    It's 3:01 eastern and you're about to click the purchase button.

    What delivery window will have you going through with the order instead of trying to get one at B&M stores tomorrow?

    If I see 3-5 days (or even 5-7) I'm clicking. If I see 7-10 I might gamble.

    What's your plan?

    I keep going back and forth on this one. I'm in a bad position, sold my iPhone 5 about 3 weeks ago and the phone I'm using now is abysmal. Not sure I can even wait 3-5 days. My thinking is, by the time I get the iPhone (assuming ship time is 3-5 days) it will be a week or so before I have it in my hands. If I go wait in line, I have a good shot at securing one now. I'll prob end up heading out and waiting in line. I can't wait a week or so. Good luck to u in whatever option u end up choosing to persue.

    if its not 24 hours im going to a store that very moment (yes 3AM)

    worst case, i dont get what i want at the store, come home, and just deal with it. 5-7 days seems to be the average in every other country even after hours have passed.

    By the time you get back home ship times will be in October just like in Europe.

    That sounds about right. I am tempted to to to the store if the order isn't already processing and uncancellable by my lunch break.

    don't really care here i'd rather wait 15 days.. I have better things to do then wait in a line.

    apple store UK still shows 7-10 days. and it's been showing that for hours.


    I can always just buy it on my phone anyways, not wait til i get home.
