    I am still in the in-processing phase for my black 64gb VZW phone. This seems to be a trend. Do you think the 64gb is the most rare?

    I think 16gb is the one that people buy a lot of because of the price.

    because most people aren't going to drop $399 on a phone (or $849 unsubsidized).

    No iPhone model is "rare". It's a mass produced device.

    I was speaking in relative terms.

    ATT sold out of 16gb and 32gb versions before the 64gb

    Of the 3 models, it is probably the least produced and purchased. The 16GB being the most popular.

    Rare would imply a limited quantity. I think what he's saying is that there are as many that are ordered, with no artificial limits. Another way of looking at it, is it the worst selling iPhone?

    A better question to ask is, "who cares?" Honestly, does it matter?

    My 64 black is sent for processing according to Verizon. I wish Verizon had better online order management like Apple.

    The 17" MBP sold the least, I still wouldn't call it "rare" though.

    Same here. It seems to be a common theme among the people who ordered Black 64GB on Verizon's site.

    when i was pre-ordering mine in the Three mobile store, they said if i had wanted a 16gb i probably wouldn't get it on the first batch because its far and away the most popular, then 32gb and 64gb pre-orders are about equal and I should get one. I wanted a 32gb same as my iphone4.

    I would have purchased a 32 or 64GB and replaced my iPod, if I weren't worried the iPhone 5 will be incompatible with my car. My Nissan has a built-in iPod interface... and even with a Dock-to-Lightning converter, it may not talk to the iPhone 5 correctly.

    So, 16GB for me. That should be more than enough to handle my apps. I reserve large apps/games for my iPad.

    I ordered the 64gb and I was in Preparing for Shipment the day after pre-orders started.

    i had a 64gb 4s. theres really nothing to show off or anyting in terms of memory size. i went for a 32gb this time for the 5 since i never filled up 64gb or half of it! XD

    buy what u need, no point of spending more what space u wont use

    I'm going to say you.... Since you have repeatedly visited a thread titled " 64gb iPhone the most rare??? "

    I too got a 64 GB 5 and it hasn't shipped yet. Technically, Verizon website says "will ship by 9/21" so who knows...

    I would imagine the 64 GB is the least demanded based on cost but I could be wrong.

    Anyways, you are in the same boat as a lot of us. I've seen a few, including myself, with Verizon 64GB phones still sitting in the processing items stage. I ordered right when pre-orders came online @ apple.com as well.

    He didn't say rare, he said "most rare".... which is completely proper grammar for the question. I guarantee that apple doesn't manufacture the exact same amounts of 16GB 32GB and 64GB units. He wants to know which of these are the most rare. Or which of these unit there are the least amount of.

    My 4S came from PA and took 1.5 days to arrive. If our 5's are coming from the same place I'm guessing they won't ship until tomorrow. You're in MI and I'm in OH.

    Yep, same general area. I'm not going to be extremely concerned until Thursday haha. Apple already charged me for AppleCare and the iPhone charge is still pending on my credit card. Bought it unsubsidized, ouch!

    No, in that case the word is "extinct."

    a lot can't afford the 64gb.

    Which is good, because I'll be able to get one.

    I try to stay away from the "family upgrade" sized devices.. [8,16, and the last model iphone] because christmas is coming up, and I know families all buy in bulk.

    Not really. I just visited the thread because the question was inane.
