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?

7 hours later and the 256 GB Golden 8 Plus is still available for launch day delivery and pickup.

The Series 3 watch I want has slipped to 3-4 weeks for shipping, but still available for launch day pick up at pentagon city mall.

I think this may be a sign.

I ordered a white ceramic series 3 watch and a 4K ATV with delivery on Friday. So excited to swim laps with the watch and watch Deadpool in 4K!

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.

The good thing about getting the 8 Plus is I will get some time to play with it and if for some reason I'm not happy with the results I can still get the X and return my 8.

Ok. I've made my decision. Getting the 256 gb iPhone 8 Plus in Space Gray. Changed colors because I prefer black over white on the front of my phone. So I'm not racist.

I will place order shortly for pickup at Pentagon City location on launch day.

I'm picking up the same model, color, and storage in Annapolis the same day.

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.
