    Okay, so this may be a dumb question but I'm going to ask it anyway.

    I am expecting an iPhone 6 Plus through AT&T(not sure if that detail matters or not) within the next two weeks or so or whenever. I ordered it in space gray/black. Let's say I get the phone and I decide I like the way the silver/white looks better. Would I be able to go to the Apple Store and switch mine for one of another color?

    If this has already been asked I apologize but I checked through several pages already and I did not see anybody else asking and I do not feel like scrolling through more form pages.

    Varies from store to store, but you'd have better chances if your first phone is still sealed in the box.

    That makes sense. I am asking because I preferred both my 4 and my 5 in white. But I decided to be adventurous and go with the black/space gray on the 6 Plus and now I have my doubts/regrets. I may just leave the box closed and drive straight to the Apple Store with it and see if they will let me exchange it for another it for silver/white. I just have a feeling that I will prefer the white still over the black.

    In the meantime I will go to the Apple Store and take a look at both of them before I make a decision. After all I still have about two weeks to decide before mine even arrives haha

    Your gut is telling you to get the white. Go with your gut, or you probably will not be happy. You can't go wrong with either color.

    That's what I'm thinking too. I feel like I will like the white more for sure. Now I just hope they will let me exchange it for white. Thank you both you guys for your input!!

    Keep in mind... The email saying your phone is ready for pickup says you can change your color and/or storage capacities pending phone availability.

    I tried to swap my 6 silver for a 6 space grey unsuccessfully because my Apple Store worker said I would have to stand in the non-preorder pick up line, which was hours long. I would have mentioned the email, but I didn't read it fully before leaving with my silver. I plan on exchanging it soon.

    Ahh that was the scenario that I was fearing!! But I guess once you made it through the line you would be able to change it out for another color huh?

    Sadly there will be no email telling me I can come pick up my phone, as it's being shipped straight to my sisters address(I don't trust the mail lady at my apt complex).

    So I guess I'm stuck getting it and waiting in line to exchange it. But at least in about 2 weeks when I get mine maybe there will not be that much of a line for doing such a thing
