    I have an iPhone 6 that should be in Indianapolis this evening. Will they let me pick it up, even if its the day before launch?

    I wasn't sure if there were specific rules.

    More than likely not. They are asked to hold them until tomorrow.

    No. They're under strict instructions from Apple.

    They likely have directions to hold them until launch day, so you likely won't be able to. That said, it doesn't hurt to call them up and ask the worst they can do is say no and you wasted a few minutes.

    UPS will not let me pick up my phone at the indianapolis facility however, I usually get UPS deliveries at 7-8PM, and I got them to hold it at my closer facility down south. I will be able to pick it up at 10:00 AM instead

    So its a win.

    Also, armed robbery is another option. If you break in you will have to find it yourself, put a pistol to one of the employees and they will take you right to it. Plan for police arrival within 5 minutes though.

    No. They will laugh at you. It may even result in yours being put at the "back of the truck" and delivered last.

    If you want to poke the bear and try to be cute go ahead, but it's crap like trying to weasel your phone early that ends up getting it mysteriously delayed.

    Just wait a few hours... sheesh.
