I called my local AT&T Store last night just for kicks, since I already have my Golden 64 GB iPhone 6 Plus which I earned on launch day by waking up early and arriving at 4:30 AM to be third in line and get one of thirteen that my local store ended up having.

They had ZERO. The had not received ANY since launch day. And they really don't expect to anytime soon either. She quoted the current 45 day back order and said they may get a couple here and there, but they don't know for sure, and really won't until they open the shipments they get from Apple.

I was debating trying retail, I gave up and ordered. I have an estimated delivery date of Oct 24-31. I'll be curious to see if you can find one before I get my delivery.

How does 7-10 business day delivery from today equal October 15 and after? That's what Apple is saying to me. That's 13 business days minimum.

I do have to say, I'm rather humored by those people that come here whining about not being able to get a phone on launch day, or even in the first week .

I thank you for keeping me smiling!!

So I returned my 6 today in the hopes of finding a 6 plus. Found one at the 5th Ave store in New York City which is just under 4 hrs from me. Waited a little too long to pull the trigger with getting the family decided on a road trip. Here's to hoping that hunting will be a bit better tomorrow.

What carrier? And are you 4 hours north or south of nyc? Philly and Ardmore apple stores both have 6+'s in stock in silver.

Verizon and I'm south of NY in DE. Not seeing any for Verizon or AT&T for that matter. No worries I'll find one this week.

Well I don't know if you're a Costco member but I was just in there and they had plenty of 6+ stock at the Verizon booth. He was talking to a customer about how they think people didn't think about going to Costco cause they had 2 people waiting on launch day and didn't even run out that day.

You guys want to here something terrible that for the life of me can't figure out? Target has a huge inventory of both regular iPhone 6s and plus models so I started looking into it and eventually called target the guy said yeah we have plus models I said sweet hold one for me I'll be right over so he held one and I got done there only to find out they won't let you upgrade through next? I was just SMH ..... I asked the guy your kidding me right? Something about target had a lot of computer glitches and issues with people doing next so they stopped it and he told me they would be getting it back soon just not right now. This probably explains why target has so much stock!!! I think the guy said they had over 15 plus models to choose from and tons of iPhone 6. Crazy retarded I was so mad thats just dumb! Best buy, radio shack, apple etc offer upgrades through next why not target!?? So frustrating.

My daughter had a 4S until this past Thursday when her 6 came in. I could never see anything on her phone when she would have me look at something. She is so happy that I can now read what she is showing me. We are keeping her 4S for a spare and hoping we never need to use it, lol.
