    Stupid, why didn’t Apple plan accordingly? Simply supply and demand. Why not make a ton of phones and ship them out in masses, or just make a ton for the online orders? Seems like poor management, especially for its 5th installment of the phone. Like did they NOT see or expect this demand coming?

      exactly…supply and demand. If there is a ton of them available, it isn’t as ‘cool’ to get it the day of. Don’t speak of things unless you understand. You act like because they aren’t available, people won’t buy them. That’s completely incorrect – shipping is up to 3-4 weeks on apple’s site because people will WAIT for it.

      Judging by your use of “like” to start a sentence, I don’t think you understand supply and demand. They are trying to control the market, not flood the market.

      THE REASON THEY DO THAT IS BECUASE THEY WANT YOU TO WAIT………THEY WAIT FOR THE ORDERS KEEP ON GOING UNTIL THEY REACH THE AMOUNT IN 2 TO 3 WEEKS……AND PEOPLE WANT IT BEFORE THE TIME……so they want people to crack and buy the 64 gb iphone instead of 16…………..and apple has 2 ship the phone to more then a hundred apple stores or 1000s idk how many stores there are…but ya thats how they get rich………….but thats why the galaxy is getting popular then apple cuz they dont make you wait so long

    This reporter is based on mere heresay, they are basing their info on second-hand sources. This is poor reporting. Based on Apple’s history with retailers, most are likely to have a stock on hand for it’s early preordered customers, while most expect it to take time to come in. Best Buy, Radio Shack and Wal-Mart all took preorders, but Sprint stores sold their devices online. In fact Sprint isn’t even allowed to take preorders in its stores, but some are doing so against the will of the company anyway. I know this is happening in Toledo. Stock will also be more readily available to those who actually did preorder at stores, and took the time to get off the couch and computer. Only a mere 40 to 50 on preorder day ordered iPhones at San Fan’s Best Buy location.

    Radio Shack will not be handing out iPhone 5 to pre-order people tomorrow. Watch the fireworks as they only will sell phones to people walking in off the street. They are delaying delivery for one week to the pre-order people.

      The RadioShack I went to said I’d have to come in at the end of the day to see if any phones are still left over from the preorders

    I preordered at Best Buy a few minutes after they opened Friday, I was the 1st preorder at my store. Just got an email that it’ll be about 28 days until I get my phone, so that’s my best buy experience.

    Pre-ordered mine through RadioShack. Same store I’ve done all my cell needs since the bag phone. Big RadioShack screwed all customers as did Apple. No phone yesterday or today. All that pre order signing BS and down payment. Screw them. Seriously thinking of ending my apple experience. Get rid of iPhone and iPad, move on to something else. This store only pre ordered 4 phones and the couldn’t do that.
