    Is that sort of the same phenomenon as "scalping tickets" at a pro athletic event or a big concert?

    I thought for sure I had no chance of getting a new gold iPhone 5s on launch day, after going online at 3:00 in the morning and seeing all shipments delayed till October already! Well took a chance this morning and drove to best buy at 7:30 am and only had five people in line ahead of me, but still thought my odds were slim of getting one of any color at all, and you would never have expected but this store actually had 15 32gb gold iPhone 5s' in stock, and funny enough it was the only model they had. So I got lucky today! Yes!

    Thanks. Yeah I never thought I would luck out like that today. The phone is great. Everything is smooth and fast, and the gold color really looks nice in my opinion. The fingerprint sensor is incredibly accurate for anyone wondering. Apple did an excellent job implementing that.

    I honestly thought the gold was too overrated...I couldnt get my hands on one at the Apple Store, but when I went in to check it out in person, it was not what I expected...

    I was actually looking for the gold display and walked past it thinking it was silver until someone pointed it out to me.

    Maybe it was the lighting at the Apple Store, but the champagne looked too light.

    I settled with space grey, and it looks really nice.

    Yeah.. What's weird to me about the "gold fever" is that 99.98% of iPhone users use a case on their phones. A case will cover, entirely -- the sides and back of phone which is where all the gold coloring is. So it's a little silly to get all worked up over the gold... Unless you like your phone "naked" and unprotected.

    I picked up Space Grey at AT&T but don't like it at all. I'm hoping Best Biy will come through and call me when the gold 64GB comes in. I will use a clear bumper and Clear PlastiDip the back to get the protection I need!

    Srsly?
    Not only is that percentage ridiculous (as per your usual lol) but some people who have cases have ones that still show the phone (eg bumper cases or clear cases).

    Looks like Best Buy came through after all. My Gold 64GB is ready for pickup!

    Bouts restore this one and return it, now!

    So you're implying that a significant number - to most - people who have to have a gold will be planning to go naked or get a "clear" case for it?

    Nope. Just saying it will be more than 0.02%.

    I'd say somewhere around 50% of my customers who get a color swap on their iPhones buy one of these clear cases to go with it. I sell tons of them.
