    Still waiting for my 64GB White, ordered on Oct 16th, still says "Processing".  As much as I'm sitting tight on this and being patient, it's frustrating to see everyone else's status change.

     

    But yeah, like hitman88 said, the wait is killing me!

    Hope your iPhones ship out soon. Unfortunately I'm sending mine back as there's a light leak just below the Sleep/Wake button. Called Apple this morning and they were really professional, even talked to the manager. A courier will be here to pick it up and I'll recieve a new one within 3-5 days. First iPhone experience didn't turn out as I'd hoped lol.

    iPhone 5 16GB Black

    Ordered on Oct 27

    Delivers   Nov 29 - Dec 5

     

    I tried the trick of getting online and placing the order after 10om for next day pickup, but I could never get through. Either that or the stores around me never get any stock. I called and asked a person at the store in Altamonte Mall about it and she was very 'short' with me, almost seemed to be irritated that I called, telling me they know the system works and I just need to keep trying. Tried for a week, then gave up.

     

    I already have two Lightning cables that I received, from the same order, that took only three days to get from China to me in Florida. Ordered a Trident Kraken case from Amazon. Unfortunately, it sits, empty, on my night stand. Wish I could get my phone.

    Congratulations to CourttDenise and Mr Silverblood! It will ship very soon .

     

    @Kashman69 yeah not long to wait. Although the rep already setup a new order, it's saying 4 weeks again for delivery estimate. I'm really hoping that it's the 3-5 days like she told me because I'm not going to wait another month. According to the rep the replacement will be a priority shipment... I'll just have to wait and see.

    Pretty much the same thing for me!

    "Preparing Shipment" at 3:30pm and "Shipped" at 11:30pm...

    I should receive it on the 15th, but hopefully it comes before

    My experience literally mirrors CourttDenise.

     

    1) Ordered on Oct 16th

    2) Preparing to Ship on Nov 9th (late afternoon)

    3) Shipped (with UPS Tracking emailed to me) on Nov 9th (at about 11:50pm)

     

    UPS says it's scheduled to arrive on Nov 15th.  We're on the last of the drivers route, so I'll be home to receive it (THANK GOD!).  I guess I wouldn't be so frustrated if the retail stores weren't recieving stock at the same time.  If they used those stocks to fill the online orders, the wait wouldn't bother me so much.


    BUT, it looks like from initial order to receiving it in hand, 1 month.

    And there are better things in this world to complain about, so we can consider this a 1st World Problem, and I'll just close my mouth now.  lol

     

     

    Cheers to everyone who gets theirs, it's an exceptional phone (my wife has one).

    I reread my previous post, and I wanted to clarify one of the last things I typed.  When I said that there are better things in this world to complain about, I only meant my own complaining, and no one else's.

     

    Didn't want anyone to think I was picking on them, because I really wasn't.

    Ok, glad I got that off my chest.   Carry on lads!
