    That's cheaper than retail.
    Maybe it's a Sprint model haha.

    I actually had ordered a 64gb space grey...not shipping until 2 more weeks. I walked into the Apple Store last night and bought a 128gb space grey.

    The Plus 128GB is going for 1400-1700 and people ARE buying them at that. Nuts. I thought about selling mine for a BRIEF moment. I love my Plus, I see why people are clamoring for one!
    I find it ridiculous that people can be so impatient about getting a new iPhone 6 Plus, that they're willing to pay $500 more. I'm waiting until January for my upgrade with Verizon, and don't mind doing it. It is "Nuts".

    I agree! The most I will pay is full retail.

    I would have waited myself but I kind of got screwed by T-Mobile. I sold my iPhone 5S the day before launch. I called T-Mobile the evening of launch and was told they had Pluses in stock and that would be opening up at 8 AM. I arrived later in the evening and "camped out". At about 7 AM the manager came out and said there was no Pluses and that he was sorry. So I was without a phone and thought I would be okay in using this cheap 20.00 prepaid one I got but I found out quickly that lugging around my Macbook Pro was not practical and my supervisors started giving me crap about not being on top of my emails. 50.00 mark up was not bad. I would never pay 300+.

    So, I waited on line, overnight and after many hours, finally had my Iphone 6, 64 gig, silver and was absolutely happy, then, it happened. You guessed it, I saw a dude in the coffee shop with the 6 plus. Talked to him for a bit about it and he was just gitty over the size, screen, etc, etc. Suddenly I started to rethink my purchase of the 6. Did i make mistake? How could this be? Went back to the apple store and after an hour of comparisons between the two, I decided I had to have the plus. So I returned my 6 but now I am iphone less because trying to find a Iphone 6 plus for T-Mobile, 64 gig in silver is like trying to find a unicorn mounted by Sasquatch and Sasquatch is holding a leprechaun with a pot of friggan gold!!! Where can I find an iphone 6 plus???
    in the leprechauns hand

    Agree. There is no need to pay more for something that you really don't even need. I would wait before I paid more than you will pay for a brand new device.

    Do you guys worry about buying from CL or Swappa? If someone uses Jump, Next, etc they could pocket your money and turn around and cancel their service or report the phone lost/stolen. It makes me real nervous.

    You all will love your 6 plus like I do. I never considered the 6.
    Yupe. I wanted the 6+ since it was announced. Now I have the 6+ for more than a week and I know I made the right decision.

    That's why I was extremely cautious with my 6+ purchase. The guy I bought it from seemed to be pretty legit. Pulled up in an Mercedes SUV with 2 car seats in the back. Provided me with the Apple store receipt that showed he paid for it in full and gave it to me for my records. Also met me at a T-Mobile store so they could check it against any holds, etc. The phone was brand new and sealed. Opened it up right there.

    I saved all email correspondence and I also have his address and phone in case something happens but I doubt that will happen. He was a genuinely nice guy.

    I have in the past met up with people on CL for a phone buy and I have walked away when I got a bad vibe. As long as you are smart about CL then you should be fine. You can get great deals on there as long as you are careful. I think CL gets a bad rap over people who lack common sense. Like people who buy iPads from gas station parking lots then finding out the box is full of paper or a brick (lol, I shouldn't laugh but...).

    I personally know people who have gotten screwed on CL. I personally have not and done more deals on there then anyone I know. Honestly I think it's more of a common sense thing than anything else.

    I'm feeling for you, they are both great devices. January is a bit of a waite.

    Very true. I tagged along with a friend a few years back on a phone buy since she was new to the whole thing. She was quick to buy and I sniffed a shady thief and suggested she not go through with it. She did and it turned out the phone was reported as stolen about 3 days later. Got to pay attention to certain signs.
