Has anyone managed to get their hands on an iPhone 5s.

I went to the apple store in Reading at about 7am this morning, 200m ish queue and told buy one of the staff they have no 5s's everyone is queuing for a 5c...

 

Gone back home and ordered online instead.

 

So was wondering if others have had the same issues? or if some people have managed to get one.

Yeah, I don't want to go on contract though, and a provider store like EE will only sell on contract.

Works out £200 more expensive over 24 months for me to go on contract.

Went into the Apple store this morning with my wife to get her an upgrade and they were all sold out. Said it would be 10 days before they got a grey one and 21 days before they got the white or gold. Said they did have a few 5C's but my wife didn't want one of them.

I waited in line at my local BestBuy at 6am. By the time the store opened at 8am there were about 15 people in line. Only color they had was the space grey, so I got it. I also bought the Green 5c for my wife.

Next to the 5s, who would?! $100 extra for better specs, a badass looking phone... It's a no brainer. I think Apple did themselves a favor here. They reduced manufacturing costs making it easier on them to support the existing platform while introducing their next phone lineup. Makes sense.

Personally there was no way I was going to get the C for me or my wife

I ordered one from Apple online store for my wife's birthday.  Hope the rumor that the T-Mobile ones being unlocked is true.  My receipt says its an unlocked phone, anyway.  Conflicting information online.  I'll just check the IMEI when it arrives I guess.

I have 2 weeks left on my Sprint contract, and then I'm jumping ship over to AT&T.  Hopefully they have the black/gray 5S in stock by then, so I don't have to spend any longer on this POS carrier.
