    I originally ordered from AT&T at 3:10 am EDT on the 20th (delay was due to several attempts to order first through Apple, each of which failed when they couldn't verify upgrade eligibility with AT&T), and when there was still no movement from them 3 days later and the in-store pickup option became available from Apple, I canceled the AT&T order. Then, of course, the in-store pickup option went away, so I placed an online order with Apple on the 24th. Argh. Still sitting in "processing," delivery "estimation" (or lack thereof) October.

    The irony is that I don't even WANT gold anymore after seeing it in person. I want silver. But changing the order would shuffle me even further down in the queue and I'd be lucky to get it by summer ;), so I wait.

    I was late to the party and didn't order my AT&T 64GB Gold until 9/27. I'm in the "October" shipping group. Don't expect it anytime soon, but that's ok.

    32GB gold for TMobile ordered at 12:06AM on the Apple store on 9/20.
    "Preparing for Shipment" for nearly 30 hours now.
    I'm getting really antsy with the lack of movement, especially with the Chinese holiday coming up.

    Good thread for us 64gb golders..

    I ordered mine on the 25th after a nightmare time on launch day in line, was able to get a couple 32gb blacks tickets but didn't want them so i wasted about 3hrs standing in line...

    Ordered through AT&T around 9:30am and they duplicated my order 3 times somehow and it created a complete mess over the next 5 days. I ended up canceling and then ordering on the 25th with apple for a gold 64gb AT&T.

    Update this thread when yours ship!

    At least we will have an idea then once we see the 20th, 21st, 22nd..ect start shipping

    My 64GB Gold has already shipped and is waiting for UPS to pick it up in China. It is shipping to the US though, not the UK. It was shipped on Friday and is still in China btw.

    unless you expecting it earlier I would not stress.

    Apple is still claiming delivery 7-10 oct, so that has not changed. If your status does not change by the end of this week, then expect it to be delivered late.
