@Pryda ...USPS was closed both Sunday and Monday. They notoriously have the WORST tracking system.

Re: Official Iphone 5s order status thread

I just ordered mine today in store *sigh* wasn't upgrade elligible until today. Gold 16 GB says preparing to ship while various sim says processing. Estimated ship dates are 11/22-12/12. UGH! I should have gone with silver but I really wanted that gold. Hopefully it takes only 20 days as some of you have posted. The waiting game begins and I am way to impatient for waiting games.

the problem is - people that have ordered are reporting in this thread that they got their phones, which pretty well disproves your statement  


 

People are just now starting to receive 16gb gold, today is 10/15, they went on sale 9/20.  Hardly anyone has received 32 or 64gb gold.  So what makes my statement false about them not having the phone in stock?


because it was reported internationally that by apple that the stock on the gold iphones sold out within 5 hours of release and that apple has contacted the manufacutring plant in china to up the production of gold iphones to fulfill the back orders, you can seach wall street journel, huffington post and all the other reputable news reporting services for verifications. Add to the fact that the posts here indicated that people HAVE recieved gold iphones that ordered then within the first few hours of release. There is a major difference of not having the phone in stock and selling out of the stock they had almost immediately, this was your original statement - " I think they never had in stock from day one"

Does apple changing the shipping date for gold iPhones to 2-3weeks affect our shipping dates? I hope it does! Since they're starting to ship out phones maybe we'll get ours too and hopefully it wouldn't take 28-42 days anymore.

would depend on how many the got from china, their orders are filled first then some are allocated to the uthorized retailers


Where are you getting your information?  Apple is not filling there orders first.  Just like some 16gb golds have been delivered to people that ordered from apple.com, 32 and 64gb gold people are still waiting.  You can follow those forums at macrumors.com.  I personally ordered a gold 32gb from att on launch day at 12:05am - still waiting and I ordered a silver 32gb from apple.com on 9/25 - which I received 10/11


Where did I state that about apple? When product is ordered from the manufacturer and there are other vendors that alsoo sell the product the total number is divided between the parent company and the authorized retailers, if 100 items where delivered and there are 2 other vendors besides the parent company for a total of 3, the parent compay will take the larger slice of product delivered for their sales that distribute the rest between the autorized vendors - Apple gets 50 for all their sale outlets, vendors get 25 each. After 40+ years of running my business I do know how it works

@BlazeApple, you should order from Apple! Less wait time. 2-3 weeks for all models.

I really don't care about all you are posting.  My point is that AT&T did not have stock!!!!!!  So where are your post on AT&T facts?

 

Any way just to let you guys know that maybe AT&T might finally have stock in 32gb Gold bcause my order placed 9/20 12:05am Shipped this morning.  Good luck people.

Re: Official Iphone 5s order status thread

Because they're going to get them back in stock, and before you even place your order it tells you when it's expected to be delivered because of this. Robot Indifferent

Re: Official Iphone 5s order status thread

Well, looks like my wait ended today. I just happened to go on to the Apple website and I saw that there were some Gold 32GB in stock in a town close by. I called and cancelled my online Apple order and purchased in-store pickup about 5 mins later. So I will have my phone later! =D

must be the virtual iphone that is being sold, funny how you assume that ATT should have stock when apple did not even have stock, like running out of dorritos, you can always make more but the logistics and manufacturing of said dorrito takes time and depends the matieral supplies to supply the raw matieral to manufacture to the companies that manufacture the various components, then you have the production time of those components, then shipping time of those components, the the factory in china has to build the device, then it has to ship.

 

Congradulations on your toy, glad you finally got it, see you next year when the iphone 6 is displayed and can be pre-ordered

that just proves the majority of the stock is staying with apple and not being distributed to their authorized vendors

Re: Official Iphone 5s order status thread

Hey all I've been following this thread since I placed my order: gold 64gb placed on 9/23. I noticed many of you who ordered gold models (albeit 16gb) around the same time have either received your phones or gotten shipping notifications already.

 

Anyone with updates on 32/64gb gold models ordered within the first 3 days of launch? I have to return this 4S I'm using by 10/21 and I'm getting increasingly anxious/frustrated.

 

Thanks!!
