    I called my local AT&T, and asked them if they had any iPhone 6's in. This is after I'd already checked the MyAT&T app (it shows which shops have availability).
    To my surprise, they had stock of the 16GB Grey; exactly what I wanted.

    I took a stroll, well, at least to the door of the shop, and bought one. Since around 20:00 or so, I've been waiting for the latest iTunes update to download. It is only 120.91MB, but oddly it is taking forever.

    Anyway, now that I have my iPhone 6, and setting it as new, what do you do typically first?

    PS: this isn't my first rodeo, I'm merely curious what others do ;)

    I set it up as a new phone. After, I bring back all my phone settings, connect to iCloud and download all my contacts, apps, and photos. Also get any apps that I want again.

    FTFY. There is a ton of room for misunderstanding on this topic, so I always avoid using the word restore unless I actually mean restore. A lot of people don't realize you can sync iCloud data without actually applying/using/restoring from a backup.

    I edited my original post to clear up any confusion. Hope that helps.
