I tried to preorder the iPhone 6S plus in store and the rep told me you cannot preorder the iPhone if you are purchasing the phone at full price. Is this true? Are you restricted to contracts or purchase plans?
09-15-2015 12:01 PM
From what I am being told you should be able to place a pre-order for this phone at the full price cost. What is the location of the store you were at?
09-16-2015 10:23 AM
I reached out to this store's management and they would like to see if they could place a pre-order for you at full price. In order to do this we would need to get some personal information; could you send me a private message with your name and phone number? To send me a private message click on the link in my signature.
We should be able to price match a lower price at a local store or found on one of the online retailers we price match; this would be done at the time you pick up the phone, not when you place the pre-order. Apple's website is not an online retailer we price match, but if there is an Apple store within a 25 mile radius of the store you will be picking the phone up at we should be able to take care of you.

I just spoke to a CSR at the Mira Mesa store to get some information about pre-ordering the iPhone 6s with a Verizon eligible upgrade with 2-year contract and a trade-in. She was very helpful at explaining the $50 deposit (purchase of $50 Best Buy gift card), which can then be used on the purchase of the phone. I asked her if there was a limit to the number of available pre-orders and if the store was close to hitting it. She informed me that she had not been notified of a pre-order limit, but the pre-order does NOT guarantee me a phone on the day of release. I'm confused as to what the point of a pre-order is if the item is not guaranteed. Is this correct and if so, what is the benefit of me pre-ordering if I'm not guaranteed a phone when I go into Best Buy? At the very least, I would expect a date for when I can pick-up the phone.

Will my full price preorder be unlocked when I pick it up? Or will I have to call at&t to have it unlocked. Also, when it comes to the 50 dollar overchage, im guessing call and have them match the apple.com site?

It is correct that placing a pre-order for any product with Best Buy does not guarantee a customer will receive the item on the date of release, but in most cases they will. The reason for this is that unforeseen circumstances can cause delays in us receiving the items from the manufacturer, or us receiving less inventory that we initially expected to receive from the manufacturer.

I don't believe we are selling any of these phones unlocked at this time, and if you ordered one that is locked to AT&T you would have to activate service with AT&T in order to use the phone; the same would be true for a phone ordered that is locked to any carrier.
