    Who else ordered from Best Buy? I clicked preorder with 2 seconds of button going live and completed check out in less then 2 minutes with an expected in store pick up of Nov 3rd. I actually work in mobile department at Best Buy I ordered from so anxious to see how many we actually get!

    I ordered from Best Buy because they were the only ones still showing an 11/3 pick-up date. **fingers crossed**

    Never tried any other store besides Apple. There were a lot of issues from the other forum ordering through Apple because that’s where most people go to. I got lucky and was able to do Store pick up on Nov 3rd but there are so many people in the thread who got frustrated. Maybe I’ll try Best Buy next time.

    I’m surprised at the success stories involving career and 3rd party preorders. I went with Apple this year due to issues with AT&T last year.

    We’ll see I’m still nervous that it won’t be ready the 3rd or something...

    I’m always hesitant with Best Buy for preorders of highly demanded devices. It just seems they probably request a certain number but don’t know exactly how many they are actually going to get on launch day until they get them. And then you have to wait for them to call you to schedule a time to pick up the device. And sometimes that call never comes, on launch day.

    My experience has been the pick up orders have to go to the mobile section. So it’s not like you can just go to customer service and pick up there. No, you had to actually sit with someone. Maybe they have tweaked this process but I will probably always have these reservations with them.

    I got mine through Best Buy too. I had so many issues with Apple and BB was showing 11-3 delivery. We'll see if it works out. I'm cautiously optimistic.

    Glad to hear you got one. I got mine on Verizon's site it was a piece of cake with a 11/3 delivery. So excited!

    As far as applecare goes, I kinda wanted to do the iphone upgrade program with Apple for the X but their site got way too overloaded for me so I grabbed one while I could on VZW. Can I buy applecare separately?

    Yeah you can. I got mine through Best Buy. But you van contact Apple products go into a store and get it added after the fact. I hope my Best Buy order actually comes through on Friday like they claim. The Apple website was a cluster for me.

    Ok awesome. I also always wondered how the Apple Care worked with the IUP. They factor it in to the monthly payment, but what if you upgrade every year? Then you only would have paid for half the Apple Care coverage?

    I would assume so since every Verizon phone comes unlocked

    New user here but longtime reader. I ordered 2 silver 256gb verizon Xs and both say November 3rd delivery as well. Although my gf got the color she wanted i would love to trade mine in for space gray if possible. I considered ordering but the wait is now going until mid December

    I just realized that Best buy pre-order is charging extra $100 more for iPhone X 256gb model. It's $1149 in apple store but Best buy is selling it for $1249. I just cancelled my order

    Best Buy always charges $100 more for some stupid reason.

    I believe that’s only if you buy at full price... monthly payments are same as carriers.

    Sounds about right when considering it’s Best Buy.

    I got mine through BB on the AT&T payment plan and it’s the same as if I went through AT&T or Apple. It’s just the full price. I believe it’s to deter people from buying at full price. Best Buy gets money from carriers, I believe, for each phone bought on their plans through Best Buy.

    That is correct which is totally understandable considering they will only have limited quantities although I believe they do it for almost every phone

    Mine still says pick up by 11/3 so I’ll be at my Best Buy about 30 minutes before they open. Not taking any chances here

    After all the mess with apple upgrade program I ended up going through Best Buy. My initial order indicated a 11/10 pick up date when I went back and added the apple care to my order the date changed to 11/3. So I will see what happens.

    "Can I have the iPhone X I order on BestBuy.com shipped to my home?

    Phones activated onto Sprint or AT&T service can be shipped to your home. Phones activated onto Verizon service must be picked up in your local Best Buy store."

    Got this off the BestBuy FAQ's support forum. Is this the case? I don't want to worry about my phone not working when I get it?
