    Anyone have any luck getting a jet black iPhone 7 plus through the iPhone program? They never have any stock at 12:01 a.m. I've been in contact with apple care since preorder day and got an email last Friday saying that they would have the phone for me by the 26th but that was almost a week ago with no update.

    Furthermore, if I get the phone on the 26th that will be one day past my monthly charge for the program so I'll have made 13 payments instead of 12. Apple said they would give me a gift card for the amount paid for the 13th payment but that is a hassle.

    Dear "Name"

    We're pleased to let you know that you'll be able to pick up your new Jet Black 256GB iPhone 7 Plus with Verizon at Apple Kenwood Towne Centre on Saturday, September 24 during store hours. Please note that due to high demand your new iPhone will only be available for pick up until close of business the following day.

    When you arrive at the Apple Store, check in with a Specialist and ask to speak to a Manager. Bring this email with you and let the Manager know that you're part of the iPhone Upgrade Program.

    Please note if you have made your 13th monthly payment on your original iPhone Upgrade Program within the past 30 days, a prorated credit will appear on your card within 30 days from the time you upgrade to a new iPhone.

    Thank you for being part of the iPhone Upgrade Program. We appreciate your patience, and look forward to welcoming you at the Apple Store.

    Sincerely,
    Apple Support "

    I got my E-mail this morning 24th for pick-up on the 24th. It was Tagged at 3:17 am EST. You don't really see the manager like it says in the E-mail. You just goto the iPhone line. Maybe your store reservations are full for today? They had mine in back with my name on it. If you don't pick-up in the time allotted, it gets released for someone else. That's where some of the 12:01 am phones come from. They were surprised that I was getting a Jet Black one since there so hard to come by.
