So I've been lurking in here for awhile, Thanks Meowmix for all you do. I'm a little confused as it's been awhile since I upgraded my phone...
So I reserved my 64GB Space Grey iX ( spot 113 in reservation que), Changed my plan from the old share everything to the new premium plus tab plan (4GB, unlimited nationwide mins = 125/month) , and now waiting for the phone for pickup in store... and I just read that theres no more "hardware upgrade charged to your bill/have a month to pay it off" type thing??
My last phone was the 6S and I thought everything was gonna be the same as before...
So just to clarify for everyone here, whether you pay now OR pickup in store, you'll pay a min $599+tax walking out with your new iPhone?
Glad to be a member of this community tho - great respect for everyone
Yes that is correct. This changed last year during July / August ( 2016). Now when you either start a new activation or upgrade a device in store you will have to pay the device price in store. Yours will be $599+ taxes upfront. The connection fee and any remaining flextab fees will be added to your next invoice still.
I picked up an ipad pro last week in store and I didn't have to pay anything. Just on my first bill there was a charge.
That is because you are financing it. That gets added to your next invoice. We are talking about upgrading your device to a new phone or a new line with a phone. That is a difference between those two.
ah okay I see. I too wasn't aware. So I have to pay the $599 friday?
Yeh ok - that makes sense now. Appreciate the quick replies.
I've looked at the pre order device faq page, and it does say pay now, or pay later in store. I wish they would clarify that in better words in that FAQ or even when submitting your pre-order/hardware upgrade online.
I've seen the pay now (CC) vs pay later, and I remembered the later was the bill to your account...
Should make for an interesting friday with people not checking in the forums / info / FAQ 😉
So I am looking to upgrade to the iPhone X 256GB on a premium tab and the price now shows as $899 while the $999 is crossed out. Is this offer for everyone/ price drop? Will it get better for Black Friday?
