I ordered mine at 7am pacific time, the confirmation said I would have it on the 21st. I still don't have it. Called and spoke to customer service and they said it was not even shipped today.
Ordered mine at 10:30 am on September 14 and mine has just been charged to my credit card today. I also have the 26th marked as the expected ship date. I'd expect the shipping date will be occupied within the next 24 hours or so on the order status page. Here's hoping it gets here a little earlier.
I ordered mine on the 14th around noon. Just checked and my card was charged... but no tracking number yet. I called the CSR who I bought my phone from and he said it might come earlier then the 26th.
The Verizon email was that even though I ordered on 9/14/12 EST at 12:03 noon, my new iphone 5 should come on Wed. 9/26. However, at 6:37pm this evening got confirmation that it will be earlier by one day on 9/25/12 (Tue.) before 3:00pm along with a Fed. Ex shipping number.
Ordered mine on 9/14 at 10:24 AM EST. Confirmation said that delivery date is 9/26. CC has an authorization charge as of yesterday, but not an actual charge. Order status still has no update (says processing and shipping date is 9/21....) and no shipping email. I'm hoping it ships out tomorrow, so I'll get it by Wednesday...
