    Just curious with the high price tag how do you paln to purchase your iPhone X? The reason I have said UK only is because we don't sign up with carriers via Apple like other counties do, we either do the IUP or pay outright with Apple or buy directly from the carriers.

    Going to order via the Apple upgrade program and order through EE and see what comes first

    Going via carrier as this works out cheaper over all for me after doing the maths.

    I'm just going to buy outright.

    It's the most hassle free way.

    Buy outright from Apple asap, phone will probably arrive early 2018 if I'm lucky!

    I still haven't decided between IUP and buying outright, I'm happy to do either but i'll go with whichever means I get it sooner!

    I have no choice but to wait till 04/11 as this is my early upgrade date and I cannot do it a moment sooner.

    Pay outright sim free... but from another store in switzerland.
    First time i'm using another source than apple, but only because they let me reserve it early. (was limited to 5000 customers, split between the X and 8, right after the keynote.)

    Buying it out right. Contracts are way too expensive.

    Next year I hope to do that and then just stick with a sim only tariff on top.

    I'm not sure on which route to take, I have the 7+ on the IUP and a sim only plan so could go with any option - buy outright, renew IUP or take out a contract. If I go with the IUP and hand my 7+ back to clear the existing loan which has about £400 left on it i'll be worse off than selling it privately and clearing the loan myself so I'm really stumped with what to do!

    How can you possibly know that at this point?

    I think I’m going to wait until next year to buy mine, hopefully there’ll be some good deals by then (like I got with my current 6S+)

    I am going to buy sim free outright from Apple as I have been doing for several years now. I don't like having phone contracts anymore.

    Outright using the app. Don’t want the extra steps of IUP or risk operators. Have already transferred the money from a 0% credit card and set up a regular payment to clear it after 2 years.

    If I get one...non upgrade payment plan.

    I could just pay it all upfront, but I'd rather not be £1000 down in one go.

    Still not 100% set anyway, Im really not fond on the inflated price.
    Just over a month until I decide.
