    Looking forward to seeing everyone's experience ordering through Apple. Seems to be the quickest/easiest to do. I plan on waking up at 2:55am and knocking it out. Good luck everyone and enjoy!

    Really hoping the carriers announce some deals this week if you trade in your 7.

    Will be fully ready to order my iPhone X on October 27th.
    Last year I succesfully ordered 3 iPhone 7's with delivery on releasedate.

    Its that time of the year again... New iPhones! Planning on upgrading my iPhone 7 Plus to the iPhone X through Apple.com. Might take some time getting used to not having a home button, but I'm stoked to give this new phone a shot. Noticed Zagg has Invisible Shields available on their website for pre order today. Got mine on pre order. I always use the OtterBox Commuter Series cases for my phones. Waiting for them to become available too. October 27th can't come quick enough. Hopefully no damn Typhoons this year delaying orders. My 7 Plus was part of that last year. #TeamTyphoon :p

    The app is usually the easiest. Has any carrier announced a deal besides T-mobile?

    I am ordering mine through the apple store through the upgrade program like I did last year for my 7+. I decided to go with preordering an 8+ instead of an X. I am going to wait until next year for the improved version of the X before jumping in on the button-less design.

    Did you order all 3 in one go, or did you have to one at a time order? I am planning to order 2 iPhone Xs.

    Dead easy. Set up the purchase with Verizon and even put a reminder on my calendar to pick it up on the 22nd.

    I'm going to let the rest of you beta test the X for me.

    I'll pick up the next rev once they have all the "kinks" worked out.

    I don't do contracts anymore or be tied to a carrier. Personal choice. I just buy an unlocked iPhone online from Apple and put in a Straight Talk SIM. I get unlimited talk and text and 8 GB of data for $45. a month. Kit comes with three SIM cards - ATT, Verizon or T-Mobile. Works for me anyway.

    For all those in the Denver area, I am starting a pre-order list for the iPhone X with Verizon. I will be placing orders for anybody on the pre-order list, as soon as midnight hits. If you don't want to wait in line, or wake up at 1AM, let me handle your order for you. I work in Small Business Development, so i can travel and meet at one of our locations to get the ball rolling. Excited to see if they will sell out in the first run like they usually do. Not on Verizon, np, get up to $650 for switching and we pay off your old phone.
