    I want to use an upgrade from another line for my line. Should I just get the phone then go home and do the switch with Verizon over the phone?

    It's a bit more complicated because the new phone has LTE and an assigned SIM tied to the phone # being activated on. It may require you to get a new SIM card to switch it to the line you really want it on. I'd call the carrier and tell them what you are thinking and ask what options you have. Otherwise you might end up waiting for a SIM card to be mailed to you. Or visiting your phone store may work to switch it as they can provide a new SIM while you wait. Hope that helps.

    Most Verizon stores don't have nano sims yet. Best advice is to NOT turn on the phone when you receive it. Instead call or go to Verizon to have it switched over. You should be fine that way though.

    When I picked up my phone at Apple the morning following my 10 pm reservation, I took the phone directly over to VZW since I also upgraded on a different line than my own. VZW advised me that Apple needed to give me a nano SIM card. Luckily, both stores were in the same mall so I immediately turned around and went back to Apple who happily went into the back and got me a Verizon nano SIM card without delay. There is no charge for this. So, before u leave Apple, ask them for the nano SIM card prior to going to VZW to switch lines.

    Just a quick check of BestBuy (bestbuy.com) in the Phoenix area (10 stores) shows that 4 stores say they have the 16GB black iPhone5 for Verizon... all other models are not available. Just keep checking around... BestBuy, Target, Walmart, Radio Shack...

    I am losing hope with the 10pm pick up . I been trying for a week or so no luck.

    Am I the only one ? Am I doing something wrong ?

    I leave the item on my cart and check the app from 9:45 to about 10:30

    I am now on Verizon. I got a 32GB in white from RadioShack. They tend to get a couple in at a time. Good luck!

    You're not the only one. Ive been trying since you could reserve them. Haven't found a single one yet. Radio shack had a 64gb in white. It they had black, I would have been all over it. I heard from best buy, radio shack and Verizon that they won't get any more in until 11/2. Very disappointed. Been to all phone stores in a 30 mile radius of my home.

    I finally gave up and had Radio Shack put me on the list and I'll just wait until they get it. Ive had my 4S for a year. What's another 3 weeks.

    You probably have tried this too but have you checked Sam's Club?? Also if you have friends or family in another state you can have them see and always send it to you. At this point you might as well just order it and wait the few weeks, it will probably be the same wait time in another few weeks so it will just be postponed longer. I was quoted a week ship time, I ordered it t like 10:30pm, it shipped the next day (yesterday) I am currently waiting for UPS to show up today. I do have Sprint but I'm just saying it might ship sooner and at least you'll be on the list lol. Good luck!

    Leaving the item in your cart before its time to reserved might be the problem.
    What you want do is once 9:59 hits head to the page when it's 10pm fill in the info and then
    see what stores have them in stock.

    I live in NYC and I was able to reserved two iPhones in the same week, one on Weds for a Thursday pick up
    And one reserved Thursday for a Friday pick up. Both popular apple stores as well fith avenue apple store
    and the grand central one. So I don't think is all about luck you just need make sure you start it at 10pm exactly
    and have fast fingers to fill out the info because they do go out of stock in like 5-8mins.

    Got it! Got the confirmation, just waiting for the pickup notification!

    Gonna be a crappy taxi ride (being in college without my car sucks!), but it will definitely be worth it!

    When we reserved a phone after 10pm, we used my husbands line. But when he got to the apple store he explained to them that he wanted it for my line and my upgrade. It wasn't an issue.

    I forgot to try it until 1020 and they only had a 64gb available. So looks like I'm trying again tomorrow.

    At least they had that. I tried today at 9:58PM, had the one I wanted in my cart, and by the time I entered my billing info... gone!

    Might try a Radioshack tomorrow that's near the Apple Store.

    I was able to get one tonight in the New Orleans area.... At first tried to get a 16gb Black AT&T.... But none where there... So I took a shot and changed over to the white model and they had some...

    Hopefully I'll have mine by 11am tomorrow.....

    I'm going off on vacation on Sunday, so I bit the bullet and ordered delivery. Apple's site still says 3-4 weeks, but AT&T's says 2-3, so I figured I'd order through them. We'll see how it goes!
