Re: iPhone X Pre-Order Experience

I read that Best Buy only receives one variant of the iPhone X.

 

I belive this explains why our orders do not show the specific model. In this case, it has to be the A1865 model because otherwise it would not work on CDMA carriers. If they sold only the A1901, it wouldn't work on Verizon and Sprint. Does that make sense? I know it is confusing.

Re: iPhone X Pre-Order Experience

Ah yes that makes sense - I wasn't aware that BestBuy was only selling the CDMA/GSM iPhone X. That's great news! And for anyone who brought the phone full price, they should be able to contact their carrier and request an unlock so it can be used internationally. AT&T lets you do it online. If paying monthly, then I guess best to have it activate using Verizon sim.

Re: iPhone X Pre-Order Experience

Yes, exactly. I feel it is worth mentioning that I am not 100% confirmed regarding Best Buy's stock being a single version, but this is the most logical conclusion, especially as it pertains to the US Reseller Flex Policy.

 

I hope everyone receives/picks up their phones come November 3rd. If anyone else has any questions, please do not hesitate to ask! Smiley Happy

Re: iPhone X Pre-Order Experience

I managed to get one after all. It just pushed my ship date back by a week, so long as Best Buy is confident it's correct.

 

So I guess everything's swell.

Re: iPhone X FAQ

For what it’s worth I just talked to a customer service rep and she told me they will price match once I physically have the phone. They can’t do it now on a preorder but once it arrives, she said they’d happily credit the extra $100.

Re: iPhone X FAQ

Regarding the whole $100 increased thing, Best Buy FINALLY came out with an official statement:

 

 

Just leaving it here. Smiley Wink

 

"That's not the case at Best Buy, as our prices reflect the fact that no matter their desired plan or carrier, or whether a customer is on a business or personal plan, they are able to get a phone the way they want at Best Buy. Flexibility has a cost, but it's something our customers have told us they want."

Oh, the joys of trying to decipher the bureaucratic puzzle of prices.

Re: iPhone X FAQ

"Flexibility has a cost" - what the hell is that even supposed to mean? The same "flexibility" is being provided by Apple and every other retailer without a "cost". Quite some underhanded stuff if you ask me.<br><br>And it seems that BB has now decided to stop offering this "flexibility" on their website as of last hour or so. The option to pay full price has disappeared. So much for this flex-greed.

Re: iPhone X preorder limit?

Hey Jbmorales,

 

A customer should be able to purchase and activate two of these phones when activating with a carrier, and only one if purchasing the phone full price unactivated.
