My parents and I have 5s's and we wanted to switch to Verizon Edge, and in order to we had to upgrade our phones now. I'm getting the 6 Plus but it's not shipping for another month!! Was told it would ship by November 14. That's crazy. Still taking a long time to ship. :(

Crazy yes, but demand dictates the long waiting times. I don't have my 6+ yet either.

There are many like you. 6 Plus' demand is pretty high and the supply is low.

This supply issue happens after every Apple new release, it will pass. With the 5s... It was the gold model people where looking for. After a couple of months, it will return to normal. I've had success with preordering .. I've been lucky and received my phones on launch day. My daughter went into a Sprint store Sunday and got the 6 plus, I was surprised, but it does happen. You've just got to keep looking or order online.

Where have you been? Many of us ordered within the first hour of launch on 09/12 and are still waiting upwards of over a month (and continue to wait). Look at the bright side, maybe you'll get your phone gift wrapped just in time for Christmas. ;)

For some reason we weren't able to check if we were eligible for Verizon Edge until now. We weren't even planning on upgrading this year, haha.

That's about the date I expect the factory unlocked 6 from Apple with no connection to ATT, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile. The wait is exhausting.
