    Likely Apple first. I know my carrier will not have it in stock on Friday. You could call T-Mobile to confirm.

    I decided not to take a chance on that and just unpacked my brand-new SE 64GB obtained from T-Mobile NL at a price exactly halfway between those of the new 32 and 128GB models.

    I'm gonna wait until tomorrow to see what happens. Hopefully TMo will get the newer storage SE versions or maybe discount the current 64GB one.

    Either way I'll be picking up an SE by Saturday from them.

    Quick update. T-Mobile will be selling the new storage SE versions tomorrow morning at 8 AM PST. I would assume that the other 3 big carriers will be doing the same. Apparently this will not be just an Apple store/online exclusive.

    T mobile was great for me when I bought my se last October. I paid full price and got it unlocked quickly. Is the se not a universal phone like the 6s? I thought they were all basically the same phone unlike the 7.

    I believe you are correct Vince Black. The T-Mobile version of the SE is universal.... at least that's what an Apple rep told me a while back. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Yessir! Love that show along with many other 80s/90s action shows. Dutch Dixon was a great villain.

    Back to the SE..... I'm either gonna pick up the 32GB (or the 64GB if it's being discounted for the same price).

    I know that Apple said the only difference is going to be the storage upgrade - but does anyone else think that they may upgrade other components as well like fixing the rattling power button and possibly make it more water resistant???

    Unfortunately not. Apple likely only upgraded the storage. And at a $400 price point, they won't make any other physical changes to the The chassis or water resistance.

    I Agree that the power button was annoying when I owned the SE, it would rattle. Great iPhone though.
