    I just cancelled my 6+ Silver 64 GB Verizon phone in-store pickup preorder through Apple.com. I'm hoping I can wait in line at my Apple/Verizon store for a Silver 64 GB 6. Anybody doing something similar?

    What made you chose to go with the 6 instead of the 6+?

    why not wait til you have the phone before calling to cancel your preorder.

    I have a preorder with apple that is not going to be arriving until about the 7th if I see an iphone instore between now and then I will be calling and canceling right before I buy in store.

    I imagine the fact that you can't bloody sit with such a huge phone in your pocket, but that doesn't seem to bother people so ... dunno.

    I made cardboard cutouts, and considering I have small hands, it was just too big for me, and made it have more drawbacks than spec benefits for me.

    ----------

    I bought the phone through an upgrade, so I want to make sure my upgrade has at least 48 hours to reset itself. Of course I will be calling Verizon to make sure it's ready by Friday.

    That's not really mean/snarky enough response for the forum.

    Can you please take a moment to trash the 6+ and talk down to the people who bought it like so many others have on the forum today? ;)

    p.s. glad you figured out which one was correct for you before too late!

    LOL honestly I still do want it a little bit, which is fine since it has nice features. But I know for me, I gotta go 6 and hope I can mutate my hands to be larger in the next 2 years to be prepared for iPhone 7+ :p. I think a 5 inch iPhone would be my perfect size, since the 6 seems a little small for me, and the 6+ seems a little too big for me, but the 6+ feels much bigger than the 6 feels much smaller, which is why I chose 6.

    I'm sure you'll be able to find a 6 in store.

    From the various talk, it seems like stores should have 2 lines, 6 and 6+ :) although I guess people could be buying both. It seems like the 6 inventory will be fine.

    Ditto this! The more cancellations, the more 6+ available for the rest of us waiting anxiously!

    I look forward to a two week trial with the 6+, so I can evaluate it. I have nothing to lose, because the 6 should be easy to get, if I decide to swap. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.:cool:

    Agreed. I'm doing the same thing. If I'm not satisfied it will probably be easier to get an iPhone 6 over the Plus due to the inventory.

    Actually, the time to make the cutouts was before the 12th so you order the phone you want. My wife and I spent a lot of time with our cardboard cutouts the day before pre-orders opened. We're both going for the 6 Plus. Of course if I measured wrong, I'll be on the divorce forums.

    Using the 14 day return period is a pretty good idea. I just didn't want to mess with my upgrade, and have to deal with hell returning my phone and trying to explain to Verizon that I didn't actually upgrade.

    I just realized that the OIS didn't necessarily matter to me, and didn't make enough of a difference for me to want it. Also, the 1080p screen was nice but not necessary for me, so the only thing I really valued was battery life. But battery life just didn't outweigh the size considering my small hands and that I use my phone one-handed all the time, plus the extra weight.

    YOu must be wearing the wrong pants….lol. I've been at work all day and I've had the 6 Plus leather case in my pocket the whole time and it has yet to be an issue. These pants will have the smallest/tightest pockets of anything I wear as well.

    I don't mess with skinny jeans...

    I really only wear jeans, and all of them are slim fit. One pair, which does have relatively larger front pockets than the others, I might fit the Plus, but I don't even want to see how it will look and feel once once I lift up my leg.

    Another one, which is Nudie Jeans, have short pockets, so the Plus would just stick out of the pocket.

    I have these two friends with Plus size phones, and every time they sit they take the phone out of their pockets and hold it in their hands. That's pretty much what I would have to do. That's ridiculous.

    So yeah, just the 6 for me.

    Well I don't have buyers remorse but I did pre-order and have to cancel so I am off to line up early in the AM. So I guess in that regard I am in the same boat as you.

    Hoping for a space grey 6. I'll take 64GB or 128GB.
