It's been 61 days since the iPhone SE came out and still out of stock at my Apple Store. I cannot wait any longer and I don't want a 6/6S.

Can I get a new or refurbished iPhone 5S at the Apple Store?

Just think how long ago you would have had an SE if you had ordered one from Apple 61 days ago. I'm sure there is a good one, but what's the reason you need to get one in person? By the way, what carrier/color/size are you looking for?

iPhone Trade-Up program is in store only.

No, Apple quit selling the 5s when they released the SE. But there are plenty of 5s iPhones available on Amazon.com and eBay. Some are even new and unlocked. I've purchased from Amazon before and have always gotten a good deal - and Amazon guarantees the purchase.

got that nomadic lifestyle
Walmart has the 16GB 5s for $149. It is a Straight Talk phone, so you might have to pay a little more to unlock it to use on other networks. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Apple-iPhone-5S-16GB-4G-LTE-Prepaid-Smartphone/50285046
if they're willing to go with 16GB version anyway, then Straight Talk's policy might stop him. if it hasn't changed, they would need to have had their Straight Talk (TracFone) service for at least 12 months and currently active for the handset to be eligible to be unlocked. I'm not certain prepaid phones can be purchased for more to be unlocked like subsidized phones can.
