If you expect to get a phone before January 2018, either preorder at midnight, or get in line on release day. There is no "quantity for in store pre order" Never seen it work that way.

In the past, preorders were still being filled for months, while those who got in line on release day walked away with the phone. You should expect some degree of insanity with both, even at the $999 price tag. A resurrection concert by Elvis, Jim Morrison and Prince on Black Friday will be less fought over. I suspect your best option for "sooner rather than later " is a lawn chair, blanket and thermos outside your local company store or Best Buy.
Good luck. I'm glad I'm an android person. 😱😱😱😱😱

Year after year we see many complaints about ATT's website on preorder day. I don't know if apple's site is any better, though. We also routinely hear of people with preorders still not getting them on release day while others walk into a store and get one, so there is no guarantee a preorder gets you a phone on launch day.

Yes, they will but how many is anyone's guess. The number available may differ from store to store. We've heard stories of people waiting in line at a store and the store runs out. We've also heard stories of customers going to a store with no line and walking right out with a new phone. It kind of depends on where you live and what the demand is.
