    Yeah.. That's a point I hadn't thought 'as much' about.. I use almost exclusively speaker phone or ear piece for phone calls - do the thing will almost never be 'touching my ear'. But now with the 'cut out of the 6+' I'm rethinking it.. The vast majority of the time I'm holding this baby in 'one hand' typing with the other hand.. I'm not a 'two-thumb' typer.. I'm as fast with 'one index finger of my right hand' as any two thumb typer I've met on SmartPhones.. LOL!! My last hold out is that I really do like ne handed use.. And that extra $100 is gonna kinda strap me.

    Hmmm.. decisions, decisions.. I just keep coming back to that 'alleged' 'extra' battery time on the plus.. I'm gonna HOLD Apple to that. If I start having to charge this thing midday on heavy use on STOCK -- I'm taking it back for the 6. I'm also ''jealous' of those gorgeous bright amazing displays on the note 4 and other LG Curve phones. The whole reason for a larger phone is 'seeing things larger'.. And since they're not changing screen size ratio to give us more desktop space (except the 6th row of icons) I think I will like bigger test and bigger icons and labels..

    So I'm starting to lean to 6+ when I was 99% sure of 6 only 24 hours ago... Those paper cut outs are helping me decide!!

    This statement alone proves you really don't have a clue what you're talking about. I won't dignify the discussion further with you as you don't even have a basic education on electronics.. Peace out..

    I had one of my guys in the fab shop make me a sheet metal piece for the 6+ (with rolled edges) just to see how it would fit into my jeans pocket as I'm on my motorcycle so much in the winter months when it cools to the 80's.
    Seemed big of coarse, but manageable even being I'm so short and small (buy kids clothes sometimes too, lol).
    So if I choose to cruise with the bigger of the 2 new iPhones it will not be a problem.
    I'm ready, bring it on. Bigger is better...
    Themeing the 6+ may be an issue like the iPad with dual pane mode. hmmmmm

    Oh I forgot about dual panel mode.. Do we like that??? Not sure.. And landscape for homescreen icons??? hm... not sure I'd need that.. Worrying about 'rotation code' for themes and SB widgets? Getting sorta complicated.. I'm up and down on this.. but I have to decide by tomorrow - well the next day at 3am..

    Anybody know the secret of 'pre-order' at 'minute one' after it opens? Do you just fill out all the windows and after 12:02PDT hit 'purchase'? Or won't it even let your fill out any windows on the screen until after 12:01 PDT?

    Normally won't let you proceed any further than you can now until just after 12 pacific time. That's 4am my time (ouch lol). I normally just set my alarm for 5 minutes before then go on and get her done. Normally you don't have any sold out issues the first hour or so of sales being live.

    It's already an option on their website which makes me think it'll be possible!

    Here's the secret...
    - Start trying at 12a Pacific Time
    - Keep trying for an hour and a half while the servers are crashing
    - If you're lucky, by 2am you'll have a preorder completed!

    That's a keeper to yourselfer, k!

    lmao, oh it isn't that bad, you'll scare him off I've normally been back to bed within 20 minutes after the preorders going live.

    Yup yup. T-mo option is there. Pretty certain they will be unlocked like last year as long as you get them through apple and not through t-mobile.

    Ditto, it has never taken longer then 30/40 minutes. Well worth it to be one of the first to have this sweetie in my lil' hands.

    I don't think I've ever gotten through in the first 30min and I've tried every year!!!

    It always takes at least an hour for me.

    Do the online Att stores also make the phones available at 12am Pacific too ? I have a $100 AT&T gift card I need to use on this purchase - so I can't go thru Apple Store since they don't accept carrier gift cards.
