    Hello all,

    My wife wants a Gold 64GB iPhone. Currently, the online store shows the shipping time of 2-3 weeks. Has anyone ordered recently, and has it truly taken 2-3 weeks? Or it's only an estimate and there is a chance it could ship sooner? Just wanted to know the experience of the forum. Thanks.

    The AT&T Store shows the shipping time for Gold phones at 7-14 days now

    I did and it arrived within 10 days, not 2 to 3 weeks. This may vary, but that is my experience. I to opted for the Gold iPhone

    I got mine in store (Apple) and didn't wait for it. I just went and they had it in stock. So it was less than 24Hrs.

    If you do have an Apple Store nearby, do keep an eye out for stock. You'd be surprised.

    This morning I was shocked to see a gold 64GB T-Mobile iPhone available at my local store. However, by the time I pressed the Order button, it said it wasn't available anymore. :(

    So, I'm going to try again tomorrow morning. However, if I can't get it soon, I might as well order online. So I wanted to know if it's really 2-3 weeks.

    All the Apple stores around my area have plenty of stock of all the phones. I heard that Apple will now have a huge inventory at Apple stores in California according to the Apple Rep at the store.

    You can order from the local inventory online?

    Hardly 2-3 weeks. Like I said, once I decided to buy the 5S, it took me 24Hrs of checking to actually get one.

    Yep! http://www.apple.com/retail/personal-pickup/

    The "2-3 weeks" is for shipping to your house from Apple. For in-store pickup sometimes the model you want is available immediately (of course they don't ship from local store inventory, if that's what you were referring to).

    From whom did you order it from ?

    Mine was from Apple. Did you order it from a Carrier ? Which might be the reason

    Try using the Apple Store App and see if that works. Let me know.

    Are Apple stores allowing folks to buy phones outright?
