I don't follow various threads. I got my 6+ on launch day
I pre-ordered 6+ via sprint on 9/12. Got no updates, no tracking, no answers so canceled preorder on Tuesday this week and settled for 6 at sprint store. Went online on Thursday and saw that 2-3 stores in area had 6+. I returned 6 (cost me $35 restock) and then got the 6+ , 64gb
Amazing how the verizon iphone 6 plus 128gb is not available in any store in the united states
I was able to cancel my pre-order this afternoon. I have been studying the patterns of store shipments all week and every day at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. local time if any stores in the area do get a shipment in they will update the stock for online pickup and today at 2:00 p.m. I was able to see that four apple stores within an hour of my house showed available online and I had enough time to log online and cancel my pre-order, then wait for my eligibility to reset which took between 3-5 minutes, and then I still had time to place my order for pickup. Processing only took exactly 20 minutes and the phone was ready for pickup before I could even get to the apple store. You can find iphones without having to wait 3-4 weeks it just takes time and research and I never gave up until I found exactly what I was looking for (Verizon 6+ 128 Gb Space Grey) after passing up on some other configurations that were already available. I just wanted to share my success story because I myself was so very frustrated and it got to the point that it was personal. So to everyone out there frustrated don't give up it is possible to get the phone you want before November.
