on twitter I have seen complaints about Verizon and AT&T also. A lot of people are saying delivery times are not the 16th. Some have said they were told November

Yea I did a upgrade. I signed out of my account, closed out my browser tab and typed back in sprints website and I clicked the pre order button on the landing page. I was asked to sign back in and it went through smoothly.

Sprints website just started working for me.  I was able to order 4 on my account.  All show that they will be delivered on 9/16.  I ordered (2) 32gb Rose Gold 7's and (2) 32gb Black 7's.

I hope the ship dates for the jet back are just overstated for 10/7. I looked at my confirmation email and said ship by 10/7.

I hope we all do too. Sprint already took the money off by debit card and I don't remember them doing that last year until the device shipped so we shall see.

Yeah we shall see. It looks like the shipping dates are matching exactly on Apple.com

 

I guess we wait until we get our tracking numbers which should be Wednesday

Sooo... I was on the iPhone forever (or for life? Can't remember which) and when I tried to upgrade it game me the option to do the 17 month lease for like $39/month. I noticed that for like 41 I could get it on apple with the yearly upgrade and apple care. Soooo... I did it.

But now I'm wondering what's going to happen with the remaining lease payments with sprint. Will I have to pay some sort of difference when I return my current phone to sprint?

What bugged me was having to put the $200 down payment. I have never had to do that before. A lot of people were saying they have November delivery dates. I hope it is not like when I ordered my 6+. They changed the delivery date twice. Waited over 12 weeks to get mine.

I thought I was the only one. When I did my 6 and s6 plus I just paid taxes. I thought sprint was just being funny with me having to pay $100 minus tax after I forced them to remove that ASL off my account 2 weeks ago without Autopay.

I'm going jet black with a spigen clear case. I do know it'll have some micro marks by I'm not too concerned with that due to I never sell my iPhones.

My wife has a Spigen Clear on her 6S. Too slippery for me. I'm going with the Apple Leather case on my 7+ so no one will know what color the phone is anyway. :) I am going with "Black" matte for the resale value uptick.

So was anyone able to get the free upgrade from 128GB to 256GB? I placed my order at around 4:15 and both the iPhone 7 and 7+ were showing a $100 up charge for the 256GB, so I just ordered the 128GB to be safe.

So I just spoke with Sprint and they basically said that if I stick to the Apple order, I'd have to pay about $220 that is remaining on my current lease. Alternatively, I can cancel the apple order and get it through sprint, get the phone and the lease that goes along with it to one of the lines that have old phones, or I can add a fourth line that would take over the lease. What do you guys think I should do?

I believe the delayed shipping happened with the introduction of the 6 and the 6S.

Ordered from sprint. I had to return the first 6+ I got because the order was wrong. Took 12 weeks and a couple of days before I got the right one. This was two years ago.

So it seems like we're going to move my phone and its lease to a line on the account that has an iPhone 5c - they'll be on the lease program and I'll be on the apple program going forward.

Bit late but 2 Black iPhone 7 Plus 128 GB ordered on 24 month installment. Ship by date of 9/30.

 

However I'm not getting a warm and fuzzy on how the trade in for the credit is going to work and there doesn't seem to be any FAQ related to the process.

 

I'm assuming I'll need to request a shipping package to mail the current phones to Sprint for the trade in credit but I'd rather take them to a corp store if possible.

I ordered an iPhone 7 today, but the order status page still shows nothing. Has it been updated for anyone else? I just want to make sure it went through ok.

      LIMITED TIME PROMOTION!!!
      YOU COULD POSSIBLY WIN A NEW iPHONE 8 IF YOU DONATE TO SUPPORT S4GRU
      **OR COMPARABLY PRICED ANDROID DEVICE!**

       
       
      The Goal
       
      The goal is to have some fun and raise some money to support S4GRU.  If we can raise enough money to cover the device by 8 PM Pacific Time on Friday, October 27th, then we will schedule the raffle.  The contest winner can select the color from what's available.  The winner can also select the carrier (not limited to Sprint).
       
      The Plan
       
      If we are able to raise at least as much as the device costs us plus incidental charges like taxes and shipping, we will add any additional proceeds to the S4GRU general fund.  If we can't raise enough, we will provide opportunity to refund.
       
      And which model it ends up being depends on how much money we can raise.  If we raise just $750, it will be the iPhone 8 64GB ($699 value).  For each additional $500 we collect beyond $750, we will give another $100 in toward upgrading to the iPhone 8+, iPhone X or memory/apple care upgrades.  The winner can select any variant or upgrades, but they will need to pay any cost difference, from the prize value.  Increases in prize vales will be announced in this thread.  THE WINNER CAN SELECT AN ANDROID DEVICE IN LIEU OF AN iPHONE, IF THEY CHOOSE.  Like a NOTE 8, Pixel 2, LG V30, Essential Phone, etc.  Equal of lesser value to the winning iPhone prize.
       
      The Raffle
       
      Each donation to the iPHONE 8 PROMO will receive a range of numbers, equating to one number for every dollar you donate.  The minimum donation to the cause is $10.  If you donate $10, you get a range of 10 numbers.  If you donate $100, you get a range of 100 numbers.  The more you donate, the greater your chances of winning.  There is no limit to the amount you can donate...in amount or frequency.  But it needs to be at least $10 per donation to the iPHONE 8 PROMO.
       
      You will receive a Private Message (or email if you are not a S4GRU member) from S4GRU giving you your numbers after your donation.  Most likely within 8-12 hours, but could take a day or two.
       
      We will stop accepting donations at 8PM Pacific on Friday, October 27th.  Any donations received after that time will not be counted toward this promotion.  Date and time of the drawing will be announced after the close of donations acceptance.  We will select a number at random using my random number generator app in my Pixel XL.  You do not need to be present in the live chat to win.
      All money donated to the raffle will be credited to your S4GRU accumulation total and will count toward future upgrades.  If you are not currently a S4GRU Sponsor, you will be given Sponsor status for six months with the minimum $10 raffle donation.

      To Enter
       
      Go to the S4GRU PayPal Donation section by clicking on this hyperlink or by by clicking the donate button in the upper right hand corner of most S4GRU pages.  Enter an amount you want to donate for this promotion, minimum $10.  In the notes section, tell us your screen name and type iPHONE 8 PROMO.  If you forget to do that in the PayPal donation, then send me a Message.  You will get a message response giving you your raffle numbers by 11 PM Pacific on 10/27/2017.  If you don't get them, message me.

      Rules
       
      S4GRU Membership is not required to enter.  S4GRU Staff Members and their families are ineligible to win.  Dollars spent on the promotion will count toward future member upgrades.  There is no cash value of the prize.  S4GRU will pay the shipping costs to send the prize to the winner.  The winner will be offered options as to network selections, device options and colors based on availability within the winning prize amount.   S4GRU cannot guarantee availability of any products, types, varieties or colors.  Although many devices can be used on several networks, S4GRU cannot guarantee operability on any network.  A SIM card purchase for the winner's preferred network may be required and is not paid by S4GRU.  This contest is void where prohibited.  Pre-scheduled automatic recurring payments to S4GRU during the contest period will not be eligible for entry in the contest.  Should the winner desire a phone other than the iPhone product offered at contest conclusion, they can request an Android device of equal or lesser value.  If a device more expensive than the iPhone offered is desired, the winner will need to pay the difference before the product will be ordered. If winner selects a less expensive phone than the prize offered, S4GRU will retain those funds as a donation.  The contest may be subject to amendment, extension or cancellation as necessary.  S4GRU reserves the right to provide a gift card or PayPal payment of the value of the prize for convenience or difficulty in sourcing the prize occurs.

      This came up in my Sprint feed of articles.  Not only do I think this is a smart move on Apple's part, but Brightstar is all over the place helping move these phones around the world.

      See: https://www.sprint.com/landings/iphone-ipad-bundle/
       
      Sprint just announced a new offer that bundles together the iPhone and iPad and waives the monthly cost of a 16GB iPad mini 3 when both are leased through the iPhone/iPad for Life program and a 2GB data plan is purchased for the tablet.
       
      So: A 16GB iPhone 6 on Sprint’s $50 Simply Unlimited plan and a 16GB iPad mini 3 with a $30 2GB data plan will run $100 per month after the iPad’s monthly lease rate is erased in the form of a $17 monthly service credit.
       
      The bundle deal is fully customizable with the iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2, as well as 64GB and 128GB models of all four Apple devices, available at an incrementally higher cost.

    • I am definitely interested in checking more into this phone. Am I correct in assuming all phones being released from this point on (before now, really)  are HPUE compliant?
    • You literally said #2 carrier ahead of AT&T. They're #2 not because of network metrics but because of the amount of subscribers they have. Nationally, they're still ranked last in terms of overall network performance because despite their square milage, they still lack in call and text reliability. There is zero doubt that they have one of, if not the fastest network in the country but that is far from the only metric to measure a network, even if it's the most important to you. All you have to do is look at the recent reddit thread that suggested T-Mobile might stop their program that gives people those Cellspots to see that a lot of people were ready to switch because the only thing keeping them on was that device giving them service indoors. At least we know Sprint is going all in on the Magic Boxes and they treat it as a part of their network instead of as just another device.
    • Nothing to do anything about number of customers... How are they not on par with the big two?  TMobile is crushing it for data in all the major markets.  If TMobile can execute their 2017 coverage map goal, they will be on par with AT&T, which is considered to be in the same coverage league as VZW.  So yes, TMobile will be in this club come 2018. https://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/lte-comparison-map
    • This is a reach. AT&T and Verizon still have twice as many customers as T-Mobile and even if they added 2 Million customers per quarter it would take 8 years before they got to VZ and AT&T's current size, assuming VZW or AT&T don't have any growth at all. We can acknowledge T-Mobile's accomplishments without making it seem like they're nearly on par with the big two. In terms of data speed, sure. In terms of price, they're approaching it too. However, you won't be able to find the consistency of the duopoly's network nationwide on T-Mobile right now. That'll take quite a bit more infill sites. That's why given Sprint's "non-announcement" of 8K macro sites for expansion, I'm glad to see it's not a huge expansion because we know that they're going for reliability over square mileage.
