    I order mine the gold one unlocked version at 03.04 am and I got 1-3 shipping and 30-1 delivery. Can somebody confirm if I can't use the unlocked version with my att gophone nano SIM card ? Because with the chat in aple store they confused me that I have to call first t-mobile since the phone is coming with a preinstall a nano t-mobile SIM card.

    Ordered a gray 32GB at 3:01am ET with 9/30-10/2 delivery date. I called an AT&T Corp store close to my work and they said they have all gray in stock. Cancelled my online order and got in line for 30 mins and I now have one in my hands.

    Finished my order at 3:03am EST. 1-3 days for a gold 64gb. About 5 minutes later that changed to 7-10 days.

    There was a bit of a game being played on us for sure. Apple knew
    this move to the iPhone 5 C was very risky. Naturally they padded the stores with many more 5C and artificially slowed production on the 5S, allowed no pre-ordering of 5S, making the 5S scarce so that more people would buy the 5C artificially making it look like the 5C was a good plan, thus driving up the stock for Apple. The gamble is not going to work out on their part. And we all feel a little "taken". The moment they said no preorder for the 5S I knew the game they were playing. And we're seeing it play out today. Some 23-year-old Yale graduate in marketing that they hired gave them this idea and we have to suffer through their "experiment".
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    Nono, I was talking about buying an unlocked iPhone 5s. It is labeled as "contract free, T-Mobile," but the Customer Service Rep said that it can be used on AT&T without issues.

    I ordered at 3:03am EST and got the gold 64gb but my ship time was 7-10 so that means about 3 weeks to receive it.
    There were no gold in stores near me... seemed like the few stores that had phones at all, were the 16gb grey model.

    So how is that space grey? From the pics it looks very similar to my black iPhone 5
