    When I called she said before the end of October, but to expect it sooner than that.
    I agree! Online orders in the US seem to be moving along...I've been checking stock at all local Apple retail stores and Best Buys (even in surrounding states) and there is nothing in the model I ordered...at least we can keep each other in the loop here

    The last flight from Anchorage that shows up on Flight Aware left nearly an hour ago, no progress reported on my UPS tracking log though...

    I called Apple and they told me to expect mine in November. I had to cancel my order. I'm just casually checking my apple store daily to see if they have my gold.

    Got a little faithful and decided to check the apple site for progress on my phone. It says the apple store is being "updated" at the moment. Am I the only one silently praying it has some kind of relation to my order, or am I just getting too over joyed? lol.

    Ordered: iPhone 5s Gold 16 GB for Sprint from Apple
    Date: Sept. 21st > around 7 AM est
    Progress: Last time I checked (this morning) still at progressing but hopefully it's drifted towards preparing to ship.

    it has to clear customs now before it can depart and customs only works during the day.

    According to UPS it is "On Time" and supposed to arrive tomorrow by EOD.
    I think that is highly unlikely at this point unless UPS has a cargo version of the Concord they don't tell anyone about.

    I believe this route is faster. I found my gold 32gb att n picking it up today. I spent one and a half week checking for it online. At first casually and then the last 4 days frantically. Deals is done no more checking for me.

    I had two orders, one of them (my mother's phone) went straight to alaska from korea and is sitting at UPS as of first thing this morning to be picked up... mine won't get there until tomorrow. Hers didn't depart kentucky until 3:37 PM yesterday, luckily I'm in Ohio so it didn't have to go far from there. Hoping to pick them both up tomorrow on my lunch hour.

    If I've learned one thing from this thread it's this. Don't order from apple. ATT seems to be much faster. Only get gold if you're willing to wait excruciating wait times. However, I am thoroughly pleased with my phone. Great piece of equipment. Everything seems amazing. I feel your pain kids. Hang in there.

    I ordered my 4s from Verizon and it was almost 4 weeks in and not even a shipping date. I canceled with them, walked into an Apple Store and was able to get on immediately. Seems to br random as to who will have stock sooner. What killed this for myself was lack of an expedited shipping option. My only option was standard shipping when ordering. Next time I hope they allow pre-orders. If not I will more than likely just go to the store a couple weeks into the release.

    I think this is too general... I have bought several items from apple and never been disappointed with their service. For me I knew i wanted gold and I was going to have to wait unless I got extremely lucky. I work too much to spend my time stalking stores. I am not upset with apple in the least, they shipped it in exactly the timeframe they projected for me. I got more frustrated with UPS, while I know i didn't request expedited shipping, this is the first time it has taken the full 5 business days plus a weekend thrown in there. Usually it moves much faster but still technically this is my fault as well for not paying extra. Basically it's all a gamble of when you order and what exactly your order is no matter where you order from. It is the gamble you make by ordering online right when a new tech toy comes out (when there is no pre-order), it's not just apple. While pre-ordering is a lovely luxury that we have gotten used to, it is just that... a luxury. So other than my frustration with how long the shipping is taking, as i noted above, I truly am not disappointed in the process and I would definitely order from apple again in the future.

    It appears there is little rhyme or reason for when they'll actually ship it. I ordered from an ATT store and the guy told me my best bet for getting it soon would be to order the 32gb Gray. Which is what I wanted. So for me ATT worked great. Because of my plan, I had to go through ATT store. I got my phone in exactly one week from ordering it, so I guess I can't complain. It sounds like I lucked out hard.
