    The website open after 3 min for me. Around 12.04. and I took me 1 min to close it. And I'm still in the 2-3 week zone. I'm with TMobile. Pissed me off that Verizon still offered it for Nov 3th about 10-15 min after or longer for the 256 models in the Apple website. I got the 256 silver tmobile. Maybe I'll get lucky and get it sooner. I doubt it tho.

    No….. You dropped $1200.00 for the. X. dude. That's a Note 8 and tickets to a Nets game. It would take the full 1200 to get Warriors tickets…in the pre-season

    I went through the Verizon app and seemingly submitted and order a few minutes before official launch. However, something didn’t feel right so I went through their website and noticed my account didn’t show any new orders. So I submitted another order which went through. Should get here Nov. 3rd!!!! Was definitely not as hard as I expected.

    I was in Hong Kong, refreshing the Apple Store app non stop! It didn’t show up until 5 minutes after launch time. But I was able to get my 256 GB iPhone Space Grey, arriving November 17th, but hopefully earlier. I don’t feel bad about my purchase at ALL!

    Of course, they sold out in 10 minutes, there were only around 100 in stock.

    I had the same thoughts about the price of the iPhone X and went for the 8 Plus instead.

    So you thought your Kung Fu was good…. AT&T got mine Monkey Style Nov 3. I'm with you…I got hyped up on it but that $1000 cold shower in the morning really rocked me hard! I do think this will be my last phone for at least two cycles, as the only thing that could get me to upgrade is if the phone was transparent front to back….now work in that Apple. Apple you are truly " the masters of the flying guillotine."

    Ordered the 256g silver at 9am UK time on the 27th through Vodafone with no problems and I get it on November 3rd. Brian you’re totally correct, I mean it cost more than some fully fledged Apple computers but my gosh it’s nice

    I had no issues on the Apple Store app I got in like 5 minutes after the pre order time. Since I had the iPhone X on my favorites and it made it fast and easy to purchase. Didn’t have an issue and I’m just glad I was one of the few that’ll be getting it on Nov 3

    The app worked flawlessly in Singapore. Managed to secure mine for Nov 3 delivery. So stoked for my first iPhone 🙂

    Ordered it at 0.02am after refreshing the Apple Store app (France) non-stop. Even though I had entered all the necessary info in advance, I still ran into some issues by having to enter some addresses during the 1st order.. but I still managed to complete the order on time to have a pick-up date on Nov. 3rd.
    That’s not all.. I then tried to get another one of the other color at about 0.04am.. and during the process.. I forgot to change to “Pick-up at store”.. but it’s alright, I’m still being delivered on Nov. 3 ^^ .
    The preorder prices in Thailand ,where the phone isn’t going to be released until next year (maybe 2nd quarter??), is insanely high.. roughly $3,000 for the 256GB.. I’m going to be selling one and it is going to be as if I never had to pay for my iPhone X.

    I was able to use the Apple Store app on my iPad to get the phone. But because I had to change my address in my AT&T account I was delayed 10 minutes or so and ended up in the back of shipments coming out towards the end of November

    I’m a big time techs and huge Apple fan. I have bought every new model since iPhone 3G. The iPhone X is the first one that I said no to. Give me one without a notch and then maybe I’ll come back. Until then I’m sticking with the 8 plus.
