    We live in such a caffeinated society that people just have to have the thing now and are willing to go through all kinds of obstacles just to have it in their hands at the first moment they possibly can. I don't know why people don't show more patience when it comes to these things.
    I went to my local Apple Store this morning and the kids are PISSED because they don't have a single 7 Plus in stock, it's a phone, it isn't that serious. I will wait for mine on 5 Oct and enjoy the photos of those who already have it

    If you really want a laugh, visit the Verizon community forums. Everyone is freaking out over there about not having their phone. While I can say that I am looking forward to getting my phone today, if it would have had to wait until the 23rd like I was quoted, today just would have been another day

    Yeah. time to wait. I don't know if i should try to do the apple inventory update. Figure I can get it sooner then ordering it now from apple. People are freaking out at the verizon store by my gym. I walk out and a customer is yelling at the manager that he could not get a gold plus today. People need to calm down, it sucks not to get one the release day, but it is what it is.

    I never understood why people yell at managers when something is beyond their control. Saw a lady yell at a manager because her wait was too long at Verizon. I came in ahead of her and was waiting longer than she was and I had my two year old with me. The store was absolutely packed. (This was a few months ago)

    Yelling at managers and salespeople is as ineffective as trying to talk on a banana. But I do feel that Apple is responsible for this. If they had enough devices about half of the hysteria would be eliminated.

    Or wait a month and then find in a store. I really never got the point of standing in line. Different strokes for different folks as they say.
    Feel the same way, but its fun reading the forums about people complaining about it......

    Excellent point! It reminds me of people who stand in horribly long lines for a funnel cake on a miserably hot and humid summer day!

    I got the iphone 7, not the 7 plus but the disappointment from some people is actually funny ( and ridiculous ), just search on YouTube " iphone 7 upgrade disaster " and there is a guy who made a video and his face is like he lost family members and the world is about to come to an end.... hilarious

    I went to try and trade my Note 7 loaner phone this morning and got denied. They also didn't have any Pluses, but the customer service rep who helped me, and helps me frequently around launch time, and I had a blast talking about the phone and talking to other customers getting the iPhone 7. I don't get why people can't have fun with it even if it didn't go their way.

    Going home to the Note 7 next Wednesday. It's been a nice interlude in the Apple world.

    As every one said it's just a phone. I will have mine soon enough somewhere around 9/28. What I find amusing it the people on eBay willing to pay crazy amounts of money for these phones especially the jet black. Even some selling their preorder. I'm almost tempted to leave my jet black sealed when I get it, post it on eBay make a profit and buy it in November when the demand is low. just remember the words from the movie Field of Dreams. If you want one, it will come

    Not going to happen. I spoke with a manager at a corp store and he said the entire SE region (MD to FL) will have not ONE + model. He said people are going to be pissed but this is an Apple issue not a Verizon issue. Nothing new to see here, move on.
    I don't understand how you can't have any in store come launch day. Apple really dropped the ball this year.

    I was going to get the Note 7 when my Note 4 was up for renewal. The decided to try an Apple for the first time ever. I'm still out on which one I prefer.

    However, you did hear that there is a recall on the note 7? Right?

    True.. this seems to be the most constrained launch in awhile... which is disappointing. Even more disappointing if it was the plan all along

    Yes. I'm aware. I got a 6S Plus as a loaner phone, and tried to swap it thinking I had 14 days for the iPhone 7 today and got told to take a hike, but come back for a Note 7 on the 21st, which tickled me pink.
