    Website was incredibly quick too. Paid straight up for it and didn't have to bother with any carrier nonsense.

    Split launches help, the many color options helps.

    Yeah - that was really easy! I've had a pretty easy time the past couple launches but this seemed REALLY fast. I was surprised that there are no Apple cases for the XR, though!

    Agreed that this year’s online buying experience was the most efficient yet.

    We shall see, I guess. It's incredibly odd for it not to be in the store for pre-order, though. That is VERY different than every other iPhone pre-order experience since the 4.

    Got mines, 128GB red. Ordering was a breeze, which ever carrier you choose when paid in full, is unlocked for all carriers. :D

    I can’t stand carrier pre orders. Made that mistake with 7...

    Even with a massive fumble on our end when it asked for the serial number of a phone we were trading in that my husband forgot to charge...and we had to fetch it from his account, I got my Xr ordered.

    Dang, no non-carrier/sim free model at launch. Guess I’ll be waiting for a few weeks (hopefully not months).

    I wish the Apple store app wasn’t acting weird for me. Still got my order in through ATTs website before apples app or website would load for me which is usually the opposite. I wanted to walk in and pick up but I will wait for it to arrive at my job Friday.

    Yeah, but they are all unlocked and when I ordered it let me move on pass the AT&T nonsense and said activate with carrier later. That is fine by me! Long as it's unlocked like the sim free phones.

    If you pay full price, what you get is an unlocked phone regardless of the carrier you choose.
    --- Post Merged, Oct 19, 2018 ---
    Yep, I did the same. All we have to do is pop our current sims in the phones when they arrive and we're good to go.

    Interesting! It depends on which carrier I pick, but I'm showing unavailable for pick up for 64GB/256GB yellow for a lot of them. Still delivers 10/26, though!
