    There are lots of people ordering phones right now. They are doing so without having even touched one. I mean, they are not in the store yet, am I correct? I want to pick one up and hold it before I buy it.
    When will the be put on display at Apple stores?

    I expect they'll be sold out in store by the time you're able to touch one. You'll be able to check them out after the queues dissipate, but it'll almost certainly be a case of having to wait for a future shipment to purchase.

    Okay then. Thank you for your replies. That is what I thought but so many people were buying one I just wondered.

    They will not sell the display phones. My phones are working just fine, I don't mind another week or 3.;)

    I know - hence me saying that you'll be able to touch one (a display model)...but they'll be sold out of phones for purchase at that point. And you're certainly more patient than me. :)

    Will the carriers and stores like Best Buy also have display models on the 19th? My closest Apple store is about 45 minutes away, and I expect my Best Buy and the carriers to not be too crowded. Just want to look at them since I'm not due for an upgrade until January.

    When can we expect to walk into a store and buy a configuration of choice - December? January??

    No, I'm not. Couldn't/didn't wait. Bought 3 sight un seen iPhones today against all I've said.
    Weeks away from delivery though. :(
