    So with preorders getting delayed now, are you going to try and find a store (carrier,Best Buy or Apple store) who has your choice?

    My preorder ships October 4 but want to try to get it Friday. Is that possible ?

    There will more likely be some at stores, as what color and size, nobody knows.

    Anything is possible but highly unlikely

    Most Carriers are on delay. I'm sitting here at Sprint waiting for there System to come on-line

    I decided just to wait until November or December to get my iphone 7 Plus. I forgot that I have a lot going on in regards to traveling and stuff.

    Stores always have at least 5 variants come in. Just go to some out of the way store. The one I'm going Fri is on a main Street but it's in a weird stripmall set up.

    If I were looking to buy one, I would just order and wait out the shipment. It's a hassle always checking stores all the time because the time dedicated to that just means you're missing out on the days it takes an order to ship anyway.

    That's just my advice though. If you really have to have it in your hands ASAP, then by all means keep checking.

    Do you think the phones will be easier to find come late November and early December? I know that is the holiday season but I figure most of the people would have rushed out and bought them by then so it would be easier to find.

    Probably a little less difficult compared to now since that is the holiday season. I'd say just save the headache and just order online from Apple and wait out the shipment. If you really gotta have it, check Apple Store availability on the site or through their app every couple of hours.

    Yea I still plan on ordering online but after thinking about it this morning with all that I have going on buying the phone now proabably isn't the best thing. I am doing some traveling this month and next month and I am going to my first NFL game. so I need to save some cash ha. So the whole deal with AT&T last night might be for the best

    Are you at a store? I was able to preorder but during the process the system went down. I got it done and it only took about 15 minutes. Surprised me because last year it took 2 hours and the year before it took 1 hour.

    What a joke this new iPhone is...first time in the 7 different phone I have not preordered. My 6+ is running strong and will be updated with the new iOS. $900 richer

    What makes it a joke? Headphone jack aside, it's water and dust resistant, faster, has more memory, better battery life, brighter display, WAY better camera technology, stereo speakers, it's faster. How is your 6 Plus better?

    That's how I got my 6. Walked into a store in an almost empty strip mall at 7pm on launch day.

    Could care less over the camera. Faster for what? No issues with battery life now. Water resistant? I just keep it away from water, no issues with memory on mine. Ohh and have $900 extra to spend on other things. I guess if you have money to burn by all means.

    I was able to preorder at 5am eastern time this morning. Phone will be at the store on Sept 16th. I wanted the silver....so I was hoping it would be available. I know the 2 black variants will be harder to get.

    So because YOU don't have a need for the new features it's a joke. To each his/her own I guess.

    LOVE, how people come out of the wood work and come from other sites lol

    Comparing spec's,(You did read them didn't you?) it's a better over all device......To some it may not be a deal breaker. Which is fine, stick with what you have. It's your choice. But flat out lying saying the specs are not better then previous iPhones is the true joke.

    So people with a 5 / 5S / 6 that wan't to upgrade should not because you have a 6Plus? No one says you need to upgrade.. but don't **** on those who want to upgrade regardless of their phone. Do you feel coming here and trolling about you're lack of need for a 7 make you feel that much more special? I find it odd, that people that are not interested in something, need to show up and belittle all those who want something else. Wonder why it makes someone feel good to make others feel bad. It's an odd bully mentality.

    By the way.. the term is "couldn't care less", not "could care less".. if you could care less, you care.

    Filthy language aside, I found the video to be humorous. I certainly don't agree with their assessment, but I'm ok with people making fun of things I like. I have several friends who make fun of me for using an iPhone, period.
    I am not upgrading to the 7 plus, but that's only because I messed up my trade in by buying the Note 7. Oh well. The new 6s plus I have will be fine until next year... unless I somehow figure out a way to swing the 7 this year.
