    Hey, everyone! I woke up at 8am hoping to reserve a 6s Plus 64gb Gold, which I got! I have T-Mobile and reserved a T-Mobile phone. I'm buying it outright, so I didn't even think about whether I need to have authoritative access on my account (I'm not; I'm on a family plan, and my mom is the main account holder). Will this be an issue for me, or will they just let me walk out with the phone and I can swap the SIM card at home?

    No. If you're buying it outright then it doesn't matter.

    Yes, you simply walk in and tell them you have a reserved iPhone. They'll check for your name. Someone will come out with the model that you reserved, ring it up, and you'll be on your way. You can swap your SIM card when you get home.
