10:00 pm local time, check availability at your closest Apple store. My daughter picked up her 5 yesterday.

No Apple store in your area? All of the Atlanta Apple stores now have plenty of stock arriving daily so i would imagine most larger markets would be the same.

I agree with salscott, check Radio Shack. I made my decision to get the 5 Tuesday morning & no one had it but Radio Shack. The store manager told me they got a large shipment of them & not many people were checking their stores for them so they still had a bunch left over.

Damnt....I'm still waiting for my store to get their first shipment. Today maybe.

I just went ahead and ordered it online. I've waited two years and three months, what's one more month using my IPhone 4? I know I will not change my mind AND I will have time to leisurely pick out a case plus I don't have to drive or call all over town. I can wait!

I have Case-Mate Glam in gold & a Griffin Reveal in black...Love them both! I also ordered an Otterbox Defender in navy/green & a Commuter in orange/grey. I do go naked sometimes, but I'm definitely a case junkie LOL

So the reveal is what I'm Considering..it shows and protects the back. Many say that it scratches easily or is loose. Do you have either issue?

I've had 2 Reveals, and they both scratched very easily. Other than that, I like it.

the fit on these are good. the back scratches fast and easily. remember being it clear it shows more and and its plastic. overall it gives good looks.

I'm curious what scratches look like on this cover. There is also a rocketfish clear cover at best buy that has watermark issues according to feedback....so I am conflicted on which way to go. I do know that I'm not covering the back unless clear...not gonna happen.

"After work" is going to be tough... you probably can get one if you go in the morning. I was at one of my nearby Apple Stores the other morning around 11am (Walnut Creek CA) and they had 32gb & 64gb in stock without a steady line of about 10 people getting them one after the other
