Who is sitting out? I am!

I got tired of fighting the phone lines and preordering.  After the hassle of getting through my hopes would vanish day after day seeing the shlipping date slip.  I finally smarten up and started sitting out.  I load my iPad with 4-5 movies I haven't seen before, grab some snacks, and head to my local Verizon after work on Thursday (430 pm). I'm the first in line and I always get a phone at 8 am when the store opens, my choice.  Once the doors open, the line goes around the building.

I am not waiting overnight but will be there early in the morning. This started this when I preordered an iPhone one year, took the day off so I would be home for it and it wasn't delivered until after 8pm that night. I would rather wait outside the store even if there is no guarantee what will be available.

The could work unless you want a Jet Black model because that model probably not be available in store on launch day unless it is a really huge store that sells a ton of phones.

This is so true...last year the store I was at did not have any of the Plus phones and were extremely limited with a few of the color/size options as well. I have no interest in the jet black so am hoping they at least have both sizes with a variety of colors so that I have options.

I am a patient person and doesn't bother me if  I have to wait an extra week or 2 for my 7 plus. When I got my 6 plus 2 years ago I got lucky and the day after it's launch I checked the apple website and there were apple stores near me that had some in stock so I placed my order online to pick up at the Apple Store and got it that day.

I am going to be sitting out for the first time. I am in the Rochester, NY area. Is anyone around here that can tell me around what time i should start sitting at the Verizon Store?

Apple won’t have any iPhone 7 Plus models for sale in stores on Friday - Recode

While the iPhone 7 Plus is completely sold out, Apple said its stores will have limited quantities of the iPhone 7 in all colors except jet black, which is also sold out.

That is correct.  They have confirmed that Jet Black and ALL Plus models will not be available in the store on launch day.
