I ordered the 5s online at 3:05am and got a confirmation email with ship date of 9/24. I called the verizon rep who first confirmed that it would be shipped on the 24th but then she changed the date to 10/28 now that is a huge difference. I know the gold iphone is backordered but if that's the case they should send out an email informing ppl of the new ship date.
The same thing happened to me. I placed my order this morning around 2:04 a.m. CST. Received an e-mail at 3:30 a.m. stating that my iPhone 5s would ship 9/24. Then I checked my order status at 2:30 pm. and it is saying 10/07.
