    stock in stores must be great cause I walked in and got a black 7 plus easily. Kinda crap for those waiting for preorders. Had no plans to upgrade but couldn't resist.

    Anyone with preorders I would check local store and maybe cancel preorder?

    Does it hiss? Just wondering since it has so much attention now...

    I had no interest in jet black. Don't want to wear gloves to handle my phone.

    I have a 128GB 7+ black on pre-order and it hasn't been shipped yet. I care.

    Check local and call apple on what to do. There has to be a way.

    seems like there are a lot of the 32gb MB models available in stores. The 128/256 are the more sought after models. It's not impossible to get a higher store model but more difficult than the 32

    Start checking this site around 11:55pm tonight ... http://www.istocknow.com/live/

    Worked for me. Reserved one for pickup today as soon as I saw one become available at a store near me.

    I have checked everyday, several times a day, for the model I ordered. Its never been in stock at any store within 5 hours driving time from me (7 Plus, Black, 256GB). I'm stuck waiting on my pre-order.

    And check your local Target store as well. Not many people are thinking about Target, and you might be pleasantly surprised - as I was.

    128. Considered the 32 as they had one as well. But figured just in case.

    I did the same. Had a preorder that ended up saying I would get around October 10-24. Checked online with my local Apple Store and was able to reserve one. Cancelled my order and was able to walk out of the store with one. Didn't have black at my store though. Went with gold. 32gb

    Awesome! You mention you wasn't planning on upgrading... What phone are you upgrading from?

    I still don't understand why Apple ships them to stores instead of fulfilling preorders.

    None today at my local Apple, usually they have at least some available.

    They said they might get some later in the day, that is a crapshoot though.

    I have 6. I woke up to order on launch night and changed my mind on the last screen. I agree, I feel like orders should be fulfilled first.

    Has anyone checked radio shack. I haven't heard them mentioned at all. They also sell phones I believe. I got my iPhone 6 Plus from there when it released.

    Same...refreshing all day. Arizona has totally sucked for getting stock in stores compared with other areas.

    Wouldn't they be Sprint only now?

    Not a bad option for those on Sprint, I suppose.
