I'm assuming my chances of going to Verizon on the 16th and getting one are slim to nil, huh

From the Apple site regarding the iPhone Upgrade Program
Beginning September 9, youll be able to make a reservation online to upgrade at the Apple Store.
On the day of your appointment, just bring your current iPhone with you and check in with a Specialist to complete the upgrade process.
* Your final eligibility, including amount owed, will be validated when you
upgrade in the store.
As nice as having a fully waterproof AW and a water resistant, *all black* iPhone would be, I'm holding out for an OLED iPhone and my current AW works fine for the gym atm. Might get a new watch band, though.
