post #161 of 210

ok. I hope your calculations are right.

They are more "common sense" than "scientific" but there definitly "wise of the masses" :)

Shipped!! Finally!! iPhone 5s gold 32GB ordered 9/20 at about 10am from Verizon.
post #164 of 210

i still see verzion is doing just the 9/20 orders nothing past that. I wonder how many orders are ahead of mine (my order date 9/27).

That's great news, I was around 1 pm EST from Verizon with a 32 GB Gold, so hopefully seeing a status change within the next 24 hours or so

Just to let you know- I probably ordered online around the same time that you did and had the NOV 4 delivery time by standard shipping.  I called Apple 1800 my Apple and told them that I wanted to upgrade to expedited shipping (10 dollars) - and they changed it for free since I had been waiting for so long to receive my device.  Call them and your receive date will change to NOV 1.   :)

Ordered my wife's  at&t 16g gold iPhone thru Apple's website on 9/20 at 11:45 am.  Finally got a status change from "processing" to "preparing to ship" on 10/21.  Today my status changed to "shipped", est arrival 10/28.  I guess patience is the keyword.

Ordered 2 space gray and 1 16gb gold on Sep 29th. Shipped today. It was supposed to be shipped last Sunday but for some reason it didn't. Could be because I switched from AT&T to Verizon. It is expected to arrive Wed, 30th. 

 

post #181 of 210
Shipping date of Oct 24 - 28. Order on 9/20 @ 11:00 am EST. No updates yet.....has anyone who has same shipping dates received or been updated on shipping? 1hmm.gif
post #182 of 210

I ordered an AT&T 32gb gold 5s on 10/14 via Apple website. It changed from processing to preparing for shipment in the afternoon on 10/26 and it shipped early morning 10/28. It's supposed to be delivered by the end of the day 11/1.

I am in the same boat...Ordered Gold 5s on 9/20 at 12:30 noon EST and have the same message. No shipping date yet. Now the day is almost over so they missed their deadline of shipping Oct 28. Tired of waiting! What gives?

Yes...FINALLY SAYS SHIPPED...hopefully it won't revert back to 'Processing...' like it did once before it said 'Processing...'.

post #187 of 210
Yes, same here..will be watching my tracking number..lol. Enjoy!
post #188 of 210

I ordered my 5S on October 2, it has been showing preparing for shipment Oct 24 to 28 for over a week, deliver by Nov 4.

 

This morning it changed to deliver by Nov 12 totally missing the ship date.

 

I received an email apologizing for the delay telling me I could cancel the order if I wished to do so.

I ordered my AT&T iphone 5S Gold on 9/24. It's has been "preparing to ship" since 9/24 with the same estimate in shipping time. I did this via AT&T not apple.

The estimated ship date has been Nov 1st - 21. So much for apple's impressive supply chain.

Looks like my order is finally on its way and on schedule for Mon Nov 4th Delivery as promised. The novelty has worn off having ordered the phone over a month ago on 9/20/13. But I suppose the excitement will return when I get to unbox the sucker!

post #193 of 210

What I have noticed in difference in experiences:

 

Upgrading via AT&T - Estimate ship date Nov 1st-21st. Gold iPhone 5S ordered on 9/24

 

New customer via T-mobile - Ordered Oct 27th, has shipped already and will be here on Nov 1st. Gold iPhone 5S 16 GB. 

 

Looks like if you're a new customer you're going to get higher precedence than upgrade customers. This is not evidence but my current experience. I wonder if newer customers overall (people who switch) are getting their phones significantly sooner than upgrade ones.

Thanks for not being helpful and judging posts versus sharing your experience. This thread has people sharing their stories to see if long delays are comparable between ordering methods. Please add to the conversation, not judge it. 

 

As for the people who are contributing to this thread, my recent experience shows that you will receive a gold phone much faster if you are a new customer. If you're on the fence about switching carriers (especially to t-mobile for their new international plans), now may be the time if you want your phone before Christmas.
