    Just picked up my new iPhone 6 plus and I absolutely love it! Wound up being first in line at my att store and they had 4 6 plus's. Got a 64gb white/silver! Screen is amazing and shockingly bug but after an hour of use its great! I was on the fence about going big but glad I did! Hope everyone gets what they were hoping for! Good luck !

    Thank you! Hope everyone gets what they wanted! Got an offer from someone in line to buy my plus. Only 4 plus were at my local att. Off to Apple store to try and get a leather case

    I love my iPhone 6+ as well. I like it far more than I couldve ever expected.

    Got mine as well! It's so big, but I thought it'd be bigger. Fits well in my hand and I can still one hand text with it!

    The size isn't as bad as I was expecting. Sadly, I still haven't actually used it yet. I started a restore at the Apple store and it said 4 hours. So, I took it home ... well, then I figured at why not just do it off the computer because it will be faster.

    Wrong, needs to download iOS 8 ... been going for 20 mins now and still has 28 minutes to go ... OUCH.

    I want to try it but having the Note 3 at one time and selling it makes me glad my local area doesn't have any to be found.

    I may still give it a shot though. Samsung's bloatware and TouchWiz interface drove me to selling it as well to tell the truth as I have now ditched the S5 I got afterwards. No more Samsungs!

    Yeah. that makes no sense, I would not even think they would run iOS 7.X. Are you sure it's an iPhone and not a Goophone or something?

    It's running 8. He's restoring it....for whatever reason, I'm not sure. To restore the phone, iTunes has to pull the OS down first, then it'll wipe the device and reinstall the software.

    Ya, I started off trying iCloud but it said it was going to take 4 hours. So I went home, and since I was home already and the iCloud restore was partially done ... it had to start over from the beginning. Which meant downloading iOS 8.0

    Yikes. BTW for future ref I've walked out of Apple stores mid-restore, driven home, and had the restore continue when it picked up wifi. Phone was hot as hell in the interim, but it did work.

    Awesome! I'm so glad that some of you are happy with your 6+. I got the 6, which is totally the right choice for me, but I hope everyone is happy with what they got. I'm getting really tired of all this comparing crap.

    Can't we all just be happy now and go back to hating on Samsung? :D :apple:

    I am on the fence about wether to keep my 6+, when it arrives, or go with the regular 6. Hope to run by Apple Store to see hold touch them. Congrats on your upgrade.

    No Regrets Pre-Ordering the Plus

    Have to say I had my concerns about pre-ordering the 6 Plus. Words from reviewers like "Humongous, Gigantic, Gargantuan" didn't help either. When the UPS guy finally showed up at 7:15 CST, I was ready to admit I had made a mistake once I opened the box, and held it in my hand. I could not have been more wrong. Love the screen size, the feel, the gorgeous display, and fantastic battery life. Would have been disappointed if I had gone with the 6.

    So glad I decided to go Big!!!
