    I settled on 64gb versus the 128 I wanted. Was up at 2:50 ready and waiting. Apple sucked bad on this one

    For me on the East Coast in Florida it took 40 minutes but finally the Apple store App on my iPhone 5S let me order an iPhone 6+64 GB gold with September 19 delivery. That was the size and color I desired

    AT&T was not shipping these for 2 to 3 weeks only the 128 GB iPhone 6+ was available for September 19

    I was extremely disappointed once again with Apple and their inability to handle the traffic on their website

    I will never understand with all of their technology genius and high expectations why this occurs

    I may just be ignorant and naïve to have significant a problem this is with no easy fix

    Nope. I opted for a later delivery date to get exactly what I wanted. 6+ 128 GB Space Gray. My phones last forever (knock on wood) so I wanted to make sure it's perfect.

    Totally disappointed with how last night went. I tried for an hour to get through and finally went to bed. I went to Best Buy in the morning to preorder and they said they can't preorder the 6+ only the 6. So I ordered the phone I wanted but now have to wait 3 weeks. Totally pissed. I can't even go to the Apple Store and camp out because I have a job interview the 19th. I guess it wasn't meant to be. This will be the first time I will not have the phone on launch and I have owned every iPhone.

    I got through on the AT&T website since I couldn't get the Apple Store app to let me add the phone to the cart. I was able to order 2 white/silver 64 GB iPhone 6 with confirmation email with a delivery of 9/19.

    I was actually surprised at the problems last night. I preordered the 5 2 years ago on the Apple Store app on my iPad and I was done 10 minutes after preorders started. Last night it took 45 minutes for the first order and another 20 minutes for the second order and that was through the AT&T website. I don't understand how they don't prepare for the rush and craziness that ensues. I know the bad publicity from last night won't hurt their sales, but it was annoying as heck.

    Took slightly less than 1-hour but finally made it through the app store with the one I wanted...6+, 128gb, space gray, Verizon; 9/19. Rec'd an immediate email confirmation showing time of order, 3:10am.

    It took me about 15 minutes of trying to finally get my order to go through on the Apple Store App. I did get the iPhone 6 Plus 64 GB Space Gray I wanted. I agree with the posts here that the pre-order rollout was really bad. I too can't understand how Apple can time and again not be prepared for such high demand especially when they expected the 'mother-of-all upgrades'. I feel for those who couldn't place their orders or get them on the delivery date.

    Once the store refreshed on my phone. I started the order process. But then it would not let me continue once I selected 6+ gold 128GB and upgrade this iPhone. The continue button on the top right would not light up. So I had my iPad ready to go as well. Within a matter of minutes my order was complete. It was about 12:24am PST. And I was back in bed. My pebble alerted me, the confirmation email was delivered.

    I so was not able to settle last year at all. I actually left the store with a space gray ordered the gold on my 2nd line and then before the 2 weeks I returned the space gray and the gold came a day later. This year I don't care about the color I did get gold I just want a plus for sure

    I settled in that I managed to get a 128GB silver Plus shipped between Oct 1-6. That's totally fine with me.

    I had originally intended on a 64GB. I'll be hurting next month but whatever. :)

    Same here. It's coming between 1 Oct and 6 Oct. Unfortunately, I have Mindi's address on file temporarily, so it will come to her house. Early this morning, I considered canceling the order and camping out in Utah, but then, in a rare fit of good sense and patience, I thought, "Well, I ordered the one I want, and I can't guarantee getting the same one if I camp out, so I'll just leave it alone. If it's like my brother's iPhone 4, at may actually ship sooner than the stated dates. It's just a phone."

    "It's just a phone." I can't believe I just typed that., :D

    And yes, @chris , the above is a sterling example of copy and paste. :D

    Through my experinece today and AT&T cancelling both my orders I would go with Apple. I had to order again and went through Apple and I received a ship date Oct 1-6th.
