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!

@apple_crazy Keep us updated on your iPhone because I ordered a day after you, the same exact phone.. 32 GIG iPhone 5S. Whenever you get it, mine should be following soon after.

Ordered 9/24. Space gray 36gb. Been through many conversations with customer service and they assured me that everything is proceeding as it should. After still being backorderd as of this morning I decided to call the local AT&T store. Guess what? They had 4 of what I was looking for. Went in, after some problems with them canceling my order, it finally did and I walked out with my new phone. I've never seen something so messed up in my life as this simple order.

It's the same thing as a two year contract if you want to own your phone instead of trading it in. If you want to get a new phone you have to start all over again for the 20 months, if you want to do a standard upgrade you have to wait till the full 20 months are over and phone is paid off. It's the same thing! but anyways, I got an email saying there's a gold iphone in my local store. I'm torn between canceling my order or not!!

@Antjenkins. I know, it's really crazy and I'm not too happy about it but I've got my phone and I'm getting $220.00 for my old one.

Ordered a gold 5s 32 gb phone in store on 9/24 in Topeka Kansas.

 

Just today the order showed up online on my at&t account with a shipping date of November 1 to November 21.

 

How accurate do you think this will be?

 

 

I was going to buy an unlocked phone off of ebay and use a Net10 at&t nano sim card, but I am porting my old home phone number from net10 for the iphone. The local store said I would probably use the number if I canceled my order even though I was able to add air time to the number that is in que to be ported. As such I wait.

@Kaw Valley Cat I ordered my 64gb gold on 9/23. I'm located in the DC metro area. Since I ordered, my shipping estimate has been 10/31-11/20. Being that I haven't received any shipping notification, I'd say your estimate is pretty accurate. Though, we've seen lots of movement for 16/32gb models in the past couple weeks but, unfortunately for me, nothing re: 64gb.

@Robbie I did an in store order too, and my order has always said that. From day one. It never said it was on back order or anything. Which is stupid. But I guess that's how AT&T does it.

@BlazeApple it was actually 10/18 at 12:51am when it shipped and pre-ordered it 10/7 around 7PM. Estimated shipping dates were 11/14/13-12/06/13 and it arrived 10/21 around 4PM. I hope that helps you.
