Have a question about pre-ordering. I was thinking about getting the iPhone X when pre-order starts next month. However, this will be my first year of not having a paid off Next plan on any line. I would have to trade in a phone or pay it off.
What are the thoughts and preferences on this? Do you all just pay them off or trade them in?
Also, if trading in, how does that work for pre-ordering? Do they send the new phone and a box to send the other one back?
Yes! I think people are waiting for the IPhone X. I always get the newest iPhone on launch day. I get up at 2:55 AM to get ready with my iPad and MacBook Pro and my I phone to try to log on to apple.com, T-Mobile, Best Buy. Every year since the iPhone 3GS I've been able to get the phone delivered on Wednesday. I am waiting for the iPhone X so I didn't get up in the middle of the night. I woke up this morning around 7:30 AM and decided to see what the shipping date would be if I ordered an iPhone 8 Plus. The shipping date estimate was September 25 to October 3. Usually when I check in the morning on the lunch day after I have already ordered my phone the estimated ship date is really somewhere around the end of October early November.
OK, change of plans. No way in hell was I going to pay the sales tax that they wanted there. So I will survive my entire trip, including lunch day, on my old iPhone 7 Plus. I did order one to be shipped to my house. It will be waiting when I get back on October 2.
