I ordered gold and silver iPhone 5Ses on 9/20 at 3 am (have confirmation email from 3:12 am) and was told that they would ship on 9/24. I was checking the status daily and on 9/24 night I receive an email that the shipment has been delayed to 10/7. I went on the Verizon community forums and it seems like they really screwed up the early orders. There are people who ordered the phones 30 mins later and have already received them while there are others who ordered the phones before me and have a 10/17 shipment date. Really amazing that this technology company can not #1 count their inventory and #2 handle a simple first come first served policy. Anyone else frustrated with Verizon handling of the 5S orders?

I think it's more to do with Apple limiting the quantities to the wireless carriers.

I'm with Verizon and ordered my silver 64gb 5s at 12:03am on the 20th... it shipped from China on the 23rd and I received it today. 6 days isn't too shabby.

I ordered from the Apple store though.

Why did they put a shipment date of 9/24 earlier? Did Apple renege on the promised quantities to the carriers? And why wait until 9/24 night to tell me that they do not have my phones and I need to wait for another 2 weeks... I am sure they knew days ahead that they had screwed up...
