Hey guys
Is there any retail stores where I can purchase an iPhone 6 Plus Unlocked without having to wait 3 weeks :(
Seems like most stores don't have them yet and people are trying to sell them for ridiculous amounts on TradeMe

Cheers!

It depends. What size and colour are you after?

I got a 64gb plus in white after 2 days, but I know a guy who's been waiting 2+ weeks for his black 64gb.

It looks like 2 degrees are offering the iPhone 6 on an open term pay monthly plan, which means you can buy the phone and have to sign up to a monthly plan but can cancel that plan straight away, if you don't want to use 2 degrees. Not sure whether you'll find them physically in-stock though.

Vodafone are only offering them on 24 month contract at the moment. 

Spark's stupid new website won't even let me check without having to make an account with them, which I'm prompted to do when clicking 'buy now' to see their pricing options.

Vodafone is also offering 6 and 6+ on open term and interest free.I think its vodafone only who are offering 6+ at this stage on open term(2deg maybe) and interest free.

I'm still weighing up whether I should go for the iPhone 6 Plus 128GB or the iPhone 6 128GB given that I've had a look at both but I wonder whether if I go for the iPhone 6 whether I'll be regretting not getting the bigger one later on. I measured up the screen on my HTC One M8 and the 4.7 is so close to that size and I'm pretty comfortable with the HTC One M8 size that maybe getting the smaller one is not only better but it avoids waiting the 3-4weeks that Apple is quoting on their website. All I can suggest regarding iPhone Plus stock in stores is whether the Plus is worth the weight because from what I understand there is quite the backlog globally and knowing how business works we're (in NZ) are probably playing second fiddle to the bigger markets.

You'll probably be waiting longer for the plus, but I can tell you it's worth it :D

True, I'm going to head back into Spark again to have a touch/feel/play because I also have to take into account that I'll be putting a 'Pad and Quill' case over the top which will make it bigger again. Honestly, I want a bigger screen than the old iPhone 5S but I have a feeling that maybe the Plus is probably a little too big for what I need.

Good idea I think... I've had a 6 Plus since launch day in Aussie, but am considering dropping down to a 6 due to the size

I saw the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in Harvey Norman yesterday. They appeared to be available for outright purchase.

Oh yeah, where exactly? I was just on their website and it says "Pre-paid/Outright stock will be available at a later date." Plus it said they are Spark phones. Thanks for any info!

Doesn't matter. They're all unlocked and exactly the same.
