Who's getting up early Friday morning to reserve a phone? My employer says they'll start sometime between 6-7 am Eastern. Already getting flooded with chats from people who have a deeply discounted plan for 3-4 years ago who want a new phone but not a new plan. Sorry about your luck.
That's my plan. Verizon starts at 2 a.m. my time.

I'm not one to get in line for really anything. I am really considering the new iPhone plus. I'm going to wait and then go into Verizon and compare it with the Note 4. I've been waiting for a big iPhone for a while. I have an iPad mini with retina and I really like it a lot. I have it fired up on college football Saturdays.

My paycheck won't clear until 430am so I'll take my chances with what's left then. It probably means waiting another 3-weeks for a phone but I hope not.

The local Verizon store told me to show up there tomorrow at 8 a.m. to preorder, and the following Friday they WILL have an iPhone 6 for me.
I hope they're right. I don't know if I should trust them... haha

With the limited supply of 6 plus, I'm not sure. But I hope that's the case with AT&T.

I decided to set an alarm and order now instead of going to the store in the morning.

Ordering on Verizon.com was very easy.

I went with the space grey 16 GB iPhone 6.

Canada, eh?
I just woke up and my employers website is currently down. Not sure if it went live at 6am like it was supposed to and it crashed recently. I'm sure I'll find out when I go into work today. Guess I had better rest up.

Gonna be a long 3 weeks. :confused:

I'll probably swing by the apple store before then to get an up close look at the phone. I suppose I got lucky, the order process was relatively trouble free, I got the color I want in the capacity I want, and some plus buyers are going to have to wait two months.

Find something else to keep your mind occupied.
While I was waiting for my last guitar to get here, I rebuilt one of my old ones.
It helped a lot.

I guess you can't rebuild an old phone, but there must be a project you've been putting off.
