How to order iphones!! ;)

1. Always use private browser and reopen between every 10 new phones.
2. every 10 create a  new Apple account. (you can do +1, +2 etc. like you do for Banana republic welcome offers!)
3. every 10 Phones use a new CC
4. Shipping you can use random name and phone #
5. Billing you can misspell your Name and change the address.  Zip code must be accurate.
6.If you have a citi cc you can make a virtual card #

Many people have reported cancellations on the iPhone 6+ even after following the above. Some say it's due to the shortage of the 6+ therefor apple is very strict.
Try being creative when buying the 6+ 

7. I take no responsibility for cancelled orders these are just a few tips that will lower the chance of cancelled orders.

I ordered from Sprint and also from Apple.  The line I ordered from Sprint never changed the contract date. I'd like to know if it changed others. I think it was a mistake.

Chances are it will change once your phone ships.

That's why I wanted to know if others who ordered through Sprint changed already. The one from Apple did.

I ordered two from Sprint. So far, the contract still says that it was completed in 2013. I believe this will change though. Sprint does things a little backwards.

Notice that the money you paid for the iPhone shows up as a CREDIT on your Sprint bill. (They will eventually adjust this).

Thanks. That's all I wanted to know :)
 Normally I wouldn't think it meant anything but there was a mess up with the order. Thought maybe I got lucky. Guess not.  Thanks for the info.

Anyone download iOS 8 yet?
I like the new features, but it's a big battery drain so far.
I think the auto-brightness feature is by default much brighter.

You downloading directly to device or through computer?
Tried directly to iPhone 5S and it said it needs 5.8GB for the install. Package size is only 1.1GB.
Anyways, computer is faster :)

What was the reason apple wrote on the cancellations?

Lots of mine shipped already in the past 2 days, even though I don't see tracking online on the website. Only when looking at the orders through the mobile app do I see tracking details.
If you have an iPhone/iPad try logging into the Apple Store app and checking the order from there.

Some shipped from China with UPS Worldwide Express Saver, others from Nashville using UPS Next Day Air Saver. Regardless of where it's coming from or when it will actually get picked up by UPS, you should have them all the 9/19 ones by Friday.

I've ordered iPads in the past that shipped that way and it came in 2 days. It sounds scarier then it is :)

Tried that, didn't work.

this however, worked on the first try with UPS and my phone #:

http://www.iclarified.com/43861/use-this-trick-to-see-if-apple-has-shipped-your-iphone-6-preorder

Simply fill out the track by reference form on UPS or Fedex, and use your phone number associated with your order. If that phone number does not work, keep trying any phone number that could be associated with your wireless account or the number you used to upgrade. Sometimes it could be the phone number attached your Apple ID, or your billing address phone number.

Sprint phones shipped.
To those that ordered from Apple does it say should be receiving the phone by the 19th? Even if it doesn't show shipping yet.

Only ordered one from Apple. Shows October 1st.
