I'm in a bit of an odd situation but I figure someone here may have done something similar for a past iPhone. I'm with AT&T, but I when I travel I use my Verizon work SIM with unlimited international data. I keep my AT&T SIM in a plugged-in extra iPhone to properly forward iMessages and SMS while I'm out of the country. Anyways, my requirements are: 1) Get the CDMA iPhone X 2) On launch day 3) Even though I'll be out of the country and unable to go to an Apple store in person Is there any way to do this on Apple's site? If not, is it worth opening a Verizon account with a cheapo Android phone in early October so I have a line/account set up when I go through the pre-order process? To clarify, I intend to pay full price up front and money isn't really a concern (though I would prefer to spend < $100 to guarantee I'll be able to do a pre-order).
