I just ordered my Black and Slate 32GB iPhone 5 on VZW through the Apple Store last night and I am super excited!! My expected delivery date is Nov. 2 to Nov. 8 and I can't stand waiting that long so I have a question for you. Do you think that the Apple.com orders will be filled and shipped faster than the Verizon.com ones? I know VZW says it will ship by 10/26 but wouldn't priority come from Apple themselves instead of carriers?

if your on Verizon check around your local Radio Shack I walked right in one and picked it up the guy said they have been receiving plenty of Verizon iPhones. And to answer your question the ship date is usually a worst case scenario it will probably ship quicker than expected

I agree with ray that if you walk into a Radio Shack or even Sams Club you can more than likely find one and walk out with it. I know my local Sams Club has plenty of them even $3.00 less that the normal retail. Good luck and let us know when you get it.

I walked into a Radio Shack on the 26th & walked out with my VZW iPhone. I think they're the best chance of getting 1 soon.

My ship date was October 19th. It shipped today and should receive on Monday. They push those dates out so that they beat them and you love them for doing it.

Wish that were true in my case. Ordered from Apple Sept 16th (AT&T customer) and my status still says "processing items" with an expected delivery of Oct 10 - Oct 16.

I guess my order must be the worst case scenario! :mad:

I must have gotten lucky. I walked into the att store the day after the phone hit the store and 10 minutes later walked out with a new iPhone 5.

I read somewhere that if you go to an apple store at night, you can walk out with the iPhone 5. Of course, not when the iPhone first launched but starting this week or something. November is a long time to wait for this phone.

Yeah, just bring a pair of scissors and cut the cord on one of the displays

You can reserve online after 10PM for pick-up the next at your local store. Their is only limited stock for it and the reservation only lasts for 24 hours.
