I got my delay email from Sprint a few days ago, but I'm not mad at them. Go onto any of their competitor's forums, and you'll see the same exact frustration from people. The 128 GB models are in incredibly short supply, either due to the rumored chip problems, or totally unexpected demand. NO ONE is getting them at the moment. Across the board. Unless you want a 16 or 64 GB, calm down, send hate mail to Apple.
That's not true, I have friends all over the world that I've talked to. Many of the 128's are sitting in storage rooms with nobody buying them because of the price. Singapore has an influx of them but they selling them for $1500-$2000 a pop on the black market to US buyers but they still in the stores. It was a distribution and production fuggup that got us here. Fact remains other carriers are getting more on the 5th but no word from Sprint.
you guys got me with that one.. I don't even have a phone number with Sprint, but I'm sure as hell not waiting 7 more weeks for a phone. The last time I spoke to a Sprint rep they dropped the ball and never responded. it's going on 2 weeks so that's pointless.
It is now 8 weeks and no still phone (iPhone 6 Plus 128GB)...
I placed My Order on 9/22/2014 f(rom New Jersey, USA) and I was told 4-6 weeks:
IPHONE 6P GRAY 128GB KIT
To my surprise, on October 31, 2014 (week 6), I received an email stating:
Important order alert
Your shipping date has changed
There's been a slight delay in shipping your backordered phone. Sprint has not received inventory as expected from the manufacturer to fulfill your order. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
Your revised shipping delivery timeline is 3 to 4 weeks from today for:
It is an understatement to say that being told in week 6 that I should expect another delay of up to 4 weeks was disappointing.
This coming Friday, November 21, 2014, I will be at week 3 of Sprint's "revised" shipping delivery period.
No word on whether orders placed prior to my order date on September 22, 2014, have been filled. Each time I call Customer service (and I have called several times), they cannot give any better estimate or explanation. I fear yet another last second email telling me that I have to wait until 2015...
Just got off the phone with my local Iphone Store she said they get the I+ SP 128 delivered every day just sold the last one for the day... I can't cancel fast enough..
