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 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??

My ship date was scheduled for the 26th.  Got it yesterday, 64 G black, no scratches.

New to Verizon, wife and I have a, retired, total of 72 years with AT&T but just couldn't

handle the dropped calls, no service, etc, any longer so here we are!

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'm about to do a happy dance folks. I ordered a black 64gb iphone 5 on Oct 15 and they just charged my credit card for it today, Oct 19. The status also changed to reflect a place for a tracking number to be entered. Hopefully they will ship soon!

me too!  16gb black.  Money just left my account.  For those of you that have gone before, are we looking at 2 biz days for shipping?  3?

NYC12 -- 9/27.  Today is the first notice of any sign of movement toward shipment.  My bank has a pending status of the full amount and on VZW order status there's a place for a tracking number.  However, the status still states the my order will "ship by" 10/26.  Still curious what others experienced when all of the above happened to them?  2 more days? 3 more days?came on ship date? came after ship date?

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'm in the same boat as Guitar_banae. Ordered my 32 gig on the 17th and now the order status for me has also changed to show where the tracking numbered would be entered and a slot for the Courier as well.

How long before it went from pending to actually charged? I woke up this morning and the status said "Payment not taken" and the delivery date was pushed from 10/26 to 11/09! So a call was made and turned out to be a card expiration date issue, got it changed and now there's a pending charge on the account but my tracking still says the payment was taken and now the estimated delivery says "not available." Now I'm hopeful since there's a pending charge that this is a sign of progress, but I'm curious how long it sat at the pending stage. Thanks for any feedback, because my heart shattered this morning seeing it would be over a month until I saw my phone!

Ordered a 16gb in black on October 1, 2012 from Verizon.  Nothing has changed in the status, so I'm expecting it by the 26th of October. It's worth the wait.
