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!

I've been reading everyones replies and updates on the order status and shipping dates along with tracking numbers and even a few that received the gold 5s already and it's a little bit uplifting. I ordered my 32gb gold 5s around 4 pm on the 21st. I've yet to receive a tracking number. My est date.is the 21st to the 30th of October. I've noticed a few people post that they've recieved tracking numbers for their gold 5s and the order date was the same if not later in the day and one person even a day later than I ordered. But theirs was the 16gb model. So that leads me to believe that apple must manufacture a larger capacity of the 16gb gold models. I was excited to see that those individuals received a tracking number and I know sometime this new week I should receive mine. Cheers to all for being patient and posting their experience with this whole thing.

@Bo.Langly Based on previous iPhones consumers tend to gravitate towards the 16GB (or whatever is the cheapest model at the time.) So in this case because the 16GB is the cheapest, that will be the one Apple usually produces more of.

@Jad94 same here! I'm probably the most impatient person ever. I pretty much check my status 5 times a day! But then I realized I should stop thinking about so time'll go by faster. But then again! I really can't. I have a feeling they're going to come soon. Couple more weeks.

@Jad94 Lets hope that we get them before the month ends! That would be sick. It's seems like they're starting to ship the gold sept 20th-22nd ones and are earlier than the estimates. It's only a matter of time

@Jad94 @jemo I'm on the same boat as you guys. I ordered my 16 GB Gold model on Monday 10/7. I'm so eager to get it and am checking it 5 times or more each day hoping it's been shipped. Really hope next week is our week or at least before November. Smiley Happy

Have you guys seen how much the golds are selling for on eBay and craigslist and such. Like 1000 dollars.. I live in Washington state and there are hundreds of ads on craigslist for them.

@Bo.Langley Yeah I know right? It's insane. I would never pay that much. It also surprises me that people actually buy them too

I'm getting $220.00 from Gazelle for my 4S but I have to send it to them and be in their possession by 10/31 or I won't get that much for it. That's why I'm kind of upset that there's been no change in the status. I suppose I could always sell the 4S some other way and maybe even get more for it?

You can always check AT&T Trade-In Program.

Trade-In Promotion It does take approximately 4-6 for your rewards card to arrive at which time you are free to spend it on AT&T products and services ie: Accessories, Billing, etc.

I completely understand that anticipation waiting for your new iPhone to arrive. Currently the Silver and Space Gray are set to ship in 7-14 days and the gold is 32+ days. Strangely enough I do not see more gold ordered than the others, so even as an online Sales Chat Agent it is a mystery as to why. Congrats on your new device, I hope it arrives very soon.

I just checked to see what AT&T would give me(trade-in) and it said $200.00. I also just checked Craigslist for my area and people are asking anywhere from $200.00 to more than $300.00 for a 16gb 4S.

Hey, I ordered a 16gb gold 5s the 21st at around 8pm, the sim card has a 0 for backordered but the iphone has nothing. Does this mean when the iphone gets a 0 it'll ship soon. Also has anybody ordered around my time and their iphone already shipped?

@Jwalshy.. i ordered at 4 pacific time the same day (32gb) and mine has shown the phone prep to ship for a couple weeks now and the SIM went from backorderd to proceasing around the same time. I'd like to think our phones will probably ship this week. I'm prepared to wait till Friday but something tells me we won't have to wait too much longer

It depends if it's been processed through the sort facility and if it is ready for departure.  It will say that on the tracking info. Smiley Wink

 

(I order on-line a lot.  Sometimes I get the packages a few days before the estimated delivery date, sometimes I get them up to a week or two after.)

If I knew it was going to be like this, I wouldn't have placed my order. Expected delivery is still 10/4 - 10/15. SIM card still shows backordered which supposedly is a system error and shouldn't show that. Which I don't believe. Tomorrow is 10/15. I wonder if it will still say that a week from now when nothing changes?

Jwalshy98- My iphone 5s shipped on 10/8 with a expected delivery of 10/11. On 10/9 they realized the package was moving a lot faster then they anticipated and updated the the delivery date to 10/10. The morning of 10/10 at 4am it said it was on the truck for delivery. I read somewhere that if it doesn't get on the truck for delivery before 8am it will not be delivered that day but the next. But you never know!! Congrats on having your phone ship!

I ordered mine on 10/11 through the internet for the 16GB Silver. It gave me a shipping date of 10/22-10/31, I checked my order number through the website and it said shipped. Which I thought was odd because I hadn't received any updates through e-mail. So I spoke to a rep and they gave me a tracking number! It's in Ft. Worth which is an hour away from where I live. Hopefully I get it today if not tomorrow! So I'm not sure what this means for anyone else, but obviously something is not matching up concidering I spoke to a rep this morning before this one who told me they would not ship any earlier than the date provided (10/22-10/31).
