This is driving me crazy. I am so pissed off at apple for dropping the ball on this. When u introduce a new connector for the hottest device on the planet, you better make damn sure u produce enough cables & adapters. There is no reason for it.

You can also order from Apple.com and get them within 2 days. (regardless of the shipping estimate..mine said mid-october, and I got them last Tuesday).

And I bought 4 at my local Apple Store last Sunday. They had tons.

You do get a free one with the phone, just carry it with you in the bag at all times?

Also, I couldn't find them locally, ordered it online and it came within 2 days.

Try to order on Apple.com but choose local store pickup. From there you can see the inventory status of your local Apple stores. I just bought one on Saturday at Apple Store Arrowhead in Glendale, AZ.

Yup. I ordered extra that was originally slated to deliver between 10/17 and 10/24. It's on the truck for delivery right now.

Did you try any of the carriers that have stores in your area?
I did try a local VZW store. And as of Saturday they hadn't received a single cable since launch. Same with best buy. Guy told me they ordered 500 cables, and 500 adapters and not a single one of either had come in. Appl was the only place they said they come in on a reg basis.

I walked into a local Apple Store on a busy Friday night and they had loads of them. (We're talking over 100 easily.)

Grabbed one and was out in less than 2 minutes! :)

I wish they would deliver some to Best Buy already. This stupid cable nonsense plus the map debacle is a special combination of awful.
