I'm so happy to end this waiting game but at the same time I'm sad for everyone that is still waiting! I ordered on on sept 25 an been waiting ever since for my black 16 for Verizon. Hell, I'm still technically waiting for it lol! I've been calling every store possible that I kno sells them in the southern Cali area for the last last two weeks every day! (Frys, Walmart, SAMs club, radio shack, apple store, Verizon store) and still had no luck, Until Today!!!!! I called a SAMs club during my daily check up and bam the rep said she just got them in!!! My heart sank lol! I'm happy to be a proud owner now of a beautiful black iPhone 5. I love it! But my point is that for those who ordered from apple.com, I feel for you because I've been waiting for a long time and going through apple.com was a serious waste of time! The stores are starting to catch up on stock while we all sit and wait, so be a little persistent and call all the local stores! P.s. my order on apple.com still says "Order processing!" Lol

Congrats! I canceled my pre-order with Apple today and snagged one up at a BB mobile in Oceanside.

I was just patient and eventually it arrived. Just hoping they soon sort out this Wi-Fi issue though.
