Official Iphone 5s order status thread

Ordered mine around 7 am this morn, I hadnt even a clue I was eligible for an upgrade until I went in to pay my bill this morning.  Decided it was time to graduate to a 32gb over my 16gb.  I am always running out of space so it made the most sense.  I believe I cna sell my 5 for 250-300$ so its a wash regardless.  Early email said 7-14 days but its not confirmed yet and Ive read alot of folks saying they got an email saying it could be a month.  We will see I guess, no hurry here!

Ordered from Apple tuesday morning 10/29/2013 silver 32gb and gold 32gb 5S, paid extra $10 dollars for 2-3 day shipping, being delivered friday 11/1/2013. Not saying anything bad about at&t but i have read most of this thread and cant figure out why they take so long to ship. And its being shipped from china,via the tracking info from UPS. when i first placed the order it did say expected delivery 11/20-26/2013 i have no idea why it shipped so fast. but i wont be able to use it till the 26th anyway as im out of town at work.

Ordered a Gold 5S 32 gig on 9/25/13

Has officially been 5 weeks since I placed my order, estimated shipping date of 11/04/2013 - 11/22/2013.

still on "preparing to ship" no progress at all. 

I even went to the AT&T store to try to get an update and they were only able to tell me of that it will come inbetween the shipping dates listen

My shipping window opens today 10/31-11/20. It's been 38 days. I'm disappointed the 64gb gold are taking so long. Ordered on 9/23 from AT&T.

@Shwna17 I'm in the exact same boat as you; my shipping window opens today, as well (10/31-11/20) and I also ordered a 64gb gold on 9/23 from AT&T. Pretty ridiculous.

Lesson learned. Never order throught ATT. But the thing is that i have to stick for 2 years if i order through apple Because im using ATT NEXT program and with that i can upgrade annually.. Apple doesnt have that.

@Blazespple Congrats so happy for you. So was it worth the wait to get it in Gold? I'm thinking of canceling and picking up the Silver/White at my local AT&T since they have lots of stock. I'm just not sure, since I have cases on my phones at all times, do I really need it in Gold? I dunno

I really like the gold, but if you always have your phone in a non see through case it's not worth the wait. All you would have is the little gold touch id ring. If you ordered a 16 gb I'd say just wait and that it shouldn't take too long. But apparently the 32-64 gigs are taking what seems like years... If that's the case just go pick up your silver and a nice case. Gold isn't worth waiting over a month for I can tell you that. As long as it's at least a white version it will look great with iOS 7

@Shwna17 I think we might be the only ones give or take who ordered 64gb in gold that follow this thread; I could be wrong, though. As far as I remember, 16's were shipping way fast, 32's have been picking up speed in the past week or two and us 64's are stuck in limbo nearing 40 days for the both of us. I'll post updates if I get any...

I went to my local AT&T today during lunch, they have the Silver/White in stock in both 16gb and 32gb configurations.  I was hoping to see the Gold and Silver side by side in person to make a more informed decision on my preference.  However, they didn't have the gold as a display or in stock (of course).  I'm seriously conflicted LOL  Today is day 23...  Thinking I will cancel and buy the Silver.. Thinking... Thinking... Thinking... it's jsut a phone why is this so difficult.

@Monica0301 Wait for the Gold. You have waited this long just hang in there. There is light at the end of the tunnel. All three models are beautiful but its the first non white/black iphone model. I ordered 32gb Gold on 10/9. Still waiting and will wait. Something about that gold ring on the home button that keeps me going haha

@Ceelo07 You are right, I will wait and try to stop whining :smileyhappy:. I saw the
Silver/White and I wasn't really compelled to buy it. Patience is a virtue.

If any of y'all get tired of waiting for Gold, Spigen.com has several really nice champagne gold cases that look just like the iPhone.  It's an alternative or I guess a compromise if you can't wait.

 

Still waiting.  Oct 3rd order....still no word from AT&T

@wang_dynasty I called AT&T this morning and was told my phone has shipped. It's in Arizona right now and should be delivered by the end of next week. My order status hasn't changed, though. It still say preparing to ship/processing. I hope this means you'll receive your phone soon too.

Ordered: 9/23, 64gb gold, AT&T CA

I orginally ordered(through AT&T) my64 Gb Gold on sept. 25 but had to cancel the order due to complications and order it again (currently losing my mind). I ordered it again on Oct. 21 and have an expectant shipping date of 11/28/13 - 12/18/13*. 25 days and counting till my shipping process may actually start. Did anyone else order a 64 Gb Gold through AT&T around Oct. 21?

Everyone whose counting their waiting days, rememeber to only count BUSINESS days! so Ive waited Officially 37 days since I placed my order but then my shipping window opens in such a long time since my order date ( 11/4 ) because that would be officially 28 business days since my order date. I thought it would've been here by now since our order confirmation emails said it would take 4-6 weeks for it to ship but I dont think most of us counted business days.
