I have been reading on here that the ship date is a "ship by date" and it means you will receive it by that date, so it will either be mailed over night on the 23rd, or mailed a few days in advance.
Yeah I am super anxious to get my iphone as well:) My date is October 14th.. hoping for an earlier shipping date. You might get yours early, I belive the 9/24 date went to the first batch of iphones Did you get the gold?
I just ran my order number through the Verizon order status site and I there is now a FedEx Tracking Number listed as of 11:00 EST. FedEx lists the item as "Picked Up" in Memphis, TN today (9/22) at 11:22AM EST. The delivery is scheduled for Wed, 9/25 by 4:30PM. I still have no email from Verizon regarding the shipment, however.
I ordered the 32GB gold version of the iPhone 5S.
