    It seems that the iPhone 6 has a huge supply. And in Canada you can still make a reservation and pick it up in store on Sept 19th.

    However on Craigslist and Kijiji there are people who are evening paying $100+ over retail for these phones.

    Why pay a markup when you can just buy it yourself in store, or get it in 7-10 days when you order from Apple.ca store.

    Makes no sense.

    They are not available on Apple.com. All models are 7-10 days out.

    If you can't wait until November, then some people may want to pay a little bit of a markup to get it now.

    for now it looks like if you aren't getting it next Friday, then you're getting it sometime in October. As for November-December and on, who knows...

    Lol and please shed light as to how you're doing this without camping out?

    In canada there is an option to reserve and pick it up in store. You pick an hour and location.

    Does it still allow for pickup on the 19th? If not, that's likely why.

    ...on the Apple website. You won't have to camp out if you reserve it for pickup.

    Possibly overseas buyers living in a country where it isn't available yet. A lot of eBay sellers offer worldwide shipping.

    UK network provider O2 just happily stuck an extra £80 on top of the handset price :D

    Shady as all hell.

    Is that before or after taxes? Also, how much is sales tax?
