    Seriously? I just read this. My ATT store is obviously closed now, so I can't ask. But I was planning to get in line at 4 am. Like... now what? wait in line for hours and find out they have nothing? :(

    Are these rumors true?

    So happy that black is the only option!

    Makes it that much easier to get my preferred choice :D

    Same here, called the two local corp stores in my town in California, both only received Space Grey. Other colors you'd have to order and take some time.

    I really wanted to mix things up with a white or gold this time. I'm also going to use AT&T's Next yearly upgrade plan, so that means I have to get the phone at an AT&T store.

    I may just settle for Space Grey, since it at least looks a lot better than your standard phone. And if I'm going to upgrade in a year, to whatever the iPhone 6 is, might as well not get hooked on gold.

    No that's a lie just got back from my AT&T store to make sure everything is good to go for tomorrow and they are good for any and sizes. Why do people make this bs up every year?

    I will acknowledge that its possible that an AT&T store will get gold - but its more reasonable to believe you are a liar then - 50+ people are lying.

    I called 2 AT&T corp stores, and both of them were not ready to confirm anything about Gold.

    Good to know, I was considering checking out ship times on AT&T's website at midnight. I won't even bother now because I want a gold one!

    I didn't get a chance to see it, since the demo phone we got is the white one. I have a white 5, but might have to get the space gray since know one knows when the whites will arrive.

    ouch - Apple is so much gracious. Any chance that would be discounted for a business account?

    No discount. They put $35 restocking fee stickers right on the boxes for everyone to see.

    I actually wish Apple had the same policy. Pisses me off when I see companies being nice and people abusing return policies.

    Do you think they'll get a Gold shipment in the morning before they open?

    I find it hard to believe that there are some stores stating they will have all sizes and models available. It is of my opinion that these sales representatives just want to drive traffic into their stores, assuming they can convince people to purchase what they have on-hand, as that is what most people do after they've invested the time waiting in line.

    If you look around on multiple apple forums, feedback from all over the world is that silver, even more so gold, is heavily constrained with some Apple stores getting only 1-5 of the gold units overall.

    I can tell you with a 100% certainty, that third party resellers such as Walmart, Target, Best Buy etc did not get any gold at all and limited on larger capacity 5C colors with Yellow being the most constrained.

    Like anything, this may be subject to change as many stores receive their units via fedex/ups as opposed to their district distribution channels during the month of release to expedite their ability to meet demands,
