    I stayed up that night to order thru Sprint as well.. Started trying at 200 am. It was a Major nightmare for sure. Sprint sight was down and I couldn't get it to load, so I called the order by phone number at 204 am.. Put on hold, used a 2nd phone to call same line, put on hold . Then I kept trying sprint site.. The Sprint site would start to load and never finish. I was trying on my iPad and laptop. Finally got order placed at 324 am.. After trying since 200 am. When all was said and done, I never got Sprint to answer either line on phones...after 1 hour and 40 mins.. Nuts.. My order is for 6 Plus Gold 64 gig. My order has always said delivers in up to 3 weeks.. Any news on anyone else's Sprint order??

    I haven't ordered mine yet but I spoke to corporate and they are saying there are no guarantees on a date and they're looking at a 4-6 week timeframe for delivery. We're realistically looking at the end of October for delivery unless Apple can keep up with demand a little faster. One store near me said they aren't even launching the 6+ on the 19th so take that for what it's worth (stores are sometimes unsure or under orders to not talk so that may or may not be 100% true, but they sure weren't interested in retaining my business when I said Verizon and AT&T were launching on the 19th and they told me, and I quote, "Well go to one if them then.")

    I called a store and was told they are pushing everybody back to 4-6 weeks and they will not be getting any 6+ on the 19th.

    So what about the pre orders that was done in the stores? I called the Sprint store today to see if they could track my order, because I do have a order number on my receipt and I was told that I had to wait until Friday.

    I called order support and was told no one is getting 6+ I don't know how true this is but I don't think the stores will have 6+ I think their main concern is filling pre-orders. I don't know what to believe anymore but it's making me mad that my wait could be 6 weeks and my money is gone.

    This is my 3rd preorder..,2 of which were with Sprint. I've seen these won't arrive by the 19th or even within 3 weeks. I'm convinced that some Sprint customers will receive their 6 plus within that time frame. Maybe not many, but to say Sprint will not be delivering any 6 plus is a bit far fetched. It's the same song and dance every preorder. Sprint is covering their butts. Don't give up hope.. look at this way, by preordering the 6 plus, we are already ahead of the curve. My 5 preorder said 3 to 4 weeks... I got it delivered on launch day.

    I do agree finding a 6 plus in a Sprint store on launch day.. Is pretty much a given .. No

    Nah I'm keeping up the hope. It's a lot of misinformation.

    It's a guy on reddit that claims he works for sprint in the warehouse and they had 200,000 iPhone 6+ it's just a lot of information floating around.

    I did get my case though.

    I just looked through Apple's site and I'm seeing delivery date windows of October 14th-21st right now - which is right around 4 weeks from now give or take. They say it's a 3-4 week delivery window, so maybe, JUST MAYBE, that 4-6 window is highballing it.

    I'm pretty disappointed, considering many verizon customers and pre-orders through apple are already getting updates stating for the 19th.. Sprint always seems to slap their customers in the face one way or the other. (of course if I end up getting it on Friday I'll retract everything I just said.. Lol)

    When it comes to posting shipping info... Or really any info on order status after the initial ..
    You've preordered a Iphone... Sprint Blows.
    Last preorder I had with Sprint, it was a tracking # at 430 am, with the order already on truck for delivery that day. I've had no complaints about Sprint service for the last 15 months ( since LTE was finally added) but Sprint has always been the worst with shipping info .

    At&t was sneaky. They canceling orders for 6 plus for bogus reasons. I've had 7 lines on my account and they canceled my 6 plus order and let the 6 go through.

    I called and they can't even find the order.

    Meanwhile I have the confirmation.

    I couldn't order on Apple because of Easy Pay.

    This is why I'm waiting. I have an upgrade but I want the phone as soon as possible. I'll wait til it does down. Or just wait until my store gets some and "hold" it. 😉

    I just hope "shipping in up to 3 weeks" doesn't turn into "shipping in a minimum of 3 weeks"

    I am hoping that maybe they meant a maximum of 3 weeks , and it comes in 1 or 2
