    Does anyone know what sizes the T-Mobile B&M stores are going to carry for the 6 and 6 plus? Last year they only carried 16GB variants, but I read somewhere they will be carrying all models and variants.

    Anyone know the validity of this statement?

    No T-Mobile store in my entire area is getting any 6+... only the 6
    They all made this very clear to me when I asked.

    As for storage size, no clue but I'm assuming the abundance will be 16gb

    I asked the manager of my local T-Mobile store and he said they won't know until they get the phones and unpack them to scan them in. He couldn't even tell me how many they were getting in.

    Local store manager said that they were originally supposed to get at least 1 of every model 6/6+ (high volume store in a wealthy area).

    He has since been informed that all 6+ inventory was cancelled for his store due to larger than expected preorder sales.

    Code for: All of us employees are getting them before the customer.

    Just called 6 T-Mobile stores. A few said that they don't know what they'll be getting until their deliveries are made later today or early tomorrow morning. A few actually said that they more than likely won't be getting any 6 Pluses because they're being used to fulfill pre-orders...

    Called the same T-Mobile stores again. They all got deliveries but only got between 5 and 10 phones. None got the Plus I think.

    I think it may be for security reasons, so that people don't know exactly what they're getting if they decided to rob the place.

    Only one of the stores that I called did they say that they weren't able to disclose the exact amount, but I was told that they didn't have any iPhone 6 Pluses.

    I still don't know if it's worth trying a T-Mobile store or an Apple store at this point.

    I just called the one T-Mobile store still open, and they guaranteed they would be open as first-come, first-serve, but would not have any iPhone 6 Plus models. I'm going to assume that's the same for every other store, too. Worth the risk, right?

    None of the Tmobiles in my area will have the 6 Plus. The kiosks will the 6 at some point during the day but not at opening and the corporate stores will have the 6 at opening.

    I laughed so hard at that response I spit my beer on the screen.

    Wow.

    1 - They have way more valuable inventory in the store already. And cash.

    2 - A stolen iphone will be blacklisted so fast...

    3 - You really think people would be robbing a store based on a phone inventory?

    Wow

    Wow

    1. You're saying the iPhone 6, priced between $649 and $849, is less valuable than other devices offered at the stores? Hmm...
    2. Robbers typically aren't the brightest
    3. Well, yeah... How else would they know what they might be able to grab?
