    I reserved my 16GB white/silver 5s :apple: at best buy on saturday. I got the email this morning saying that it was in. I drove down there and showed them my receipt and the guy said they already sold them all. I was like, "how are you gonna sell someones RESERVED phone?". The guy said that their system was down and they couldn't decided whose was whose. So after about 15-20 mins of searching, he came back and said they were out.... BUT thhat they were going to give me the only one they had left.

    Turns out the only one left was a 64 gig.. So they gave me that for the price of a 16! yee!:D

    Nice! Just for fun, what if he said they had two options: 64GB in Space Gray or Silver, or 32GB in gold? What would you have taken?

    Thats cool. Though you would hope if their site was down and they couldnt verify reservervations and pre-orders they would temporarily postpone sales, instead of just selling peoples phones to the first person coming along waving cash.

    ----------

    64gb silver for me. I like the gold but memory all the way.

    Reminds me of the old Steinfeld episode with the "reserved" car rental. Glad you made out big on that one.

    We'll they gave me a choice of space grey or silver and I went with silver... But, had they offered the 32 gold, I would have still taken my 64! :)
