Mine has a ship date of 11/2 it was just sent in for processing. It will not come any sooner. I'm sorry. We all have been waiting weeks here. Some even months. Yours should come in the mail Tuesday Novemeber 20th
I ordered on 10/25 and also got a ship date of 11/16. The one thing I will say is that if you go on Verizon today........which is 8 days after I ordered mine, it is still saying 11/16 for a ship date. That seems like a good sign since the back order date is only 2 weeks from today instead of 3. So, I am staying optimistic that it could ship sooner, but either way I have my 4 and I am happy.
I ordered mine on 10/26 with 11/16 as the ship date. I just checked the status and it updated but with a blank tracking number and my card just got charged. Fingers crossed it goes out today. It is a black 32gb.
