My status for the Gold Xs Max 256 Gb just changed to "In Progress" from "Open". I was originally #33 in the queue when I reserved but it went down to 29 earlier today.
Same here! Moved from Open to In Progess this morning, and was at #86 last night for a Gold Xs Max 256Gb
@Meowmix absolutely not since that time, got this iphone 7 plus on oct 2 2016 and nor me or anyone else in the line except new customers, had to pay anything up front.
at least the rep i got was actually helpful and understanding of how much of a garbage silent move that was and assisted me in getting a refund on my bill back to my bank (as my bill has a negative balance, i put extra on it in preparation for having the upgrade ON THE BILL... now i need it back in hand..)
has anyone had a "hardware upgrade loyalty offer" or know what it is? the rep said theres a note on my account about it and i should bring it up in store to "see if i can get it applied to preorders..
