    I just want to know my true status, that's not too much to ask.
    What's your current status?

    I went to T-Mo yesterday. AT&T have horrible coverage at home and I constantly get 'no signal' on my phone. I've been considering switching to T-Mo anyway and especially since they introduced the Unlimited data for $70 this month.

    I went in and swapped my contract and made a casual enquiry about the iPhone 7 Plus, thinking they would want to lock me into a two year contract at a high price. Instead, they said they would take my iPhone 6 plus $100 and give me a matte black iPhone 7 plus 128Gb with no monthly phone payment and only the $70 plus tax unlimited plan charge. What's more, no contract so I can cancel whenever.

    It was all I could do to bite their hand off before they changed their mind.

    So after the disappointment and frustration of my pre-order being bounced from the Apple site, it looks like i'm getting what I want now anyway and I can upgrade in a year's time to the new iPhone by handing in the 7 plus and doing the same, with no extra money down then either. I can also use it in the UK at no extra charges, using my US plan, unlike AT&T which charged through the roof.

    Yes, i'm a happy bunny for switching from AT&T to T-Mobile.

    I switched from AT&T about 2 years ago and have been happy I made the switch. I was a little hesitant at first, but I'm glad I switched.

    At first I was going to do the wait in line thing on release day. Until I called the sprint store & they said that they might not have what I want that day. So I decided not to take that risk & I pre ordered mine lastnight at 9:30pm. I ordered the 128gb in black w/a ship by date of 9/30.

    Even if they had it.... it may be gone before you get in the door. When the 6 came out.. even a couple weeks later in store, (Apple and AT&T) in Portland (the stores I picked/called), I could only get a 6 Gold 32GB. That's the only item left in stock.

    When the 6 came out I was the first person in the stores parking lot. I was able to park my car directly infront of the stores door. I wasn't playing since I didn't pre order. I just had to have the new iphone on release day!

    My T-Mo status said order placed 9/10...but it was placed on 9/9. Oh well. And also they incorrectly spelled my name on payment info...would that cause an issue?

    Status says being processed...

    You may want to call in and update/verify that everything is good to go. Just in case?

    Got my 5S at Radio Shack of all places, no one was there.. just walked in and got one. It's the one my wife is still using. Drove past lines back then at AT&T and Best Buy.. and no one at Radio Shack in Corvallis OR of all places.. Wonder if they still sell iPhones, if you can find one still in business.

    I remember when that was like the best alternative place to get iPhones. Nowadays though, seems like even places like Best Buy, Target, Walmart don't have iPhones in stock for months.
    Back when the 6s's came out, a cellphone kiosks in the malls here weren't carrying them until January.

    I got up at 2:30am Eastern so I could order our phones, Apple store didn't come online (refreshed constantly) until 3:15am Eastern. I ordered my wife's phone first, 7 Plus 256GB Matte Black on AT&T and it was an immediate shipping window of 6-8 business days, so she gets her a week after me. It wouldn't even allow me to do store pickup.

    Then I ordered my 7Plus 256GB Rose Gold on AT&T and I got 9-16 with in store pickup and any range in the day that I wanted so I opted for 8:30am so I can get it on the way to work. I guess the matte black was as popular as the jet black.

    My rep was supposed to place my order for me but she told me late on Friday that she could not. Now she is on the path to try and get me one for in store pickup on the 16th so I don't have to wait until the 5th of October.

    Same here, my local guy is doing the same. Had a family remember at the other company I was with previously. So I wouldnt have to worry about ordering. Just told her which phones I wanted and she would put it in for me.

    Are your preorders showing as Preparing For Shipment, and has the tax amount been charged?

    It's actually a few radio shacks around my area. They even advertise as "sprint" stores but they're still radio shack. Idk why I haven't been in one of those store in ages. That's probably why the thought never crossed my mind to check there.

    kinda throws me off that it says preparing for shipment and my card was charged. I thought they charged once the phone ships??

    It's only the pre-authorization charge. It might say "pending" on your bank account. The actual charge doesn't finalize until it's shipped.

    Preordered a black 7+, 128 GB on Verizon last night. Estimated delivery is 10/12 but I'm hoping it arrives a bit sooner. Sadly, I'm a bit nervous about my color choice - I've had the white faceplate since back in the 4S days!
    And I cancelled this one fir a 256 GB Silver 7+. I'll be happier in the long run.

    I thought the preauthorizations were only for $1, instead of the sale amount? Is this a change due to the installment plans being implemented?

    Not sure about the installment plans. I've had the pre-authorization charge for everything I ordered, but in separate amounts. (A charge for each individual device basically) instead of the full total.

    That's how mine show up, but I remember $1 being authorized to ensure the payment method is valid. I'm still curious to see why my status shows as Preparing For Shipment, despite my shipping timeframe to be next month. I can't wait for the updates to start coming this week.

    Interesting. I didn't see that $1 charge, although I think I remember something like that happening when I ordered the Apple TV.

    As far as your shipping status...that is kind of weird.
    I too and anxious to see what happens come Monday with the updates. I could be wrong, but I think last year there was a two week period between pre-order and shipping? I remember people tracking their phones as they left China.
