    Seems local stores have plenty of VZW Gray 64G 6S+'s in stock but not AT&T version. Any issues with a VERIZON (unlocked of course) version on AT&T? I understand the VZW model is missing the new LTE band but does it really matter (NY/NJ area).

    The extra band could become relevant in that area within the next year as I'm sure they have a fairly dense network there and the demand for capacity is high. However, I doubt AT&T is going to reach capacity in that time either, especially with carrier aggregation of the other bands. So I would say go for it. Band 30 will probably play a much bigger role in the decision making process next year.

    I would get the AT&T one. A few more days isn't going to really matter in the grand scheme of things.

    And depending on where you are, I saw a Silver 64GB 6S+ in the Westchester, NY Area on Apple's site to reserve it.

    Thanks. That's what I figured. I'm currently using a VZW 6+ on AT&T but wasn't sure of the importance of 30. I usually replace the phone every year anyway. I really can't understand why Apple just doesn't make them all the same (with all bands) anyway. I'll bet the other models either have 30 already (has anyone ever done a "live test" and is there a way to see what bands are being used by the phone?) or have it but have locked it down.

    Yes, thanks, I've been looking and saw them but they are too far and not the color. :) I'm going to go in for the VZW and maybe they will have a ATT cancellation.

    Problem solved. Just scored an AT&T one to my spec at Short Hill NJ. Kept watching for a reservation to appear and it finally did. Just picked it up. Even paid with ApplePay/Discover and saved 10%. :D

    Awesome, I'm glad you made the right choice and went with the AT&T model. I was trying to push you towards that way, without trying to be forceful or inconsiderate. But I think in the long term, you've made the correct choice.

    Enjoy it! :)
