I got into the store at about 12:03. I had a chance to do in-store pickup, but was trained for delivery, that I failed and didn't go for the November 3 store pick-up. So I got a Silver 256 T-Mobile for November 10-17. Anybody think we'll get lucky and be bumped up? Also, double checked, my credit card hasn't been charged. I know those that have, got release date delivery.

They don’t charge until they’re about to ship ...

I’m wondering if the 11/10-11/17 group is considered part of the initial estimates of 3 million for launch.

Yeah, 12:08am order here. 256GB Space Grey T-Mobile - Nov 10-17. Haven't heard of anyone getting November 3 for T-Mobile, for some reason. My wife's 256GB T-Mobile silver is November 17-24, placed at 12:09am.

Interesting how everyone in this thread with Nov 10-17 delivery ordered the T-Mobile version. Same here. I was in the app at 3:04am EST and that was the shown delivery estimate already. I also couldn't select in-store pickup for some reason.

Haven't seen anyone on T-Mobile with launch day delivery yet. I'm HOPING that this means there's still a chance of launch day delivery, especially for IUP members.

I have yet to see someone with T-Mobile who got release date delivery. Also T-Mobile 256GB Space Gray with 1 to 2 weeks here
12:03, 1-2 weeks. Don't think there was release day delivery.
So far that's what it seems. I've only read those who ordered a t-mobile phone get release day if they did in-store pickup. I wonder if this means we may get bumped up. Or Apple may remedy this by doing something for us. My confirmation email shows 12:04. So I was quick in and out.

interesting, mine is t-mobile as well

Usually in my experience apple ship dates are spot on and don’t deviate. it almost seems a verified confirmed email order is already tied to a serial number way in advance that Apple knows it can fulfill by the date they place given the time it takes to get from China to your door.

I was in and to the checkout screen by 3:06 EST with a TMO 64GB Silver for 11/3 In store pickup before the app crashed. Trying again, every nearby store was unavailable and I went through with the 1-2 week delivery window. It seems like Space Grey was more available, as 10 minutes later I was able to reserve a TMO 64GB SG for 11/3 In store

Same here. 256GB Grey T-Mobile. 3:08am e-mail, 1-2 weeks arriving Nov 10-17. Going on vacation for two weeks on 11/13, so really hoping it arrives at the beginning of that range. I think there’s hope, because I haven’t seen anyone with a 11/4-11/10 range, so hopefully we’ll get bumped up, or at the very least 11/10.

I'll throw my hat in the ring...

I helped to facilitate 4 pre-orders, all through IUP (all completed the pre-approval.).

3 iPhone X Silver 64 GB (Verizon) - Nov 10-17
1 iPhone X Space Gray 64GB (Verizon) - Nov 3

The apple store app experience was weird to say the least. It was a trickle effect. I was able to get in first, then another relative, then my wife's phone and finally the last relative. We were all in different locations with the exception of mine and my wife's. It seemed like from the very start, the Silver iPX was in very limited supply. I think I got my actual order in around 3:04am-3:06am(EST). Space gray remained with a Nov 3rd ship date until around 3:15am. Silver was pretty much done out of the gate.

The fifth phone I needed to pre-order was a new IUP order. Apple couldn't reach Verizon's network to verify the account details so I got the whole "cannot reach carrier, we will reserve one for you and email you when we can reach the carrier so you can complete your order." At that time, it was another iPX 64GB Silver, which had slipped to 2-3 weeks.

Well guys my case is the same as you all!!:

iPhone x 256gb Space Gray with T-Mobile

I got my confirmation email at 3:04 ET.

I got acces to the apple store around 3:02 ET and the estimate delivery was already 11/3.

I tried to order for in-store pickup but had no luck.

I bought a second iPhone X 64GB Space with T-Mobile and this one I have it for 11/3 pickup.

I really hope to see my 256GB on being delivered Monday the 6th.

I am hoping that the two I ordered get bumped up ...

I was able to secure myself a silver 256GB iphone X via IUP new signup on the website. I tried and tried and tried on the apple app but gave up and moved to the website. I ended up getting the email confirmation at 3:09 so I probably completed around 3:07 or 3:08

T-Mobile, Space Grey, 256GB

E-mail confirmation received at 3:05 EST, 11/10-11/17 delivery (ships in 1-2 weeks). It definitely seems that only the T-Mobile variant was affected. On a different note, has anyone's order changed from "Order Received" to "Order in Progress"?
