    I am from Portugal and I wanted to order a white iPhone 5 from the Apple.pt website and wanted to know something.

    Has the problems with the iPhones damaged out of the box over?

    Anyone that has ordered an iPhone from their website had any problems with the phone being delivered and/or damaged during transit?

    Thank you for any info in advance.

    Just want to be sure there is no problem ordering from my country store.

    I don't know about the Portuguese website, but they all ship from China anyway, my white model arrived flawlessly late last month. Ordered from the Swedish online store.

    The delivery is always on time and secure. If you want to be 100% sure it wont be damaged from the box you should wait a month. Most the time they are flawless though.

    No. It is 100% secured. You can order it from your country.

    I ordered mine yesterday, over a month since the release so I might get a good one, no problem. Are you people satisfied with your iPhone 5? :)

    How long did it take since you made the order online until they warned you it had been processed and shipped?

    And how long did it take until it got to your house?

    I ordered on the 28th of September and it shipped on the 23rd of October. I believe I got it on the 25th of October.

    You should have received an estimate from Apple, usually they are correct
