The current expected shipping date is 10/19 but that is for orders placed today. Always go off of what YOUR order says because it is dependent on the date ordered.
No. I do not believe so. After reading the message again when I wasn't so tired I kicked myself for saying the wrong thing.
The order was received as in placed on 9/24. The actual shipping time has not yet been determined. Depending on the Model and Color and GB storage size and the amount of stock (which is currently 0) will determine your estimated shipping time.
While yes, the October 5th shipping date given by the representative is different than the one I told you as I said it is dependent on the phone. Some people are seeing shipping dates as far back as November. There is not enough iPhones around, and therefore shipping dates are pushed back even farther.
I would rely on October 5th as your ESTIMATED shipping date but take note this can change at any time. Keep an eye on your order status to see if it changes.
Again I apologize for the confusion I was working my overnight shift and was tired.
