    I just got a 16GB White iPhone 5 from the Apple Store on Friday morning, all they had left was the white 16GB (AT&T) so I went ahead purchased it because I couldn't wait for a 32GB version. I'm kinda regretting it now because I really need the extra storage.

    Do any of you guys know if I can return it within the 14 days and get a 32GB version if they have one available?

    You can, but I believe there is a restocking fee.

    Yes, you can. I don't think the Apple Store charges restock fees, although other vendors do.

    No restocking fees here in Canada. Returned my 32GB Black locked the day after I bought my 5.

    My unlocked 32GB Black came in the mail on time :)

    Apple in the US does not charge a restocking fee. Some carriers who sell iPhones (such as AT&T) charge restocking fees if the box has been opened.

    Apple allows you 30 days for a return / exchange. They just need to have one in-stock to make your return / exchange.

    I had pre-ordered, but then returned it to get a different configuration. Since I bought it from the Apple website, they let me return it to the Apple Store for a refund on the spot. No hassle, no restocking fees.
