    I have the note 8 and the X caught my attention so I pre-ordered from att today hopefully I like it for my second device.
    I saw the iPhone X up for preorder on Verizon but when I curiously went through the upgrade process it said I’d lose my promotion which is hard to do. Verizon is paying $27 per month of my $31 phone installment plan. If I upgraded to the X, I’d have to trade in my iPhone 7 and lose the promotion and I’d be paying $42 per month for my phone rather than $4.

    It’s so tempting to upgrade but this makes it very tough to do so.

    I hear ya, but hey, how bad do you want it? Do you want it bad enough to fork over the $42 a month? Personally, I’m surprised that I’m not craving the iPhone X....not even a little bit and that scares me...(laughing)

    A free iPhone 7 or $1000 ($42 per month) X.

    Same reason I haven’t traded in my 12’ Acura TSX for a new TLX. FREE feels really good right now, haha. Especially since I just dropped $430 on an Apple Watch Series 3.

    There is something to say for that in this world of instant gratification. It’s become the norm to always want the latest and greatest even if what we currently have works fine. We have been programmed to think this way.

    Most people with apple devices are turned off by the price of the X. At first I thought the same but going off of Apples history the X will probably be a stunning device just need to pay the price.

    Tried to pre order the X on the 27th but I wan unable to because the only option that I had was to tie it to a carrier. So my only option is to go through Best Buy where I have to pay an additional $100. Currently lost interest because I refuse to do post paid and paying an additional $100 sounds absurd.

    I have a 7 that works just fine for me. I’ll wait a bit, buy a used 8 plus for a decent price, and continue to be happy without spending top dollar.

    I was excited for the X but my desire for a headphone jack combined with the joy of not having a monthly phone installment payment has kept me appreciating my 6s
