    I saw that thread. I probably will hear it too. But it’s very rare I talk on the phone using air buds so it’s a none issue for me. I’m pretty sure it’s one iOS patch away from resolving it.

    Oh you use air buds. It won’t bother ya then. I hope you don’t experience it. I agree I think it’s a patch away as well. Apple is rushing me a new one but it’s probably pointless. I’m on T-Mobile too.

    Had to be within the past couple of days. I looked Thursday because I wanted the SS case, and they didn't have them. Now it looks like they do.

    My guess; prop next to impossible. Best bet might be ordering directly from apple.com

    If paying cash, you may have better luck buying straight from Apple full price. They’ll sell it like that with no issue, just not if you want the iup. Otherwise you’d have to go in. I’d bank on straight from Apple before T-Mobile.

    I think Tmobile may be your best bets actually. With Apple being the only other retailer of the Tmobile variant I think Tmobile will probably have the most as most people will be buying on a Tmobile EIP.

    Yeah Apple is your best bet. I pre-ordered from T-Mobile and they lost my order, now are telling me to re-order it again. I may just wait for the X now.. I don't know. I wish I chose Apple.

    I was able to walk into a T-Mobile store this morning and get an 8 Plus with Jump On Demand; I was surprised they had some in stock but now that I see analysts are predicting demand isn't very strong, it makes sense. I wasn't planning on getting the 8 since I had a 7 Plus, but thanks to JOD, I was able to get one at no cost and I'll still be able to get an X when they go on Preorder.

    Apple store app is going to be my first choice, but if you have more than one device, I would have both fired up and ready to go, one on Apple and one on t-mobile. You never know.... I do think shipping times will slip within the first 2 or 3 minutes.

    I think they all do. Not always, every call, or all the time, but they all seem to. Apple is sending me a free express replacement I called on Sat, but it still hasn’t shipped and I’m not worried about it. I hope it doesn’t ship until a later build. Hopefully they patch it via software update.

    How lenient is T-Mobile when it comes to unlock policy? Does it really need to be fully paid off before they unlock for you? I’ve heard both versions. And how easy is their unlocking process? I remember years back AT&T would require you to connect your phone with iTunes or something.

    Last year all the T-Mobile stores around here got zero 7 Pluses to sell on launch day. I would guess that's gonna be your answer. If not zero, just a few max and I would bet against it.

    I was hoping TMobile would have the Stainless Steel AWS3 but when I called them today they don’t offer it. Is that what you were referring to at all or am I just reading this wrong?! Sucks because the Stainless Steel Space Black 42MM is the one I want.

    No, you're right. I called them last night and I got the same answer as you. I chalked it up to a clueless rep though. Their web site clearly has the SS and SBSS in 38mm and 42mm. I may call back later today and see.

    When I asked the rep about the SS case, he went into talking about the different bands, so I knew I had to cut the conversation short.

    Waiting for my local store to get more 8 models. I went a day after launch day and all they had were 8 64GB in gold at all the local stores near me.

    Actually good news! You can get one. I had to go in store to order one and they had me setup for one. So go to your local TMobile store and see if they will do it for you.

    Well they won’t let you do it over the phone for some reason. Not sure what the deal is there. But yes I ordered one today.

    That's awesome to hear! I live near a T-Mobile store, so I'll have to stop by.

    Do they have watches in store to try on?

    They had two in store. But only for try on’s. My local TMobile store had no AWS3 watches in stock though. I almost went with space grey and would just upgrade later. Sucks I had to have a down payment. That’s why I miss AT&T. TMobile told me they try to keep the EIP’s as low as they do hence the down payment. AT&T would finance me REGARDLESS even if my EIP through them was high.

    Good to know. I'm still undecided on whether I should get the 38mm or 42mm, so trying on the 42mm in the store would definitely help make up my mind.

    I actually don't mind the down payment since it keeps the monthly payments down. Although I can only imagine how much one would have to put down on the X when it's released.
