Ok. does it make you nervous that you don't get a tracking number even though they took the money out.

I have an order #. The store isn't even sure how many they are getting day 1. If they have enough, I'll get it day one, otherwise I'll be on the next shipment.

When the iPhone 5 came out I just went into a store about 10 minutes after they opened and got a phone. The store was on the outskirts of town so no early business.

Some people are telling me that pre-buy in no way assures you of having a phone on the first day or even first week. Others are saying that if you pre-pay you will get a phone on first day for sure. Who knows.

I was just told by order support that no one is getting a 6+ on release date. The stores won't even get any.

I just called and talked to the nice guy who help me pre order my gold 128 gb iphone plus in the store. He told me that they haven't received any iphone plus models yet, but they have received the iphone 6. I also asked him if we were going to get our phones from their inventory and he said no. He said the pre orders are coming to the store with our names on them.

I got the same story from my local sprint store. I too, ordered a 128GB PLUS and was told that they hadn't recieved any 6PLUS' at the time I called but that they would get deliveries throughout the day. I'm hearing the 6PLUS is going to be hard to get until the next round of shipments.

I went to the store at 34 st and 7th(new york) ave this morning after pre-ordering the week before with no issue. They then tell me it will be 4-8 weeks and they told everyone that.. Who in their right mind would agree to pre-order a phone to wait 4-8 weeks for it? I tried to cancel my order but since there is no physical device there I cannot.

Been hearing the same thing that the only store in town that has one is the Apple store and they have limited stock.

Ordered a 6 in the Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, Sprint store on the 15th and got it on the 19th. While I was picking up my 6, another fella picked up a 128Gb 6+.

I live in Ga and went into my local Sprint corporate store and pre ordered the iPhone 6 plus, 64 GB in Gold on the 15th in the am and was told 4-6 weeks. Called all the Sprint stores in my area and none of them received any 6 plus on launch day, I even called today and they still didn't get any in. They don't even have a 6 plus on display just the 6! Crazy I say.
