    I didn't see a poll for this and I would like to know what MR'ers are doing for the new iPhone launch? I'm still debating. Most likely I'll wait to order online and wait for it to be delivered. I think I'm just lazy, I don't like the hassle. Or maybe I'll walk in the next day and see if they are available.

    I'm going with white, not a fan of the space gray, and I think the white lends itself well to the new OS.

    I'm still trying to decide. Would prefer to walk in to a local VZW store on friday morning, but nervous about taking my chances and missing out all together.

    can you get contract-free/unlocked phones in-store? otherwise online.

    I think I'm going to just order online after reading the rumors about the supply constraints. I might check one of the stores around my house in the morning and then cancel the order if they are still in stock, although I'm not holding out much hope at this point.

    Here's a question, do you guys think I will have better luck ordering on the Apple website or the app? It would be a lot more convenient to set an alarm and then place the order from bed with express checkout but I'm worried it wont update as quickly as the website.

    I'll probably do the same, order it online first.
