New Guy Here

Just ordered mine here in Pittsburgh. Didn't show up right at 10. It took a few minutes. There were still phones available for a long time after I ordered mine (AT&T 16GB BLACK). Now I have to see about returning that Walmart presale card.

(yeah I know..) after seeing the commotion I realized Ill get it in November.. and here I am...2 days after canceling my pre order I have my iPhone 16 black waiting for me for pick up tomorrow

Final verdict is... If your effective pre order date is 15th or later.. drop it and hunt for the pick in store option
My preorder is the 22nd because I thought my preorder on the 14th went though . Guess I'll take my chances with the pick up option

They are all out of stock now. ATT/32GB/Black was the last one to to at 5th Avenue. I actually have one booked there that I need to cancel in case you want it...

I've looked around it looks like it's updated in some central time zones... Dallas has a 64 gb verizon... it looks like there were way more 64 gigs delivered today than 16 gigs

Chicago seems to be the store closest to me with anything in stock.

I just found this thread (and this forum) by literally googling "iphone 5 unavailable for pickup". Then, I saw your post.

Here's basically what everyone has to do: on your iPhone in the apple store, when you get to the locator, simply keep pressing the store fields. As you do, they update, even though it likely says "unavailable for pickup" most of the time.

Same goes for ordering via your PC/Mac browser. Simply keep clicking "locate" with the same zip code entered. That's what I did. Eventually the Michigan Ave store in Chicago turned to available and BANG!! ...I jump on it!

Although, I opted for the white 16 GB in hopes of scratches being less visible.

Looks like no stores got any 16GB in tonight so far

I am not currently eligible for an upgrade with AT&T, but my husband is .... and he's being nice and letting me use his upgrade In order to order the phone, I have to put in my husband's phone number... anyone know if this is going to be a problem when I pick the phone up in store? or can they easily just apply my phone number to the phone? (hope this made sense!)

I just got iPhone 5 White & Silver 64GB, picking it up from Orland Square, IL only one that had that in Chicagoland. I, initially, wanted the black one but there was none available. I am ecstatic.

Well I ordered last night, went into this store this morning...got my new iPhone 5. No issues. Quick and painless. Cancelled my pre-order that wasn't suppose to be here until the 2nd or 3rd week of October.

ALSO inventories didn't update until just after 10pm PACIFIC STANDARD TIME last night.

Yeah put in his number and than take it to an ATT store and switch the numbers.

I got a preorder yesterday at an austin store and did the same thing.
