    Keep checking that site someone made that compiles the in the store pick up options. It literally changes multiple times a day. I ordered my 64gb gold AT&T and 16 gb gold AT&T phones on launch day and was still was waiting. Last night around 2 am I checked that site and saw 3 stores that had 16gb phones. Again I checked in the morning and same story. I checked again today around 630 and only 1 store in my area had 64gb gold phones. I canceled my online order and placed an in store pick up order and then 30 minutes later I convinced my mom to do the same. Some other stores had cropped up that we're closer that had 16gb phones but she decided to go ahead and get a 64gb. Keep at it. After today I'm convinced in store is the way to go!

    Had a friend come over last night, he had a 5s 64GB. Said he walked into our local AT&T store, they had gotten in 10 silver/white. He picked up one for him & his wife. So they are starting to show up looking like.

    Girlfriend and I decided we wanted the 5s the week after release, closest apple store is almost 3hrs away. Checked the verizon store and got a smile and "sorry." Figured we'd try best buy on the way home and found a pair of 32gb in gray and silver and picked them up. I gave up my unlimited data, but verizon had just set up a 6gb plan for the $30 price to entice us grandfathered folk out of our data and I took the bait with no regrets.

    My 4s finally gave out last night, I've been trying to make it hold on until my order from Rogers of a 32GB gold arrived, but it still hasn't even shipped yet. I walked into Best Buy today and got a 32GB white and silver. As much as I wanted gold, I am happy with the silver and it's going to spend 100% of its life in a case.

    I'd check it several times a day I finally found my phone around 630 pm Friday. I canceled both of my orders on apple.com and placed in store pick up orders.

    LOL!!!!! That's more if an effort than I'm ready to undertake! Actually I need to go to the store directly because for the first time ever I'm going to turn my previous phone for a new one. I want to use the trade in program.

    Hope you get yours soon! I'll just have to wait.

    It was actually the easiest way to track down a phone, refreshing a site vs calling around or physically showing up at stores. I'm not waiting on an ordered iPhone anymore. I canceled that order. On Friday I placed my order at 655 and it was available for pick up at 756. I got my iPhone that same night at 850.

    Since you wanna do a trade in placing an order for in store pick up won't work for you.

    Good luck I hope you get your phone soon.

    My sister and her MIL were able to walk right in to the ATT store by them on Saturday and get a white/silver and a white/gold without a single issue.

    I was able to walk into my local apple store and was lucky they had a couple in stock. Was able to trade my 4s for space gray 16gb. Check the apple store after 1030pm they usually have updated inventory and you should be able to buy and pickup the next day.

    I'd given up on trying to get a 5s. It's been a month and they still aren't in store.

    Too late, got a 5c.

    I walked into Best Buy last week and got a white/silver 64gb 5s without any problem. Took advantage of the old phone trade in deal with an old Blackberry I had laying around and got a $100 discount.

    Now I'll sell my 64gb iPhone 5 and probably break even...or maybe be a few bucks ahead?

    Either way, I'm digging the Touch ID.

    We are getting close to the point were stock will be readily available, I use that iphone checker and got about 5 emails of available gold 32gb available, all diff times of the day, also tonight on tmobiles website it shows gold and grey available in 32 but not in 16 the silver 32 is still back ordered which is strange but the point is there becoming available in the Philly , Nj area quite frequently , I have one but still enjoy the rush of checking and finding them lol
