For those with an Expected Ship Date 10/26 on their iPhone 5

i have recently placed an order, like 5 days ago. If you pre-ordered recently with an expected ship date of 10/26, have you received your phone yet? is that date their estimate, and some people could get theirs earlier?

Thanks

I pre ordered mine on the 16th of September, a 16GB white...originally was gonna ship by Oct 5th, now it's been pushed back to October 26th. I am seriously angry right now. Called Verizon Wireless, they told me to call Apple b/c it's out of their grasp, called Apple, Apple says it's not their problem if the carrier doesn't have enough iphones. 0_o

This is bullshit. For those of us who pre ordered the same weekend the preordering started, this is seriously unjust and incredibly annoying

I didn't even pre-order my iPhone. I ordered it from Verizon's website on Sept. 27 with a ship date of Oct. 26. I wasn't even expecting it to ship before then, but I received an email on Oct. 10 saying it had shipped. I received my iPhone 5 in the mail today! I guess I just got lucky. Smiley Happy

Yeah i ordered mine on the 4th had a ship by date of the 26th. My card was charged yesterday afternoon and i got a delivery date of tuesday. I know i ordered mine online. What i was told is that who gets them first, or those shipped early have nothing to do with were you live. It has to do with the demand for the specific phone you ordered. I got a 64gb white. So i'm getting mine because there were less orderer, and more availblility for my phone at an earlier time.There was ALOT of orders placed for the 16gb phones so if thats what you ordered unfortunately it maybe the 26th before it ships.

I did also find out that they charge the card when they pull your order package for shipping. So just watch for the charge to come out.

Sounds like something may be wrong with your order. My date has always been 10/12 and still hasnt changed. I ordered the same iphone as you on 9/20

No joke. I would try calling verizon again. Your order should not just get pushed back for no reason. Might have something to do with your CC.

It's neithers Verizon or AT&T's fault, it is Apple fault for not having the amount of phones to give, they knew they were going to sell millions, i have they wanted to take the risk and make a few millions.

what ever carrier you switch you will tell you the same. Verizon has to wait for apple to deliver the iPhones to their warehouse
