Has anyone had a gold iPhone 5s actually ship yet? - Page 3

post #81 of 210
I got majorly screwed. I ordered my phone, AT&T 64gig gold, at about 5:30 am mountain time on the day of release. I was given the "ships in October" notice. 10 days goes by on 9/30 and I find the availability for a location near me, but the only way to get it is to cancel my 9/20 order and place the new order from the store, which I do, but I didn't know it took a while for my cancelation to take effect so by the time I was cleared for the discounted price, it was gone.

I'm extremely frustrated. So I had to reorder from apple.com, which meant I got pushed back in the queue.

I'm still seeing Processing available in October. Ughhh

Ordered my gold iphone 5s16g  thru the Apple online store Sept. 27, 2013. As of 6:30am (cst)10/11/2013 I just got this latest update on the processing status:

Processing Items Available to ship: October 24-28

Delivers: Nov 4 by Standard Shipping

Didn't have that message yesterday.

I ordered a gold iPhone 5s, 32gb unlocked on September 20th around noon online from Apple. My order state just updated to the same as someone a few posts above  who ordered one week after me (9/27). A tad bit frustrating - I thought it was being shipped "in order", at least somewhat..

 

Processing Items Available to ship: October 24-28

16gb Gold, AT&T (GSM)

 Got an update...

Available to ship: October 24-28

Delivers: Nov 1 (I choose the speed delivery 2-3 Business days)

 

I've heard initially the dates are far out, but sometimes they will change out of no where and arrive earlier than expected. Anybody experience this yet?

post #88 of 210

Ok...now new status!!! Still says "Processing Order" but the "Available to Ship: October" has changed to Available to Ship: October 24-28, Delivers Nov 4 by Standard Shipping"

 

I thought that when the status changed to "Preparing For Shipment" for that short period of time it would be shipping sooner. I was elated. Then it changed back to "Processing Order". :(

 

Well at least now I am not completely in the dark.

post #89 of 210
This morning I noticed my order status changed to ships Oct 24 - 28, with a Nov 4 delivery date. I ordered a gold 64 GB AT&T phone via Apple website at 6:30pm EST. I'm hoping I get my phone before then, because waiting 45 days for a phone would be insane. 1oyvey.gif

Has anyone ordered gold 16 5s from Att store? Like I posted befor I ordered from Att on 9/28 and my order says preparing to ship and has been that way. And it gives me a range of 11/6 to 11/26 to ship. Does anyone else have this wide range from 11/6 to 11/26? Or does anyone think it's crazy that it will take 2 months to get a phone? Wish I would get an update or more info.

Hey I ordered mine from Apple for ATT September 29th, so I am not too sure, but my estimate is Nov 1st.

 

I believe they might just give you a wide range just incase the phone doesn't arrive when expected. (but I can be false). it might just be a way for them to cover their butts you know? If I were you I would go ahead and order from apple and see if it gives you the delivery date right away now that they are updating every body. They aren't going to charge your card right away. I ordered mine sept 29th and they still haven't charged me. You can probably see if apple will deliver it sooner and cancel the order from att. Your choice :)  but I have seen delivery dates expected to be that far along in recent research. Very ridiculous!

Actually I wouldn't cancel I just realized if you order from Apple today it will be a much longer wait. Stay with ATT! oops lol good luck!

post #94 of 210
Thanx rebeckzz. It's just I see apple updates everyone but Att don't seem to update anything. And there don't seem to be a way to contact anyone to see what the deal is. I'm very frustrated I'm sure I'm not the only one.

My order also changed to: Available to ship: October 24-28 Delivers: Nov 4 by Standard Shipping. But Apple has been processing the funds from my bank account since yesterday. Has anyone else experienced this?

I ordered iphone 5s GOLD 16G in at & t store on September 20th around 10am. Now I'm holding it in my hands. Exactly 3 weeks of waiting...I love it so much. I purchased new case designed for iphone 5s and new sceen protector, everything costs me $290 1biggrin.gif at & t did 2 days shipping for me. When my status was "preparing to ship," they said October 21st to October 28th for delivery range. They shipped it much sooner. When they really ship your phone out, they will email you with tracking #.

@ lilmindy234 thank u for the info. How long did your order say preparing to ship? And my friend had ordered it on 9/20 and he got it this week also. It's just weird when I go onto my Att account it says preparing to ship but when I call the number it says still processing. Idk lol

My order was in status "preparing to ship" from September 20th to October 8th. At 1am on October 9th, it became "shipped" with tracking # 1biggrin.gif I hope you will receive it soon, be patient. At & t shipped faster than verizon, I think.

Hey guys,

I actually ended up canceling my order and re ordered one for onshore pick up. I will be picking it up at the apple store tomorrow! So now instead of waiting a almost a month I have it tomorrow! It was available for pick up right away too! Check your local apple stores on apple website! Keep in mind you have to cancel your current order and it takes about 4 - 5 mins to actually cancel completely so if you see available for in store pick up do it quick !

Good luck!

Sorry about the battery scare, battery life  was dropping like crazy even though I had it plugged in.  After hours of

playing with it and charging I then realized I didnt have the plug in tight enough so it wasnt charging.

Just so excited to have it I wasn't paying attention.  

 

Today I brought it to work, no heavy calling or emails but glad to say I still have 59% battery.  Again, sorry for the scare.

Its worth the wait everyone!

I ordered a gold 32gb on 20th September at a T-Mobile store - I was the first customer in line at 8 am. Today I got a shipped email, arriving on the 14th Oct. I'm very happy. Still, it took 21 days from purchase to shipping. I'm moving from Verizon to T-Mobile.

My husband ordered a T-Mobile slate grey 32gb on the 27th September from the Apple store and his arrived yesterday. He is already a T-Mobile customer.
