    Has anyone checked with Sprint? I ordered online the 5s 32gb Space Gray on Friday and shipping was only 2-5 business days. They provided a tracking number and it's already on its way; should be here Tuesday.

    Wow, you really love making up facts, don't you? I wonder, do you actually believe them yourself, or do you know your spouting made up BS?

    Did you not read the part where they said they sold out SLOWER than last year?

    Man, I'm not even gonna call you anything because the mods here are so sensitive. Restricting the stock? Did you not read that the phones were launched in more countries than the past??

    Apple is a multi-billion dollar company. They knew ahead of time how many stores sell iPhones and how many iPhones each store would need for a "proper" stock. Yet, they still released the iphone with stores not getting all colors, and some stores not getting any at all. Now if Apple didn't have enough stock, they should have pushed back the release date, but they didn't, like they do with every iPhone release. That just tells me there either stupid, which I doubt, or they did it on purpose. Since we can pretty much rule out Apples stupidity, it is safe to assume there also not going to make themselves look like idiots but running out of stock on there flagship device. Its a marketing scam, Apple is the talk of the world, and there not paying a dime for it. Free advertising, demand is nice and high, and as soon as excitement and talk dies down, there will all of a sudden be plenty of stock in all model iPhones, and yet again, Apple will be the talk of the world with another round of free advertisement. This isn't the first time Apple has pulled this crap

    is anyone else not too happy about the October 1st date for the 5S on smaller carriers when people (like myself) are still waiting for the 4 major carriers to at least give us a date when we could expect our phones, never mind the actual phones

    I got my 64 GB 5S on Tuesday, and a friend of mine got his 16GB 5S on Monday. I guess it all depends when you ordered it. The 5S is pretty much sold out, and is back ordered online. People will just need to be patient.

    I ordered mine through my carrier on release day, my point is if Apple is going to short hand major carriers, with millions of customers, they shouldn't be releasing to small "mom and pop" carriers, with thousands (if that) of customers, while major carriers still cant even give a release date. that reflects poorly on Apple and the carriers. its not about patience, I would wait until December, as long as I was giving an actual date. also, don't take this the wrong way, but its easy to tell someone to be patient when you have your phone, and not pay and wait for one with no date in sight

    Ok, I see what you're saying now. They are probably trying to make them available to as many people as possible. But you're right, as "unfair" as it may be to the little guys, their are many millions more (especially China Mobile's 700+ Million Subscribers) that are waiting as well. Sometimes it's better to be in a big group.

    im with one of the major carriers, but as unfair as it may be to the little guys, Apple should take care of the major carriers first, then everyone else second. Apple is too busy trying to milk every dollar they can, but in turn there pissing a lot of people off. But hey, what do they care, I bet tim cook is rocking his gold 64gb 5s with no worries. he's probably had it since march. its probably not even 64gb, its probably 128gb
