    I bought my 32GB Space Gray at about 3:30 AM and it's shipped already!

    The expected delivery date is the 30th but from my experience, they beat that date consistently. Can't wait!

    I ordered mine (silver 16gb expedited) around 4:20 am today, it just recently switched to "Shipped" and has a tracking number and everything, expected date of delivery is Monday the 23rd, so I'm definitely looking good for that!

    :)

    That's great!

    I meant to expedite my shipping as well but in my haste I completely overlooked the option. I tried to talk to customer service about it and they said there's nothing they could do.

    Oh well. I can wait.

    Sorry to hear you can't switch shipping speed. But, the bright side is you'll have your new phone relatively soon anyways. (And, like you said, normal shipping speed often pleasantly surprises you with early deliveries) :) Hope you love it!

    Ordered one 16 gig Space Gray and one 16 gig Goooooooold.

    Both have shipped and will be here on Monday. I never upgrade shipping because all my phones from TMO arrive the next day w/ UPS Ground. See, there are some benefits to living in middle America.

    On another note, did anyone notice that they showed up early on the website?

    Wow, T-Mobile is shipping already? Lucky! Us Verizon folks haven't heard anything but "processing" since last night.

    I noticed that, too. Honestly, I expected it to crash but I was really surprised how smooth it went. Kudos to T-Mobile.

    t-mobile adds insurance of 10$ per line for all financed iphones.

    t-mobile adds insurance of 10$ per line for all financed iphones.

    i was going to the store to pick up the tmo iphone, and because of that little surcharge decided against it. you can remove the insurance after 3 months, but that is an equivalent of overpaying 60$ for two phones. the store did not have the phone in stock anyway, so i will just wait for the phones to show-up in target and get it with 5% discount on the red card instead.

    No they don't. Your store just tried to scam you into adding insurance.

    Yes , I did. The shipping option show when you add everything done , choosen fastest one and cost me $24 more . They show UPS expedited nextday , it mean tomorrow ( Next day delivery inclued Saturday ) but estimated is Monday . Hope come soon

    If you buy in-store , they will add but they wont tell you , and you will know when ur bill coming . Thats my problem 2 months ago .

    Now , T Mobile had JUMP! Better than insurance :apple:

    I walked in to local t-mobile store. no line. lol they had 16g white/silver in stock. I opted for slate gray 64g model.

    Arrival ETA is Wed :)

    They gave me a 15% discount on monthly billing for having AAA too.

    I ordered my 32GB space gray 5S around 12:10 AM. The order status says shipped, but the tracking number doesn't seem to be in UPS' database yet. I find this strange since most people here who ordered after me, has already gotten confirmation of the delivery date. Mine still has the estimated delivery date of 9/30.


    Update: Now it's updated and says estimated delivery date 9/26. Oh well, I had hoped for delivery faster than that, as I ordered 12:05 AM.
