First world problem, I know, but I feel lucky to live in a first wave country. As a yearly upgrader, I would hate to have to wait so long after release to buy a phone only to have the next generation nipping my heels.

Actually, Apple supply chain continues to amaze - 1-2 weeks after the 1st wave, all these countries are getting the phone - not long ago, it would have been several months

You didn't understand, he was talking about the APP store. Not Apple store. Apple store is pure Sci-Fi for Serbia. We have several officially authorized Apple resellers/service providers and, of course, carriers. However, Serbia does not have an App Store. Yup. Really sad. You have to make an account for a different country and not use your real address. You can use a credit card if you make a neighboring Croatian AppleID account.

I feel ya bro, but usually using US App Store is better anyway due to larger availability of apps :) I purchase iTunes cards via eBay and just use that to replenish the credit to buy stuff :)

Here in the UK the 6S+ is so out of stock everywhere it's crazy! First get those replenished please!

Wow. That's very selfish. Let's do it the other way around. First give me a chance to legally buy one in Serbia, then replenish those in your country. Ok?
