    I mean from my experience working for VZW they should get their phones this afternoon/tonight because apple typically ships inventory to carrier stores the night before launch to avoid leaks on inventory and such.

    I`m seeing on several forums people saying they called their carrier stores and that they stated they aren't getting many or any gold or silver iphones at all and mainly apple stores will have them, and I saw a few things regarding the Aus release with people saying Apple reps were coming out to people waiting in line saying if you want a Gold iphone please go online to order.

    anyone else hearing stuff like this?

    I don't doubt it. Initially, my daughter stated that she wanted the green iPhone 5C, but now she's saving to get the gold iPhone 5S.

    My local AT&T store said they got a good amount of each color and size in. Don't know how many they are defining as good, though. That could mean anything.

    I called my local Verizon and they would not give me any info on inventory levels they said they recommend to be there by 7 open at 8 I'm going at 530 -6 just to be safe I have to be at work by 10 so I'm hoping it's not crazy .. I'm still undecided on color at first was gold but now leaning towards black and not sure if I should go 16 or 32 ahhhh

    yea they arent suppose to disclose any info about inventory they should only be saying "yea we will have iphones"

    I`m gonna order a gold online full price then try to get one instore. hopefully I can order Device Only so there isnt an upgrade tied to my line preventing me to be able to ugprade instore (eventhough I am paying full retail)

    I`m gonna go around 3am after I order my phone online

    I'm still hung up on what color and size to get myself. Pretty sure I'll stick with my first decision and get the 32GB Space Gray version.

    do apple stores all you to bill to your account? i do that with verizon all the time but this phone is actually being bought for me so i just want to bill it to my account until i'm given the money. (i sold my galaxy s4). it sounds like the chances of getting a gold model at a VZW store are slim at best.

    There was never an option given to bill to account in the past, they charge to a credit card on the spot.

    I honestly don't remember AT&T ever doing that either...but the last phone I bought at AT&T was the 3GS so they could have changed something since then for sure, lol!

    Bill to Account can only be done at VZW corporate stores.

    I do remember the *OLD* AT&T doing it... before they sold out to Cingular and then bought the AT&T name back... but not since before the Cingular days...

    dang looks like Ordering online will make thinks more difficult since there is no way to just buy a device straight out.
