Just pre-ordered at AT&T brick and mortar store! They informed me that the iPhone 6+ will not be available on launch day! It's expected to start shipping 3 to 4 weeks from now! No one told me that!

It sucks but I look at it like this....I waited this long. I'm gonna put it out of my mind and just relax and when it gets here I'll enjoy it. I don't think Apple anticipated the demand for a 5.5in phone.

I wasn't real happy about the delay either. I know I'm going to love it when it finally arrives though, and it's completely worth waiting for. I just wish they would have announced the delay ahead of time. I certainly wouldn't have gotten out of bed at 3 AM to order it if I knew there would be a delivery delay.

Even better! That give them a lil more time to workout any bugs that might pop up with the launch phones.

Couldn't you take your chances at an Apple Store next Friday? If they have one, grab it and cancel your pre-order? You could always call your local AT&T store and inquire about cancellation procedures. I cannot imagine it's difficult to cancel an order for phone they won't have for 4 weeks.

Wait. What about the people who have gotten a successful order through and have a deliver by date of 9/19 for the iPhone 6 Plus? Are you saying that those people will not get their 6 Plus on 9/19? SO it was all for nothing!!!
Wait, maybe the rep was joshing ya!

Yeah I guess I could. But I don't have the time or energy for that these days. I'll just wait it out.

I'm not really sure. She sure seemed sincere enough. She said all the REPS were shocked to hear it as well. They didn't know until just before they opened the store.

Guess I feel the same way. It is what it is. However I was more than a little disappointed when she hold me that.

That's jacked up! But you know what, it could be a tactic of some sort. We shall see in a few days if emails go out regarding the status of the 6 Plus orders or we shall see on 9/19.

My friend, she kept changing her mind about the 5.5in but then she just stuck with the decision to get it. I'm also surprised the demand for it.

That's what I'm hoping for. Covering their butts.

What I'm curious about is if some people that it says delivery 19th for, if that may change. I don't believe that ALL people will get it on that said date for them.

It's going to be interesting for sure. I'm going to bet that I receive mine before the 10-31 to 11-11 expected date. I think they're just covering there butts. I could be wrong.
