I pre-ordered 7+ 128 jet black on day off. Confirmation email says deliver by 10-5, but when I check order status says 9-23. Anyway, have not received any confirmation today. I know I still have to wait it out.
But, I want to let everyone know who is still waiting for their 7's or 7+'s in all colors but jet black to check realtime inventory at Apple. The site is www.istocknow.com I've been monitoring this site since last week and could have ordered any color of 7 and 7 plus other than jet black, then picked it up at my nearest Apple Store. You can browse by the map you can even see Europe which had some jet black 7 and 7plus which annoyed the heck out of me. If I saw a jet black 7 + in America which I have not, and not in my state of residence, I would have ordered for pickup, got confirmation, then called the store and have them just ship it to me. Then cancel my Verizon order which still is in non complete state technically.
Not all phones will be in stock when you check even though the map might say. But when you click pick up at store it will be green which is in stock. I could have bought five or six at various different times. But I really love that jet black.
Anway I hope this helps others who want their phones right now, other then jet black. Apple has them and we don't. I remember reading about how the iPhone sale pre-orders went, being up at Sprint and T-mobile when it came to the president of Verizon it was business as usual. Now I know why they are so behind.
