ok. I hope your calculations are right.
Has anyone had a gold iPhone 5s actually ship yet? - Page 5
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. :)

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...'.
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.

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.
I spoke to AT&T customer service today. These are their current estimates for gold iPhone 5S orders:
Gold 5s iPhone and it's now showing at
14-21 business days for the 16GB
21-35 business days for 32GB
28-35 business for 64GB
