    I ordered from AT&T because it stated 2-3 weeks, versus apple that was 3-4 weeks, neither said business days. 

     

    Here I am turning into week 3 and still no phone.

    you may want to recheck your receipt, I also ordered from AT&T and on my "Order Confirmation" I received in email says in the first line;

    "Thank you for your recent order. Your iPhone will ship in approximately 14-21 business days *. All orders are processed on a first come, first served basis."

     

    My question is, some of you are saying your order says "Backordered" mine says "processing" & "pending shippment", wondering if that makes any difference or if it all means the same?

    I pre-order on a AT&T store so I haven't sign the contract or anything until the iPhone arrives!!!

    I read on another forum that alot of 9/19 orders were being taken off backorder Wednesday and yesterday , of course I am speeking of 16g orders. Then I kept on reading on and one guy stated that he read only 9/18 -9/19 16g orders were being focused on as of wednesday. I'm still on backorder 1 , ordered 9/21 16g black. Hopefully the 20th orders will be shipping next week! Gives me hope , this BS is puro pedo already ! Also anyone know if they process on Saturday ? Or has anyone been taken off backorder on a sat? Thanks

    that seems very unusual, normaly you have to pay for it at the time of ordering and picking a plan or upgrading your current phone. you normally sign 2 times, first for the credit card purchase (unless of course you are paying cash or some other method) and the 2nd time for the phone purchase/agreements.

     

    Anyway, I saw this on the Apple web site today, so I am hopin it means more are in production, or at least when I got my 4S at its launch, this is the same thing that happend, and things started moving quicker.  You can now reserve a phone for next day pick up, this is how I got my 4S after cancelling my so called preorder with AT&T, that I thought meant I would get before other orders being fullfilled or even being shipped to stores, stupid me, what was I thinking!

     

    "For next day pick-up in an Apple Retail Store, buy an iPhone 5 online between 10 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. local time."

    You guys are killing me. Seriously depressing thread, as AT&T seem unable to tell me what is going on, so I started searching for answers...  I found all of you.  I ordered a 32G in black Oct 1 via Premier.  I guess I'm toast.  Not the best welcome from AT&T, as I'm switching from Verizon.

    The 10:00pm - 4:00am ordering for next day pick up has been around since a few days after launch. I ordered a 32gb black phone within a half-hour after per-orders began on the 14th on AT&T's website. When I didn't get my phone on the 21st I cancelled my pre-order two days later and used Apple's website to order at 10pm on the 25th and picked up my phone a couple of hours later. One advantage to living in NYC I suppose. I hope you all get your phones soon!

    I ordered 32GB black over the phone on 9/25.  My (pending shipment) status has not changed yet and when I call into AT&T, they say they have no other info.  When I call the automated line, it says the phone is backordered.  Did anyone else order the same phone as me after 9/25 and receive it already?

    Well I signed for the credit card that is true but for the contract nothing yet. By the way can't order from apple to get on a store due that in Puerto Rico we don't have apple retail stores selling iPhones :-(

    New here but been following the forum. I Need advice / input... I ordered on 9/21 (black 16gb) and want to cancel my order to place an online order at 10pm like others have done. I am porting my number from Sprint and attaching my phone to my parent's family plan account (they currently have your basic 550 minutes, no data, unlimited text). Unfortunately, on Apple's website as soon as I login to their AT&T account the next page it displays is "Select a Mobile Share Plan" and it doesn't even display any other plans such as our current family plan. I do not want to setup a mobile share plan since it's just my phone on the family plan using data! Does anyone know what to do here? Is this Apple / AT&T's way of saying pay up or get lost?
