    Default Re: Waiting in line on launch day? What time?

    Here is the quote if you want to avoid the link.... I read it last night.

    "We couldnt be happier with the initial response to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and we are looking forward to beginning sales through our retail stores and partners around the world. Beginning Friday, limited quantities of iPhone 7 in silver, gold, rose gold, and black will be available for walk-in customers at Apple retail stores. During the online pre-order period, initial quantities of iPhone 7 Plus in all finishes and iPhone 7 in jet black sold out and will not be available for walk-in customers. Availability at partner locations for all finishes may vary and we recommend checking directly with them.

    Customers can continue to order all models in all colors on apple.com. We sincerely appreciate our customers patience as we work hard to get the new iPhone into the hands of everyone who wants one as quickly as possible."

    Wishing everyone that did not get a pre-order delivery the best of luck. Trust me, I totally feel your pain and disappointment. My biggest complaint this year, was not getting the size I wanted and maybe having to stay late at work tomorrow for delivery. Nothing compared with dreams dashed of being able to get the phone tomorrow at all. My sincere sympathy.

    I am doing the same thing. Here to hoping. If not I will either watch the apple website for inventory updates next week or order it and wait two weeks.

    You know... Apple totally deserves to get trolled like this.
    If enough people were to do that, it would probably cause enough headaches for them to rethink their marketing hysteria plan.

    I wish we had an Apple Store. All we have are a corporate Verizon, a Best Buy, and a ton of authorized retailers and I'm pretty sure BB and the corporate store will get stock first. Hopefully they restock within the next week as my 14 day return on my 6S+ will be up

    They require you to pay this year to reserve.

    This trolling would never work considering I don't think people would want to charge a phone to their CC to troll Apple. As my picture shows above for my reservation, I had to make full payment to reserve.

    Yup. Last year you could reserve with your Apple ID and password. Then pay in store. I reserved 2 for in store pick up tomorrow. I had to make full payment to get the reservation. It's just like a typical online order where you get web order number but tennis time you pick your pickup time. Just on the pic I showed about, edited out my order number.

    I bet too many people didn't pick them up last year causing them to make you pay this time.

    Last year I got my nearest  store around 10 pm I wasn't intending to camp out but the line wasn't too long so I decided why not. Even though the line didn't seem so long the guy in front of me had 10 people with him all with instructions 2 buy rose gold phones. Needless to say the next morning after waiting nearly 12 hours I left that day without the phone I wanted...128gb rose gold plus. The next day I woke up when they opened the inventory up at 8 AM online and reserved a phone for same day pick up. Lesson learned this year I preordered. I used to enjoy hanging in the line but not this year.

    I thought about waiting in line at one of the stores here, but none of them will have the 7 Plus Jet Black available.

    They're warning people not to wait in line. There will be no 7 Plus or Jet Black phones available. Any they get are spoken for.

    Good luck to everyone camping out. I'd be right there with you if I thought there was a chance to grab a plus model.

    I'm patiently waiting for 3 more hours to see if this art store has any pluses! I heard that some carrier stores may have limited supply....

    I have a reservation to pick up one at 8 am and another at noon. I'm REALLY hoping they'll let me pick up both at 8 am! I'm not planning to have them set them up for me, so it shouldn't cause a problem...
