    I'm getting tired of calling places. Where should I order my phone from? AT&T or Apple? Which one would get it here faster? Less hassle?

    I was very pleased with ordering directly from Apple for my AT&T iPhone, plus I received it about a week ahead of the estimated arrival time.

    Another question, if let's say I order tonight, and the estimated shopping date is October 29th, 4 weeks, and lets say on October 2nd it goes to 1-2 weeks waiting time, will I get my phone sooner?

    You will probably get it faster not ordering.

    Mac are you not close to the store ?
    For Apple Retail Stores, buy online between 10:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. local time for in-store pickup the next day. Limited quantities available.​

    Apple, forget AT&T.

    Nope, I have called 10 stores every day since the day it was launched and nobody had it, and they are all saying they have not even forfilled the preorders and it would be about 28 days before they get any.

    I would think your shipment will move up also. You'll have the tracking number to know.

    I've called the stores too, gave up on the big names (Apple, ATT, Best Buy) I started looking at those stores less focused on (not necessarily smaller stores) one a local retailer not in the big 3 stocks the iPhone 5 in my area (Target in my case). They said they will have some more come in next wk, the cell phone associate took my name and number and said he will call me when they arrive and hold one for me. Let's see if that really happens, I'm a little skeptical, if so I will be back w/an update on that story.

    Target actually had some by me. I overheard someone ask for one.

    And they had speck, belkin and griffin cases and screen protectors. I was shocked. Way better selection then AT&T and Verizon had

    I've been checking target, and they said they won't be getting any in a long time!

    They probably won't.

    But considering the amount of accessories they had I will be checking every so often for new lightning cable accessories

    The hour and a half drive would be worth it, no?

    You can order from Apple and keep checking your local stores and cancel your order if you find one. Good luck Mac, keep us posted.

    I'd go with Apple. Like other people have said try to make it to a store even if it's far. If not then just order and wait it's your safest bet.
