    I’m in line for iPhone x now. At a local Apple store, 2 more hours till opening 50 people ahead of me. Will be buying full price

    I’m with cricket wireless but plan to buy a t-mobile iPhone x at full price.

    I just wanna know what my options are if t-mobile iphone gets sold out.

    1) can I buy the ATT or Verizon or Sprint iPhone x at full price without signing up with a plan? I understand I can buy t-mobile without signing for a plan.

    Thanks, 2 more hours till the store opens here in the west coast

    Yes. Buy any phone directly from Apple at full price. Walk out. Put sim in. Smile :)

    Again to reemphasize. If I am a TMobile user, they don't have "TMobile 256" but they have 256 ATT.. Can I buy it and drop a TMO sim?

    Yes AT&T phone would work and so would Verizon or Sprint, as the CDMA version also works with GSM but The GSM one only works with AT&T or T-Mobile. If they don't have T-Mobile, any of the other ones would take your T-Mobile SIM card.

    This makes more sense now, thanks.

    709 am here, an apple store employee just came outside the mall and made reservations for iPhone x to the people waiting.

    I made one for t-mobile 256 in space gray, just need to go in the store and pay when it opens. Can’t wait
