Is it normal to not know when it will be shipped or arrive? My friend who ordered one, his email said "will arrive on 9/21) whereas mine just gives a generic "f you ordered an iPhone 5, your device will ship in approximately 14 - 21 business days. All other devices will be shipped in 2-3 business days."
How come he gets an exact date and mine is a ballpark one?

Apple sold out their 9/21 delivery phones in less than 1 hour from the time pre-orders started, according to reports.

From AT&T Chat:
AT&T: As of right now, our most up to date information for the shipping dates for the iPhone is as followed. Any orders made and processed before 9 AM on 9/14/12 CT will be shipped on the 21st. Any orders placed and processed after 9 AM on 9/14/12 CT will be shipped in 14 to 21 business days.
ME: ok - I guess I'm with the first batch. I thought 21st was the first delivery date, not first shipment date.
AT&T: Apple has stated that a few customers who ordered before 9 AM CT on 9/14/12 may receive their devices on the 21st as well. So it is a possibility.
