Interesting. i'm not really near an Apple store right now but will be in a week...probably right when mine changes so I can't cancel anymoreIt almost sucks in this case to have pre-ordered as the Apple Store's have had plenty in stock and people have just walked up, waited maybe an hour in line, and gone about their business with their new iPhone 5's. The employees at the Apple Store in Lenox said they had the whole line completed by 11 AM EDT on launch day and then people just came in got phones right away with no wait the rest of the day. And they still had a lot of stock left over when I went to the store on the 22nd to swap mine out.
I ordered through AppleWeird that there are these different groups of dates...9-15, 10-16, 11-17. It seems that at the point we ordered they will start shipping these out on a daily bases but it's a few weeks after the in-store rush has died down. So maybe these dates are pretty accurate. Did you all order from apple?
If we want to be more specific I was:
9/15 - 5:00pm - 64gb AT&T -> 10-16 delivery
I pre ordered on Sept 14th, Apple.com at ~820p ET for a White 16gb AT&T iPhone 5. I still show processing items with delivery Oct 9-15th.Ordered on Sept 17th, still processing available in 2-3 weeks
estimate shipping october 11th to 17th, any one know if it might be moved up?
Well, I'm from the UK and I pre-ordered the iPhone 5 on the 15th. It's still initially saying the same thing till now from when I ordered processing - Oct 9-15. Needless to say, I'm sick and frustrated that I haven't got my device yet. Also the thought of getting a defected iPhone 5, and having to waiting to get a replacement - I so hope this doesn't happen.Apple's pre-order system is taking the piss. I ordered 45mins after the pre-orders went live on the 14th, and I have a delivery date of Oct 3-9, and it's still processing items. I know for certain people received their orders who pre-ordered way later than this. Anyone else with a similar situation?
