    ... and pick up 4-5 iPhone 5S's for T-Mobile? Will this be possible by mid-October? Mall of America Apple Store is the one we enjoy the most (there are a few employees that have been working there since we can remember that are a pleasure to work with).

    Family is upgrading. :)

    If history is any guide, I'd guess mid-November, as well. However, because the AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile versions all support the same LTE and GSM bands, if you are just looking for an unlocked iPhone, you can get lucky now. Just get whatever phone is available device-only from the Apple Store.

    You just buy the AT&T one... it works on T-Mobile. I did just that this past Saturday. I just walked in and bought one at the apple store in emeryville.

    I think you will be fine in a few weeks time, your only concern will be availability of the colours you want. If someone in your family wants gold, you may have to wait a bit longer. Here in the uk, I can get my hands on a 5s relatively easily, just not the gold one

    I agree that it will be around November. Most retailers are also saying that's how long it will be before they have plentiful stock.
