I ordered mine 10/13 but people who's ship date was 10/19 are just getting theirs. So I hope they pick up the pace & send ours out like next week!

I ordered my iPhone 5 black 16gb on the 13th of October. I have a ship date of 11/2 as well. My friend who ordered about a week before me has his ship date at the 26th. He got an email from verizon saying it may come sooner. When his ships/ if it ships 2morrow a week early I'll update this post. If it ships tommorow I'll bet we get a ship date of 10/26. Do you know how verizon ships? Do they wait until the whole batch of 11/2 ordered are ready or do they start shipping then even if some 11/2 ordered arent ready yet.

I don't really know how they're shipping works. I hope they don't do it

batches though. I have an old Samsung phone and it freezes like three

times a day. I have been waiting for a new phone for like a year now and

now I have to wait even longer. A little frustrating to say the least. Oh

well it is what it is I guess.

Seeing how people who ordered the same day as me 9/27 are getting charged and ship dates (I have yet to have my charged), who knows how they're deciding because it's not based on when you ordered it. As of right now I won't see my phone until next Friday which will be 4 weeks and a day of when I ordered. So the whole 2-3 week estimate is a lie.

I ordered my white 16GB on the 13th as well.  I've yet to see anything on the forums anywhere showing people who ordered around that time are seeing any change in status yet.

There doesn't seem to be a lot of rhyme or reason as to how the shipments are being processed either.  I've seen some posts by people who ordered (granted, not from VZW) who still haven't received their phones yet. 

Keep us posted if anyone gets a shipping notification!!!

I originally ordered a white 16GB on the 10/10 from Apple. After thinking more about it I cancelled and ordered a white 32GB from Verizon on 10/15. Today it was shipped!!! I can't believe I only had to wait 4 days! So unless you really want the 16GB I would suggest getting the 32GB and you'll get it a lot sooner.

I ordered my iphone 5 in store on 9/27 and was given a ship date of 10/26.  I have yet to receive it, I'm hoping it will come early but I'm thinking it's not going to.  I didn't receive an email saying it had been shipped just an email of my receipt.  Does anyone know if it comes thru USPS or UPS or FedEx? I didn't even think about asking that when I ordered the phone.

I ordered a 16GB black model on 10/7 and was given a ship-by date of 11/2. I've checked the order status daily and it hasn't been updated with a tracking number, so I'm assuming it hasn't shipped yet. I'm in no real rush. I've heard Foxconn was ordered by Apple to get their act together due to some iPhone 5's shipping with minor cosmetic defects and such. So if waiting a bit longer gets me a pristine unit, I'm fine with that. I personally wouldn't switch to the white, which is nice but not as nice as black, just to get it a week earlier. Like Axl said, "All we need is just a little patience."

I pre ordered my iPhone 5 - 16g, on September 17th, at a Verizon kiosk at a mall. I share a family plan with my brother. He has been eligible for an upgrade for 6 months and my upgrade date is Nov. 17th. The manager told me that I can use his upgrade so I did that. Then he told me that if I just pre order it through him I can come pick it up when they receive the iPhones on sept.21st because one would be set aside for me....well no such luck. I paid for half of the phone and have an invoice for that. Unfortunately there is no tracking number whatsoever on there.  Apparently none of the carriers in my town received iPhones to their stores on sept.21st. I was told that it would take a week until they receive any and he would call me. It is now October 19th and I have not received a call. I've stopped in and called and I keep getting the same story, they haven't received any but once they do he will call me. I am not getting any dates of when to expect the phone. I told the manager 3 weeks ago that I am going on vacation Oct.26th and asked if i would have an iPhone by then, he said oh no it won't take that long. 2 weeks ago I got a call and the manager asked for my Verizon password and wanted to confirm my order and he said i'm working on getting you a phone. Since then I have heard nothing.

Normally I would be able to wait it out but I really want to have the iPhone on my vacay. My current phone is the thunderbolt and the battery life on that is horrible.

Anyone have any suggestions of what I can do?

I was told by a  few differant reps from differant stores and towns that no stores would get phones until all preoders have been filled and that seems to be true cause I have checked everyday since I ordered mine. That includes all Verizon retailers not just Verizon stores.

I ordered my 64gb iPhone 5 in black on Oct 15 with a projected ship data of Oct 26. They just billed my credit card for it today, Oct 19... and my order status has now changed to show a box for a tracking number to be entered. Can't Wait!

64 gb and 32gb are shipping within a week or two compared to the 16gb because the 16g is the one most people want.

My phone was just shipped yesterday and will be here on Monday when it was supposed to be Friday, these next 2 days are going to suck waiting for it but it's so worth it!
