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!

Hi,

 

I have been watching this thread since I ordered.  I ordered a 32gold from AT&T early morning Oct 3rd, my delivery dates are 11/12-12/2.  No movement or word from AT&T.  No charges to my bank after the original ping when I ordered.  So three weeks today.  I wasn't in a hurry, but my old iPhone 4 is gasping....

My shipment estimate is 11/21/2013 to 12/11/2013 is this normal? I ordered on 10-14. Does anyone have this as their estimate, and do you even have an estimate? I ordered a gold 16g iphone 5s.

@rob Does the status on the order say preparing to ship, and how long do you think it would take to ship? I am so sorry about all the questions, I can't wait for it to ship Smiley Sad

So I smashed my phone and now I need a new one, due for an upgrade, so I thought the 5s was most logical. Just realized the insane wait times! However I read that apple just switched their wait times to 2-3 weeks! So is it better to order att or apple!?!?!

I ordered 10/15 and have those same dates. However 2 people on this thread recently got their 16gb gold phones after a 10-15 day wait. The ship dates will improve as they get more stock in. I fully expect to get my phone before my earliest estimate of 11/22

@rararagining we should keep each other posted I ordered on 10/15 with estimated dates of 11/22-12/12 I ordered a 16gb gold as well. 32 GB orders have had to wait a lot longer than 16gb. Ours should ship in the next 4-10 days.

This thread is the only thing that kept me sane. If I actually had to wait until nov 22 I probably would've lost it lol. I just want my phone! I'm upgrading from a 3GS so you can imagine how crucial of an upgrade this is.

Ordered iPhone 5S Gold 32g on 10/5
It's been 20 days today.

Still no money taken out of my account.
Still no update on the shipping information. Stuck with "preparing to ship"

I called att an he basically told me im on my own, try calling apple. There {word filter evasion} useless. They should at least know what is going on.

I called apple and got the same response. They have no clue.

So if att and apple doesnt know anything, who the {word filter evasion} is going to know_-

Great news guys, i went online to see if the att site has better shipping estimates for new gold orders and they do! they now have a 14-21 day shipping estimate for 16 gb gold, 21-35 days for 32 gb gold, and 28-35 days for 64 gb gold as opposed to the 28-42 day estimate. So as we thought 32 and 64 are taking longer to ship out. Hopefully the 14-21 day counts for my 10/15 order and it will ship in 4 days.

@Ceelo07 You have a 32 gb gold so immediately looking at 21-35 days, though people have been getting them sooner than estimated your original estimate was 28-42 i would expect a 20-25 days wait until shipping. as i posted a few days ago the average wait time is 20 days. But 32 gb does make things harder.

 

@invione I wish i could do the same, but hopefully since i ordered 16gb my wait wont be much longer.

@Lapointe23 I feel your pain...ordered a 64gb gold on 9/23 and I'm still in "preparing to ship" limbo, as well. What's so sad is that so many people are now asking "I ordered on 'so and so day in October'" without realizing there are people like us who ordered within the first week of launch that are still waiting. I'm at 33 days and counting; expected ship date 10/31-11/20. There have been numerous folks who ordered after us that have their phones already (mostly 16gb gold, and some 32gb if I recall correctly).

 

What makes it even worst is that I ordered and am doing AT&T Next, and on my next bill (due 11/12) I'm already being charged my first installment payment and I don't even have the phone yet!

@wang_dynasty I also ordered on the next program and was charged. I called ATT and they credited my account.

@wang_dynasty It sucks! I just want my phone already!! I had to order it through AT&T since I was still under contract on another carrier and there have been a few apple stores around me that had some 32GB gold in stock, but in order for me to get those I would have to go to the AT&T store and cancel my order and then have AT&T recontact Sprint to get access to my number again and then I'd have to go to the Apple store and get the phone set up. Would have been a hassle, but now I'm kinda regretting not doing that. The Apple stores are of course out again, and I'm still here waiting. Tomorrow will be a full month of waiting. Not fun.
