Have any carriers gotten any in-store stock of gold?

    Everyone sold out after Friday. Is it reasonable to expect local stores to stock old any time soon or should I just hold my breath?

    Don't you think it would be easier to check locally at your stores? How do you expect anyone here to tell you what the stock is.

    Well I'm just asking in general. Im seeing people have their phones shipped after online orders, but not many stories about people picking up golds from non-Apple stores after the Friday frenzy.

    To me, it kind of seems like the local non-Apple stores are getting the short-end of the stick, but that might because all my local Sprints haven't gotten jack.

    Don't order from Sprint! I saw on a couple of other forums that people that ordered through them are getting 4 to 6 week wait times, because they sent all of their stock to the stores and held none back for online/telesales.

    If you're getting one for Sprint, try an Apple store or order through Apple.

    I always do, anyway…..Sprint always screws up shipping stuff.

    I didn't bother even bother to check the Sprint stores downtown. LOL

    I bought an AT&T gold 16GB at the Mission Viejo Mall yesterday and they have silver and gold today. Just talked to them a 1/2 hour ago.

    I'll be buying two iPhones. The second one isn't eligible for an upgrade yet, but my wife wants to sign up for the One Up program. You can only sign up for the One Up program AT a Sprint store.

    OK, so they're not shutting out chain stores. Thanks for the info.

    Thanks for the info. I was thinking of scooping one up in LA since I'll be in the area tomorrow, but I guess not. Good looking out.
