It used to be 7 days-plus, and has now been replaced with "3-5 days", that also goes for orders through AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon, no matter the capacity. Individual carriers make it more difficult to gauge demand, with Verizon still showing a delay only on the white 32GB iPhone.

No one knows how many iPhone 4S' Apple shipped since it's mid-October debut, but analysts are targeting their estimates in the 30 million ball park. Very nice indeed.
