    in the rare case that I won’t be impressed with my X..

    My plan B will be to take it to a Verizon store and exchange it for the BlackBerry KeyOne.

    Dude that phone is SICK. Love love love blackberry. The keyboard having the swipe functions is what honestly sold me.

    Had I known that phone was out before ( saw it today at Best Buy for the first time ) I pre ordered my X, I would have been typing on that instead.

    I hate to say this, but Google Pixel 2. Grainy screen or not, it has the best camera and everything is smooth as butter.

    I played around with it and it feels cheap.

    It’s really light and felt kind of flimsy. But still a great choice !!

    The Sony Xperia what ever the hell number it’s at felt amazing as well.

    But man that blackberry really impressed me. Kinda felt sad walking out of there without one.

    Being a total tech nerd, I switch back and forth from iOS to Android alot. I’m currently using a Pixel XL Gen1 and am totally happy with it still. If I don’t end up liking the X, I’ll probably just stick with the old Pixel.

    Is this a difficult thing to do ? I actually was thinking about doing this.

    Going back and forth from phone to phone.

    Is there a way to simply turn one device off and the other on and all your stuff sync up ?

    Putting the X down and picking up the blackberry at ease will be awesome.

    If you use Gmail and Google Calendar you'll have no problems. Just use Google Apps on your iPhone and you'll be okay, or link them to Google Accounts. It's seamless.

    It’s not really a rare case because majority of the people (other than apple people or tech reviewers and that girl) haven't tried it. There may be some people who won’t like it...especially those coming from plus version. Anyway, if it doesn’t work out, i return it and keep 6 plus and wait for x plus...

    Nice !

    It’ll be just for my messages and phone numbers honestly. Everything else is cloud based. I’ll just leave all the apps pre installed.

    So it doesn’t mater if I do this from iPhone to android ? ( that’s what blackberry keyone is running )

    Plan B is iPhone 8 - although if I keep the T-Mobile with JOD I'm not sure if I can exchange it.

    I’ll just stick with it. If anything, exchange for the 256

    If the X doesn't pan out for me, I'm going for the 8 Plus.

    If you want messages to sync, then you are probably better off using Google Hangouts instead of iMessage for your conversations.

    For Contacts/Phone Numbers, you can add a CardDav account on the iPhone, which is linked to Google so you can have them in sync.

    Doesn't matter, they are linked to the same Google account.

    Probably stick with it. If I absolutely hate it - then I’ll stick with my 8 Plus.

    You'd stick with the X? You have a 14 day return period and you still have your 6 Plus...

    Haha, I just mean I'll definitely be keeping the X. I'm at the end of my rope with the 6 Plus, don't want to leave the Apple ecosystem, and don't think the 8 is a worthwhile upgrade.

    Stick with it. The plus cramped my hand bad when I got my 6+. I’ve owned a plus phone ever since. I adapt.

    Plan B is to go back to my 7 plus, but hopefully it won't come to that

    Blackberry? Is that even still a thing? Last time I heard the word, about 5 years ago, a waitress asked me if I wanted any for my toast.

    If I don't like the iPhone X, then I'll go back to my 8 Plus. I never liked Android.

    You have an 8 Plus now, what are you going to do with it if you like your iPhone X?

    There is no Plan B. I didn't pull out, I will live with my decision.

    That being said, this is a sweet and sexy phone, and I definitely don't wanna pull out of this deal. I'm in it for the long haul.
