Just preordered my XS Max upg from the 256gb 8+; Normally I pay off the remaining $$ and sell my existing handset on eBay and end up getting a slightly better deal than the straight trade-in, looking that way this year too.  I was *just* about to just trade in mine for the ~$475 or so I had left to go, but then I looked at eBay again 😉

 

This morning, the going rate was ~$525 and I was like 'well that's a bummer, minus fees i might as well just do the Next trade-in.  I looked this afternoon and suddenly we're past $750 for used ones and inventories are gone on the ATT versions from most of the resellers. 😉

So I have had an absolute mess of a time trying to order my iPhone XS. had att and apple both loaded last night before midnight, because in the past I've had issues with att servers. at midnight attempted att and was getting major delays, so went thru apple store.. was attempting to purchase thru the att installment plan and chose that option, but at my summary it showed my full balance of the phone and nothing about installment. called this morning and was told that the phone was ordered outright without installment plan, so around 10 am after spending 2 hours on the phone with apple and att being told I wasn't the only one with this issue, I pre-ordered thru att. At the moment the Att status says arriving 9/21 but I'm not holding my breath. I haven't canceled the apple preorder as of yet just to be on the safe side. worse case scenario I return the apple phone when it arrives. Also had no option for in store pick up on either site.. which really was a bummer.

This was the exact same thing that happened to me when I tried to preorder through the Apple store this morning when preorders opened...I got all the way to the part where you're supposed to select your payment plan/financing method.  Even though I selected AT&T, I was not presented with any AT&T "Next" program options.  I am on the "Next Every Year" plan and that was how I wanted to go with the new iPhone purchase.  Instead, all I got was the "pay in full" option.  It was at that point that I gave up on the Apple store and preordered through AT&T.  Everything seems OK in that I got the phone model I wanted, with a delivery date of 9/21 (assuming AT&T doesn't slip the ship date as they have been known to do in the past.)  I have yet to have a "clean" experience ordering iPhones on preorder launch day, and I've been preordering iPhones since the original iPhone.

 

Strange and interesting that this year, it was Apple that screwed up, and AT&T that came through (so far anyways)

Yea I think it happened to allot of people and they just don’t realize it.... there’s going to be some mad customers when they get charged in full the day the phone ships if that’s the case.

I am so freaking screwed. I got my order in at 5:05est the alarm did not go off. If it wasn’t for my 9 yr old waking me to ask ”hey mom did you order it yet?” I would have still been asleep longer. I hole there isn’t any not enough phones issues like always. Because I have been with At&T for 10 years and I have been to the point of stupidity for the bill amount I pay each month so they better hook a momma up.
