I'd really like to know what the split is. How many are ordering plus vs standard.

Not true.  In fact you can go to their buyback site right now and see they are already matching the T-Mobile prices.  You can even do the transaction there and lock in the pricing if you want.

Yup. I checked Friday and the offer was $250. Yesterday it had gone up to $351.

My gf's 5C has been running like a dog since I put the GM on. Facebook scrolls super slow and freezes, same with safari. Apps will lock for 5-10 seconds then unfreeze randomly. I'm hoping it's just because the apps have not been updated for iOS8 yet. Have you noticed any of this?

Nothing like that on my end. My us bank app no longer allows me to scan my checks and have them deposited. The camera closes and then the app closes but other than that I've had very few issues.

Every now and then my notifications will be goofed up. My phone will vibrate and then a minute later the ringer will go off. I just restart the phone and it's okay. It hasn't been doing it as much since I installed the gm but it's still there. I've never erased the phone and started over to see if it fixes it due to me getting the 6. I'll live with it until I get my new phone.

If you look up the app, in iTunes does it show ios8?

Everything Plus is a plan with subsidies.  Easy pay can only be used on the non-subsidy plans.

Go back and say, I am not switching my plan. I would like to upgrade on my existing plan. If they say they can't, ask to speak to the manager. I am upgrading my phone on friday and I am on the 1500 ED plan. I have been told by sprint reps, chat reps, and 2 people in the store I can do this. Including an employee here on this forum. There is no reason you should not be able to upgrade.

I believe Everything Plus is an employee referral plan.  To upgrade on that plan, you may be stuck doing it online only or over the phone.

Oh crap. I read that too quickly and thought it said Everything Data. I have no idea what everything plus is. Sorries.

It just says compatible with 4.3 and later IIRC from 10 seconds ago. Nothing about iOS 8 even in the changelogs. I didn't think it would be updated already.

Typically they'll add it to the what's new section. Apple has started to approve ios8 apps already.

 

Either way I know its very frustrating

Eh. More frustrating that my bank held back more money than what I would have got if I used the app but that's their problem.

I know I'm using software that isn't all the way released yet so I expect a few issues. I'm not too worried about it.

Yep. I went there twice and got different answers both times. When I go in on Friday morning, I am just going to tell them what I want, what I was told. Period end lol. I want my phone bought back at 351 like I was told it would be, I want to pay 150 for my early upgrade fee, and I want to apply the amount of the buy back to the price of the phone. It's very simple. I hope it doesn't take longer than 20 minutes

I got a preorder in this afternoon and just went ahead and subsidized with a 2 year agreement.  So many carriers offer to buy out other contracts these days that i don't even worry about it

Product ID Description Qty. Order Date Tracking #
885909971671 IPHONE 6P GRAY 64GB KIT 1 2014-09-12
Status: Your pre-order for the 64GB iPhone 6 Plus is at our warehouse. Orders placed prior to 11:00 am CT on 9/12 will ship in up to 3 weeks from order date. Orders placed after that will ship in 4 to 6 weeks from order date. Keep an eye out for a shipping email with your tracking information. Thank you for your patience.

Since it shows my order as "at our warehouse", does this mean I might actually have a chance of mine being delivered on Friday? I finally was able to get my order in about 4:45 AM on Friday.

 

 

The text has changed slightly if you were looking for an iPhone 6.  Looks like all iPhone 6 preorders are good to go.

 

"Your pre-order for the iPhone 6 is at our warehouse. For orders placed through 12:00 pm CT on 9/16, we will do our best to get it to you by 9/19. For any orders placed after 12:00 pm CT, we will do our best to get it to you in 2 to 5 business days. Keep an eye out for a shipping email with your tracking information.

I called because I haven't gotten any sort of email and they're telling me my order might not have gone through even though I have an order number. So now I have to go back to the store to verify it went through since care can't see an order that was done by a store for whatever reason. Starting to get a little irritated with this whole pre order thing.

 

Edit: Go figure right after I write this my phone goes off saying sprint took out money for my phone payment. I hope this is good news.

That's awesome. Can you lock in on a price and then just take your phone in on Friday and give it to the Sprint reps? or should I just wait until Friday and do it all at the store. I'm hoping not to have to mail it in.

They should honor the pricing in store. If you find a better quote from a competitor, bring it in. They will match it.

 

I have to admit. If marcelo had not popped in and made these abrupt changes, I probably wouldn't be getting the iPhone 6 on Friday.

Finally was able to order the 6 Plus. Sprint it taking back my Galaxy S5 that I bought on Aug 25. I have to ship the Galaxy back and use my old Evo 3D or Blackberry Curve...hope this iPhone 6 Plus gets shipped soon!

 

But I can't complain since Sprint is allowing me to return after the 14 days. The camera on the Galaxy S5 sucks indoors and for kids (compared to the iPhone 5s), so I'm excited about the optical image stabilizer.

 

Those telesales folks are pushy...she added the Tab 3 and a case "to help you out" without me saying yes...lol

I don't want it, thank you. You want this tablet. No, no I don't, thank you though. But, you do want this tablet. No, I really really don't want or care about this tablet... But it's free.. Here I'll add it to your account and if you don't like it you can return it in 14 days. How's that. No, I would prefer not to have the tablet... Just the phone please.

 

 

Disconnected.

Does the iPhone lease work with framily, or do you need to be on the new plans?

If it helps, I've ordered 3 devices from Sprint and have never received a tracking email. When I ordered 5s's for me and my fiance last September, I had to actually call to get the order number to track on their website. After checking randomly every day, a UPS tracking number just showed up one day, and the package was already out for delivery. Their ordering process seems jacked up to me.

If I may inquire, how? I'd love to send my wife's s5 back - about 40 days in.

      iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's newest flagship phones, and the successors to Apple's 2017 iPhone X. They have the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and faster FaceID, and come in a beautiful Gold Stainless Steel finish in addition to the Silver & Space Gray options. They are available in the same 5.8" Super Retina display as with the X, and the bigger 6.5" Super Retina. They are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations.
      Apple added Dual SIM technology to the 2018 iPhone's, with one physical SIM, and one eSIM. (eSIM feature not currently supported by Sprint, but is said to be coming later). These phones also feature IP68 water-resistance (iPhone X was IP67) which gives you protection in water for up to 30 minutes in up to 2m of water.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 12:01 AM MST
       
      Many of us enjoy the freedom that rooting or jailbreaking our phones gives. Adding custom ROMs, removing “bloatware” or Carrier IQ, and adding additional controls are just the start. We knowingly take the risk that that we may turn our phone into a brick, and our warranty will likely not cover repair or replacement. But will we knowingly commit a criminal act to unlock our phones?
      Apple has claimed that jailbreaking the iPhone was in conflict with copyright laws. Given the amount of time they spent locking down iOS, it’s no surprise they oppose it. In July 2010, the U.S. Copyright Office eventually decided that jailbreaking and rooting was not a violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), as long as it was not done with the intent of circumventing copyright. However, this decision was not permanent. If it is allowed to expire next month, jailbreaking and rooting could be considered breach of the DMCA.
      Development websites like XDA started out with the public perception that they were underground gatherings of hackers and pirates. Since the U.S. Copyright Office published the finding that jailbreaking and rooting was not illegal, those development websites have become widely popular and have largely changed the public's perception. Even Steve Kondik, aka “Cyanogen”, creator of the widely popular Android ROM CyanogenMod was hired by Samsung.
      Due to the liberties that millions of us enjoy about to be removed due to the sunseting DCMA, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has begun a campaign to keep our phones free. They are undertaking a campaign to convince the U.S. Copyright Office that we should have the right to unlock not only our smartphones, but our tablets and video game consoles. They have a petition that they will send to the U.S. Copyright Office, and they are asking for Concrete examples of legal uses of jailbreaking that “will help show the Copyright Office why they should renew and expand the exemptions for jailbreaking.”

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Friday, February 3, 2012 - 2:00 PM MST
       
      The iPhone is something many people see as a status symbol. Many who have never owned one, long for their upgrade date so they can go out and buy the "exclusive" iPhone that they have been denied access to for years. Even some who had the iPhone, and then switched carriers, long to repurchase another. Yes, the iPhone is a well made smartphone with access to a loaded app store, and has many desirable features. But is it really better than Windows Phone, Blackberry or Android models?
      When Apple entered into a contract with AT&T, they remanufactured the RAZR craze and how the artificial scarcity of the device created such huge demand. The RAZR was a good device, and you may argue it was well ahead of other phones at the time of its release, but the other manufacturers caught up quickly. Apple used a similar strategy and it has paid off immensely. The iPhone is now available on the top 3 carriers in the U.S., but is still seen as a status symbol in many circles. As if only a few people have access to it. One could make a strong argument that the Samsung Galaxy SII is a superior smartphone, but still many customers line up to get the iPhone instead, because their inner hoarder says they NEED it, and the products perceived coolness and limited availability only add to the whole experience.
      The concept of artificial scarcity is simple. You take a product that is plentifully available to manufacture in mass, but limit distribution to a limited time, limited area, or in the case of the iPhone, limited retail outlets.
      The strategy has worked perfect for Disney. Why let your movies make the gradual descent to the $3.99 Wal-Mart bargain bin? Just keep "taking them out of the vault" and offering them at full price for a few months every couple years and people pull their credit cards out to pay $17.99 for an 85 year old movie and thank Disney for "allowing" them the opportunity to purchase Snow White. Oh, and you get to be a part of a limited privileged club.
      Another notable example is McDonald's McRib. If it was on the menu full time, many people either wouldn't bother going to McDonalds or would order something else, but artificial scarcity commands us to rush in to McDonalds and get several McRibs at a time because we won't have another chance at it for another year. What do we end up with, besides a belly ache and a reason why we don't normally eat at McDonalds?
      We should be immune to this form of advertising by now, as we are constantly inundated with limited time availability and special edition products all around us. However it is still alive and well here on Planet Earth, because it still works. Big time.
      Can Apple keep the air of exclusivity over its iPhone as it continues to broaden its distribution? Or will smartphone buyers move on to other devices? Only time will tell. But many doubt that Apple will play its hand as well in an era post Steve Jobs.
