To those that read my previous thread but I had my phone on order. Well I noticed on Wednesday that the Sherman Oaks Apple Store received a shipment at 4 PM.
Well the following day I decided to show up at 4 PM right before school and I walked up to the line and ask the specialist if they had a Att 64 GB iPhone 6 Plus Silver and to my surprise... That's all they had!!!!

So waited in line for an hour... was 15 minutes late to school but SO worth it!!!!

This phone is perfection!

At least in Southern Cal, another option is Costco - if you are member. They have limited selection, but they carried a few 6+ for Verizon and ATT last week.

hey, New Yorkers!... here's how I bought online and picked up 4 hours later:

yeah, I was checking twice a day EVERY day since the first day when the line was something like 20 blocks north from the Fifth Ave store (I didn't have enough cash then)

I didn't want a delivery; what I wanted was (almost) immediate buy (for various reasons); and of course every day since launch I had been upset because not a single store in the tri-state ever showed ANY 6+ 128GB space greys for AT&T

on the night the iPad Air 2 was supposed to be made available, I was checking online for it every 5 mins from midnight on…

at roughly 4 or 5 am, I decided just for fun to check for the AT&T 6+ 128GB space grey once again, and TWO stores HAD THEM: 14th St and Soho

the 14th St store sold out all stock in about four minutes, but I managed to change my order and submit for Soho store and BAM, SUCCESS!

moral being: just get up at 4am, pound the online store every 5 mins or so, and you might get lucky and catch that 5 minute window where a few show up around 5am, 5:30...

oh, and when I showed up at the Soho store at 9am when they opened, I walked in, they brought it out, and some really friendly dude activated EVERYthing in under 4 MINS! Transferring my phone # COMPLETELY over from my 4S took I-kid-you-not about 6 seconds...

Apple still has it where it counts.

Yea looks like Apple store did receive a huge batch yesterday after the launch in China. The apple store in my area (Madison, WI) was empty till yesterday then people started coming in. But I snagged a silver 6 Plus Verizon 128 GB model yesterday.

Went back to Apple store this morning, most online site showed nothing for the Space Gray but Apple store did have them in stock so I exchanged my silver to space gray 128 GB Verizon model. So far I like the SG.
