    I started browsing this forum and saw that someone said you can just keep refreshing the apple store "Check Availability in your area" button around midnight local time and you'll have better luck.

    Has anyone besides the one person in that thread had luck with this? I cancelled my preorder (estimated delivery date OCTOBER 21-27) as there is a Apple Store about 10-15 minutes away from me.

    Basically go to the apple store around midnight, then keep refreshing periodically until an iphone 6 plus is available?

    Yes lots of people have had luck with this. I'm noticing the T-Mobile version is the hardest one to find. IF you are looking for ATT or VZW you'll have better luck.

    My carrier is Sprint, so hopefully I'll have some luck.

    I actually cancelled my preorder from att this morning and picked up my 128 gold 6+ 2 hrs ago. Definitely worth canceling.

    You dont refesh snything, just go to apple. Com and startbuying a new phone, watch the bottom of page for avail for pickup- put in your store... Sometime between 1 am and 5 am, you might see AVAIL FOR PICKUP

    If you see it, back out , cancel your other order and get right back on and buy it.

    I had a oct 20 ship date, fri night at 3am my local store showed avail
    9 am i had my phone - a 64 6 plus

    Watch the circle:

    Maybe. Today I was at the Apple store to return a case and they had no Sprint phones at all. They didn't get any delivered.

    I canceled my pre-order last night to reserve for pick-up at a store iStock indicated had the same available. By the time my cancellation was completed, however, that store didn't have it any longer, but a nearby one did. I selected a check-in time for this evening, but status is still "Processing". Hopefully it will be there when I arrive (fingers crossed)
