Will Apple let you pickup an extra iPhone if you are in the reserve line?

    I have a 32GB black on reserve (new account), but my wife is wanting the white phone (upgrade to her existing iPhone), which as we all know is not available for reserve, but might be available in stores. Is there any chance that when I pickup my reserve the Apple Store will let me snag a white one for her, if available - or would they say I had to jump back in line with the plebes who didn't reserve?

    It was already stated that the white will not be available in the store on the apple website.

    I have the same issue. I'm ordering a phone for myself and starting a family plan. Obviously, I'd need two phones and I could only reserve one. When I talked to someone at the apple store yesterday they told me that if they have them then I can buy a limit of two.

    I called apple and they told me they can't refuse to sell you two. That's the limit. The reserve does say in the fine print that you aren't guarantied to get one.

    So...the OP called "people who did not reserve" plebes. His wife did not reserve a phone...and CJayC called his wife a plebe...

    seems pretty cut and dry to me. Maybe you should be trying to counsel the OP. For the record...I have no idea what that even means, and probably don't want to.

    I don't they should. Your wife didn't preorder and she is only benefiting from your reservation allthewhile there are hundreds of "plebes" standing outside waiting for their chance to buy one. Get to the back of line.

    I highly doubt they allow people who reserved to buy extra stock and take phones away from those who didnt.

    Then why is there a limit of two phones per person?

    I don't get how this works. Did they have two lines last year? Reserved vs People who wait in line? I'm curious how much of a hassle it will be to get two phones.

    Your wife should have to wait in the non reserve line so you don't screw someone out of a phone.
