Gonna try the 10pm method tonight to score a iPhone 5 for my Gf. When I check right now there are no stores in a 50 mile radius that have any instock.

I tried it last night and none were available in the 4 Apple stores within a 60 mile radius of my home. I will also try again tonight. Good luck.

I live south of Sacramento and just checked availability and there was nothing available all the way to Monterey to include SF. I will try again at 10 but it doesn't look good.

Got it. I can pick it up, 64 gig black tomorrow in the Apple store closest to where I live. I am stoked. It's interesting I started at 10 and nothing was available but just kept retrying and bingo it popped up available at the Modesto Store. :)

Bummer I had entered everything ahead of time so I didn't have to enter the cc data. Better luck tomorrow.

Save it on your profile, so you just have to select it next time.

This was suggested to me on Wednesday by an Apple Store Specialist. He told me they get phones every night but no guarantee they would be AT&T. The previous night they only received Sprint and Verizon phones.

I can't really do this without cancelling my AT&T order and getting them to reinstate my upgrade which at this point seems like it would be a major hassle. Even then there is no guarantee I'd get a phone using the 10 PM method.

Got an AT&T phone last Friday night by ordering online at 10 pm
I wanted and got a 64G white phone.
I've heard that 64G phones are more readily available because of the higher cost. So it may be more difficult to secure a 16G or 32G phone.

If you go on line at 10pm and it initially shows nothing available go back one step and then try again for availability. At 10 pm last bight I hit the check availability and there was absolutely nothing in a dozen or more locations from Sacramento CA to Monterey CA, over 150 miles apart. I immediately went back one step reentered the zip code and hit the check availability again. I just couldn't accept the fact that none of these stores had anything. On the 3rd try at approximately 10:06 the store closest to my location indicated availability. I picked up my 64gig this am. I agree with brdmsd that the 16 and 32 gigs will be more difficult to find. Good luck.
