    Default T Mobile Store "Very Busy" with Pre Orders

    I was at two local T Mobiles stores today of which both where packed with folks pre ordering the new iPhone 7. The new mat black model seemed to be the popular one.

    I know folks will tell me this is typical for new models, but with all the reviews says it a minor upgrade from a 6s, both stores said they where surprised and very happy the pre orders for the new phone where in such demand.

    I waited over 45 minutes before I was waited on, but in the end I will have my shiny new gold 128 model in two weeks.

    I'm not surprised and I'm sure the other wireless carrier stores were just as busy.

    Makes sense. They seem to have a pretty good deal going on. I'm not entirely sure of all the details so I'm probably calling them today.

    I told myself I wouldn't upgrade. Then I saw the keynote with my class for 5 periods and went home and ordered one. The power of marketing and persuasion. Steve jobs always compelled me to upgrade with his keynote.

    They have a novel new way to lock you in. You trade in your old iPhone, you get the new iPhone 7 for "free" BUT you must agree to make 24 payments for it, that they agree to credit you back for each month. So it all works out IF you keep the phone for the 2 years. Only the base model is totally free other models there are up-charges you pay up front.


    PS They are ALL doing it, Verizon, ATT and possibly Sprint too. (I know for sure Verizon and AT&T have VERY similar deals)

    Yes, if they have a phone on the 16th, or you can order one.. and swap out when phone is available for pickup. Remember it's a carrier deal, so depending on carrier and store (company owned or authorized) your mileage may vary (slightly)
