    It was pretty bad. They weren't selling what that we wanted.

    They have a stock pile of 5c's unlocked, but no 5s unlocked.

    I count 5 people, who walked out of line because they had no silver and gold.

    Thoughts?

    Thoughts are if a store doesn't have what I want, I walk away too.

    I think it is great that you and others walked away because they didn't have what you wanted. It makes more sense than those that buy what they don't want hoping to return it within the allotted timeframe and get what they really want.

    Are you going to order online?

    But for the 5 People that walked away, how many purchased a phone?

    Apple does not care about a few people walking about because they are still going to sell them as quickly as they can make them.

    I suspected they wouldn't have the goods. Although it was unexpected when they took it down from their website at the last minute.

    I suspect that Apple will have them in stores next month. I just won't have a phone until then. If it takes more than a month, I won't be getting the 5s at all.

    My friend got in line at an Apple store near his work in Century City, CA.

    Got in line at 8am (when the store opened), and he's just now almost walking out with his space gray Verizon 16gb 5S.

    He was texting me updates, the gold and silver both sold out super quick. Luckily he wanted a space gray anyways.

    I find it insane for anyone to settle on what they originally wanted.

    For someone willing to wait on line for hours for an expensive product, I find it irritating that they are willing to settle. You had the will power to stand on line for a day but not just wait maybe a few more weeks for what you really want.

    I went to Sprint. I got in line of about 5 people and I overheard them saying they only had Space gray. I said I would come back another time and I just left. No point in waiting for the color I didn't want.

    I walked away when they were out of silver I ended up walking out of Best Buy with what I wanted a few hours later.
