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 tried that. If said my plan was not comparable with that payment option.

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.

      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

      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.
