SO, I'm planning to order myself a 32 GB Gold iPhone 5S tonight.

Anyone have any good tips to expedite the process?
If you're ordering through the Apple store app, be sure you have your info ( C. Card) in your profile before you go to order. That can make it a bit quicker to place & process the order.

I Was just going to go through the Apple Website. I thought that maybe quicker than the app on the phone or iPad.
Gotcha. Shoot, try both ;)
I'm wondering if there is going to be as much of a demand as before?
Yeah right, who am I kidding? If Apple sells it, they will come... In droves! Lol. Best of luck to ya.

Make sure your credit card billing address is the same address as the wireless account you're on as well. That was a problem for me a few years ago.

I'm guessing this is a 3 a.m. (Eastern) launch as per usual, right?

Going for 32 GB black.

Does anyone know at what point in the ordering process you find out how long you will have to wait for shipping? I'm just thinking more and more that if I can't get a gold one shipped pretty fast, I'll go get a space gray locally.

Apple should have the estimated deliveries listed in a little over an hour.

Ordered via the Apple Store app. Took two seconds.

Delivery is Sept. 30-Oct. 2, unfortunately. Hoping it comes a bit sooner, of course.

Second year in a row I ordered through Verizon direct... Was able to order about 3-4min til the hour... I was like, holy sh$@#t.. Went right through and ships by the 24th of Sept.. So if it's coming from in the US I'll have it Thurs., Fri. at the latest.. Probably even if it's shipping through China..
Another note, was able to get on and process through Apples website as well, but was deciding who to go with and in that time the shipping times through Apple changed to a week later.. WOW! Glad I went through Verizon, and it was cheaper than Apple..
Had a great experience with Verizon last year doing the phone through them, but also would recommend doing square trade for the warranty.. Much better than Apple..

32gb silver, 9/27-10/1 delivery. I tried using the app and it declined my card twice, ended up using the Apple store site on my pc.

Little depressed that it won't be coming next week...but if I remember from one of the years past...sometimes the orders get bumped up a few days...so keep your eyes peeled.

32 GB Gold. Sep 30 - Oct 2 delivery date. Used the Apple Store App. Made sure it was all set up this afternoon. I have an extra pass code on my ATT account and ordering one of the new leather cases took a few extra seconds, but it was very fast.

I'm still debating whether to cancel my order and hit the local store tomorrow and settle for space grey.
I don't think you can cancel it at this point. It's probably processing. Also, it can take up to 10 days to reset your eligibility after canceling an order.

Ordered as soon as the Apple Store App went live, 32 GB Space Grey.
Didn't see the option for "Express Delivery" for an extra $10.
Order said Ships in 1-3 Business days, with expected delivery of 9/30-10/2.
Called Apple's 800 number, and they switched my order to Next Day delivery for free.
Delivery date only changed slightly to 9/27-10/1.
