    Is it possible to pre-order the iPhone 7 on Friday in the US without a US credit card? I currently live in the US but do not have a US issued credit card. Thinking of going the prepaid Visa route, anyone has experience with this? Thanks.

    I do have a US based apple ID, but no credit card that uses US billing address. also I don't have any info for the US carriers, since SIM free versions wont be available in the US right away

    whats the process? I changed the region of my ios apple store app to US and seems like i can go through ordering a 6S at least. but I can only choose the SIM free version, as choosing AT&T prompts me for AT&T info. SIM free version of iphone 7 wont launch right away AFAIK so seems like it'll be impossible to preorder in the US for me

    Ive bought several times directly from the apple store US, im in the caribbean.

    I use the same shipping as billing and only had problems 2 times and one was that i had to contact the bank to allow the transaction to go through, the other occasion i had a problem was that apple was unable to verify the details and requested for me to call.

    So just keep and eye on your email and phone.

    Actually I think you're hooped buying through Apple UNTIL they start offering the sim-free versions.
