    There's a ton of speculation here, but has anyone gotten any reliable information by calling their local apple store? Talked with a genius, has a buddy that's a genius, etc?

    What does their stock look like, what colors, GB variations, etc. Haven't seen any real information from Apple store employees at all...

    To me they just said 'we should have a fair amount of stock'.
    I still haven't decided on the colour anyway :D

    Last year my store had at least a 1000, more like 1500-2000 i would have guessed.

    The thing is..they did not do preorders. This does not mean there will be less in stores. I am guessing there will be 5x more available in stores now because they did not do preorders. They just did not have enough to do preorders...

    I was just told that they will have stock. No information on colors. Wouldn't tell me what a "reasonable" time to line up is. Wouldn't tell me if there was already a line.

    so lame! why do they have to be so weird with these releases! Yep, looks like 20 people are already out there... we should have plenty if you get here between XX and XX. Not hard. I have to assume Apple tells them to say absolutely nothing -- that's why we need someone with an inside connection!

    She just said "We don't know" and she also had an attitude, I felt like she was sick of hearing these kind of questions from people.

    I talked to someone who said that they had a ton of Space Gray phones but as far as white Verizon models they only had 4.

    My brother isn't allowed in the back of the house because he's a floor employee, but he was able to sneak a look when someone accidentally went in the back room and he said, and I quote "Holy ****, there's a lot of iPhones back there". He ten assured me I'd have no problem getting one tomorrow if I wait in line. However, he also mentioned not every Apple store gets the same amount. It ll depends on the demographic and all that jazz.

    S that's what I know. He can't give me specifics or he'll lose his job. Same with anyone else

    My brother-in-law's cousin does maintenance at an Apple store and he heard someone from the genius bar say they saw a bunch of boxes in the back.

    I know a monkey who went to college with a bellhop from a hotel that Steve Jobs once drove by, and he said they would have:

    SOME

    Take it to the bank folks. He's been right 100% of the time. He also throws his poop. How bad ass is that???

    Yet they are better than people who have no information spreading misinformation based on pure conjecture.

    And they are better than your useless post :cool:
