    I need my phone to get here so I can do the same! Did you send your old phone to Gazelle on Wednesday? less than a week turn around is pretty amazing.
    It was SUPER fast turnaround. I was shocked! I'd never done this before so I was not realyl sure what I was to expect. I packed it up Wed night after I got my new 5S activated, and then sent it out Thursday morning. I went with the FedEx label and I used my own box. I had an old 4S box in my closet of nerdery and I put it in that to keep it from shifting a lot, then put that box in another that was filled with old plastic shopping bags for padding. It arrived at the facility yesterday morning.

    it has been over 26 hours since my status changed to: preparing for shipment...
    Should I be worried?
    Looks like most people got past that status within 12 hours...

    After moving my stuff over from my 5 to my gold 5s (which finally arrived today), I can say that this thing rocks. It's noticeably faster than the 5, and the camera is awesome. I don't seem to get the purple haze I got sometimes with my 5 camera on this either. They must have tweaked the sapphire lens cover.

    Well I ordered on the 22, the "less popular" color, space grey 32gb, unlocked, and still processing item, hope for it to change to anything in this week... -_-

    I've been at "preparing to ship" for over 24 hours also! Apple's already taken the money from my bank account so hopefully our precious phones will be en route to our homes in the next day or so! Fingers crossed!

    I got my Gazelle payment today already. I just got my phone Wed! Sweet!
    Got my new iPhone 5s last Tuesday, dropped my 4S 16GB in the mailbox on Saturday, Gazelle got it on Monday, and I just got confirmation a few minutes ago that I'm getting $236.25 for it in a few days, which covers the price of the phone and AT&T's upgrade fee. I locked in the price at its peak.

    Prices have not dropped that much since the new phones came out, even though they're giving away 4Ss for free. See how much different iPhone models are going for. It looks like more memory doesn't help the resale value much, but carrier makes a big difference, with AT&T leading the way. Always say it's flawless, if it's not badly messed up, the worse that'll happen is they knock ten bucks off if they disagree. And did you know that Gazelle doesn't want the cords or accessories, so you get to keep all those, that's worth like $70 bucks if you buy them separately new from Apple, and it's always convenient to have spares. (So, the 30-pin plug doesn't fit the new phone, but it still fits my iPad 2.)

    My friend did the same thing. Verizon & AT&T are the 1s getting top pay!

    I ordered the iPhone 5S gold 64 at 3:14 am EDT on the 20th. I was expecting 7-10 days shipment, but when it stated preparing for shipment on Monday. I got excited I would receive my new phone this week. Now I am getting frustrating waiting for it to ship. It feels like such a tease. Going on 48 hours at preparing for shipment.

    Mine switched from processing to "preparing to ship" but the sim card still says processing. Does anyone know what this means? Will it ship shortly?

    I went with the Apple short corded adapter which takes care of that problem and puts less stress (due to weight) on the lighting connector then the solid adapter does.

    I ordered mine the same day 9/20 and at 8:04 am. I ordered a contracted 32GB Silver one and it is still stating "Processing Item".
