    No thanks. I am waiting for the iPhone X (2) or something better I think.

    What do you do when none of your cards offer Apple Pay? Doesn't your usual credit card info work in the app?

    This is full cash only and does not address any AT&T Next, iPhone Upgrade or other payment options.

    For some reason, this reminded me of...

    “Alright Simpson, let’s go over the signals. If I tuck the bill of my cap like so . . .” – C.M. Burns
    “Yeah.” – Homer Simpson
    “. . . it means the signal is a fake.” – C.M. Burns
    “Uh-huh.” – Homer Simpson
    “However, I can take that off by dusting my hands thusly.” – C.M. Burns
    “Got it.” – Homer Simpson
    “If I want you to bunt, I will touch my belt buckle not once, not twice, but thrice.” – C.M. Burns
    “Uh-oh, I don’t understand a word he’s saying. Why doesn’t he just let me bat? I wish I was home with a big bag of potato chips. Mmmm, potato chips.” – Homer’s Brain

    Make sure to have all your account information up-to-date and billing information. And I would have multiple devices running side-by-side to see which opens first between the application or website.

    I'm on the upgrade program.

    It doesn't seem like we can add the phone to our favorites.

    Is there something I'm doing wrong?

    If you're on the upgrade program it's actually easier. You can go in and get pre-approved for which device you want now. Once it's time to order all you have to do is go back to the app, click a banner at the top (you'll see it once you get pre-approved), confirm your order and you're good to go.

    Is it really necessary to force close the app in order to refresh it? Wouldn't it suffice to just swipe back and try again?

    Oh MacRumors, why did you have to go and tell the uninformed. If people really wanted an X they should have uncovered this themselves beforehand :(

    For anyone that will be using a payment plan through their carrier, you CANNOT order through the app. Only the website or calling your provider

    Does anyone know the reason why the Apple Store website is slower than the iPhone app?

    Not true actually, before saving to your favorites you will already have chosen what carrier, how you want to pay, etc. Just hit continue, add to bag and pay.

    Can anyone elaborate on the “pick up in store” option? I have heard you need to select a window of time to pick it up?

    Tbh I can’t wait! I’m hoping to watch a few episodes after I get the pre order :)

    I live in Cali so 12 am isn’t that late. 3 am for the east coast people is late though

    This is what I’m wondering as well. Will it refresh if I go back or off the account page and then back?
