I was out of town for the launch and wasn't able to per-order. I made it back home late on Sunday after shipments started (9/23) but everyone local to me was sold out or hadn't received their shipments and had a wait list. I was sure I could hold out until the dust settled and stock replenished, yeah right. LOL.

I placed an order on 9/26 from Apple and was told 3-4 weeks. At the time of my order I also ordered an extra Lightning to USB charging cable and a 30 pin to Lightning adapter. Well, I received my USB cable on 9/26 a week ahead of the predicted ship date and I just received today my 30 pin adapter which at the time didn't have a projection simply stating "October".

Well, here I sit with my cable and adapter and no phone which isn't scheduled until November 1st...ugh!

Hmm. I'm kinda surprised it hasn't already shipped. I ordered a 32 GB white at an AT&T store on 9/24. The shipping quote was 21-28 businesss days, but it shipped on 10/3 and arrived on 10/5. The 16s are in the highest demand and taking the longest to ship. I bet yours will be shipping out any day now.

Thanks for the encouragement. That would sure be nice. I don't have an Apple store near me so the after 10:00pm order, store pickup route wasn't an option. Still no stock local to me so this was seemingly my only option so I sure hope you're right. That would be a wonderful surprise. I'm attempting to will them to ship early, LOL. I check my order status daily. LOL.

Try checking several times a day - it worked for me. ;)

Good luck getting it soon!

You guys tried calling stores? I ordered a black 16 gb on 9/17 (or whenever preorders first started) and received it on 9/21. It was in bad shape and wifi didn't work so I took it back and reactivated my old phone. Then, I was reading about the white not being known for as many scuffs and the wifi issue was hit or miss. So, I ordered a white 16 gb on the 26th. On 9/30, I decided to call around and the first place I called (radioshack) had a white 16 gb preorder that nobody picked up. I drove down there, walked out with it about 45 minutes later and cancelled my order with Verizon. :)
