Is this normal, or is it that we are probably the unlucky souls facing problem which we arent aware of? when i purchased the iphone 4, i went through a lot of trouble in the order. after 2 weeks of saying processing it suddenly showed a red exclamation mark on the order and said please contact apple to continue with ur order. and it turned out the bank declined the payment. I m guessing its mainly cause they didnt see any activity going on with the amount previously blocked by apple ( thats how apple's payment system works, they just get a pre-authentication from the bank n freeze the require funds from ur account and charge u once the product ships out ). I have this bad feeling that its gonna happen all over again for the 5! :(

As posted in the Shipped thread, I ordered on Monday October 8 Australian Time, delivery Window is Nov 2-8, White 64GB. It changed to "Preparing for Shipment" today, so hoping it ships in the next 24 hours! From what I can see that's almost a record, so maybe things are improving, though delivery times are still 3-4 weeks on the Apple Online store.

Order a 16gb black from AT&T on the phone Oct.15 shipping date estimate 14-21 days. Nov 2-13 is when I should have my phone but something tells me it will be longer after seeing all the people on here with extremely long wait times.
