    Welcome to the thread for the T-Mobile 2018 iPhone pre-order thread.

    If the rumors and leaks are true; which iPhone will you be getting? And are you using the T-Mobile App, t-mobile.com, Preordering at a T-Mobile store or just camping out on launch day.

    Let us know.

    This thread will be updated on new information when the New iPhones are launched.

    Official Apple Announcement September 12, 2018.


    If everything is true I’m going for the highest GB iPhone(even though I don’t need it), the largest phone size and the gold color.

    Going for the Gold color Xs, lowest gig as I have 64g and haven’t used half of it even a year later lol. I’m on the fence about an Xs Max.. so have the 8+ now and am not sure I want the big form factor anymore.

    Right?! The only reason I got the plus in the past was for the camera and now that the X has he same camera I can go back to the smaller form factor. Wish I would of done it last year but was scared by no Touch ID lol I’ve played with the X enough now where I NEED it

    I am going to get a Xs Max (or whatever they end up calling it) 256gb in either Gold or Space Gray. I will probably put the black leather Apple case on it and I just think the black and gold will look nice around the camera cut out.

    I wonder if T-Mobile and other carriers will have a trade-in promo for this years launch.

    Keeping an eye on T-Mobile and Apple both. Reason being is because whoever gives the best trade in deal will get my 8+ and then I can get the most affordable iPhone possible. If that's the 9, I will go with the 9. I am hoping to get a free XS w/ a trade in of my 8+ on a 2 year agreement thanks to Band 71 LTE and T-Mobile being ultra competitive.

    I’m on the IUP but I’ve just finished out my two years with Sprint since switching to get my 7+ that my wife is now using. Sprint is horrible and we plan on leaving so hopefully AT&T will have some deal at launch so we can switch back.

    AT&T is bringing 5G to Charlotte first so it would be nice to get on the network before the tech rolls out and eventually makes it to iPhone

    It's too early to tell with 5G on an iPhone, especially since it took till the 5 to get LTE on an iPhone.

    So this is my first year pre-ordering with Tmobile- Which is the best method fo getting your iPhone faster in case of shortages? Phone, the web, or the app?

    Not sure since this is the first time T-Mobile allows IUP customers to go online rather than just in store. You'll just be added to later shipments if you're a little late on the pre-orders.

    Does anyone know if you do the IUP will it cancel my jump or is it a separate thin? I have jump on demand and I’m trying to get the phone as fast and cheap as possible. T-mobile charged $279 down last year and I’m hoping to not do that this year. I’m looking at the Xs Max

    I was thinking about getting less storage but with my luck, I’ll get something smaller and then need more space a week later.

    Do you mean ordering directly through T-mobile or from Apple selecting T-mobile as the carrier?

    Not 100% but they’re separate upgrade programs from different companies so it shouldn’t.

    I’d check out the T-Mobile reddit page, might find more info there.

    It’s 2 different programs. IUP doesn’t require that down payment. You just pay taxes and first month installment. Jump charges that big down payment so as to keep your monthly payments low. Personally I prefer IUP. On the other hand you never know what specials TMO May offer. Just know that their phones are always locked till paid off.

    Will the new iPhones X’s have the same screen as the first x? If so I might have to do a hard pass. I hated the x screen.
    Pentile, off axis color shifts. Bleh.

    IN!

    Debating joining the Apple IUP even though I’m “enrolled” in TMO’s. Guess we’ll see as the time gets closer.

    One thing is for sure. It’ll be a sh*tshow with TMO’s website and customer service when orders go live. Ahhh, I love this time of year lol.

    I need to open a new line for my daughter next year. I planned to open it this year to take advantage of the inevitable bogo deal Tmobile will have. I’m going to use all my willpower to try and hold off until next year to open the line. I’m hoping to just buy a oneplus 6t or pixel 3 to hold me over until 2019. The X plus seems pretty nice, though.

    I recall last year the process was smooth I didn’t hear any stories of website crashes maybe this year the website will improve?

    Was the app smooth last year for preordering?
