    Weigh in on what you think , is there a possibility of gold 5s for Monday morning ?

    So camping outside the Apple store since 10 PM (first in line now, so will be first Monday morning), and looking to exchange my 4 Space Grey's for Gold.

    I know it's a gamble, and learned today (Sunday) they had 3 Gold available in the morning, and wagering there just MIGHT be a chance of a few Gold tomorrow morning.

    This is the Santa Monica store ... one of the biggest stores in Socal. Keeping fingers crossed for returns or tickets that weren't redeemed same day for Gold (idiots trying to resell the tickets and unable to find a buyer in time before 8pm, when the voucher/ticket expires)

    Tell me I will be able to snag Gold tomorrow.

    I promise high-def pictures of the elusive Gold if I get them.

    Think of all the productive things you could be doing, instead of waiting in line for a phone -- or more precisely, a particular color of phone.

    All I can see and think about is Gold. It is on my mind.

    You might as well plan to stay another day. Apple Stores do not receive shipments on sunday. Probably later in the day on Monday. Won't be placed in the system until monday night.

    Um, place an online order. Have it shipped to you. Seriously.

    Then you can get some sleep. Learn some programming or whatever it is you study. Most importantly, prepare yourself a nice healthy meal, then have some tea before sleep.

    Don't waste time standing around a store, it is so wasteful. The phone will come. It will come.

    Unbelievable. If our forefathers read what you just said, they would never stop vomiting.


    But sure. If you consider it worth your time, do it.

    Did I forget to mention that a friend of a friend knows some people back in Russia that want to buy gold immediately for 2 K for the 16 GB model.. and 3 K for the 64 GB ?

    I'm not THAT MUCH of a fanboy :)

    Wait, you just posed on a forum that you're camping at a specific Apple store with 4 iPhones in your possession? Really?

    At least he didn't post a photo of his face or himself holding the 4 iPhones. :p

    Good luck. I hope you find the Gold. :)

    That is my word of the day today. I hope you haven't updated because you're playing with something gold (and not the Austin Powers kind).

    People like you really annoy the hell out of me. Millions of us are struggling to even get a hold of any color and here you are with 4 phones, wanting to exchange them.

    At least he isn't camping for the iPhone 6 yet, lol. Ya know, Apple might as well just start providing modern camping facilites at each store, with utility hookups and restrooms and everything. Would be an extra revenue source even. New iCamp facilities are revolutionary!

    Who are the millions struggling to get a hold ?

    I was there earlier and they had Space Grey, 16, 32, and 64 GB models at the Santa Monica Store, though it shows unavailable for pickup for almost all models except a single Sprint model/size.

    No gold, no silver, and trying to bribe an employee for info when shipment arrives.

    NO gold, no silver.

    So first you talk about how badly you want Gold, then after you get flamed you talk about only getting it to sell it?

    Um ... I want Gold badly because I want to sell it, I didn't say anything inconsistent, I didn't say I wanted it for personal use anywhere.

    If some oligarch's daughter is giving me 3,000 for one, who'd say no to that ?
