    I normally don't do this but there won't be anyone to sign for the package when it arrives..so it's a vacation day for me. Initially I was going to go into the Apple store via an appointment but decided to just wait at home. Anyone else? Yes, I know I'm crazy.

    Yup. Took a personal day. Works out as I can pick up my phone at the depot and then do some errands. Not waste a day waiting for the UPS driver to show up.

    I'm taking the day off, but not for the phone. I'll be getting surgery tomorrow (Thursday) and will be going home on Friday (iPhone 6S day). I'm really hoping for an afternoon delivery so I can be home in time to receive it! If not, does anyone here know what they do with deliveries in Australia? Will I have to get my husband to pick it up from the post office, or will they try delivery again the next day?

    I have a reservation for 11:30 to get mine but that leaves me with just enough time to eat lunch and get back to the lab where I'll have to remain until 5:00. Afterwards I can go home and restore from backup to start enjoying the new phone.

    I thought about it, but nah I'll probably still go to work. My daughter is having a friend spend the night on Friday and her birthday party is Saturday... I think I'd rather be out of the house while my wife frantically tries to get the place ready (honestly I'd prefer to help her out but I know when it's better just to stay out of her way!).

    I wish. I am simply having the phone delivered to my work. Should be able to restore it from my computer at work, but other than that won't get to use it much.

    Yep; I have plenty of vacation time so a three day weekend on top of a new phone was just too much to pass up.

    I work in Manhattan, so I'm taking the day off to be home to receive my phone and to avoid the traffic madness that will occur in the city on Friday.

    Day off for a phone that's 99.2% the same as the previous version, erm NO!!! I'm not talking a day off for the phone, I'm off but I won't be getting the phone, I'll do that on work time the following week.

    Yep, I took a personal day Friday for phone pickup day. My reservation is at 8am, so I COULD have gone to work a little late, but I'm leaving for Hawaii (work trip) on Saturday morning, and have about 100 other things to do, so a whole day off made good sense!

    I'm not taking the day off. It just happens to be one of my normal off days.

    I did but since we have to put our requests in a month early I took the 18th off figuring Apple would release the week after the keynote like usual. Thankfully I'm off at 5 so I'll have plenty of time to get the phone restored and play with it.
