    I want to get one with T-Mobile because they have an awesome trade in promotion and very good coverage in my area. I have to get it through the T-mobile store because of the financing and trade in however.

    I want to purchase the 64 GB Silver 6 Plus model.

    Would the best course of action be to wait at a T-Mobile store on Friday morning? Or should I just preorder one online right now? My research tells me it could be into late October if I preordered now, and I am more inclined to take things into my own hands and reach out to stores to get one sooner than that (after it launches of course).

    What are your thoughts?

    Wait in line at the store first, if no luck, then preorder.

    Do you have any inkling as to when it may be available in stores?

    November.

    Seriously, just wait outside and hope to get lucky or you're going to wait. The 6+ is in limited quantities and you missed the boat on pre-ordering.

    If I preorder now, and later find one in a store, can I cancel the preorder with T-Mobile?

    I/they don't. Due to demand (and over pre ordering) for the + they won't have them for walk-ins. Go in, preorder with a rep and get your estimated date. Seriously Im letting you know its the best way at this point.

    If it were the regular 6 you will be fine getting that in store launch day

    Head to a casino because scoring a Plus on release day withough preordering already will be a crapshoot anyways.

    Believe me or don't I don't care Im just trying to help this guy get his phone asap. I just know TMO won't have 6+ for walk-ins however they will have the 6.I have no reason to lie since I ordered mine from a different carrier at midnight launch night.

    There is no chance you will get a Plus at the T-Mobile store, much less anything over 16GB. It is common knowledge that their stores only carry 16GB models and that you have to special order the higher capacities. The only T-Mobile phone you can get at the Apple store is the full price version, so I'm afraid you are pretty much hosed at this point. You will just have to order online or in the store and wait it out.

    You can try waiting in line at T-Mobile, who knows, you might get lucky.

    Order in store so a tleast a few reps can get commission out of the 4m that didn't.

    Most of my experience with buying iPhones from T-Mobile is they only carry the base configurations. When I went to purchase a 5s several months after launch they only carried the 16gb but offered to have a 32gb shipped to my house.

    I wouldn't bank on being able to find a 6+ 64gb in store and if by chance they DO get them I bet the supply is single digits.

    Again.. I just called my local radio shack, I could get a 128GB iPhone 6+ on launch day no problem. He said they still have quite a few of their allotment available. This is pretty common at Radio Shacks across the country.

    Seriously... if you want a iPhone 6+ on Launch day...
    Call Radio Shack

    But I thought you can not do the installment payment plan and trade in anywhere but a t-mobile store?

    Radio Shack can fully sign and service for all major carriers I believe. It might be wise to at least call them and ask...

    Yes. As long as the preorder has not shipped. Preorder from the Apple store. The only time people really run into problems with this is when the preorder locks up a carrier subsidy, but TMobile doesn't do subsidies so you should be fine. Definitely preorder now as the queues will only get longer. Apple tends to be cautious with their estimates so you might even get it early.
