Has anyone had a Iphone 5S Gold delivered yet?

I think that there are a couple of factors here. Firstly it seems that Apple restricted the number of gold iPhones and stock of the 64gb version is likely to have the smallest supply.

The indication of stock on the tracker is not reliable as I ordered the silver 64gb version at 7.40 on Friday and saw my order go from in stock to forecast 18th October to 1st November and by Monday I picked up my iPhone from the store.

You will probably find that your order will suddenly go from nowhere to delivered and it seems to be Vodafone's odd way of exceeding your expectations in the end.

Hopefully you get your phone very soon

As above the gold iPhones are in short supply because apple didn't make enough of them.

I ordered mine lunchtime on Friday (space grey 64gb) and collected it on Monday also. Sadly the dates on the tracker do not accurately represent the actual expected delivery dates, but sadly you might be in for a wait based on the fact you ordered the gold one.

Might be best speaking to 191 to see if they can shed any light on the matter

I think the estimated order dates 18th-1st. Are VF being ultra cautious, and I think they will be delivered long before this date.
Seems the longest waits are indeed for the gold

Ordered at 7:30 on 20/09. Delivered to Vodafone store for pick up on 25/09.

191 probably won't be able to say much as they won't be able to see where you are in the queue, or when Apple will next deliver stock.

has everyone got a confirmation email and tracker number, I also ordered on Friday and haven't had either yet? Other than the automated delivery text that was wrong!

I never had a confirmation email, just an order number ( I orderded via the phone).
I didn't get a tracker number until I received a text message advising me my phone was out of stock :-(
How did you order your phone!?

I ordered a 32gb Silver on Monday at about 7am.

Vodafones systems suggested delivery between 8th and 23rd of October due to back order. Yesterday at 6pm I got a text to say its with courier and it will now be delivered by 12:15 today!

The text and email gave me tracking numbers and I can even track the driver, know what number drop I am and what number he is on.

Really impressed in the delivery timeframe considering the demand and back order situation - Even Apple are quoting October on their site and not being any more specific than that.

Based on my experience I think Vodafone are doing their best to set an realistic expectation and working very hard to over achieve on it.

My driver is 10 drops from me now so won't be long

Thanks Vodafone.

I have been through a few iphone releases with Vodafone and what is very clear is that those that order on day of launch/pre-orders tend to get the worst deal because the systems generally dont cope very well with the quantity of orders received.

 

So far for this launch i have seen orders with incrorrect delivery estimates (mine included) trackers not working and orders going missing.

 

People that have ordered once the dust has settled get a smooth and efficient experience, albeit those that are ordering the gold iphone are just out of luck because of the fact apple havent made enough and are struggling to catch up.

Ordered mine 4 days ago and received the usual "Out of Stock" expected delivery was Mid Oct to Nov.  To my surprise received it yesterday!!

It generally seems that anyone who ordered Friday morning has received their gold phone but Friday afternoon onwards seem to be still waiting. Reports suggest more stock will arrive today/Friday so hopefully those still waiting will get deliveries early next week. Mid October - 1 November is a very worst case estimate and not to be expected unless ordering now

I ordered my iPhone 5s Gold 16GB @ 8:30am on the 20th and have recieved two emails stating its out of stock and they will be in contact within 5 days. Don't think everyone who ordered morning has got them.
