First off, to all those veterans who regularly stand in line to get an Apple product this may be nothing new...but it was a first for me and I was appalled. I finally bit the bullet and decided to head to the apple store early in the morning and stand in line for the Verizon 6+ 64GB iPhone I have wanted. After many times seeing stock online via the usual websites (including Apple.com) and being told time after time by store employees that they did not have them in stock despite what the website said. I could not order online for pickup as I wanted a phone full price and not on contract. So I headed over to an Apple store in New Hampshire and arrived at 9am for a 10am store opening to find that I was last in a line over about 90 people. Despite this I was still able to get a reservation for the iPhone 6+ VZ 64GB Grey iPhone. Despite being encouraged by the apple employees that I could leave and come back anytime that day I figured I would hang around and see what this was all about. After all I drove an hour to get here and nothing was open in the mall yet anyway. I expected that there would be some resellers in line trying to make a profit but didn't expect them all to be resellers! The cop was harassing/joking with the group in line. Joking about how he kicked some of them out a few days ago..These guys are lined up every day making about $10/hour to buy two devices each for one guy in charge. ALL OF THEM. After about 20-30 minutes the guy in charge comes over to me and clarify's that I am buying for myself, and only one device. Then he tells me I do not have to wait in the line..I told him the apple employee told me I did. He said she did not know the deal and he could take me to the front to get my phone right now. Since I had nothing to lose I went with him. We walked to the front. While we walked up front he told me all the guys in line worked for him and that demand was still high. When we got to the store he told the apple guy I was buying a phone for personal use and they could help me now. Which he did! I was shocked that this guy was in charge of the whole line and not Apple. So 90 or so people buying two devices each for resale and just about everyone that walks into an apple store during the day to buy one for themselves are told they do not have any. Even though at times they do but they are reserved for online sales or morning sales for these guys. The guy in charge of the line clearly knew the cops as well as the apple manager. Just seems like a situation ripe for corruption/kickbacks! Luckily I had some time to kill otherwise I would still be waiting to get one as I was not going to pay more than I already did for a full priced phone ! Is it always this bad?
