iPhone 5 Shipment Dates Slip Once Again to 3-4 Weeks
Continued demand for Apple’s new iPhone 5 has caused shipping times to slip to 3-4 weeks from the Apple Online Store along with partner carriers and resellers seeing similar delays. After a large number of pre-orders filled up quickly and ended up eating away at Apple’s first batch of iPhone 5 units last Friday, demand for the new device remains strong as the company is continuing to push back shipping times as more orders continue to pile in.
Apple just recently announced that the iPhone 5 saw over two million pre-orders in its first 24 hours of availability, while AT&T posted record numbers but failed to offer specifics. The pre-orders as many of you already know opened up last Friday at midnight Pacific time with such high interested that the Apple Online Store ended up burning through its stock in an hour. The company issued a statement later that day saying the following; “Pre-orders for iPhone 5 have been incredible. We’ve been completely blown away by the customer response.”
Apple’s U.S. partner carriers such as AT&T and Verizon also show stockouts with both telecoms quoting delivery dates in two to three weeks for all iPhone 5 models. Even shipment times for Sprint, the last of the “big three” U.S. wireless carriers are beginning to sell out of its initial allotment, with the time slipping as well. Meanwhile, previously placed orders are already in transit to select customers with the iPhone 5 officially launching in nine additional countries on Friday as part of the fastest product rollout in Apple history as well.

I haven't got mine but did you see the article the other day? Someone had got their shipment email.. I'm glad I am not the only one still waiting for mine, I got a iPhone 5 reservation number before 1 am and completed the order the following morning around 6 am and it says delivery is 9/21 but still says preparing for shipment when I check my order number at the Apple website.. Hope I get something today or else I'll really start to feel sadiPhone Firmware - 4.1

I have the standard shipping. I wonder if I will get it by the 21st?
& you should always order from apple.com, way more reliable.

Anyone else that ordered on ATT still has pending?

I had ordered 3 phones on the 14th evening by calling AT&T. And for one of them now it says "Shipped". But no tracking number can be found. Maybe it will come here tomorrow!!
I tried the track by ref on ups, but could not find anything.
