I ordered mine on 10/01 but after reading all reviews in California we do not have 4 GLTE and will not get it till 2014 I decided to pay a bit more per month and switch over to Verizon on 10/01 I will get my phone on 10/10 with a full working 4GLTE NETWORK....
I ORDERED MY IPHONE 5 16GB BLACK ON SEPTEMBER 29TH AT 11:55 P.M. I WAS TOLD 3 WEEKS WELL: I RECIEVED MY TRACKING NUMBER IW ILL BE RECIEVING PHONE ON 10/8/12 NEXT DAY AIR... FINALLY
I ordered two 16GB black on 10/10/12 around 7-8am. I recieved my tracking information yesterday and ETA is Tuesday or Wednesday (10/9/12-10/1/12). I'm really surprised they are already shipping because it said ships in up to 3 weeks. I'm really shocked at the amount of people who still haven't got their phones and they were ordered earlier than me. I hope it all works out.
I ordered a white 16gb version on 10/1 and I got a tracking number saying it will be delivered today. I'm in the Tampa Bay area.
I ordered two 16gb (one white and one black) on Sept 22 at a Sprint store (Nextel) and until now I have not heard from them. I called a few times and I was told that only when my credit card is being charged would I know that the phones are being shipped. I was also told that some people who ordered later than me have received their phones already. Apparently they are not being shipped according to the order date..............The wait and the lack of information is getting a little ridiculous.
To Joyce. I ordered straight from sprint customer care. The problem with a lot of sprint stores is that they are independently owned and operated. And they just put your name on a list. I was told by a sprint store manager that they call people as phones come in since they order from a differen manufacture and not apple. Since I ordered mine thru sprint customer care they charged my card that same night and was told 3 weeks. I ordered on 9/29/12 n recieved shipping info on 10/5/12 recieved 10/8/12......Another thing. I put my name on the list at very spiny store in my daily commute which is 9 stores I was told I will get a phone call when one was available. Until this day 10/22/12 no phone call.
I ordered one 16gb black while online on 13-Oct and was in the 3-week wait group. Per a suggestion from an earlier post on this message board, I registered with UPS My Choice and that was how I was notified via email (last night) that my device will be delivered today, 22-Oct.
Though there now is a UPS tracking number next to the device description on the Sprint Order Status page... I still have not been notified directly from Sprint that the device shipped, something Sprint customer care representatives repeatedly stated would be the case.
I just had an online chat with customer care and was told that my two phones have just been shipped and I should be hearing from the store in 3 to 5 days. I was told to call sprint order support if I wish to get a tracking number but the number will not be effective until 24 hours later. I am just glad that the wait is almost over and my son would be happy with his first cell phone.
I ordered mine on Oct 23rd, and receiving it today 10/30 via USPS Overnight shipping.
