I know there is a T-Mobile pre-order thread already but it is flooded with iPhone 8/8+ posts. I am a fairly new T-mobile customer and never pre-ordered an iPhone with T-Mobile service (former AT&T customer). I understand that T-Mobile is not so easy with the iUp plans through Apple as you have to be in store, which means T-Mobile people will not be able to get their phones until stock is available in store (which, for all we know, could be a long time). I am now considering just buying the iPhone X outright from Apple as soon as I can (hopefully at midnight on 10/27). Does Apple usually sell iPhone outright (unlocked) the night pre-order begins? I know a few years ago they did not and the unlocked ones went on sale a few weeks later. And if they do, can you buy any version of the unlocked iPhone X (AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon) and just pop your SIM card in or do you have to have to get the T-Mobile version?? Any hitches here if you are willing to pay full price? And, did anyone notice that Apple Care for the iPhone X is $199!!?? Wow.
