    Hi everyone, I am from Mexico and next week I will go to Columbus Ohio and my friend will go to NYC, we only will stay for 3 days, we do not have much time (business travel). I want to buy an iPhone 5S Gold.

    So where do you think will be easier to buy it?

    Do I still get in line to buy it, or just enter to the store and pay it? Or I give the money to my friend to buy it at NYC?

    I am a little worry about it because both we do not have much time to get lines!!!

    Thank you in advance.

    I got the link off of CNet however it doesn't hurt calling individual stores...Call the Manhattan store to see if they have availability..

    It depends on the color you are looking for. Space Grey is the easiest to find. I checked the stock checker and the NYC stores are showing lots of stock.

    14th street — 64GB space grey
    Grand Central — 32GB and 64GB space grey
    Soho — 64GB space grey

    If you are looking for gold or silver you will have to get to an Apple Store very early and wait in line.

    I arrive at the Apple Store 14th street at 5am and waited in line for 4 hours. I got an unlocked 64GB 5s in Gold.

    ----------

    The site is very accurate. Apple updates stock around these times eastern:

    2:30am
    2-2:30pm
    6-6:30pm

    Usually seeing the biggest stock updates Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

    Gold ones are still in high demand. It's unlikely you'll be able to buy one as a walk-in unless you happen to know the store manager well.

    If you want gold either you or your friend get to the store several hours before they open and wait in line.
