    So here is my situation, I am currently on a 2 year contract with AT&T, which ends 04/2017. I called AT&T to see if they would let me switch to NEXT early so I could upgrade to the 7+. After 1 hour on the phone with AT&T Retention Department, they agreed to let me upgrade early to NEXT, and cancel out my 2 year contract with no ETFS or fees (outside of new upgrade fees, etc). But the bummer part is that I have to do the upgrade through the Retention Department since they override the system and according to them, they can't do pre-orders over the phone, only normal orders, meaning I would have to wait until launch day (Sept 16) to order. What are my chances of being able to order one then? I figured they would probably be sold out and on backorder and I would have to wait like a month to get it .

    Hmmmm. Well, in-store carrier inventory will be really limited it sounds like. You may have a shot. Try calling when they open the retention line.
