I am comparing Att.com estimates with Apple.com estimates. What are you comparing?

 

Nobody knows the actual shipping dates yet (for neither). But apple.com has done a better job shipping stuff faster in the past because it is their devices and their supply chain.

Re: Official Iphone 5s order status thread

 just got my email in the last hour, 32gb black says 10-21 - 10-31.  I am guessing these dates will change as the system gets updated. I hopefully expect it in less time, but we will see.  If not no big deal, but what really sucks is the fact that I am at work and people are still walking in my local store and picking up 5S's as of just a few minutes ago!

I need my 32gb silver Iphone 5s before my quoted shipping dates of 10/21 as I have a Gazzelle.com offer of $225.00 for my Iphone 4s that expires on 10/15.....one of the main reasons of ordering at 2:55am EST.

I ordered the 64GB Silver iPhone 5S via the Apple site at 3:06AM and my estimated delivery is Sept 27th-Oct. 1st. My order status is currently "Processing Items". So glad I went through Apple and not AT&T. I feel bad for you guys. :/

I feel bad for me too lol, a month is a long time to wait!  Wish I would have went to apple first as well, not sure why I didnt think of that with all the long waits I have had in the past with ATT!

what estimate from att are you comparing to the website - the one you got when you actually placed your order and it was accepted by the commerce server, the one that you link from the apple site has no basis in accuracy, you will not know what the actual ship / delivery date of the the device, until you recieve confirmation of the purchase it is not accurate. From what you provide they may have been 100 left in stock when you start but when you press purchase and fill in the billing information you where number 101 on the list.

 

I am comparing actual shipping dates to "estimates" just becasue it tells you "estimaed shipping date 7 to 10 days" the key word is estimate, not actual.

funny, that has never been the case before and considering the Apple web store is showing the 2 year discounted price don;t think that comment was accurate

Re: Official Iphone 5s order status thread

So the 10/21 - 10/30 estimated ship had me wanting to know what was going on since I had "preparing to ship" status I spoke to Jordan customer premier rep and she told me that my phone will arrive within 10 business days.  The month window is only to allow them time to get product.  If you see "preparing to ship" and not "processing"  I would not be suprised if phones arrived sometime next week.

Re: Official Iphone 5s order status thread

We ordered 2 Gold 64GB phones through the Apple Store app, at 3:10 AM EDT.  Shipping estimate for both is 7-10 business days.  According to MacRumors...the Gold 64GB model went to "Shipping in October" after 28 minutes of going on sale.

 

Apple has notoriously been easier to order from, than AT&T, and also the shipping estimates are worst case scenario.  I'm betting it ships early to mid next week, with delivery on 9/30 - 10/4.

 

Current status is "Processing Items"
