For those ordering via BestBuy have you seen any movement yet? Mines still in progress. Here's hoping for a pick-up date of 11/3 of 2017.

BB employee told me I have a good chance getting it first weekend as I am #17 for pre-order for that store. I don't care getting it on launch. Not an OCD launch day rat racer.

I need some time to think about it. Same feeling getting it launch or a week later especially if I don't plan to sell it. No rush. It's frickin' $1200 and the product will be available for THREE YEARS and with future successors that will look like it.

Verizon bill: $140+ monthly
T-Mobile bill: $82 monthly

We shall see by Wed-Thur. Won't trip out if it's a week later like expected. Gotta see the reviews too.

Were you able to find your # status via in store BestBuy representative/telephone/online live chat? Did you buy yours outright or on payment plans? I took the option of 30 months this time around instead of the Next-24.

With all the threads about the iPhone X being shipped with tracking numbers, are those who ordered through BestBuy a little concerned that yours won't get here by Friday the 3rd according to your confirmation/order number?

I haven't preordered from BestBuy since the iPhone 6. Luckily I got mine on launch day. If I remember correctly, they called me some time during that week to set up a appointment to go pick up. Good luck.

Well there you have it, in the long run you'll be saving money. Just consider this, by Christmas this worry and concern will be long forgotten. If won't matter if the phone arrived a few days or weeks later.

Unless you don’t get it by Christmas. I agree with you though.

I worked at Best Buy for 3 years and every year we had angry customers calling about their iPhone order. We were always required to tell customers that Best Buy does not guarantee an iPhone on release day (this was not only with the iPhone, but with any phone that was being released). Best Buy isn’t the best place to preorder an iPhone. Not saying you won’t be getting it, maybe you’re lucky and you are at the top of the list, but Best Buy never gets enough inventory.

I ordered from Best Buy on purpose. They are going to price match it, always have. And when the phone ships a week after the 3rd, I'd get a $50 gift card. Fair deal to me.

Can you ELI5?
Apple and Qualcomm were family and loved each other very much and made iPhone babies. Then they divorced. Occasionally they still get some action on the side and Verizon and Sprint babies pop out. Qualcomm is the attractive ex. A less attractive Intel entered the arena as Apple's side-bae. When they fornicate, T-Mobile and AT&T babies pop out. These kids are less power efficient and slower. No one wants to adopt an Intel iPhone unless they have to.
