    Going to activate it, wait for all my stuff to sync up.

    Then take a drive to the Apple store and get the brick for quick charging and a case. I’ll be on the GO since we are going to go see Thor Ragnarok at 7:00. And I have to get a haircut all in between FML.

    I literally only have like 3 hours to get all of this done from the time I get home till we go to the movies. Hopefully the phone can keep up lol. I’m going in a group of like 12 people including my beautiful girlfriend who is also a huge brat. I am the only one out of all of them who will have the X so I know everyone is going to want to use it, take pictures, selfies and just touch it. Including my girl who will probably have it most of the night. Omg no one better drop it.

    Head to the Apple Store and have them use their special machine to install a screen protector. And buy a case.

    Hide the body of the person I had to club on the head as they were skipping out of the mall where our store's located, to get it.

    On the plus side, it should still be dark-ish at 8am...so that'll help. :D

    The first thing I will do is to drop mine from a helicopter about 25,000 feet in the air to try and get more subs.

    Why don't you get the stuff you need from the Apple Store prior to Friday? That'd save you some time.

    As for me, I have the day off. I will pick it up early in the AM at the UPS hub, activate it, restore from back up and play with it all day.

    What.

    They have a machine that installs screen protectors ? So no more middle of the mall, dry ashy fingers doing it anymore ?

    Awesome ! I can imagine how precise it is.

    Thanks ! I’m so excited. I’m mainly more stoked about the movie than anything. We have a specia IMAX theater here in New England. The screen is 4 stories high and there’s subwoofers under the seats !

    With a fudruckers inside the building.

    Omg CMON FRIDAY

    Return home, backup, restore, pair AW3, suit up the screen protector/case, then an iPhone X photoshoot, play with all its features, decide if I want to purchase Call of Duty WWII, the list goes on, but at least I’m off on Friday.

    I’m going to my local Apple Store too that day despite my iPhone being shipped to me. I’m probably just going to grab a case but I also like to see all the people at the store on a launch day.

    Nothing, since I'll not have an iPhone X :eek:

    Its great so many people can enjoy Apple's latest and greatest, and I mean no disrespect to the OP or others getting, but this Friday will be like every other Friday ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    My routine:

    1. Power on - make sure all the pixels are where they should be. Then shut it down. If good...
    2. Take it to the bathroom -- no windows so less Microparticles floating around -- and unwrap and quickly apply screen protector. I find it's better to do it at this point because the glass is factory clean and 100% dust free.
    3. Pop in the SIM from my previous iPhone and do a restore from backup on my iMac.
    4. Bring out the cases contenders and figure out which to keep.
    5. With the recent neutering of the App Store in iTunes I'll then re-download my apps.
    6. Re-pair all my devices
    7. Re-add my Apple Pay CCs
    8. With some sadness, decommission my previous iPhone, return to factory settings, re-pack in product box and put on eBay.
    9. Marvel at my new toy for a few days
    10. Peruse MR and other Apple Sites for info on the next iPhone (that I won't be buying but it's still fun to read about).

    I think there will be some enterprising people who will try that, buttID, willyID, vagID and boobID

    I can also imagine there will be FunnyFaceID (pulling funny faces) and FaceMaskID (wearing masks such as Halloween or starwars)

    Hmmm, what a genius idea to get more subs and views. Youtube views have been down lately, so I'll have to consider such thing to get more subs and views. :p:D:cool:

    On the other hand, this brings up a good question, who else will have an iphone x reveal and post it on their youtube channel? :Do_O

    I will probably get my iPhone all set up, apps organized, pair my S3 AW, etc. Probably try to take some artsy pictures of my cat and fish lol. I also need to go to a Verizon corporate store to try to get my account stuff switched around. I've got an extra line I don't need, a phone to trade in, and a balanced to pay off.

    Stupidly, in my rush to get my order in I had it shipped to my home. I won't be home until about 5:30 PM that day. So I will be sitting in my office worried that my phone gets home OK and that someone doesn't steal it from my doorstep. I really need to get a camera for my doorstep. #firstworldprobz

    Hope you have a signature in UPS or FedEx! That was my worry is that it would keep shipping to my house when I am not at home and the shipment requires a signature. Just a heads up ;)

    I'm doing in-store pickup to ensure I get it that day. Just going after work to get it since I didn't get off for launch day this year.
