    Got my confirmation number. Just screwed up and did the carrier upgrade instead of buying it as a separate phone. So now I have to wait for them to get ATT onboard to get me a phone.

    Got a 256GB Space Gray preordered at T-Mobile.

    Have a 256GB Space Gray and 256GB Silver preordered at the Apple Store for launch date pick-up.

    Will likely be cancelling the T-Mobile preorder.

    2-3 weeks shipping time for T mobile. Not as bad as I have thought. Was expecting 2-3 months at least given the shortage rumor. Preorerded silver 256 GB on T-mobile. Have a pixel 2 XL sitting next to me. Decision decision. Should I return to the dark side?

    So its fucking 12:52am, im fucking tired and T-Mobile's site is still complete dog shit.


    You click the skip trade in offer, its supposed to take you to a page to select your iphone x variant and all im seeing are iphone 7 and iphone 8 choices, i mean its not even there. The site is moving normally now, its quick, but the option to pick the X is just not there anymore.


    Fucking annoying, at this point its probably going to be a month + wait i think. Gonna give up at this point.




    I have 2 clients that work for T-mobile, going to see if they can pull a string or two tomorrow from their retail stores.

    I got a pre-order through apple.com but since I had forgotten the PIN number for the Sprint account I'm on I couldn't get the order in on time so I have to wait 4-5 weeks for it to ship. Not a big deal but if I knew the PIN number sooner I would have secured it for launch day. I tried the Sprint site too but it was going painfully slow and when I finally got to the page to order, the only option was to add a new line for the phone which is not what I wanted to do of course.

    No way I'm going to beta test their first attempt at OLED plus FaceID. I went with the 8 Plus and zero stress. It's silly to pass up a mature platform that they've perfected for years. I'll jump to the X v.2 next year after all the bugs are worked out.

    Ok so after I said fuck it and went to bed last night, gave it one more shot through t-mobile in bed and it went through!

    And it’s showing a delivery of this coming Friday! Hell yes.

    T-Mobile's website had the estimated ship date as 11/2-11/3 since 12 minutes before the iPhone X was supposed to officially go up for preorders until well over an hour afterwards. I wouldn't count your blessings yet about a launch date delivery as that just doesn't seem to fall in line at all with other carriers or the Apple Store whose launch date delivery phones almost all were sold within 5 minutes. But I wish you the best of luck and hope you do get that launch date delivery! :D

    Lol I know, I have hope though. Got the wife the 8 after 30 minutes of midnight fail last month but got it on actual date the following week. I know this is a different beast but I’m confident :p

    John Legere tweeted that the dates are accurate, but I'm still hesitant to believe my phone will be here day one after the fiasco of an hour I spent ordering it at launch last night. The estimates have also been pushed out as of this morning.

    Guess the "severe stock shortage and massive demand" was a bunch of over-hyped BS...

    I had a feeling it was accurate. Mine is saying Friday, day 1 and I placed my order at like 1:15am because I couldn’t get to the part to even specify which iPhone X I wanted because the site kept crashing. Needless to say, really happy I’ll get it day 1!


    + John is a badass lol, if he says it’s accurate I’m sure it is lol.


    Or just servers kept crashing and people weren’t able to check out and gave up lol.

    At least for Tmobile, maybe. The Apple site apparently said 4-5 weeks after about 5 min.


    My favorite part about last night was selecting the "Pre-Order iPhone X" button, getting to the page where you select what phone you want, and only having options for iPhone 7s and 8s. Apparently, this wasn't the case for everyone, but it happened to a ton of people over at Reddit (including me, obviously lol). I ended up having to call 611 and ordering through them. After about 10 min on hold, the first rep forwarded me to a sales rep. After another 10 min or so, the sales rep answers and tells me the first lady misunderstood what I wanted, and I had to be forwarded back to customer care because the sales people can only do new lines or accounts (not just upgrades). Spent another 10 or so minutes on hold, and finally got a rep that took my order with no problems. All together, it took me right about an hour. They also charged me $20 for ordering by phone, but I got it credited back this morning after telling them the only reason I called was because their stupid website was messed up.

    That said, there was a Tmobile phone rep posting on Reddit last night that was saying it really wasn't nearly as busy as they were expecting. People were speculating that the high down payments + the overall cost of the phone may have driven demand down a bit at Tmobile.

    I ordered one about 10 minutes ago. Everything went smoothly on T-Mo's website.

    I saw Sprint had a trade in deal for the iPhone X and that my iPhone 6 was eligible for the trade so I went for that instead of going through with the pre-order on Apple.com. According to what it says on the Sprint website, my iPhone X will ship out on 11/14 but I'm skeptical of the date for now.

    I had to order 17 of them through the Verizon business website. Everything was pretty much unusable until about 12:30. I still managed to pre order them all but have to wait a week longer to get them. At one point I had them all in my cart and ready to go and it just dumped me back to the portal homepage with an empty cart.

    I really wish Apple sold unlocked non-carrier phones on pre order day. They would have made a cool +20 grand from me alone.

    I’d have bought two unlocked ones as well. Not 20 but still.

    Also the Verizon phones should have the Qualcomm modem that’s auooosdd to have better voice and call quality than the intel supplied ones in the ATT phones

    Got charged for my 64gb silver through Tmobile today, so I'm looking good for a release day delivery (they don't charge until your phone is going to ship).
