    It's definitely not local time if your on the east coast apple said it goes by the time on the west coast I called because I was trying and it wouldn't allow me to select personal pick up as an option . The rep said it has to be 10pm on the west coast I waited till 1am and voila it worked and I had an i5 the next day.

    I went this route last night.. took too long deciding on accessories and ended up "out of stock" by the time I got to check out.. grr.. but luckily I just went from the 16 to the 32 (part of my hemming and hawing) and walah! So I'm awaiting a pick up notice for this morning. Much better than the October guessing game I was on... (imcomplete mailing address and very busy at work to stay home). YAY!

    Nope..I have 2 in northern dfw and the 32gb's are not available. I preordered with radio shack, but they haven't gotten theirs yet.

    Well i just had a bonus...my Pre order with radio shack was going nowhere. My wife was at the dumpy AT&T store in a strip mall and they just got their 5's in and had a 32 black unspoken for. She had them hold it for me and its mine.
    1)it's lightning fast
    2)I have a very slight rattle
    3)I'm not hitting the spacebar well in portrait when typing. New muscle memory
    Love it though

    I have had zero luck... I am in Southern CA and have tried four different counties every night at 10pm for about the last week and all locations are showing as not available. I tried the Radio Shack route and got one manager to do a district inventory search - coming up with nothing as well. I am kind of surprised that it is this difficult. Hoping to find a Verizon Black 16GB or 32GB....

    I went on just before 10pm my local time (central) and put the phone I wanted in my cart. At 10pm I chose to pick up at the store and it showed available. Picked it up on Wednesday!! Worked like a charm.

    Per Apple.com it is local time...here is the scripting directly from Apple..

    "For next day pick-up in an Apple Retail Store, buy an iPhone 5 online between 10 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. local time. Quantities are limited and availability can change quickly - an iPhone is only reserved for you when checkout is completed."

    Good luck to everyone!!!

    I did the "pick up at store" option last night at about 10:15PM and found two stores that had the black iPhone 32GB for Verizon available. The process went smoothly, and I was literally less than 5 minutes in a packed apple store while they went to grab my phone and activate. I definitely recommend it, called every Verizon store in Miami looking for an iPhone and no one had it. Glad I was able to get it :-)

    I had everything set up before 10pm. I had Lenox saved. Once 10pm hit. I saw it was available at Lenox. And also wanted to see if perimeter had one. And they didn't. I didn't wanna waste time trying Mall of GA or North point. So I just went back to Lenox and checked out. So I don't know if others had it. Sorry.

    I was successful. I live in New Jersey, USA. I initially put in a 64GB white, no inventory. I changed it to black, and every store in my area had one. Picked up at 10:05 the next morning, it went very smoothly. Apple even upgraded me several days earlier than VZW would let me--thank you, Apple.

    Tried the 10pm apple ordering and it showed unavailable. Then I tried the Radio Shack route and was told If I wanted to switch to Sprint, they had a huge shipment come in. No thanks. Happy with AT&T. Guess I'll just wait. Patience is not one of my virtues.

    If I order for store pick-up, can I go to the store any time I want? Will they hold it for me until I come, or do I need to be at the store by 10am?

    The 22:00 EST seems to work fine here. I tried it yesterday, and an iPhone 5 16GB white, would have been available for me to pick up today if I'd wanted it...

    I believe you can pick it up whenever, since you have actually paid for it.

    If I'm not mistaken I think you have two weeks to pick it up then they cancel your order and restock it.

    From what I know it's 10pm in your time zone.
    I ordered mine at 10pm Eastern time on October 4 and picked it up October 5 after 4pm.
    Also if you order online to pick it up you can't pick it up whenever, you have to pick it up in 24hours,
    If you don't your order gets cancel and it's put back to sale for the next night online sales.

    I did. But buying from apple... Even tho I didn't turn the phone on until after I talked to Verizon. It gets activated. (I bought it on my wife's line) so now I have to wait 24hrs for the SIM card to clear.

    You have to wait until you get an email saying your order is ready for pick up. Then I think you have 24hrs to pick it up.

    any way to do this and just buy it at full retail instead of entering my carrier information?
