    Hit up the Apple store online at 10 pm tonight and you'll see what's in stock and for pickup tomorrow at the Apple store. My daughter got hers there that way last week.

    Try your local carrier store, Target, Bestbuy, and Walmart as well . You might get lucky.

    .... Good luck with that....

    I've been trying the past three nights, at exactly 10 pm, and all 15 stores within driving distance (I'm in Long Island) have no availability each night.

    Very frustrating.

    Been Thinking about this with the order wait times we should start a thread where people could
    report being able to actually get a phone on the 10pm order or when there seeing stock available & where
    Might give us late to the game people some useful info
    Just a thought

    Apple isn't selling off contract iPhone 5's here in the US on their online website or via the app after 10pm. If you need to pay full retail for it you are going to have to keep trying the local stores in your are.

    Have not seen any option to pay full retail with the app or online. It always checks your upgrade status first and refers me to my carrier if not eligible to upgrade. At least here in the US....

    Thats not my experience I am in the USA & the apple website checked my verizon contract status & only allows me to purchase full retail since I am not elegible for upgrade
    then I have the option to order from apple or pickup at store if you click pickup at store it gives you a window to search apple stores in your area, shows weather they have inventory & then you can pick which store to pick up from. If you choose pickup you have 24hrs to do so or the pickup is canceled & your not charged.

    I dont know what carrier your with or if a different carrier handles this differently but thats my experience

    Had numerous conversations with Apple store employees & they all recommend using the web rather than calling the store every day

    ^ I am with AT&T and have checked the app and online store a few times and each time this is the message that I get. This stinks because next year I'll have to go through AT&T and not Apple to get the new iPhone.

    Dont know but I suspect you are somehow picking upgrade instead of replace phone
    I tried selecting upgrade in the online process & got the same result as you
    Again I am on verizon not AT&T
    Try calling an Apple store & telling them what is going on, this shouldnt be giving you this
    result if you chose replace phone
    Best Buy, Radioshack, Target etc are all selling AT&T phones full retail doesnt make sense Apple wouldnt

    It does if they have any in stock. Obviously they don't.

    I feel your pain. I am in Southern CA and have been trying every night at 10pm to find a store with a black Verizon 16 or 32, however have had complete zero luck. I am going to keep trying, however it sure does not seem to be looking good.

    I passed the last three nights trying to buy but nothing, I went to best buy and apple store at 5th avenue and nothing too.
    And my last attempt was to go to Virizon store and Radioshack and nothing.
    All store are the same they show available on stock but nothing on store.

    Try the apple store in Union Square. Didn't buy it from them this year, but last year they seemed to have pretty good supply on second day after launch.

    They seemed to have a better supply of iPhone 4S's last year than the 5's this year. I guess it's because the demand for the iPhone 5 is much higher than the 4S was last year.
