    I just called every T-Mobile in my area of Dallas and Fort Worth, TX and every single one said the same thing.

    "We aren't receiving any iPhone 6 Pluses this Friday but can pre-order them for you and have them shipped to you I think sometime in October. We will be receiving a limited supply of iPhone 6s though"

    I asked several of them to confirm if all the T-Mobile stores in the area are in the same situation. They were very adamant in explaining that no store that they know of in the area is receiving any 6+ devices this Friday.

    That's pretty crazy if true... I could understand limited supply but to be receiving NONE in a huge metroplex like Dallas/Fort Worth is pretty surprising. :eek:

    All that means is that Apple retail stores will have plenty of supply. By plenty I mean at least a few hundred units per store, not a dozen or so as some people have suggested.

    If a guy at a T-Mobile said it, then it must be true. They are always they most informed about the entire launch process, and their word is gold.

    For example, a guy at a Verizon store was explaining to my sister that the iPhone 6 Plus comes with the new Apple Watch included. That's what the "Plus" stands for! :rolleyes:

    Yeah but I do find it a little convincing that every store manager I've spoken to has said the same thing. They've been very clear about no store in our area receiving the 6+ model and that they could only order those for the time being.

    I think the other poster nailed it... looks like the 6+ model will be available in Apple stores predominantly.

    I wonder what the case is for AT&T, Verizon, Sprint...

    I don't wanna waste my time going to a T-Mobile store since it's highly unlikely they'll have a 6+

    That would suck to wait in line and them tell you they don't have it lol

    I went into a T-Mobile store and they already have cases for the iPhone 6 but none for 6+. I guess its correct then that they won't have any or very few pluses.

    I debated last Friday when the T-Mobile/Apple sites didn't work to wait in line tomorrow for possibly getting a 6+ as it seemed like it might've been better ordering in the store (I went to the T-Mobile store on Preston and Park Blvd). Their systems were also down, so I just tried again online. Would've been really upset to wait in line for nothing.

    My buddy who works at a T-Mobile Store says his store just received a stock of about 30 iPhone 6. He doesn't know if any of them are the Plus

    I was told that same thing .

    30 iPhone 6. No 6+.
    10 of each kind (don't know if they meant 10 of each color for 16GB, or 10 of each memory for one color...)

    Both T-Mobile stores I went to only had about 20 iPhone 6 in stock... lol

    No Plus models but they gave out Free Next Day Shipping and guaranteed them by end of next week.. which I found very odd and probably BS

    No supply at carrier stores means exactly the opposite of what you said. If Apple didn't have enough phones for everyone, they would put their own flagship stores and other smaller company stores as priority for that limited number of phones available. They would rather drive customers to their own stores than carrier stores.

    Same here in Detroit. Stopped at the 10 mile and Greenfield store at 7:45am, store opened at 8am. Only 3 people in line. They only had iP6's in 64GB, all three colors. No Pluses, and no 16GB or 128GB. The store manager told me that no TMobile stores in the area would have any 6 pluses today, so don't bother going/calling every store around. Decided the plus would be too big for my liking anyways, so I walked out in 30 minutes with a Space Grey 64GB iP6. Perfect size, in my opinion. Pretty happy now...
