Apple includes free AppleCare Plus. Also, when you finance through the carrier, you can't make extra payments. Citizen will let you pay more if you want and they don't penalize you for paying your device off early. AT&T will charge you an extra month if you pay it off early.

Apple absolutely does not give you apple care plus for free. They just divide it up and add a few extra dollars in each monthly payment.

And verizon allows you to pay off the phone early or make extra payments. I'm having a hard time believing ATT doesn't.

If your with Tmobile I would go with them as it will probably have the most available inventory. Tmobile phones are only really sold at Tmobile and Costco in the US so the inventory isn't as constrained as the other carriers which have there inventory going to a lot of retailers. Also Tmobile phones through Apple for some reason are a scalpers dream phone an are always hard to get.

I paid off my iPad Pro early and they charged me an extra month. Not sure if it's any different with the phone.

Windows Vista is key for pre orders. Not a lot of people realize the benefit of the manifest destiny rendering in the internet explorer for vista. Pings Apple in half the time.

so how you know ?????
Well Apple has been naming operating systems after places in California and lots of places in California has vista in the name. So maybe vista was connected to Apple?

In any even I was just joking around since I remember everyone hating vista when it was released. I was trying to relax the mood since I feel like everyone is on edge with the predicted catastrophe for Friday.

I’m sorry if I got hopes up. :)

Well this is all very bad and incorrect info. I know so from personal experiences.

Two years ago when I got my 6s I walked into a Verizon store first day and they had several for sale. I ended up with 64gb vs the 32 I wanted but who cares. It is always worth a shot if you can't get the right pre-order.

I always order though Apple (using either web or App, though the App has worked much better for the last 3 launches) for my carrier, AT&T using AT&T Next. Works great.

Apple ships my new iPhone and AT&T sends me the return box for the old one. Easy-peasy.
