Apple - just praying everything goes smoothly with Verizon shipping on time (says ships 1-3 days, by Sept 24th) ... Doesn't mention delivers by
    Same situation for me. I was able to get through to Apple right before I checked out at Verizon, but Apple wouldn't let me order 2 phones via carrier upgrade, so I just ended up going Verizon.

    I normally would be since I get up for work by 530. I didn't sleep that great afterwards because I was wired again.

    I ordered through the Apple store app. My ATT account says I upgraded today, so Apple is moving.
    I will probably check again in a little bit. I figured it needed time to catch up. It took like 9 tries to get through to the screen where I was "approved" or whatever. I had an apple g/c from my mother in law that she got me for my bday last year for the iphone 5 and I never ended up using it or getting the 5.

    I HOPE!

    Yep same thing for me....even though I ordered mine at 12:04am which said 7-14 days, I got the email that says will ship between Oct 21-Oct 31....but then website to check order status says Oct 1 - Oct 30. I was expecting this stuff with shipping dates with AT&T

    Whats worse is that AT&T's website still shows 7-14 days ....LAME is right.

    I'm in Canada right now on vacation. But I ordered the phone at 4:01 AM and my order went through with no problems. I'm expecting to get it sometime between September 30 and October 2 with 1-3 day ship time.

    I ordered from Apple.

    I was actually surprised at how easy it was to order. The last iPhone I ordered was the 4, which was a complete hassle (I've been on Android ever since).

    No lag, no slow down, nothing! Everything went through and the process was simple. Good job, Apple!

    I ordered through the AT&T website. It's changed again and is not showing an October 1-10 ship date. Better, and that should get me my Gazelle offer (assuming that's a good date) but considering I was Johnny on the spot for ordering it's rather messed up. Seems to me that the upgrade check has been causing some problems. They should take and process the orders immediately, then check for upgrade eligibility prior to shipping. That would space out the website server rush, and they can't charge you until they're shipping it anyway.

    Nope, not yet. I think it's still too early, honestly. Hopefully we'll start seeing them towards the end of the day.

    Ordered a gold 32 gig from Verizon at 12:02 am and was given a ship date of 9/24. Checked it this afternoon and the ship date had been changed to 10/21. So I cancelled my order.

    No, I checked a little while ago to see if it was processed or anything and it's in the Processing state now, vs the "we got your order".

    Couldn't stay awake last night. Got to work around 0745, and after checking for important emails, picked up a Silver 5S 64GB using the Apple Store app on my 4S. The sync to my Verizon account and upgrade status went through with zero problems. It's in Processing status with an Oct 7-10 Delivers range.

    That's what I've been worried about.

    I'm usually up at midnight (Apple Daylight Time) but it was a very long day, so I set an alarm for 11:55 (good thing) the Apple site was still down at midnight, so I tried the Apple Store app on my phone, and it already had all my info: Apple ID, AT&T account, upgrade eligibility, credit card, shipping address, etc. The only thing I needed to enter was the security code, I prayed I remembered it right because I got a new card recently and didn't want to hunt for my wallet to check, but it went through no problem, done by 12:04.

    I went with the free shipping, 'cuz it said ships 1-3 business days. Now it says "Delivers: Sep 30 - Oct 2 by Standard Shipping", that's 10-12 days. That should be just enough time to get it to get it to Gazelle, they're paying me $236 for my 4S 16GB, which covers my [space grey] 5s 16GB and AT&T's upgrade fee, although not the $60 sales tax.

    Although I hope that it's like Amazon ship dates, where they say 2-3 weeks, and it arrives in 3 days.

    Me too! Still haven't received my shipping notice though. I'm sure others are still waiting as well. I think we'll all see our 5s' early-to-mid next week.
