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

Mine shipped too! Okay so here's the order of things for those of you that are curious. I placed my order for a 64gb black iphone 5 on Oct 14. On Oct 19 I noticed a hold on my credit card for the full amount and thus the appearance of the box with a place for tracking info on Verizon's update status. I received confirmation of shipping today Oct 21 at 2:54pm central time and my tracking info was reflected in the box on Verizon's update status. When I check my tracking info it shows that it has shipped on Oct 21 with a projected delivery date of Oct 24 by 4:30pm, however the phone is shipping (at least for me) from Tennessee. Shipping info also shows phone is being sent via FedEx 2 day service with an indirect signature. Hopefully since Tennessee is so close (I'm in Alabama), I'll have it sooner than the 24th. One thing is for sure, I won't be leaving my house for the next few days LOL. Good luck to all the rest of you that are waiting it out.

I ordered mine on 9/27.  I have not been charged and have not seen ANY activity on the order.  Just says expected ship date is 10/26.  I too wonder if we'll get them sooner than that or if it will be later.  Since 10/26 is a Friday, I guess we may not get our phones until 10/30 maybe??

no you will get your phone by 10/26 if it comes on time they ship overnight or two days prior to the ship date so either way you will receive it on 10/26

I ordered the iPhone 5 white in 16 gb on Sept. 30 and got a ship date for Oct. 26. So, I am still waiting. I am thinking of changing my preorder for a 32 gb as I might get it earlier??

i ordered a 32gb and had a 10/26 date and i am slated (per fedex tracking) to get it on 10/16....you should get it slightly earlier than the 10/26 estimate.

I feel like I'm in this same boat.  Status hasn't changed since 9/27.  I ordered the 16gb black.  Any advice or encouragement from anyone out there?

if you want your iphone now, cancel order and call local verizon. they most likely have 32GB available, if u really want 16GB then wait and dont cancel.

I'll need to wait...don't want to spend the extra $$ for more space.  It is what it is I suppose.  It seems that some people on here have received their phones sooner than the expected date so MAYBE I'll get lucky too.
