T-Mobile Retail Stores Start Prepping For iPhone Launch As Uniforms, Demo Units Begin Arriving

Screen Shot 2013-04-08 at 11.26.44 AM

With the iPhone launch on T-Mobile just four days away, T-Mobile’s retail locations are getting ready with brand-new “uniforms” and demo inventory. T-Mobile isn’t a stranger to rolling out new T-Shirts as part of major launches, and the Magenta color certainly screams T-Mobile and iPhone at one.

As for the demo devices, we don’t expect T-Mobile to receive customer inventory until the night before the launch, but demo devices are already en-route.

As for how T-Mobile will handle Friday morning, we’re being told it will be similar to any other high-traffic event they’ve experienced in the past. Customers will receive tickets for available inventory on a first-come-first-serve basis. There’s no word on how many iPhone units stores will receive, but the tickets will certainly match up to available inventory likely requiring the customer to stick around and purchase without leaving to come back. 

The countdown is on for the iPhone 5 and so soon as that clock strikes zero, right back into the Android mix with the HTC One.

    Not getting one but excited for those that have wanted this for a long time! :)

    • Absolutely ditto, it’s a new Era for T-Mobile. – )

      • More excited to see T-mobile’s LTE footprint come Friday. seeing more and more LTE action everyday here in Northern VA :)

        • have they said they intend to further its LTE imprint this Friday?? I mean I hope so, but hadn’t heard anything.

        • I’ve heard rumors and at the very least they need to beef up their existing launch markets or you’ll see some unhappy iPhone customers.

        • 21stNow

          I was at Tyson’s this weekend, thanks to the free HOT lane trial. I forgot to do a speed test! I’m so mad at myself, as I rarely go to VA.

    • Giuseppe Rossi

      The Sexiest tmonews mod should have the sexiest device on T-Mobile… smh

      • thepanttherlady

        LOL! But David already HAS this phone. ;)

    • E Tutto Bene

      I have waited 4 long years….

    • Oliver Jackson

      Me too.Friends and co workers alike wanted a iPhone and got it but on Sprint and they hate it

  • Ruvim

    this will deff get tmobile back in the game.. that and the cheaper and uncarrier pricing

  • jeebus

    Getting to my T-Mo store 2 hours early on Friday. When I talked to the manager about it, he said they’re expecting to get about 30 of each color and expect to be sold out within 2 hours.

    • John

      only expecting 30 of each color ? Even for one store it’s kinda of a low amount to order given the popularity of this iconic device.

      • John

        Really will depend on the amount of people in the surrounding area.

        • John

          Yeah, but even if it’s a small town of lets say 5,000 people I doubt 60-100 iphones for that store would be enough at launch.

        • Corey

          everyone is not going to get a device . everyone doesn’t qualify for the 99.99 down payment i could see if it was being sold on contract . then a majority preordered online

      • jeebus

        i am assuming the order is so low because there is another T-Mobile store 3 blocks down inside our big mall.

        • John

          Well that other T-Mobile store in your local mall better stock up well. Because I am sure the other store in your town will run out quick if that is all they ordered.

      • IRIE4IPIEIR

        Iconic? LOL

        • John

          Yeah the IPhone is iconic. AT&t sold 8.6 million IPhones out of 10.2 million smartphone sales for Q4 2012. Thus, only 1.6 million of AT&T’s smartphone sales went for every other platform in Q4 2012.

          Verizon Apple’s iPhone accounted for 6.2 million of the 9.8 million smartphones Verizon sold in the Q4 2012. Thus, only 3.6 million of Verizon’s smartphone sales went for every other platform in Q4 2012.

          Sprint Apple IPhone sold 2.2 million out of the 6.1 million smartphones Sprint sold in Q4 2012. Thus, only 3.9 million of Sprint’s smartphones sales went to other platforms.

  • bleeew

    Most popular phone on T-Mobile in 4 days..

    • John

      I tend to think it may take a few months before it equals the amount of handsets in customer hands as the SGS 3 has right now.

      • thepanttherlady

        4 days = April 12th = launch date ;)

      • E Tutto Bene

        No, T-Mobile is seeing record pre-orders compared to other carriers in the past.

        • facts?

          says who?

        • Zac

          yeah says who?!

  • UMichGoBlue

    glad i ordered my by phone after 5 attempts on the internet and then that not being able to be processed and changing my rate plan even though i tried to keep the same rate..which made me call the loyalty department 5 times to change everything back. i should be getting it by the 22nd of this month. thank you tmobile for the time wasted trying to get a fantastic device.

  • livewire81

    Looking forward to this… Going to be at my store early! :)

  • LC

    My store is set to receive about a hundred…more black units than white.

  • eddydrizzle

    I didn’t want to have to get to the store too early, but it looks like I have no choice now. Oh well, first time experience :P

  • TMoFan

    Very exciting for those who waited (patiently) and for the company as a whole.

  • eddydrizzle

    Now if only a tmobile rep would comment with how much their store is getting

    • BkEnigma

      that’s gonna vary store to store.

      • eddydrizzle

        yeah, I know. I called my local store and they said they could not disclose to me how many they would be receiving.

  • kev2684

    so much t-mobile news the past few weeks. everything is magenta and nothing hurts

  • JimInChicago

    T-Mo- customer and evangelist for 11 years, but now with an asterisk. I still have two phones still with T-mo, but I switched my main line from T-mo to VZW last September. Sadly, I couldn’t wait with my 4.5 year old unlocked iPhone 2 that I had been using on T-mo’s net. Now I have to wait another 17 months before I can go back to T-mo. Now if T-Mo were buy out my VZW contract…I can always dream, right?

    • BkEnigma

      Probably would be cheaper to cancel it, pay the fee, and just pay the AAL pricing with T-Mobile if you already have 2 lines no?

    • JBrowne1012

      YDI

  • Josh

    Updated my Iphone 5 its here !!! at least 4g

    • Ashley

      LTE? Cuz hspa+ 1700 is only the new 2013 iPhone 5 (yet to be launched)according to support docs.

      • Josh

        Shows 4G, lets wait until friday :S hopefully we get LTE !!

  • bisayan

    I took a day off just for this on fiday!!! lol come one friday! can it come any sooner?????

    • bisayan

      Does anybody think thier gonna release more lte markets come filriday? I think they will..

      • g2a5b0e

        Well, if they plan on reaching those goals of 100 mil by half-year & 200 mil by year end, they’ll have to start announcing at least a few new markets every week.

  • Jim

    Wonder is there will be lines at T-Mobile stores this Friday? Whatcha think?

    • eddydrizzle

      I’m thinking there might be. My local store(s) told me last week that it’s better to show up earlier. I will be calling in throughout the week to see if they know how they’re going to handle Friday.

  • Sok

    The update is here!!!
    I went to about and got asked to update
    Says 4G and enable LTE option

  • weezy34

    Now more than ever TmobileUSA needs to have their backend (backhaul) checked, before it gets whooped.

  • RobotChupacabra

    Any updates on when they’re shipping them? I got confusing info. My order says delivery date is April 15, but they say they’re shipping them April 12. I got standard shipping, which is 5-7 business days. That means they’re shipping them today then, right? Carriers and their shipping/delivery dates, always a mess.

    • Dakota

      Glad you’re excited but is your life gonna change if you get a phone a few days later? Don’t understand people on these blogs that get so involved in a phone. Definitely not the average consumer

      • Zac

        LOL @ ^

      • eddydrizzle

        Yeah, we aren’t average consumers. We’re more like informed ones. The normal consumer will not worry about updates or getting phones right when they come out or later. We do though. It’s a blessing because some of us know so much about phones, but a curse at the same time.

      • RobotChupacabra

        I’m confused. What did I say that was so out of the ordinary? Some of us don’t have the luxury of being home all day, every day to receive packages.

  • Addam

    I know I’m dreaming …but has anyone heard info as to when the wifi calling app might arrive. I really want the iphone on friday but am very dependent on wifi calling. I’m very torn but at this poing I’m leaning towards just biting the bullet and trusting that it will eventually come out. (Yes, I’ve been a Tmo customer and loyal Tmonews reader for years and I know how stupid that last line sounds.)

  • KNOWSmuch

    Our store is going to get around 100 for the weekend. No idea when the auto replenishment will come in. Another store in our market is going to get a little over 400. It all depends on how busy the store usually is.

    • Nearmsp

      I wish the stores in our city would have got as much. I think the iPhone 5 will set a record for T-mobile.

  • TheAdrianMc

    I got my 32gb pre-ordered and slated to arrive on the 16th!! I can’t wait!

    • kimberly

      I pre-ordered my 32GB white on Friday as well :) Slated for the 15th but I talked to a T-Mobile rep and they said they believed it should arrive Friday and that it’s just a shipping estimate based on if it shipped out Friday…Here’s to hoping!!

  • 21stNow

    What color are the shirts for the guys? Not only do I think that the guys wouldn’t be enthusiastic over magenta shirts, but it would be blinding to walk in and see everyone in Magenta.

    • maybe the attitude is if John Legere can comfortably wear Magenta everyone else can.

    • bostonlead

      I happen to look great in magenta! Bring on the pink

    • LC

      I know the guys in my store are always the first to rock the magenta.

  • Josue

    watch as people are gonna be camping outside T-Mobile stores

    • Dakota

      Its a phone people

      • thepanttherlady

        Yes, it’s just a phone but good grief let them be excited if they want to be.

        • superg05

          i didn’t even do anything wrong ,rude , disrespectful why was my comment removed?

        • thepanttherlady

          Looks like your comment was never posted. Any comment with a link has to be approved by David to reduce spam.

        • superg05

          okay thanks but i don’t even see the review thing after i came back to the page all trace of it was gone does that mean i got trolled by David cause i posted a youtube link about the features of the galaxy s3 to try them and i asked him to compare when he gets his iphone5 cause David is a big apple fan i think he deleted my comment but i could be reading into it to much as i doubt david is an as$#ole so i doubt he would do that but if he didi i would make another t-mobile site out of spite getting started just incase

        • thepanttherlady

          When I looked it was still pending approval. He’s on diaper duty and it’s 1:16 a.m. where he is. :)

        • superg05

          want to see the site i made in the one hour since we spoke :) i wont really try to compete with this site i was just bored got me motivated though

        • My apologies if some comments don’t go through right away, as Lisa said, any that contain a URL requires mod approval. While I can’t possibly understand the need to build a competing site because your comment wasn’t approved right away, you have to remember that sometimes comments slip through the cracks and I have go back and approve them. There’s hundreds of comments here every day, approving all of them while weeding out the spam is more than a two-minute deal.

      • Zac

        Yup and this is a phone blog, where people who love phones might congregate. Excuse their fervor.

        • Bratty

          Thank you. Best Reply Today!!! Amazing how people come to a phne blog and diss excitement around a phone.

    • Oliver Jackson

      Yep!!! In my neighborhood it’s a ATT store down the building from TMobile

  • We’re set to get around 150 between two stores inside the same mall. 75 of each color. They’re expected to be sold out within a few hours.

    • Dakota

      Sounds like trying to create media and customer frenzy of ‘T-Mobile sells out of IPhone within hours of launch’

    • Nearmsp

      2 of the corporate stores told me they are not getting the full amount, so I am not even going to try to get one this Friday. I will wait a week until the position improves. The demand is much stronger than even T-mobile could have estimated. The 5 years of pent up demand and the fact that it has AWS and PCS, this will be the best phone for T-mobile. I wish Wi-Fi calling comes soon.

  • jon

    Are they going to open store earlier than normal which is normally at 10:00 am local time?

    • BkEnigma

      I believe all stores are 9am

      • taron19119

        I want to see where you hear that from because T Mobile stores never open at 9 a.m. when opening early it is always 8 a.m. when they have a early opening

        • BkEnigma

          My girlfriend works for T-Mobile.

        • taron19119

          I still believe it why what’s the mobile open up one hour early I don’t see the point in that

        • They’re all opening at 9. My store too.

        • LC

          I’ll be there at 8:30 to be open at 9:00 as well!

    • eddydrizzle

      Yes, BkEnigma is right. They will open at 9am. Just one hour earlier.

  • Dakota

    You have to laugh at how T-Mobile for years dissed the iPhone and now it’s the Messiah that will save the company

    • Oliver Jackson

      Actually,they never dissed the iPhone

    • kev2684

      actually the target was the service the iPhone is getting from AT&T and VZW.

    • BkEnigma

      They made fun of AT&T. I couldn’t find the commercial, but I do remember one of the Mytouch 4G commercials (the ones that were similar to the “I’m a Mac vs. I’m a PC”) They said something like, what’s the point of having a great phone, but being on a shitty network.

    • Yeah they never directly attacked the iPhone, just the carriers who had it. T-Mobile always wanted the iPhone.

    • Kingcharming

      Anyone wanna repeat that they never attacked the iPhone?

  • Zumeklokk

    If I didn’t pre order the iPhone can I still get it this Friday ?

  • Anonymouse

    where can i get that shirt? i care more for the shirt than the phone.

  • John

    I just spoke to my T-Mobile rep at the 1-800 number. The Rep said the employees at the call center got an email early this morning Monday 4/8 stating they have received 200,000 PRE-ORDERS for the IPHONE 5 so far. He also stated people are still ordering, but some people are having problems placing their order due to the high traffic on the site.

  • Zumeklokk

    I just got the sg3 two days ago, but I didnt like , who knows how much it would be to exchange it for an iphone5?

    • taron19119

      you have to send it back and it’s going to cost you $15 restocking fee and then you have to buy the iPhone 5

      • Zumeklokk

        So take it back to the store? Cause thats where I got it

        • taron19119

          yeah just as long as you have all the original paintings and everything

        • Zumeklokk

          wait so when I take it back and pay the restocking fee I have to pay an additional 100$ for the iphone?

        • taron19119

          if you’re on inclement installation program with the galaxy s3 then the best thing to do is have them cancel it all together and when you get the money put it towards the iPhone

        • Zumeklokk

          Okey sounds good … And if I didnt pre order the iphone can I still get it on friday at the store? Or is that just for people who pre ordered it ?

        • taron19119

          yeah you can get in stores but only 16 gig the 32 Gigabyte and 64 gigabyte iPhone 5 are only being sold online

        • Zumeklokk

          Okey good I only wanted the 16g anyways. And I just checked , my restocking fee is 50$ but I think its worth it. and thanx for your help

      • thepanttherlady

        $15?!!? Where do you live? Here in Socal our restocking fee is $50. :/

        • taron19119

          Philadelphia the last time I took a phone I had to pay a $15 restocking fee

    • superg05

      im sorry to hear you dont like the galaxy s3 you should take it back if you dont like it but first play with it before you take it back wallpapers home replacements video playback and when you get your iphone compare the features and custombaibility and let us know what you think of your new iphone best wishes

  • taron19119

    can’t wait to see my local news outside of the T Mobile store to talk to people who have lined up for the iPhone 5

  • Sidekicker

    Uhh where can I get one of those shirts?!? The logo should be WAY bigger though!

    • cheezis christ

      You can have mine I would rather get beaten than wear that on launch date. Not everyone drinks the koolaid

      • Sidekicker

        are you being forced to wear it though? Just think of the money you’ll make on launch day!! :) that should make up for it!

      • Chris

        My sentiments exactly!!! lol

  • J0SH

    I want one of those shirts!

  • aps150

    are the stores going to carry 16gb, 32gb, and 64gb or just the 16gb?

    • Camille

      just 16gb in store

  • Turb0wned

    Can’t wait till this iPhone launch is over and done with so they can finally give me a release date on the HTC One.

    • Kingcharming

      this

  • John

    So everyone is freaking out about inventory – but can’t you just go to your local Apple store and get the exact same phone? I’m sure they’ll have tons

    • eddydrizzle

      I’m not sure about that. When I asked at Apple they told me they’d only have pre-orders in store.

      • John

        Odd – I just asked them on Apple Chat and they said they’ll have them in store. Can anyone confirm?

        • eddydrizzle

          I guess it could all depend. That’s what I was told in the store, but then again the “genuises” in there didn’t know anything about the iPhone.

  • Guest

    i didn’t even do anything wrong ,rude , disrespectful why was my comment removed? lady?

  • Zumeklokk

    So can you get an iphone at the store on friday even tho you didnt pre ordered it ?

    • taron19119

      Yeah pre orders well get mailed out

      • Zumeklokk

        You sure?

        • taron19119

          Yeah 100 percent

        • Zumeklokk

          Okey good … Do you kno if I could exchange my sg3 for the iphone? I just got it and didnt like it n they said theyll exchange it for 50$ withing 14days but idk if that goes towards the new iphone to?

        • taron19119

          You have to return it then take the money and buy iphone

        • Zumeklokk

          So basicly refund it?

        • taron19119

          Yeah

        • Zumeklokk

          I never knew you could do that?

        • taron19119

          Yeah do it on Thursday cause on Friday T-Mobile well have every computers/register setup for iPhone 5

        • eddydrizzle

          I called in to multiple T-Mobile stores and they told me that you can still do it on Friday as long as you bring the box and receipt and everything.

        • eddydrizzle

          You can do that, but they won’t give you a lot of money. They gave me 188 for mine last week. You’re still left with however many payments you have left.

        • LC

          That’s more if you are doing a trade in. It sounds like thisperson iswithin the buyer’s remorse period.

        • eddydrizzle

          It does sound like that. What you explained is exactly what I’ll be doing with my Blackberry Z10.

        • LC

          If you don’t mind me asking, what were your thoughts on the Z10? I always like getting customer feedback on new devices.

        • thepanttherlady

          I’ll give you mine. :)

          I’m not completely happy with it. :(

          I just purchased mine this past Friday. I have experienced multiple reboots daily. This does appear to be a problem with a small minority of handsets, not all. I will be taking it back this afternoon to get a new one.

          The battery life is horrible to the point that I am afraid to do much of anything on it because the battery drains so quickly.

          I have yet to find a way to make my emails show up as a “thread”. On my Note 2 comments posted to TMonews would show in 1 email per topic. Right now, I get individual emails. :/ This could be a learning curve for me and I just haven’t found the setting to make this happen yet.

          Don’t like that my “active” windows shut themselves down if I’m not doing something on my phone often. I have an LED app that will only work if I check the phone every so often. If I go past the magic time frame, the app shuts down rendering it useless.

          Camera doesn’t seem to auto-focus well. I have two vices in life: cell phones and my nails. I do my nails a couple times a week and take pictures of the designs. No es bueno so far with the Z10. :(

          Those are the things that come to mind at this moment. I will get my replacement tonight and stick with my BB Z10 until my 30 days are up. If I don’t see signs of improvement by then I will return it for something else (please let it be the Sony Xperia Z!!).

          Oh! To add a positive note to this…I really like the typing on this device! Such a different experience from Android.

        • LC

          Hmm interesting…I appreciate the feedback!!

        • eddydrizzle

          Mine hasn’t been too good. Lack of apps and random reboots make it unbearable.

        • LC

          If you’re still within your return/exchange period, you can return your S3 minus the $50 for the restock fee and purchase the iPhone in the same transaction. Just make sure you have your receipt, the box and all of the items that came withthe phone.

        • Zumeklokk

          So can I go do that now? Or wait till friday when the iphone comes out?

        • LC

          If Friday is still covered by the 14 day return/exchange period, I would just do it all at once. That way it saves yourself a trip. If it isn’t, I would obviously return the GS3 first and then go pick up an iPhone on Friday.

  • Mickey

    Can I get AppleCare on the iPhone at the TMO store?

    • LC

      No, Apple Care isn’t available in T-Mobile stores.

      • Mickey

        So I could order AppleCare through Apple after I get it? I think you have like 30 days to add it.

        • LC

          You would want to check with the Apple store. I just know that all of our training documents told us we would just be continuing to over the PHP services on our iPhones.

        • Camille

          Are you sure? When I started through the pre-order process on T-Mobile online, the system told me that it was removing the phone insurance from my plan because it wasn’t compatible with the iPhone and that there wasn’t any insurance available for it.

          I was just going to get coverage through squaretrade once I purchased the phone.

        • LC

          That’s because the iPhone 5 qualifies as the new insurance tier, which has an increased monthly cost to it. You would remove the $7.99 feature and add the $11.99 feature for the 5. The 4/4S would fall under the $7.99 tier.

        • Camille

          Ah, ok. Thanks! Which would be better in your opinion? Squaretrade or T-Mobile’s insurance?

        • LC

          For me, I would do the T-Mobile option because the Squaretrade only covers damage, but you’re SOL if it’s lost or stolen. I always do the full coverage (insurance and lifetime warranty) just because I get overnight service for everything.

        • Camille

          Thanks!

  • Kelijah

    What time will they open?

    • eddydrizzle

      9am.

  • sidekicker89

    So can the WiFi Calling ability be pushed to the iPhone 5 through a software update? Or is it more of a hardware thing that they might add in the upcoming iPhone 5S?

    • It would be a software update. My guess is the reason that it’s not there right now is because T-Mobile has to work out some type of deal with Apple to allow them to put it on the phone.

  • JustSaying

    Is it true on TMo’s $70 unlimited data plan that they can throttle you at 5GB? I thought it was true unlimited..

    • Camille

      it is truly unlimited. no throttling

    • iphoney

      There are two kinds of $70 plan.. One with unlimited data strickly for your handset.. The second includes hotspot access where it gets throttled at 4.5 gb

    Are people really going to “camp out” for this? Anyone who wanted it enough to camp out would have switched carriers to get it by now. I expect it will sell decent but honestly I don’t imagine lines until the iPhone 5s comes out.

    • You would be surprised how many people will not switch carriers due to ETFs and prices of rate plans.

  • me

    Its going to be pretty funny when all these people show up to the store expecting a $99 down payment and are told their credit with T-Mobile is not good enough….

  • D_Wall__

    This should speak volumes about our customer base. Showing how many people pre-order and pick one up. I will get mine in store Friday.

  • Vince

    Regardless what the shipping date says I think if people can pick up the iPhone from the retail store ON Friday then my pre-ordered phone should be here ON Friday, not days after.

    • eddydrizzle

      But there’s always the possibility that people who go in store, such as myself, might not get a phone because they are out of stock.

  • Chris

    Thank God I didnt get the job at T-Mobile I had hoped to because i’m huuuuuge Anti Apple and this would have seriously sucked…lol

    • Mickey

      You suck.

      • Chris

        So does your Mother but I don’t go around telling people….

        • eddydrizzle

          Mom jokes? Kinda childish don’t you think?

        • Chris

          No, it was a response to a childish comment thrown at me.. And for you to ask me this question makes you just as childish when in fact it has nothing to do with you… ;)

        • eddydrizzle

          Based off of how you sound, I think you didn’t get the job at T-Mobile because of how you act and your attitude. Have a good day, sir.

    • Your commission check wouldn’t have sucked. This will be huge for T-Mobile employees.

      • Chris

        Maybe, but I’ve already spoken to a couple of T-Mobile employees and they told me exactly what I thought.. They said that they were not looking forward to this launch either because they wouldn’t really be getting shit commission for the sales of the iphone

    I, like a lot of folks here, want to know when the HTC shirts are coming? The wife’s HTC MyTouch4G just went belly up and she is thinking about the fruit phone, but I want her to wait and see the iPhone5 along with the S4 and HTC One side by side. She has been using my old MyTouch 3G, so she may think that 4″ screen is huge.

  • jjjjjrey

    Tmobile just charged my card today for the iphone5. When i placed the order tmobile said they would only charge my card the day of shipping. So here is to hoping they ship tomorrow.

  • 0neTw0

    I would love to have one of those shirts! ……Not!

  • Zumeklokk

    So I wuna exchange my phone and I kno theres a 50$ restocking fee. But can I call t mobile customer service and pre order the iphone5? Or do I have to wait till friday and go to the store and try to get one?

    • You’ll need to go to the store on Friday so that you can use the refund from the phone you have to go towards the iPhone 5.

  • Kingcharming

    Welp, got an e-mail from MyUPS, my order was packed on 4/8, will arrive 4/11. NICE!

  • Chris

    If any of you xxx can tell me why you want the iphone so bad I would really love to hear it…

    • eddydrizzle

      We all have different reasons. I have used almost all the operating systems that have been out in the past 7 years. Blackberry, Blackberry 10, Android, WebOS, WP7, WP8, even Symbian. I have yet to try iOS. Plus I have grown tired of the slow updates on Android phones and how they seem to lag no matter what phone I have used. You could say that I have only experienced that because I only use lower-end android phones, but you’d be lying because I owned a GS3 and it still lagged on certain things. Not to mention the lack of updates.

      Most people hate iPhone users because they just follow the pack, but not all of them are like that. I would understand if you were talking about the people that buy Apple products just because of the brand, but you have to remember that this is a technology blog (specifically phones) so a lot of people are more informed than the average consumer. You can’t just group everyone under a stereotype like that.

      • Chris

        If you must know my “attitude” had nothing what so ever to do with why I didn’t get the job at T-Mobile FYI.. I’m so sorry that my lack of professionalism towards you isn’t to your liking. Opinions very, and to tell you the truth you were the first to address me with your idiotic comment. So with that said I bid YOU a good day sir!

        • eddydrizzle

          Is it really idiotic when you ask us “xxx” why we want the iPhone. It shouldn’t really matter to you, should it?

        • thepanttherlady

          I edited his post and removed the word he used. It was rude and unnecessary.

        • Chris

          what you removed is nothing more but a term used by android “fanboys” sorry if you thought it was rude and unnecessary.. You may want to start removing other things as well like others telling people “they suck” SMH!

        • eddydrizzle

          So you’re a fanboy? That explains your hate for Apple then.

        • Chris

          Yes I will admit that is PART of the reason I hate Apple but I have no problem admitting it..

        • eddydrizzle

          Oh, that explains it. I should have guessed based off of the way he was acting.

        • Enough of this, I like the iPhone because I do and I’m not going to explain why I do to anyone. Why do you like the color blue? Red? Chocolate? Because you do, move on everyone.

        • Chris

          David it was a simple question and anyone who wants to is entitled to answer it.. This BS wasn’t over the iphone ? but because of other things but your right I will move on!!

  • Zumeklokk

    So I just dropped my phone :( but there’s only a lil scratch can I still go exchange it for an iPhone ?/:
