Did anyone that already got a shipping confirmation have a personalized mini?

I ordered minutes after the presale, but mine is still "preparing for shipping"

Maybe because it will be engraved?!?

Yep, I ordered within a few hours and mine is personalized too. Still preparing for shipment. I'm assuming that's the hold up.
Wonder if anyone who has a personalized one got their shipment moved up to next day?

Is your's an AT&T model? On another thread, I'm reading that the people who are getting shipped notices have purchased the Verizon model (so far). Mine is AT&T, and it still is in Preparing for Shipment with a delivery date of 11/21.

Mine is AT&T. Even the non-personalized AT&T are still preparing? That stinks for us but glad it seems "normal." Can't wait!

I ordered the personalized Verizon 32 model, and it is still preparing for shipping.

My delivery date has bounced around. I ordered a couple of minutes into the pre-sale, a white 16 on Verizon. The website has told me to expect delivery on Nov 23, mid-November, and now November 16.

My tracking number from FedEx says it will actually deliver on 11/15. "Mid-November" indeed.

Edit to add: Now FedEx tracking site reports delivery on 11/16. Seems like a lot of people are seeing the same change.
Same thing happened to me. When I got it this morning I thought "Wow, nice, a day earlier than I could have expected!"

Then it changed. Oh, well, still better than the 21st, so no complaints here.

Mine now has three entries:
Shipping information sent to FedEx
Picked Up
Left origination facility

Mine is in transit from china. FedEx still keeps a delivery date of 11/19. I'm on the east coast.


Is this the same for anyone else on the east coast? I ordered soon as well on the pre-order, iPad 4 with verizon LTE, 32 gb white.

Tethering is a hassle, at least compared to the alternative of just having your data plan available on all your devices. For the reasons I've already stated, in my judgement it is worth $10 per device to not have to do it.

Of course, opinions are just like cornholes. Everybody has one and they usually stink.

Same here.

It's not unusual for FedEx to beat the delivery date on the tracking page (for Apple stuff) where I live, so I'm curious to see if it shows up on Thursday.

I didn't bug Apple to move my shipping date up, so I was expecting delivery next Wednesday. This Friday is an awesome surprise!

My situation's a bit different - my iPhone's on a pay-as-you-go plan. When I was with AT&T prepaid, using multiple devices wasn't even an option. With T-Mobile, I can add tethering if I want to pay extra; but I still can't share the plan.

On the plus side... I'm only paying $30/month for unlimited text and data + 100 minutes talk. You're probably paying slightly more than that.

Who's your carrier? $30/month for unlimited text and data + 100 minutes talk is not a bad deal.

T-Mobile. It's a deal only available from their website.

A big downside right now is - while they are currently reallocating network spectrum to better support the iPhone, until that's done you only get EDGE speeds a lot of places. I'm in western Washington state, and they're progressing pretty well here; but at the moment I'm still only getting EDGE connections in probably 50% of locations.

Once the reallocation is done, though, even the LTE iPhone 5 will be supported.

Oh, and obviously 100 minutes a month isn't a lot. For some people that's only enough for maybe a day or two. For me, though, it's about 3x what I need in a month... I hardly ever make voice calls anymore.

You don't need minutes anyways. Since you have unlimited data, you can just use VoIP.

In this case, "unlimited" is up to 5 gigs/month at high speed (4G if your phone can handle it and is compatible with the network), then they drop you to EDGE speeds.

I wonder when t-mobile will get the iPhone 5? I am sure it will happen at some point.

Just changed to Preparing for shipment. No charge to CC yet. The date is still "by November 21" (ordered at 1203 am PDT 10/26/12) ... Which is ok ... Because I will still be in the area to drop by and pick up at work...and set it up on the way to mom and dad's ( not driving, btw).

I just found out that you can buy an GSM unlocked iPhone 5 from Verizon and pop in a t-mobile nano sim card.

Now I can get an iPhone 5 from Verizon and a t-mobile nano sim card. Then I can just VoIP via wifi instead of my 100 mins. I am super temped to do this.

I got a shipping confirmation email tonight. My personalized Verizon 32 black/slate ipad mini will arrive on Friday before 10:30. Woo hooo! FedEx says it is still in China, but is scheduled to arrive (I'm on the East Coast) by Friday.

Yay!!

One thing to note, though - with the Verizon model you can't use data and voice at the same time.
