    I think even Apple is saying October deliveries. I think you'll just be waiting, sucks to say.

    10:00 pm local time, check availability at your closest Apple store. My daughter picked up her 5 yesterday.

    No Apple store in your area? All of the Atlanta Apple stores now have plenty of stock arriving daily so i would imagine most larger markets would be the same.

    I agree with salscott, check Radio Shack. I made my decision to get the 5 Tuesday morning & no one had it but Radio Shack. The store manager told me they got a large shipment of them & not many people were checking their stores for them so they still had a bunch left over.

    I just went ahead and ordered it online. I've waited two years and three months, what's one more month using my IPhone 4? I know I will not change my mind AND I will have time to leisurely pick out a case plus I don't have to drive or call all over town. I can wait!

    Buy it online between 10:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. for in-store pickup the next day. Limited quantities may also be available for in-store pickup on a first-come, first-served basis.

    I have Case-Mate Glam in gold & a Griffin Reveal in black...Love them both! I also ordered an Otterbox Defender in navy/green & a Commuter in orange/grey. I do go naked sometimes, but I'm definitely a case junkie LOL

    So the reveal is what I'm Considering..it shows and protects the back. Many say that it scratches easily or is loose. Do you have either issue?

    I've had 2 Reveals, and they both scratched very easily. Other than that, I like it.

    I'm curious what scratches look like on this cover. There is also a rocketfish clear cover at best buy that has watermark issues according to feedback....so I am conflicted on which way to go. I do know that I'm not covering the back unless clear...not gonna happen.

    "After work" is going to be tough... you probably can get one if you go in the morning. I was at one of my nearby Apple Stores the other morning around 11am (Walnut Creek CA) and they had 32gb & 64gb in stock without a steady line of about 10 people getting them one after the other

    Go to the Apple website at 10 pm local time and check availability. If they have what you want, you can reserve it and pick it up the next day.

    They handle upgrades same as always.

    I picked up mine at a Radio Shack. Call a few around your area to see what they have in stock.

    they're thinking by tomorrow but they still have pre orders to fill and waiting lists

    ---------- Post Merged at 12:55 PM ---------- Previous Post was at 12:53 PM ----------

    ok, so i did talk to a rep at the Apple store and i think i may try to order one tonight and pick it up tomorrow

    however, there might be an issue. the upgrade I'm using is from another line on my account. they told me I would need to contact my carrier to switch it to my my line.. but in the meantime i'll have to choose some sort of data plan before i leave the store..

    sounds like a PITA

    I had to do something close to that and encountered no problem. But can you just ask to renew the actual plan for your other line? If you can't, they'll switch the line to your phone number, but your other line will be stuck with the new plan you had to choose.

    Stalk your local Apple or carrier store.. its first come first serve.. and as soon as they come in stock they leave early..

    but i think you would have to just wait till Oct.. n even then it will be sold out in the first day they come in
