    On launch day i was the first person in line at Bestbuy in Birmingham, AL (the hwy 280 store). The store manager comes out about 20 min ahead of them opening the doors and says they do not have any 6 plus inventory. So i went ahead and bought a 6, but i want the plus so bad! I can return in by 10/3 (tomorrow), but will be without a phone. Does anyone honor bestbuy gift cards (they gave me $225 for my iPhone 5), or where can i find 6 plus inventory? Help me! LOL

    I doubt anybody outside of Best Buy will honor the gift card, but I don't know for certain. As for where you can purchase an iPhone 6 Plus, it's a crap shoot at this point in time. many people who have pre-ordered are still awaiting their new devices, but your best bet would be at an Apple Store, in my opinion.

    Checking the Bestbuy website the Plus does not seem like it's available to them yet. They only seem to have higher capacity iphone 6s available. The Plus is listed as coming soon. I'm guessing your best bet is the Apple Store, and spending the bestbuy giftcard on something else.

    Apple Store is your best bet. Their online availability isn't accurate. I checked to see if they had stock at the store near me and it said no. I showed up at the actual store and they had everything in stock, including the Plus. The guy in front of me bought 2!

    People need to stop going to big chain retailers or carrier stores when trying to get iPhones...it was a PITA for the pre-order and it seems to be a PITA when trying to buy one after release.

    Go to the Apple Store...I don't know how many other ways this can be said.

    Not everybody has that option. The closest Apple Store to me is like 5 hours away....

    Thanks everyone for your input! I'm gonna try and go to the Summit to see if they have any available and use my Bestbuy gift card for something else...maybe some headphones or something...who knows!

    Also, does Apple do iPhone 6 trade ins?

    I do not believe they accept current generation tech for trade in

    I'm 80+ miles from the nearest Apple Store. Verizon is 5 miles. There's only 2 Apple Stores in the entire state of Alabama.

    So what about his option....if my mother has an upgrade and she obtains a 6 plus, can't we just swap sim cards and all is fine?

    Same thing happened to me at T-Mobile but I did not cave like you did. I used a cheap 20.00 prepaid phone until I found a 6+.

    What you can do with that gift card is buy a Visa gift card right there at BestBuy. Sure, it'll cost $5.95 to activate the card but better than having a Best Buy gift card you can only use there.

    Take it from me, I did this with the sale of my 2 iPhone 5s

    I was at the Apple Store yesterday buying the Apple Care Plus for my 6+. There was a long line outside the store. I was told they're buying the iPhone 6. So have you checked your local Apple Store?
