    I need to find something to do with myself. Ordered a 6+ 128GB SG from the Apple Store on the 25th with a ship date of 10/24-31. I am going to drive myself crazy waiting for this thing. Think I have been on the Apple site at least 10 times per day this week checking the status knowing that it's not going to change for a couple weeks yet. Already ordered my cases and screen protectors and now I just have to sit and wait it out, that is if I don't lose my mind waiting first.

    Anyone else in the same spot as me? Is this normal, lol???

    Sorry if this has been posted a hunderd times already but I just don't know what to do with myself till this thing gets here...

    Try to make a reserve. And if you do cancel your pre order

    You're definitely not alone. I too am constantly checking the status in the hope that my 6+ will ship soon. My ship date is 10/15.
    I'm also checking the Apple Store app in hopes they have one that I can get my hands on earlier, no such luck yet.

    I cancelled my preorder to find one sooner. I drove a lot but found one. It is possible. Focus on the smaller stores. I found mine at a best buy mobile

    Yeah I keep reading these threads about them shipping early. I know it will still be at least another week or two for me to even be in that boat but I guess one can pray, lol.

    Check Radioshacks and BB Mobile stores. If you have a local Apple Store swing by first thing in the morning or around 1400 after their afternoon deliveries.

    I never pre order for this very reason. I always foot soldier it until I find one which is usually quite fast

    Yeah I pre-ordered for the simple fact that I don't have much time to run out to the store to pick one up between kids, work, and life in general. I have been watching and calling about inventories though. I am thinking I will eventually run into one at a store before my deliver date arrives. I just have to keep plugging away at it. Hopefully sometime soon the stars will align and I can get one in my hands within the next week or two and not at the end of the month. I don't want to settle for a Silver or Gold though as I love the Space Grey color and I also want it to be 128GB. We will see..

    I just ordered one from Sprint yesterday 10/1/14. 4-6 weeks they are showing.
    This year I'm not able to hit the streets and find a stray like I did with the 5S. It is what it is.

    Yeah, I know the feeling because I hate waiting for stuff. I want my iPhone 6+ and I want it now! My two year old temper tantrum! Placed my pre-order on 9/12 with a possible sip date 10/17.

    Meanwhile, I ordered a case from Amazon to pass some time.

    I knew I was in for a long wait when I pulled the trigger. But it could ship sooner or it might ship later. In my case I think later.

    Find a young kid that is struggling in school and offer some tutoring. That will distract you from the phone and you will help another person in the meantime.

    No ordering here I'm at the mercy of verizon waiting for some to be in stock so I can pull the trigger. I can't wait to own it. However not gonna lie I'm gonna miss my trusty iPhone 5 it's running iOS 8 and running great.

    I pre ordered at a local Verizon store on the 13th mid afternoon, originally had an expected ship date of 10/28 after a week it moved to 10/24. About 15 minutes ago when I checked again (impatient here) it's changed to an order number with a blank tracking number. I then checked my bank account for some Indiana Jones style deep research I noticed there was a pending transaction for Verizon in the price of the phone slated to go through tomorrow. So I can only imagine that tomorrow I will have a tracking number with an expected delivery time of next week sometime, I will then have my 64gig gold 6+ over 2 weeks early! I hope this gives some of you hope, and prompts some of you to check your order status

    I would love to have my 6Plus for Halloween but seeing how T-Mobile probably won't be carrying any until Thanksgiving.... I'm SOL on the stores & customer service. Unless I change carriers; which will never happen.

    I have also been impatiently waiting for my 128 GB, Space Grey, iPhone 6 Plus. Even though others have complained about the preorder process, in the grand scheme of things I don't think that really has been an issue for me other than I just want my phone. Some of the key features in iOS 8 that I am looking forward to have not been enabled yet. My cases that I really wanted have just been shipped. And while waiting, I still have my iPhone 5S and my iPad Air to meet all of my needs. I think what has been driving me crazy more than anything is visiting these forums and reading about others stressing over the length of their wait. I would guarantee that if I stopped coming here and stopped checking my order status three times a day, I would eventually not stress over it and before I knew it, it would be shipped to my door. But that's easier said than done. But it is probably the healthiest thing for me to do.
