    Hopefully I can change the shipping address. I can't remember what happened last time, but I know I had my 6+ shipped to my apartment instead of my billing address. And since Apple took down their site, I can't check my order history.

    Not so good. They usually have a splash page about the pre-order. Not this pre-register crap. It usually takes them over an hour longer than any other carrier to get live. Once live it seems to stay ok though.

    Have ordered my last 4 phones this way. Just prepare to be frustrated initially...

    how long would you say the window is before shipping times start slipping past the 16th?

    Usually a few days. Sprint seems to have supply longer. They ship late tho like Wednesday, and don't commit to you getting it on time till it ships.

    where is the iPhone for life financing plan? I'm currently on that from last year and when I select a device it shows:

    17 month pay nothing down

    18 month pay $200 down

    24 Month pay $200 down

    Pay in full..


    Nothing about continuing on the same payment plan

    There's a payment options button that shows a description:
    What are my payment options?
    Sprint Lease: Our lowest price for your phone + plan. At the end of the lease, you can buy the phone, continue leasing it month-to-month, or turn it in and upgrade to a new one.

    iPhone Forever: This is similar to Sprint Lease, with the added benefit that you get the latest iPhone every year. Upgrade at any time after 12 payments.

    Galaxy Forever: Also like Sprint Lease, with the added benefit that you get the latest Galaxy every year. Upgrade at any time after 12 payments.

    Monthly Installments: Pay for your new phone with monthly payments instead of one lump sum upfront. After the phone is paid off, you own it.

    Contract: Pay a discounted price for your phone upfront and sign a 24-month service agreement.

    Full price: Pay for your phone upfront and own it outright. No monthly payments.

    No credit check: Pay for your phone upfront and own it outright. No monthly payments. No credit check required.




    But the 17, 18, 24 month options don't specify what each are.

    Zero. Can't even attempt to buy as a new customer.

    Bestbuy.com can't connect to my account to check upgrade status.

    I actually got in a minute or so before the official launch time, ordered a jet black 6-Plus 128GB, and everything seemed to be going smoothly. But when I completed the checkout, I was given a delivery date of 10/7. This better be a glitch! I really don't know how I was not one of the very first orders on the site.

    And a few minutes later, I received an email from Sprint informing me: "Your order is on hold - please call us," and that I will need to call them during normal business hours to give some "additional information" (within 5 days, or my order is cancelled).

    Very frustrating. I hope all of this is easily cleared up with a phone call tomorrow, and that the 10/7 date is inaccurate. Ugh.
