I'd love to see the plans of the forum users here to try to get your hands on a new iPhone of your preferred finish and size. It'll help me perfect mine as well Here's what I've got so far: Since I can't make it to any stores, period, I'm ordering either from Verizon's website or Apple's Apple Store app (redundant, much) depending on what they have for lead times. I'll have my MacBook Pro refreshing Verizon's website and my iPad will be connected to a Bluetooth keyboard to type in details into the Apple Store app. I'll launch Apple Store at 12:01 as a new multitasking process (to get the Buy button available) and at the same time begin the ordering process on Verizon's website. If Apple's shipping times are 7-10 days, I'm trusting Verizon to ship it, as they guarantee it in 2 days (somehow) and putting all my energy into completing the order form for Verizon. Looking for a gold iPhone 5s, 16 GB!
