    My problem was that Apple would not cancel my order even though its been in "Preparing for Shipment" status for 3 days now and the Apple store could not release the phone they reserved for me at first, but after the switcharoo back and forth with Phone numbers I was able to pick up the phone from the store. When the pre-ordered phone arrives in probably another week or so, I will return it to an Apple store for a refund. Its too bad that there is no line of communications between the Apple retail store and their online operation, but thanks to Verizon, problem was solved.

    Will Apple not allow me to purchase a Sprint variety and use on AT&T?

    Thanks.
    From my understanding it depends. Yes, Apple has a model that works across all carriers. So, technically you can buy "Verizon" and put it on "AT&T". However, during initial sales period all Apple sales require activation prior to leaving the store. Thus, to do what you want you'd have to bring the other SIM with you and it would have to be a reservation or walk-in, not a prepay in store pick up. Once the initial sales period is over they have a SIM Free Device that can be purchased and you can walk out unlocked and not activated. This is my understanding.

    I reserved an Sprint 7 Plus which I intended for Verizon use. I reserved it, came and was asked if I was going to use the upgrade program, the carrier's upgrade program, or buying outright. Told her outright. I was charged, walked out, and popped a Verizon sim in it when I got home and it's working. If you're buying outright they pretty much don't care for the most part. But I have read some instances where some employees have been a little more hardasses.

    Exactly, yours was a reservation. That's what I meant. Prior to reservations, there were only pre-orders that were prepaid online and required a selection of upgrade or full retail but you had to choose a carrier and if shipped or picked up in store had to activate.

    We are past that point of "pre-order". Reservations don't require payment until pick up so the option of walking out inactivated is possible now.

    I luckily didn't pick up the Silver 128GB yesterday, and was able to reserve a Black 128GB earlier this morning. My decision now comes down to Black (today) vs Jet Black (continue waiting for deliver: 10/14-10/21). The new store is over 3 hours away from me though, while the first one was under 2 hours away.

    Apple. I'm also curious how accurate the availability checker that Apple provides on their website is.

    I'm glad I decided to check. I ordered my phone through Sprint and it would take another month to get it. Just found one at my local Apple store. Picking it up after work.

    Every time one shows available I get this message. "We’re sorry, but this service is currently unavailable." Is there a reason for this that anyone knows of?

    I have to use a case for my job too. Well. I don't have to. But if I didn't I will end up with a ton of scratches and stuff. Waiting for my case to be delivered tomorrow so I have been completely careless for the week. I don't mind except when I'm at work. I fully plan on removing the phone from the case when I'm not at work though.

    I finally got a verizon 128gb iPhone 7 plus black one reserved for tomorrow. I have been checking every night at 12:02 and it finally showed up. That was probably the fastest I have ever ordered anything. I thought for sure I would get to the confirmation page and it would say it's already gone.

    For those that have done reservations, has anyone been questioned when using, in my case, Verizon payment plan Instead of apples?

    Store here told me they have to hold them until close that day.

    Different stores also manage appts differently. Reserved for pickup 2x, 2 different stores. Both in same big city, to both had lines for pickup.

    One store sorted the line by reservation time, closely managed line, so if person with earlier res arrived after you did, they were put ahead in the line. All told, took about an hour.

    Other store had one line for "anything related to iPhone 7.. several people did not have reservation- techs booked for them as they stood in line. If the phone they wanted was in the house, they were golden. This worked out well for kid in front of me. From arrival to exit. again about an hour.

    Picked up first phone after online order went mia in shipping problems they're having.

    Picked up second today as exchange for first one (color swap). Order arrived in between, so returned that, still in shipping box, at second appointment.

    Happy now with 257GB matte black plus!

    Availability is by state/store/ carrier/ size/ GB/ color. seems very accurate. Used for reserved pickup in two different stores. Both changed from day to day and throughout each day. If they say there's a phone if your desired configuration to reserve, there is.

    I decided to cancel my preorder for the Jet Black 128GB, and will be picking up a Black 128GB later this morning. I'm curious to hear an answer to you question, since I want to use AT&T next to pay for my device.
