    Default What's gonna be faster?

    Hello folks!
    What will land me an ip5s faster, ordering from Apple.com or wait and watching my closest apple store (Omaha) and going to pick it up. The Omaha Apple store is 100 miles away but that's not a huge prob. I'll do it in the name of OCD. . Your opinion?

    Depends on the supply chains.

    Up in Canada, because they aren't great for the first bit, I did the wait in line thing.

    I'd guess for getting -any- iPhone 5s, that's still faster. If you want a particular colour and storage size, you may be best served by putting in an order online...

    (I ended up buying one for full price from Best Buy and then paying an unlock fee to my carrier.)

    If it's 100 miles away, I sure hope you'll checkout online and pick it up in store. Lol! From the looks of things, they're shipping them out sooner than they are shipping them to the stores. I've been checking all day everyday for the availability and it's not happening.

    I used this page to watch for availability: http://iphone-check.herokuapp.com/?z...rovider=sprint

    When I saw a nearby store had some in stock on Thursday, I drove to the store and bought one. Since you are 100 miles away, I suggest you check availability with that page and then order online with in-store pickup as soon as you see it become available.

    Yeah well it's damn luck for gold 5s at this point. Iam frustrated as hell. Apple can't supply demands so why even launch it.
