    Really wish Apple was clear on this. Everything I'm reading is saying they are SHIPPING the 19th

    AFAIK: If you preorder tonight, it should be at your door on the 19th. That's the way it's been in the past

    They are both shipping and arriving on that date.

    What Apple does is send the devices to shipping hubs all around the world and then on launch date sends the phones from those hubs to your doorstep. Hence why they have the week Inbetween

    Or hopefully a day or two earlier like some lucky people in the past.

    They ship to your local Fedex/UPS facility early and are usually put into a hold until the 19th for delivery.

    Don't worry. It should be delivered on time.

    Was watching the iPhone 5 event and Phil kind of said the same thing, he said: 'You can preorder the iPhone on the 14 and WE'LL SHIP A WEEK LATER on the 21st"

    And people said that they received their phones the day it came out

    check it out for urself (37:40)

    I was talking to a rep today and he said I'd get the pre order on the 17th actually. Not sure if he was mistaken but I asked him are you sure and he said yes.

    I've ordered the last 3 model iPhones and all were delivered on launch day.

    Does anyone know whether Verizon ships or arrives on the 19th? I just spoke to a representative who says it won't ship until the 19th. I'll be out of town at the time and am trying to figure out which address to send it to if I'm lucky enough to get it on the preorder.
