    Everyone I know who ordered the IPhone 5S online from VZW in the first minutes of the sale received a by 9/24 shipping date. I know that based on the site refresh, I saw the very first iPhone 5S order screenshot and it showed the 9/24 date. Every phone I have purchased and/or viewed upon initial release by VZW shipped that day. This was not a preorder, so why the shipping delay?

    Has anyone received a VZW shipping notice? My order remains "in process."

    Verizon has been historically correct with ship dates. Que sera sera. You got one coming in the size and color you want. Enjoy that...

    Don't stress too bad. Every phone I have ordered online from Verizon shipped on the exact day the quoted. Don't really know why they aren't shipping until the 24th, but rest assured it will ship that day. More often then not they are overnighted too. I don't know for sure but I would expect to see it the 25th based on past experience with them.

    AT&T did the exact same thing and I ordered through Apple.

    The only one who can answer the question of why, is someone working very high up at Apple, so we'll probably never know.

    Monday is 9/24... even if it "ships" before then (Sat/Sun), odds are extremely good that the carrier won’t pick it up before Monday. But you should have your phone next week. Congrats!

    Not that it makes a big difference, 9/24 is actually Tuesday...
