    this might be premature...but are we assuming that the iphone 7+ cases will fit the 8+? that's my understanding so far.

    Just had a thought while looking if Verizon will do what they did last year and offer "$650 off" promotions (might have to wait a week or so to see).

    I noticed the Galaxy Note 8 is $960 for 64 GB. What if all these "iPhone X will start at $999" rumors was Apple's way of trolling Samsung? What if they "leaked" this information, similar to the first iPad pricing rumors?

    What if, today they change their entire structure? Not likely, but they could do something like this.

    I'm looking forward to the event.

    I'm holding out for either the iPhone 8 (or X or whatever) or the Note 8. The Note 8 "wowed" me. Hopefully the iPhone will do the same.

    Yes, it wasn't a jab at the price. I just made me think "That is an odd price, like when the iPhone plus models went to $769" Made me think "Oh, they just want to be under the rumored $999 of the iPhone X, and just in case Apple goes with the price of their current highest priced model, the iPhone 7 Plus 256 GB of $969, it is still lower priced"

    I'm already nervous for the early morning ordering of the 8 plus! Which GB phone will sell the least?? I'm thinking the higher the GB the more slowly it will sell?

    I don't think they will fit. Apple was going to flip the cameras on the back or so the rumor went.

    it could really go either way. those who don't want to pay $100+ in downpayments will opt for the 32gb which is usually "free" (in terms of up front payments). but then there are people like me who really love the 256gb storage option and will opt for going big or going home.

    the last couple releases i was working night shift so i'd step outside in the middle of the night and call tmobile to order. got what i wanted every time with minimal time spent waiting on hold. two weeks later UPS brings it to me. i wouldn't do it any other way.

    You called them...and got through! I have ATT. I get a new phone every year, because I love phones. I leave for nepal in 4 weeks, so I need it to ship quickly. If not then I'll take my chances in the store.

    yep! but i literally called the MINUTE the lines opened for orders. i stayed on hold for....ehh...10 min? if that. i ordered during the iphone 6 explosion too. and got exactly the one i wanted. rose gold. which was the fastest one to sell out. i know tmobile dedicates a whole section of their workforce to handle iphone preorders. which is nice cause if i call in for something else, i'm not waiting on hold for 3 hours.

    I'm going in after the keynote today and talk to ATT and see if the have a call in, I also ha e to pay off my last 31$ payment on my iPhone 7. I was part of the note 7 fiasco last year and ended up, because of 7 plus back order, with the iPhone 7. Good phone, but I really wanted to plus

    Super stoked! I've gotten the iPhone color and storage I've wanted when doing preorders so I'm hoping this year will be the same. I don't even know what color I want this year!

    I cannot wait to see iOS 11 at work on the new iPhone!

    Yes. I think it has to be some sorta Apple device in order to watch the keynote.

    I believe you can watch it on a Windows 10 machine on Edge only. Won't show on Firefox or Google.

    True. One of our members couldn't get it to load on Chrome.
