    Order is for 7-10 business days, but delivery is on 17 to 23 October. How is that possible?? Can we request for the 7-10 business days delivery?

    It's "dispatched" in 7-10 business days. It then takes a few more days to get from China.

    Currently 3/10. + 10 working days = 17/10. +3/4 business days from China = 22-23/10.

    China is on holidays from Oct 1 - Oct 7 so that skews the numbers

    Ships in under 24 hours

    Hmm. I ordered October 1 and my (64GB Space Grey T-Mobile) iPhone 6 was shipped October 2. (And given the large difference in local times, it was really same day shipping)

    So much for 7-10 business days and for a holiday in China stopping things.

    Current predicted delivery date is two whole weeks sooner than the prediction when I ordered it two days ago.

    I can confirm this. I ordered a 6 64gb Grey on the 1st and the same day it showed preparing to ship. I got tracking last night and should have it the middle of next week.

    I hope you get yours quick. After mine shipped it sat in China for 4 days. Missed 2 flights and a weather delay. Your delivery date Is sure to change.
    If yours is anything like mine you won't see if for 7 days.

    Indeed, it is still in China. But they had allowed 7 days for shipping, which is actually more like 8 after taking into account crossing the date line. I'm also hoping it stays on the west coast after entering the USA via Alaska. Weather predictions are great this coming week.

    In any case I'm sure to be ahead by the "7-10 business days" wait that wasn't there.

    Delivery date did not change and while China was certainly slow it didn't close down and delivery met the 5 day window for the UPS service. It's on the truck for delivery today, ordered October 1! See attachments for evidence. The "7 to 10 day" ended up being a day and the arrival was a whole 11-14 days early!

    Sometimes the dates do not match. I found that tracking info may not be too accurate while in China. After is gets stateside and through import customs, times and data will be very accurate.
