    I waiting in line at my local att store only to find out at 730am that they only had space grey. Will Apple stores have constrained supplies like these carries? I placed an online apple order this morning for white but is it worth it to try my luck at an apple store?

    I am not 100% on this, but I think since you ordered online you already burned your upgrade and to get that back you would need to cancel the order obviously but I think its 12-24 hours to get the upgrade back in the system from AT&T/Verizon. Can anyone confirm this or lack of sleep and insanity hour making me crazy?

    I was able to cancel on Apple's site and get my upgrade back instantly.

    I'm a little worried about using the upgrade also. Is it instant? 30min? I feel like I've done it before and it was only a few minutes.

    Thank you sampson

    Space Gray is the only color worth getting! It's also the color with the dumbest name.

    Does anyone know if I could replace the body of my iPhone 5 with this new color?

    Our store (Bethesda, MD - DC suburb) had a HANDFUL of gold and silver. I was #7 in line, and wanted 2 AT&T 32Gb phones, one gold and one silver. I got a 64gb gold (there was only ONE 32 gb gold, and the first guy in line got it), and a 32 gb gray. I could have gotten a 16gb silver - there were one or two left when it was my turn to choose - but I knew that was too small for my husband.

    Was #27 in Apple store line and all they had for Verizon was Space Gray 16 or 64. We were a little miffed to say the least because we were in line for 8 hours to be so far ahead on the line.

    But we were out of the store with 16gig grays in hand by 9am...

    Jumped in line about 10 minutes ago at the Madison, WI Apple store. Security guy said there was about 150 people lined up by 1am. I got here about 10 minutes ago and all they have is Space Gray, which is fine by me since that's what I came for.

    I was in line at the Bethesda store too in the DC area. They had very few white phones compared to the Space Grey. I was maybe 60th/70th in line and did not get my first choice which was the silver\white. So I just took the last 32 gig Space Grey for T-Mobile.

    When I attempted to order the Apple store couldn't connect to Verizon to verify upgrade eligibility so I was given a reservation. Went to place a contingency order with Verzion. Got the email from Apple indicating that I could complete my reserved order but was not able to process due to the Verizon order. Cancelled my Verizon order and was able to complete the Apple order instantly.

    I will be happy if my apple store has a 16 or 32gb space grey 5s in stock. It's the color I want I unfortunately can not get down there for another 1 1/2- 2 hrs. So I'll call before I head down there.

    Poorly handled launch by apple.

    Lots of unhappy customers in line. They could have told people that got there what they had.

    The good news for me was, it made my mind up that I wanted the Space Gray and not the Silver, and I am VERY happy with it.

    I ordered at 2:02am but ordered the wrong color so I cancelled, but my credit card had already been billed. I called ATT to see if I could get my upgrade reinstated. After 30 minutes I was told that my order through Apple was already processed and that it would be shipped anyway. I don't think so since I got a cancellation email from Apple. Oh well I will just have to wait until everything finishes processing and try again. Bummed since I wanted to give this to my son for his 18th birthday, but it is a lesson learned. Don't order stuff online when you are still half asleep. lol
