This person went through the line six times crossing off order numbers. In one day. I seriously doubt she needed six iPhones. Plus this woman was pregnant. Times are tough in Apple land.

Why are you following her all day taking creepy pictures??? You probably need to get some help soon.

Man, that sucks for the rest of us. Thanks for raising this issue. Apple needs to get the blue ink like they do in Iraq for voting. :)

Sucks for the rest of you "What".... according to him she went in line 6 times so are you so lazy you can't get in line one time to get a phone? How does her buying a phone affect you buying a phone?

I still vote for ID scans that go into a database so you can't purchase more than 2 per month after a launch

Honestly there would not be a shortage of iPhones if 1/4th of the launch day stock didn't get shipped overseas.

OP, what's your point again? Why does this thread even exist?
Didn't you know that people buy stuff in stores? With cash, or credit cards?
:rolleyes:

I needed 12 phones for my family members in Korea so I simply went to Best Buy and got 12 Verizon iPhone 6.
Needed a couple more for friends during my trip so went back a couple times for more.
Threw out the Verizon Sim card and it works on our carrier over there.
No line, no wait.
Nobody took my picture.

Stop taking pictures of people. That is just creepy and scary. You are on a path to becoming a serial killer.

Embarrassing! My family are Asian-Americans but we would never do this. My husband always like to say, "they're out to make a quick buck or two. It's how most Asians are." For me, it's about morals. I don't care how desperate people are,work extra hours and make that money if you have to.
Here I am a week later, no iPhones. I have checked the website everyday since launch day, really stinks. :roll eyes:

A pregnant woman stands in line, waits for her turn, and buys iPhones with her own money.

Call the police.

I really do not understand why people are in line still, I have walked into Best Buy to grab as many iPhone 6 is I wanted with no waiting and no lines. Just request the Verizon model, pay, walk out. It has never taken longer than five minutes for me.
Take out the Verizon Sim card before you turn it on though, works great with AT&T LTE and sims from Japan and Korea etc.

THIS, and there wouldn't be continued shortages
What shortages. I just went to apple.com and they have iPhone 6 for store pickup. Best Buy has lots of them. How are you not getting an iPhone 6? Are you waiting for it to show up at a Verizon store in a very small town?

I didn't know this! I've been waiting for the Apple store here to have some in stock. So, I can go to Best Buy and get one through VZ, remove the sim and get another sim?:eek:
