I’ll stick around and wait for it I guess, but my 7+ is literally barely functional at this point. Screen is really broken, front camera doesn’t work, LCD is breaking more everyday with it frequently clicking random things, and the worst is my phone dies ifcliterally off of a charger for more then like 30-45 minutes.

+1...lining up at local Apple store too.

Same.

I'm not actually going to deal with the pre-order stuff tomorrow.

Next Thursday, going to pack some stuff in a backpack early in the morning, work, and then head out to the closest Apple Store around 8-9pm. Could recharge my phones at my parent's home.

If I don't get one at all, life goes on. It's not life or death. Move on. Get on with my life.

C'est la vie. :cool:

Dr. Peter Venkman: Apple is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.

Tim: What do you mean, "biblical"?

Dr. Raymond Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.

Dr. Peter Venkman: Exactly.

Dr. Raymond Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!

Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...

Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave!

Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

Why do all of that? The online pre-orders are so much less hassle. It takes all of 2-3 minutes and you’re done.

Not an option, does not compute. You might as well ask "what will you eat for breakfast tomorrow if the universe ceases to exist". I WILL get getting an X on launch day, you can bank on it.

I'll be f pissed. Like really really pissed.

Waiting since years, then at keynote, another delay for 7 weeks. I can be patient, but not cool if one is not able to get on nov 3

I gotta tell ya, I had no intention of upgrading my 6 to iOS 11. But... I had a few adult beverages and did it anyway. The only problem I’m having is a slight slowdown in app openings. Everything else seems ok. I think your 7 must be defective.

If I get a delivery date other than launch day, it will depend on how long the wait is. If it's a couple of weeks, no problem.

Damn, y'all are obsessed.
I personally can never wait on the street all night on a cold November night just so I can be one of the first people to have this new piece of tech. If I can't delay satisfaction for a few days or a couple of weeks I'd rather pay a scalper than waiting overnight.
But hey, more power to you guys.

For The iPhone X, it will be. In my opinion, this is going to be the biggest launch since the first generation iPhone.
What’s my time worth? More than camping out for a phone. I think it’s kinda pathetic, but to each their own.

Needless to say, I won’t be camping out.

Neither will I. But I understand for those who do you have the time and want the experience. Because sometimes that's what it's all about, is the experience for something that they have a passion for, which clearly is this new iPhone X.

Get it replaced at the Apple store, it’s barely a year old if you bought it at launch.
