Who will be first....  I hate to say that I will not be.  I am holding off for a few weeks before I purchase.  I have some other financial items that I need to address before I can do it.  Hopefully mid October.

My wife's shows delivered, but I don't think she knows it's out there right now.  UPS came real early this morning.  Usually they don't show up until 6-7 at night

 

Edit:  Just got a pic of it, but not activating until she backs up and we figure out what to do with getting the $1 deal.

It always seems like on days like today the UPS schedule is kinda off.  Usually we get late deliveries also but the last couple of times we had iPhones delivered they came around noon.

After speaking with chat, the only way we would qualify for the 1$ deal is if we paid off the lease. At this point we already have a killer deal with our loyalty credit and the buy back credit so Im just going to stick with it. 

 

And to qualify we would've all had to been eligible for our 2 year upgrade, or had our phones paid off. Only 1 device had the 2 year upgrade. And none were paid off. So I think the loyalty credit route was a better way. 1st line was just activated on our account. He's currently setting everything up now.

Got lucky and walked into the local store this morning at 8 and snagged the last 6s Plus 64G (space grey). Had problems with the Reps getting the new promotion prices to work, but after a few calls they got it all worked out. Restoring from backup and then time to play play play!

 

Rumor: I work for a cell tower construction company and was aware of Verizon banning all service affecting work from midnight last night to Monday, but my boss told me today that Apple has demanded all carriers implement this for this weekend just to help guarantee that all iPhone 6s users would have no issues. All mighty Apple!!

Now I need to wait out this meeting and head home!

Tried my luck at walking into a Sprint store at 1pm. All 6s models were in stock, no 6s+ at all. Too bad. Guess I'll be waiting a couple weeks.

We had 1 6s+ in stock earlier this morning. Sold out right away.

I got mine delivered to me at work and got it activated right away. So far I love it. Camera is awesome. Peek and pop are going to change the way I email for sure.

I'm kind of on the fence about the 6s+ though. The extra heft and size are certainly noticeable compared to my old 6. Going to give it a few days to see how I like it and go from there. Besides that I'm impressed.

 

Edit. I sound contradictory. Lol. I love it but hate it in short.

No CA that I know of around me. At work I'm on B26 so idk if I would even connect to it. To be honest I don't even know what CA would look like in the iPhone besides the higher bandwidth number and the speeds being faster.

Interested to see what my phone does for speeds when I get home. If it doubles the 45mbps I get on B41 I'll be an extremely happy man.

 

Field test doesn't fill the screen on my 6S+.

The serving cell info is most valuable one..    On the 6, the FREQ BAND INDICATOR will show what band you are on (25, 26,41).  Yours is showing 1092552756.  And with your speed, you are likely on B41 CA.  Maybe a funky number in the FREQ BAND INDICATOR indicates CA..

 

Keep your eye on that serving cell screen for us please..

 

-- EDIT - the screen I meant was "Serving Cell Info"
