It's hard to believe those that ordered so close to launch day are getting screwed. But at least you guys are finally getting your shipments. Congrats and enjoy

Re: Official Iphone 5s order status thread

For those of you that ordered in Sep and still have no update, it's almost worth canceling and reodering. It's AWFUL and I'm guessing the reason that there is no consistency concerning when you ordered vs when you get it, is less about where or how you ordered but perhaps where you live? Perhaps there are multiple distribution centers in the country?? Not sure about that but what I do know is that it appears that people who are ordering now have a very reasonable and normal shipping time. UNFAIR!!! The only reason that I won't switch is because 1. people at Verizon seem to be going through the same thing. I think it was more Apple than the cell phone companies initially 2. No other carrier allows internet use while you're on the phone unless you're connected to wifi and that's a biggie for me 3. I can use my phone with ease when I travel abroad... another biggie for me. Aside from that I can understand switching. The other option is always canceling and reordering. It seems that people have had better luck with that.

Apple Store online shipping times have changed to 1-2 weeks also. Some stores even have the gold in stock.

It seems to be a trend with the AT&T Next orders too. For whatever reason they seem to take a lot longer to ship, according to this thread. But as I've said before, if someone is not ordering through AT&T Next, it's worth it just to cancel the order and track one down in store or order from Apple. No way would I be waiting this long (30+ days) for it, unless I just wanted to do the Next program and didn't have a choice but to go through AT&T.

@rarebeauty I tend to agree with your observation. I ordered via ATT next on 9/23 and I'm still sitting in "preparing to ship" limbo. I would've ordered through Apple but you cannot do the next program through them; only ATT. I'm going on 50 (calendar) days now...36 business days. Ridiculous.

Re: Official Iphone 5s order status thread

@Dyjhae1, they probably have a different policy for the Next program because you should be able to cancel your order as long as you have not been charged for it and it hasn't shipped. But from my understanding, when you use the Next program, you start seeing the installments on your bill the very next month. So maybe that's why they won't let you cancel? I don't know.

Yes mine finally shipped!
Ordered on 9/25 and expected to be here tomorrow so if it actually comes by tomorrow, I would have waited exactly 7 weeks(35 business days) since I placed my order. 

yesterday I saw that AT&T charged my account for the phone and I checked my order status today and said shipped

Re: Official Iphone 5s order status thread

Well got it and love.  ( but sorta wondering why we wanted a gold one when first thing we'll slap a case on it that covers all the gold part). Couple of things, remember a 5 case will not work, on the 5 s the earphone jack has been moved to the bottom. And to activate it you do not have to full writing all the sim idma numbers down.  Just call the 1 800 number and select option 1.

@tcc8372, iPhone 5 cases do work with the 5s because the headphone jack is in the same spot. They are also the same size. The only cases people might run into a problem with are the Otterbox Defender cases made for the iPhone 5 since the home button is covered. But they have now made a Defender case specifically for the 5s with the home button cut out.
