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!

This has been exactly the same since Tuesday morning.  Nothing yet.  Ordered at around 11AM EST on 9/20, SIM changed to "processing" Tuesday AM but apparently that doesn't mean much, if anything...They even moved the ship date back from my original order!  Guess us who ordered the 16-Gold may be out of luck for now....

16 gb's seemed to have started shipping mid day on 9/28. I wouldn't be surprised if they shipped more monday and possibly even tuesday.

Hey guys, since I lurked while waiting I figured I'd share my results:

 

Signed up for an upgrade and a new 5S on Wednesday (09/25).  32GB, space gray.  I was told over the phone it'd be "7 to 14 days, but you'll probably get it sooner".  Then the order status showed 10/24 to 11/04, and I was pretty upset.

 

Then on Friday (09/27) it suddenly showed a FedEx tracking number and said the ship date was 09/27.  It still said "In progress", but the FedEx tracker page showed they had already picked up the package.  I finally got an E-mail from AT&T saying my phone had shipped at the end of the day.

 

Seems like the space gray ones might be shipping pretty quickly despite the warnings.

So i just finished talking to an AT&T Rep and she told me that all shipping dates are an exageration. She then told me that if any part of your order is processing then the wait will most likely be 14 days and then it should ship to you. So I should be getting my iPhone around Oct. 7th since i placed my order on Sept. 25th, if everything goes smoothly. I pray it does lol

It sounded like there were shortages on all colors/models, and I was given a late October/early November shipping date, like some other posters.  I know gold has longer delays, but I don't see the problem with reassuring people the space gray ones are still shipping quickly despite the late shipping estimates.

Supply was short for all except the 5C's, the gold phone just happened to be the most popular and sold out the quickest, was mentioned the online order supply sold out in 4 hours and when retail opened, it sold out in a few hours also. Saw video of a store in London on BBC where people where walking out with 4 of them, turned around and starting askng for offers to sell for prices of 1500 - 2000.

For those of you whose phone has yet to ship, Apple has re-enabled their 'check availabilty' for in-store pick up button for the 5S as of 3 am EST 9/30. Links are below to both Apple and AT&T. I've had a few friends get lucky already and bought their phones online and just went to the store to pick it up via reservation, just need your zip code to search.

 

http://store.apple.com/us/buy-iphone/iphone5s - For Apple just click the check availability button under the bright green continue button on the right.

 

http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/devices/apple/iphone/5s-16gb-gold.html - For AT&T just click check in-store availability right below the add to cart button on the left.
