Finally today around 11 am my local Apple Store had black pluses available in 32, 128 and 256. I was able to reserve one finally. When I checked the site later on in the day, the 128 was still available.

    I'm not sure the rhyme or reason when it comes to stock. As a preorder customer it certainly is frustrating that I could walk in to a store 10 days later and grab one (not that I am complaining, I lucked out) yet my online order was still processing.
    I agree. I pre-ordered on 9/9 and am getting it delivered this week. Meanwhile, I reserved and picked up 7plus, black, 128gb, last Tuesday.

    Most Apple Stores in my area (NYC) have some sort of 7 and 7 Plus stock. When I went online early yesterday morning to see if I could snag a reservation for a Matte Black 7 Plus, I noticed that pretty much every store I selected in NY, NJ, PA, and CT had 7 Pluses. It was mostly 32GB RG or SLV, but there was also plenty of 128GB in RG, SLV, and GLD. I came across my MB in CT, and a JB in Central NJ. So while the stores aren't getting TOO much inventory, it's there. Just have to hunt them down.

    Question: I went on istocknow and there aren't 128 matte black att to be had nationally... I'm sitting on my preorder suppose to arrive 10/6-10/12.
    I see on the istocknow website that it days the Verizon model is unlocked and works on gas. Networks ( att T-Mobile and some international). Is the att model not unlocked? I was under the impression they all were from Apple.

    The AT&T model is unlocked only if paying full retail price or through the iPhone Upgrade program.

    It will work with T-Mobile or Verizon if unlocked but with a caveat. The GSM version has a different modem that is not compatible with CDMA network. it will work in Verizon areas where there is LTE and VOLTE for voice calls but any other areas you would need the Verizon specific version to fall back to their 3g network.

    I couldn't find an AT&T matte black plus anywhere in my area either. However, for whatever reason the 256 GB Verizon 7 Plus is readily available at many stores. I picked one up and am running it on AT&T.

    I am paying in full... But essentially get the Verizon model to have the most flexibility?
    Funny.... I have seen the 256 matte Verizon also.... Fort worth has them now.
    I don't think I need the extra space... But my note 5 is hacking me of text wise... Thanks... Who y'all play Saturday?

    Reserve it from the link that the OP provided. You're probably using the other reservation method in the "Buy Now" page.

    Of course, using that link from op shows the store doesn't have it in stock. Ugh

    Get the Verizon model over the ATT model. It'll have better resale value.

    Just snagged a matte black 128gb 7+ using the OP's IUP link. It's the Verizon model but I am on Tmo and not on any kind of payment or upgrade program. I'm hoping to walk in at my appointment time, pay full price, walk out, and swap SIMs and activate at home.

    Apple Store in Bellevue, WA.

    Is this gonna work the way I want?

    Congrats. Found mine yesterday as well. Seems the 256gb Verizon is the most readily available of the Matte Black Plus. Every Apple store here in Texas has it available right now. I had preordered the 256gb ATT MB Plus but glad I ended up with the Verizon version.

    Yes...they had to manually enter the imei for some reason.... But all went great. I told them my account is with att but there was a 50% chance I would switch to Verizon.... Hedging my bets

    Default Stores getting stock of 7 plus

    Thanks all. I am hoping to not even open the box in the store.

    I stopped in the store this morning and they wouldn't let me redeem my appointment early but they did confirm I'll be able to just buy the phone outright when it's my time.

    I made the right choice in black color. The jet black doesn't appeal to me in person and the display unit is already scratched up.

    So I am enjoying the move back to iOS with the 7+.... But I find that my cell service doesn't work, just on wifi.
    I can att, and they say that Apple took my unlimited plan off when they activated my phone. Att now has to escalate this in order to put my unlimited plan back on.
    I'm not sure what to think.... But I will head to Verizon after 20 years if they jack around. Ugh

    Success. They didn't even open the box in the store. There was no question whatsoever regarding any participation in upgrade programs etc. They checked my name against the reservation list, asked me how I want to pay, fetched the phone, took payment, and sent me on my way.

    When I got home I tossed the Verizon SIM that came in the phone, put my T-Mobile SIM in, and am now restoring my 6s+ backup to my new phone.

    Congrats. I thought only TMobile and ATT were interchangeable.

    T-Mobile and Att models are only interchangeable with GSM. Verizon is interchangeable with CDMA and GSM. Verizon model is actually the best one to to buy.
