I’ll probably end up joining the iUP and get the base 64gb 11 Pro in white/silver. Don’t care for the larger size with 18:9 aspect ratios but really want the OLED. Storage situation sucks but I’m only using about 32.5GB so I’ll be fine.

Maybe buy one get one 11 with new line. Any benefits to buying through apple vs verizon and sim free vs verizon? Paid in full if they matters. I want to be able to use FI when I travel internationally and use verizon on the esim the rest of the time.

I will be using one of my lines upgrade to buy the phone 11 pro max 256 gb and give my xs 256gb to my son. I am on the fence for about my color selection. I like the gold and the sg now.

I'm glad they went back to a black color. The gold is looking nice, too.

Pre-ordering a 256 GB 11 Pro Max in Space Gray on Friday. Really glad pre-ordering starts at 8 AM EST. I'm hoping Verizon's servers can handle the influx of orders although everyone is predicting these will not sell well. I remember pre-ordering my 6 Plus and it took several hours before my order finally went through.

Thanks for starting this thread..

Birthday is tomorrow and wife wants me to upgrade lol even though I’ve told her I’m fine with my 8 Plus. She just upgraded last week to the XS Max and the kid got an XR as part of a Verizon BOGO deal.

So I’m the only one without Face ID and Animojis.

Thinking about it... but if I pull the trigger it will be an 11 Pro Max in Midnight Green.

How is Verizon with shipping? When does the phone usually arrive? And is the program similar to Apple upgrade?

I personally have not had any issues with shipping when I've pre-ordered with VZ. They ship via FedEx and my phone has always arrived on launch day. I think the only difference between VZ Upgrade and Apple upgrade is that Apple includes AppleCare +. Maybe someone else can chime in on that? I've never used the Apple Upgrade program.

Both my wife and myself are currently on a prepaid ATT plan, are there any issues with preordering on Friday since we plan on switching to Verizon? I have our account details and PIN, also saw that we need the IMEI as well from each phone. Anything else to be aware of?

Thank you! And the payments are added to the bill?

Yep. I've always upgraded thru VZW... same 0% added to the bill. Been with them since before there were smartphones... started in 1998 with a Nokia candy bar.

Same here but never used their upgrade program. Is there a credit check?

I've pre-ordered through Verizon for several iPhones and the phones were always delivered on release day. I have a feeling demand is not going to be high this year so I'm not worried about any delays.

Thank you! When do they usually let us pre order?

Not sure about the credit check. I've been with them so long without missing a payment I get whatever I want... LOL

Preorders go live the same as with Apple.

I'm disappointed Verizon hasn't released more information about their iPhone 11 preorder process, such as whether they will be offering a trade-in program like Apple. It's just a couple of days away!

I don't see why they wouldn't offer trade ins on devices that are paid off. Every time I go to the site I get the option to do that whenever I'm looking at devices.
