Apple REFUSED TO SELL ME AN IPHONE 6 PLUS THAT THEY HAD IN STOCK. I enjoy Apple and their tech. But what I really hate is the buying and shopping experience for an apple device. It is an absolute nightmare. Trying and attempting to shop for an iPhone 6 Plus for the past three weeks has been the most distressing shopping experience I have ever had. So much so, that I have given up for good. 1. First I paid ATT $200 to become eligible early for a NEXT upgrade. I placed an order for an iPhone 6 Plus that soon got an estimate of over 45 days. I cancelled the order, found two ATT stores that showed availability, called those stores multiple times to confirm availability and got NO ANSWER from them. Get there only to find out, their system shows availability for phones that have been ordered for someone else. How does that make any sense? 2. I check apple's 5th avenue store. A few days after constantly checking apple's stocks in NYC, I see they finally have them in. I go online to order and pick up in store, only to be informed ATT NEXT CANNOT BE DONE ONLINE. So I call the store's phone number to order via the phone and a representative (somewhere else in the US) tells me to go to the store since I can't do NEXT via the phone either. I travel 1 hour to Apple's NYC 5th ave store hoping they'll still have the phone in stock when I get there only to find out they're only selling to people who have pre-ordered online before coming in. I explain to two different blue shirts what I was told to do by an apple representative, and their only solution? Order online or COME IN AT 5AM NEXT DAY. WE CANNOT SELL IPHONES TODAY TO WALK INS. I ask both of them if they have the phone in stock, they say YES, but will not sell it to me. I was looking forward to returning to iPhone after 2 years on android. I'm a long time Mac user, and wanted to complement my professional life with both an iPad Air 2 and an iPhone for easy document synchronization. But this experience has just ruined it for me. I just pre-ordered the Nexus 9, and will be pre-ordering the Nexus 6 at the end of the month. I'll continue to miss the iTunes store the most, but I can make it by without it. These products cost a lot of money for customers to be treated this way.
