    It's a hot item.

    You're better off just getting to an Apple Store and lining up at 9am and you'll probably get one.

    Millions of Samsung Note and Galaxy converts that jumped on the Plus along with iPhone users upgrading = very short supply.

    Demand has outpaced supply... they'll achieve equilibrium sometime in the not too distant future.

    I think a short supply of the Plus was anticipated. They almost didn't release it until this month.

    I actually found a 128GB Verizon Plus new on eBay for $900 (minus $100 from eBay Certificates) so it came out to $800. Just make sure you buy from a reputable seller or you can just order online and wait 3-4 weeks.

    That's cheaper than retail! It would be a good deal but for that price I would think twice, what if it was a scam?

    I strongly agree with this statement. It's by far the best handset I've ever owned. This is coming from a ex-Android, ex-Windows Mobile, and ex-Blackberry user.

    I realized from the jump that if I wanted to get my paws on a 6+ sooner than later then my best bet was to order directly from Apple. On 9/19 I showed up to my local Apple Store (the closest one to me is 70 minutes away) and there were over 100 people in line who had already pre-ordered the device so I had 0 chance of landing one that day so I placed a order online at Apple.com that very same day and my 128GB Silver iPhone 6 Plus showed up on my doorstep on 10/3.

    Tell me about it. I've had mine on order since 9/19 and probably won't see it till mid/end of November.

    I just can't believe I can't find them at any AT&T store either, I was told they won't have them until Thanksgiving or Christmas.

    Well. Unfortunately, it's how it is.

    When I went to the Apple store to exchange my leather case, I was able to have a long conversation with the guy. He told me that they haven't had an iPhone plus since launch day. They have plenty of the 6 but no 6+ at all. He also told me that they only got 200 iPhones plus on launch day. So go figure.....

    He said everyone wants the plus. Even him couldn't get it yet till they have plenty at the store if he wanted to get it with the employee discount.

    Our store gets them in almost daily but they sell just as quick as they come in. I wonder when apple started to let employees get a discount on iPhones?

    Because they made less of them because they were focusing on what they assumed would be the bigger seller (the iPhone 6) which is not the case. Whoever manages this for apple does a poor job, because they should have known this from the start. I mean just look around and you can see people want larger phones.

    Most of my Android friends would say they would be all over the iPhone if it was bigger. They got their wish.

    Nope not a scam. Works great! That's why it is important to buy from a reputable seller!

    It is God's way of telling you to wait to upgrade.

    You asked why? Blame China. Apples got some demand over there apparently.

    They didn't make less. They had a issue wiling screen production anathema not being up to spec for Apple. This was back in June early July I believe so they had to replace the screens that were defective.

    Although they did have production ratio of 60 to 40 there's way less then 40% more like 15%
