Re: iPhone 7 Shipping Courier

It could be any carrier really. They just pick one whenever it ships. Now I know for warranty and insurance replacement devices there isn't any signature required. For new activations and upgrades, I think it's the same thing.

New iphone

Do stores typically have a stock supply of the new phones that they get?

Re: New iphone

I know for the three stores in my hood they did have stock every year.  I am guessing yes for this year.

Re: New iphone

AT&T store stock is usually somewhat limited for the first few weeks.  All colors and capacities may not be available.


Jet Back in anything or Black in the Plus or 128/256GB may be tough to find.

Re: iPhone 7 factory unlock

How long would it take to reset my upgrade eligibility with AT&T if I cancel my Apple.com preorder for an iPhone?

Re: iPhone 7 factory unlock

It's time to start thinking and planning ahead.  Historically,  AT&T has shipped new iPhones via UPS (in my area) and they have been shipped with no signature required.  With this in mind, there have been known cases of thieves following UPS trucks around on launch day and grabbing new iPhones off doorsteps, so if you have ordered a new iPhone, I suggest they you plan to have someone present to get your phone when it is delivered.  Either way, what matters is that AT&T ships without a signature required regardless of the shipping company.


I dont see any reason for things to be any different this year from previous years, so you may want to think about your delivery schedules...

Re: New iphone

As others have said, new colors are usually the first to sell out.  Also the lowest 2 storage capacities tend to sell out before the highest.


For the iPhone 5, I walked into an AT&T store in Indianapolis, IN while traveling, and at 2:00pm, I purchased an iPhone 5, black, 64GB (highest capacity available).  I got the last one that store had, but the local Apple store and even the local Best Buy were sold out of AT&T models entirely.  For the iPhone 6, I walked into my local store near home and purchased the 128GB Space Grey model and they still had a few 128GB ones left, but they were sold out of all Gold iPhones and almost all Silver ones.

Re: availability

Based on Apple's official information, there is NO chance of you getting a
Jet Black model tomorrow, anywhere.
