    Ordered on the 14th, Forgot to accept the Terms and Conditions until the 19th which changed my order date ot the 19th.

     

    Today finally I get a change on the status page going from "processing" to  "in progress" Today I am seeing a BOAT load of FedEx and UPS trucks driving around my neighborhood! I will bet my bottom dollar that these trucks are mostly all delivering iPhone5's since there must have been a surge. Not being dramatic I literally saw 2 FedEx trucks speeding down my block right behind on another... Unless they were racing :/

    I am on the same boat, I am barely making it as my expected delivery date is 10-10-12 and I will be leaving to the other side of the country 10-11-12. Hopefully both of our packages come earlier than expected! Keep me updated.

    So, received mine today... 32GB Black...  I ordered through AT&T Premier Online on 9/19 late night and shipped yesterday night (FEDEX Next Day).

     

    They posted an original delivery range of 2-3 weeks.  They sent it exactly on week # 2.

    My order process has (so far), been surprisingly 'decent.'

     

    My tracking # now reads:

     

     

    Monday, 10/08/2012, By End of Day
    DFW Airport, TX, United States, Thursday, 10/04/2012

     

    Once again, I ordered over the phone w/ ATT on 9/25, status changed to 'pending shipment' 10/3, morning of 10/4 I get a tracking number, and by the above copy/pasted status, apparently it's already at DFW, with a scheduled delivery by this Monday?? Seems fair to me. Guess I'm part of the lucky batch of shipments, who knows how it really works... none of the stories people are posting make much sense, it all sounds unpredictable.

     

    It's shipping to Fresno, CA btw., and the ATT rep I ordered w/ said how to expect 21-28 days BEFORE shipment.

     

    If this goes according to schedule and I receive by next Monday, that'll be approx. 13 days. I'm not complaining if that happens.

     

    Overall, I'm pretty convinced that for the future, ordering OVER THE PHONE w/ your actual service provider rep (an actual human) will do wonders in speeding this process.

     

    Hopefully, Apple will finally have it together by then, and this won't happen, but after all these iPhone launches, they only seem to get worse (or demand just keeps rising, which seems to be the case also).... just boggles my mind they still don't have this down yet though, overall.

     

    Tim Cook was supposed to be a logistical and inventory genius back in the day, not sure what happened.

     

    Bottom line, I will most likely always order from a human employee from now on, just to make sure things actually happen. After witnessing and reading a lot of these debacles, it seems ordering online w/ no human interaction, is still not "100%"

     

    When ordering w/ my rep, I asked literally 3 - 4 times to explain to me the details and logistics of my order, making sure I didn't miss anything; you can't do that with a computer.

    Has anyone else gotten this message under the tracking number? I have also been checking the site that gives you the backorder number but it is still at 1, anyone had any luck with this? I ordered a blk 16 iphone on the 19th.

    Exact same message here. I ordered blk 16gb on the 21st and I was curious so I spoke with at&t representative over the online chat and he/she told me that it means they are waiting/confirming the new batch of iphones that came in for shipment scheduled for 10.11~10.22 shipment. The rep also told me that I may see a change in status in around 48hrs. Hope this helps.
