The store will call you on their free time to tell you the phone has arrived and scanned in. Sometimes some stores have forgotten due to either some reps not doing it or really busy.
They give you 3 days to pick up the device. If you need to make alternate arrangements, you need to speak to the store manager for that. Unfortunately most stores will say they can't and sell it to the first walk in that requests one.
Speak to the store manager and see what they can do for you. Also if they agree, tell them to write a piece of paper the date u will pick up with ur name and number and stick it on the phone. That way no rep can give it away.
Thanks (again) for the response. Good info to know.
yah, same colour, same capacity, same store to be picked up at. I just checked on the status and now it's "in progress".....does that mean something good???
has anyones status changed from "in progress" to "shipped"? I was originally 29th in line for xs max 256gb Friday morning and hoping to get on launch day... anyone have any insight?
Yup, mine was "shipped" as of last night, with an email and texts to go with it. (iPhone Xs 64 GB silver here)
Thanks for your quick replies my friend. My last question would be, how likely will i get the phone on friday??
