T-Mobile touts iPhone 7 sales records, including most single-day sales

appleiphone7and7plus

Apparently consumers are fans of the iPhone 7 and T-Mobile’s iPhone Trade-Up offer.

T-Mobile says that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have broken pre-order records, with the two devices getting nearly four times as many pre-orders from Friday, Sept. 9, through Monday compared to the next most popular iPhone. T-Mo also notes that on Friday, the iPhone 7 set a single-day sales record for any phone in T-Mobile’s history.

The iPhone 7 also broke pre-registration records at T-Mobile, earning more pre-registrations than the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 before it.

Rounding out today’s news, John Legere gave us a small peek at T-Mobile’s Q3 performance today. The CEO touted on Twitter that overall porting ratios are above those in Q1 and Q2, meaning that more folks are switching to T-Mo from other carriers.

Last week, T-Mobile announced its iPhone Trade-Up deal that lets you trade-in an iPhone 6 or newer and get a free 32GB iPhone 7 or discount on a newer model. While T-Mo isn’t the only carrier with such an offer, it looks like the deal — combined with the overall hype for a new iPhone — has done pretty well for T-Mobile.

The iPhone 7 will launch this Friday, Sept. 16. You can still pre-order both phones from T-Mobile, but according to T-Mo’s shipping estimates, the earliest that your order would ship would be Sept. 19. The wait is even longer for the Jet Black models, with new orders of those versions expected to ship Nov. 1. If you don’t feel like waiting, you can always visit a T-Mobile or Apple store on launch day to see if they’ve got the phone you want in stock.

    I guess people really don’t like headphone jacks ;-)

    • ITALIANNYC

      They included the adaptor so that made it alright for me. Now let’s just see if it sounds on par and it doesn’t sound like putting a cassette tape in an old car and plugging the jack into your phone.

      • Acdc1a

        Really? An adapter makes it OK? Come on man!

        • ITALIANNYC

          Listen its not OK per say, but they didn’t completely stop me from using my own headphones, so lets just say ill ” deal “

      • noh1bvisas

        the adapter weighs 2 pounds and needs an ac outlet :)

    • Koolme666

      They’ve made adapters man, they want people to think you need Bluetooth headphones and you don’t. They made a usb lightning headphones or 3.5mm to usb adapter both on apples website :) not a fan of apple at all. My gf is switching back to the dark side after being with her note 5 for 1 year

      • noh1bvisas

        i could never date anyone with an iphone.

        • Bradley Karas

          NERD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • KingCobra

    Well T-Mobile never offered a free iPhone before with trade in like they’re doing with the 7. That makes it pretty much a no brainer to upgrade.

    • AussieB

      Every carrier is doing it. 2 year contracts are back.

  • Marcus

    With all the people trying to place orders repeatedly using different ways (see the preorder comments), this makes me think that some may have preordered 3 or 4 phones due to them being impatient because their confirmation was not immediately delivered. Congratulations all 4 of your orders went through!

  • noh1bvisas

    i’m in line at the store right now (sarc).

  • Rick Betteridge

    2 of the 4 phones I ordered have shipped… 9/13/2016, 10:15am

    • kev2684

      Which models are those and what time did you pre-order?

      • Rick Betteridge

        1 Black, 2 Rose Gold, 1 Gold. The 2 Rose Gold have shipped. Ordered at 3am (ish) on Friday, Sept 9th.

        • kev2684

          Regular or Plus and storage size? As expected the non-blacks shipped first. I assume top 10 colors/storage for the Plus looks like this:
          1. 128gb Jet Black
          2. 256gb Jet Black
          3. 32gb Black
          4. 128gb Black
          5. 256gb Black
          6. 32gb Rose Gold
          7. 32gb Gold
          8. 128gb Rose Gold
          9. 32gb Silver
          10. 128gb Gold

        • JBrowne1012

          Non-blacks shipped first that’s racist!! iPhone racism!

        • MattPortland

          Black Phones Matter.

        • Rick Betteridge

          Rose Gold 128 first
          Gold 128 next (around 1pm)
          waiting on the 128 black.

        • Zacamandapio

          You’ve yourself a special edition there Rick.

        • Rick Betteridge

          Anyone have a Black shipping yet? I have 3 out of 4 shipping, the last is the Black one…

        • kev2684

          I ordered 128GB Black 7+ (not Jet) and is still “being processed.” I ordered and signed 04:18 EST

        • Rick Betteridge

          Okay. So it’s not just me. Thank you

      • ITALIANNYC

        Mine shipped. 128gb iphone 7, ordered it Saturday night

        • KRM

          Color?

        • ITALIANNYC

          Matte black

  • AussieB

    Aren’t these free iPhone deals that all 4 major carriers are doing basically a new version of the 2 year contract? Is it true Apple (at least as of now) isn’t selling unlocked iPhones not tied to the big 4?

    • MattPortland

      Basically, yes.

    • Acdc1a

      Yes, but the way contracts always should have been. Once you’ve paid off the subsidy, you’re free.

    • noh1bvisas

      they are calling it a “payment plan” to avoid the word contract. same thing, though.

    • George Salcedo

      Yes go to Costco and get a MasterCard with trade in a lot better deal.

    • MattPortland

      Are you Australian?

  • Michael Tran

    The promotion is definitely boosting numbers. Folks are willing to upgrade even if it’s a contract. Contracts are back in a different way but at least it’s more of a consumer choice now.

  • Fabian

    Those of us who are not benefiting from the subsidizing plans should get monthly credits. $25, which in two year becomes $600, which will never happen.

    The Un-Carrier… LOL

    • noh1bvisas

      are you saying tmo has no intention of issuing the credits?

      • Fabian Cortez

        are you saying tmo has no intention of issuing the credits?

        If we don’t reply, the troll goes away.

        And of course T-Mobile will be issuing credits. There is zero evidence that they haven’t before. Providing monthly credits is clearly part of the condition of the free phone deal.

        Nothing but smoke and mirrors from the inadequate doppelgänger.

        • Fabian

          Go troll someone else or get help.

        • Fabian Cortez

          Go troll someone else or get help.

          Says the psycho troll as he responds to me using my name when he wasn’t even replied to.

          Try to be a little more original.

      • Fabian

        I was talking about the two year contracts and the phone subsidizing plans, meaning: expensive plans disigned to subsidize phones.

        • noh1bvisas

          with tmo, all the plans cost the same. not sure about about other carriers.

        • Fabian Cortez

          Precisely.

          Service plans are 100% separate from devices.

          They’ve only been that way since 2013…

        • Fabian

          Not what I’m talking about. Let’s leave there anyway.

        • noh1bvisas

          you seemed to have no point at all. troll much?

        • Fabian Cortez

          You are on the money once again. All while using my name in an effort to create confusion and start something out of nothing.

          Once he abandons this guest name, he will move on to another.

        • noh1bvisas

          a clever stalker would’ve used “Fabian C0rtez”

  • Koolme666

    It was pretty crowded when I went into t-mobile last Friday to pre order the phone, still got it on back order from September 16th to October 1st free overnight shipping, so I got the iPhone 7 plus 32gb for my gf. We only owe $120 either in 24 payments of 11 dollars a month, or 120 up front. How does their “2 year contract” work if I pay the phone off ?

    • mcgiggles

      Once the phone itself is paid off, you can do whatever you want. You don’t need to stay with T-mobile once it’s paid.

      • Koolme666

        Thanks for the reply, I’ve been with t-mobile for 11 years so I won’t be switching I was just curious if that 24 month “contract” would still be active even if the phone is paid off. But still I have to make sure I don’t forget because I’ve never traded in a phone before, so the sales rep told me I need to transfer over the sum of credit they give me towards the iPhone or else it’ll be credited towards my bill and I’d end up paying 32 dollars a month for 24 months

    • tony

      just fyi t mobile iphone 7 version does not support verizon and and sprint antannea bands. if you want all the anntane only verizon iphone 7 supports all bands from all carriers.

      • Koolme666

        Well I don’t really care about that I’ve been with tmobile for 11 years. If you mean selling it to someone then that’s cool I can sell it to someone for tmobile and they can do as they please

        • noh1bvisas

          i agree. i’ve had tmobile for several years. i’m rarely pleased with anything, but i’m pleased with tmo.

  • tony

    holy crap t mobile q3 for postpaid is more then q1 and q2 combined? damn.

    • Bradley Karas

      No not combined just more than each of the two previous LOL

  • noh1bvisas

    obviously she doesn’t want someone with a sense of humor, bro, since you don’t have one.

    • Koolme666

      I’ve been with my girlfriend for 5 years, obviously I’m doing something right BRO, don’t assume what you don’t know. I shouldn’t have to read your mind to assume your being sarcastic BRO

      • noh1bvisas

        how nice for you.

      • steadymobb

        Lol triggered

  • Philip

    As far as hardware wise, iphone 7 cannot even compare to Note 7. Lets compare apple to apple here.

    • Rick Betteridge

      Yes… the Apple device does not explode… :D

      • noh1bvisas

        that remains to be seen. the note 7 didn’t explode before it was released, either.

        and for the record, iphones have exploded in the past.

        • Rick Betteridge

          Still… it was funny :D

        • noh1bvisas

          not really. it was funny the first couple days.

        • slybacon

          It probably exploded in the factory, but they kept shipping them out anyway. You can’t tell me Samsung never tried charging the Note 7, can you? That seems like Phone 101.

        • noh1bvisas

          possible but unlikely.

    • George Salcedo

      Seriously man I don’t like Apple but Samsung has epically failed with the note 7 recall and touch wiz to this day is still the worst ui.

    • ITALIANNYC

      I came from android. Had the s3 s4 s5 s6 edge.. Now I have been with apple for the 6s. It just works better than android phones. Does samsung have better displays and cameras? Hell yes and I hate that apple lacks in that, but for now, I still prefer iphone for an all around phone.

      I love the s7 edge but android OS still lags a little bit. I was looking at my friends edge and started to remember why I loved those galaxy phones…. Until it lagged in my hand or stuttered when changing screens and menus, then I remembered why I jumped to apple.

      Hopefully the s8 matches the OS smoothness, so I can jump right back to Android

      • kev2684

        Stock Android (Nexus) doesn’t lag as much as Galaxies does. It’s Sammy’s add-ons that are bugging down the system. As long as Galaxy runs Touchwiz or whatever they call it now, it will lag no matter how good the processor they use. They can’t beat the pure version of the OS like Stock Android Nougat or iOS

      • Philip

        My phone is fast. I can flip thru pages here and there. Sometimes the kb or gallery doesnt come quickly. I got some cleaner to do this.

    • Mickey

      I’ll give you display, but the rest of the hardware is debatable (camera, cpu, gpu, etc…).

      • Philip

        It has wireless charging. I love it. Never want to go back to plugging. Iris scanning is cool but never use it yet. Got the s-pen. I can write on the screen and show to others what I wrote. Yes these are need vs want. But we are talking about hardware comparison here.

        • mickey

          So wireless charging, iris scanning and s-pen. Then you have to count dual camera and force touch as a hardware feature as well. I have a note 5 and I never use the s-pen. Although I know a few people that use it nearly exclusively. One thing Apple usually as an edge on is performance, camera and battery life. But we could go on and on about features that flagships have that others don’t. This is pretty much the race now isn’t it? Semi-gimmicky features that companies hope stick.

        • MattPortland

          Who f&#king cares. Use whatever phone and whatever carrier you want. If your self worth comes from what smartphone you use, you have bigger problems than loving wireless charging.

        • john

          You are right . I have a buddy who has been with two for over 12 years and he still uses the htc my touch and Samsung Galaxy s4 and he believes these are million times better than any other phones on earth be it 7 plus or note 7. He says he says and believes wireless carriers are all scam with all the new and junk products every year

    • Rob Sauceda

      Both are amazing in theyre own ways. No need to hate

    • Denaaaa

      And??? It’s almost 2017 and yet we still have you Android lovers still trying to talk your phones up. What’s so hard to comprehend that most people buy what they like. I just don’t get this Android/iPhone animosity that so many of you have

    • peelabrownie

      Each phone has it’s pluses and minuses. Some hardware is better on the iPhone and some is better on the Note.

      The note’s design is undoutabley better than the iPhone, but it gets destroyed on the CPU/GPU front. Everything else is pretty subjective, what screen looks better, what pictures look better, etc etc.

    • Allen

      I’m loyal to Apple. Not stupid loyal, but because it offers direct support even for four year old phones, high resale or trade in value (I’m trading in an iPhone 6 for brand for a free iPhone 7), good software hardware optimization (my 5 year old macbook pro still runs like new, whereas my old pcs lasted two years at most).

      The iPhone 7 blows away everyone when it comes to performance. Forget about the specs, rams, snapdragon, whatever. iPhone is always a beast. The Note 7 is good now, but in two a year it’ll start showing its age. I experienced this with the S3 and iPhone 4. I have relatives that are still using the 4 now. While the S3 was just unbearable after 1.5 years.

      You don’t need to hate. I like Android (iOS home screen is so boring) and love Samsung AMOLED screen. But everything else. I prefer Apple.

  • steveb944

    How does a current Jump customer take advantage of the free iPhone offer? Meaning can you ship to the store to trade in?
    I only saw Jump upgrade available for her online, and I assume that’s to ship to home.

    • Clementine

      You have to pay off the remaining balance and then trade in the phone. Whatever the trade in amount is, is what you pay back in 24 payments since it gets credited to the bill right away. Plus the tax and down payment if applicable. It’s worth it if your balance is low, if not just Jump your phone.

  • Jay Holm

    The iZombies are out in big numbers to buy their latest status symbol!!!

    • thepanttherlady

      No different than those that like Samsung products. Definitely no need for name calling.

      • Jay Holm

        The Fruit Phone is the ONLY manufacturer that forces case makers to display the Apple logo on the back of the case. . .so everyone can see which phone your using. . .hence the term status symbol.

        • Mike Palomba

          I always found the apple logo showing to just be attractive.

        • Jay Holm

          It’s a way of advertising to the public which phone you have, ego boost, lol…

        • Mickey

          Most cases DON’T have cutouts. There’s a lot of better reasons to hate on the iPhone but that is not even a legitimate one. What are you smoking? Can I have some?

        • MattPortland

          Even Dbrand gives you the option to have cut outs for the logo or not.

        • MattPortland

          What exactly is egotistical about it? Everyone and their grandma has or has had an iPhone. They’re not exclusive and they’re not as expensive as they once were. So, I don’t know who’s gloating about it. I’m getting one because I have used Android since the original G1 and I’m bored with it. What you’re doing is just spouting off nonsense.

        • kev2684

          Nobody “forces” case makers to make a cut-out for the Apple logo. Like 90% of the cases doesn’t have it. If Samsung or LG had a huge iconic logo at the back case makers would make a cutout option too. Look at Motorola Nexus 6 cases.

          It’s 2016 and you’re still hating on other people’s phone preference.
          Time to let it go, bud.

        • Jay Holm

          The way people actually about the IPhone just isn’t normal, theyes act like it’s some sort of cult, seriously!

        • thepanttherlady

          And those who feel the need to continually call names and comment about a phone they’re not interested in are? ;)

        • Panzer

          The same could be said for nearly anyone with a sense of brand loyalty. But for the record I agree with you Apple fans are nuts but so are everyone else.

        • MattPortland

          Some Galaxy folks are the same way. Why do you need to try to cut a person down just because they have or like a product? People have their favorite brands for just about everything. I will only buy Best Foods Mayonnaise. People don’t rush me at the grocery store telling me I’m wrong about my choice and try to get me to use Kraft Mayonnaise.

        • Allen

          If I see you I would rush you to tell you buy the store brand. /jk

        • MattPortland

          Gross

        • Denaaaa

          You’re way too old to be trolling and over a phone no less *smh*

        • Allen

          Everything is a cult nowadays. People are too fanatical about everything they own. At least Apple make high quality stuff that get update past 6 months.

        • jeffy

          Dude just stop crying that your “next big thing” blew up a few weeks after you used it. I’m sorry, just stop crying

        • Allen

          Good one.

          I have a bunch of cases that covers the back logo. Most case makers just decided to show it because they know customers like that.

        • Fabian Cortez

          The Fruit Phone is the ONLY manufacturer that forces case makers to display the Apple logo on the back of the case. . .so everyone can see which phone your using. . .hence the term status symbol.

          Do you have any evidence of this?

          This is the first time I’ve ever heard of such a story.

        • Denaaaa

          This guy is a troll. Apple does not force that on manufactures. And really not all cases have the logo display

  • George Salcedo

    Costco will have the trade in promo as well but no silly bill credits just a MasterCard.

  • Dean Smith

    What color people are buying most and 7 or the Plus?

    I ordered mine JOD, have 6s plus Gold & ordered 7 plus gold. Size would be little too big but the specs are far better . I think the Black 9 not jet black) looks best after the Gold in a clear case?

    • Classic Black….

      Without a doubt, I am going for the classic Black look…

      • Dean Smith

        why not the gold? i wonder how the matte black will look with clear case?
        the gold looks like uncovered in clear case and shines so beautifully

        • kev2684

          Clear cases turn yellow within a month or two. The only color that would work well with a clear case is Gold iPhones or Silver Titanium Galaxy S7/S7 Edge because then it’d just look like Gold Platinum.

        • MattPortland

          My clear case is still perfect and I got it in February.

          Clear https://imgur.com/gallery/gfE0O

        • Denaaaa

          I always use a clear case and I’ve never had one turn yellow. Maybe it’s the brand you’ve used? I use Spigen cases

        • Dean Smith

          what did you or the 7 or the plus and your color?

        • Denaaaa

          I got the 7 plus 32 gb in Gold

        • MattPortland

          Have you been charged?

        • Denaaaa

          Not yet, my card says pending, but I just received my order has processed text

        • MattPortland

          Oh good good.

        • MattPortland

          The Spigen cases are of much high quality than some off brand case. My clear Spigen is as clear as the day I got it in February.

        • Denaaaa

          Yeah any of the Spigen cases I’ve bought they’ve never turned yellow or even cracked and I’ve dropped my phone with a few times too

        • kev2684

          I use mainly Spigen but other brands turn yellow too

        • Allen

          Spigen gets yellow. If you remove the case you can clear see it.

        • steadymobb

          Personally just not a fan of gold colored phones. Just a preference.

        • steadymobb

          Also. Never get a clear TPU

        • Dean Smith

          either i don’t want a case or i want only clear case. I want the original look and feel unhidden in a case! I too just changed to Matte Black from Gold. I hope it looks fine in clear case like my 6s plus gold did.

        • Allen

          I agree. Why cover up that beauty. I always grab the thinnest clear hard case from Amazon. iPhone are pretty good that I had never had problem with it. I always used mine without a case. But on the iPhone 6, it got a lot of small scratches on the screen from my pulling it in and out of my pocket. So I started using a case, but find the barest one of all.

        • Denaaaa

          Why never use a clear TPU?

        • steadymobb

          They get yellow/discolored after about a month or so. Good news is they’re cheap enough to get a new one when you need it.

    • Clementine

      The most popular phone is the Black iPhone 7 in 128gb.

    • Allen

      The most popular colors this year seem to be the two blacks. I’m very tempted to get the matte black, because that’s what I thought the space grey 6 would look like. But spending the last two years with the space grey, I hated the all black screen. It is dull and dark. And most of the time I’m staring right at it, not the back of the phone.

      I used to love Gold, but this year for some reason it just didn’t do it for me. So I went with two silver iPhone 7 for my wife and I. Got her the 128GB, she takes a lot of pictures and videos, and for $100 the jump from 32GB to 128GB makes it a good deal. But I got the 32GB, because 16GB was just right for me already, so 32GB would be aplenty.

      Went with the 7 and not the plus. The plus too big and heavy for me. I love the feel of the 7. And I will miss out on that 2x zoom and bigger screen. But I use my phone one-handed and the 7 fits perfectly. I ordered the iPhone 6 Plus when it first came out and returned it because I couldn’t use it one-handed.

          That does suck. I had a crappy time when I pre-ordered the Galaxy S7 Edge. This will probably be the last time I pre-order a device.

        You don’t say! Expressing an opinion – huh, what a novel concept…

        • MattPortland

          Express away. I won’t ever see it. The fact remains that you’re essentially trolling this thread.

        • Trevnerdio

          I’m not trolling, I’m simply pointing out the fact that I’ve heard the majority of my iOS friends complain about this phone and then they fly off the shelves. I just don’t get it

        • That’s because your iOS friends are not a good representation of the general population, but they’re not far off. There are something like 500M iOS users with over 1 billion iOS devices in active use. That means most people are not upgrading. Only dumb hating trolls on the internet thinks iOS users are buying a new device every time it comes out.

        • Trevnerdio

          I guess a lot of people are still on the 5S or something and figured it was upgrade time. But I thought people would hold out for the next iPhone when Apple goes back on a couple of things that they changed about this version. And it’s not just my friends, across the internet, I’ve seen people that aren’t happy with this new phone (i.e. doesn’t bring enough, why would they remove a feature? Etc.) I’m not trolling, I just really don’t get the hype with this particular iteration.

    • Reagan1

      Yeah, I’m with you Trev. Nothing against Apple as I’m pretty indifferent, but strongly prefer my S7 (personal) over my iPhone (work). I would have thought the lack of a jack was a terrible move…guess not, if these estimates hold.

      • Trevnerdio

        I have the S7 Edge, love it. Kinda want to Jump to the V20, but really love the water resistance of this phone.

      • Allen

        For me the lack of the jack is welcomed. Seriously, I never used the thing and it’s a liability if the phone gets splashed on.

        I preordered at midnight on the 9th because simply of the free trade up offer. Was going to hang on to my iPhone 6 for another year, but the offer was too good to pass up.

  • its a shame

    t-mobile constantly brags and throws how much money they make month over month but yet the front line sales reps get paid penny’s.

    • Clementine

      Especially true if you work for WV where they constantly change the commission structure and we are paid on “Revenue Per Hour”. It sucks when we get a last minute customer and can’t give all the support we can because of the leaderboard. My last raise was .10cents considering how much revenue I brought in for T-Mobile, I should have gotten a decent raise. Can’t wait to quit but for now it pays the bills. Still job searching, and they wonder why turnover is so low.

    • Tmo-employee

      Same every quarter profits are up they then turn around and cut commission.in my area stress recieved two i phones

      • Clementine

        I was so angry when I found out my store is only getting 3 iPhones!!!

  • M H

    Just walked by 2 t mobile stores with signs posted they will be open 8am Friday the 16th

  • Staszek

    I ordered my IPhone 7 last night with customer service and today I received tracking info. I have no idea what priority lists they use. I got jet black color too.

    • kev2684

      what the frick?!

      • Staszek

        I have no idea. I wasn’t expecting that at all. I’m not complaining, but its not fair to someone who ordered last week. I’m not sure if they have software allocating units based on post codes.

        • Da Truth

          T R O L L

          NO way your ordered last night and today got the tracking.

          If so, provide the proof!!!

        • MattPortland

          That shut him up.

        • Staszek

          Your a troll

  • Myphone007

    Anyone who ordered an 7 Plus in Black or Jet Black receive confirmation of shipping?

    • Matte black ordered 6am morning of preorder. Nothing. It’s says 9/27-10/10

      • Myphone007

        Ok I’ve been reading in various places that Black and Jet Black won’t be shipping until maybe next week for the 7 Plus version.

        • That’s what I have coming. Matte black 7plus. Waiting sucks. Lol

        • MattPortland

          That’s what I ordered. I finally decide to try iPhone and who knows when I’ll actually get one. TMo promised me between 9/19 – 9/26. I no longer believe anything they say.

        • By the way i would be surprised if it went out next week. I’m thinking the week after

        • MattPortland

          My Black 7+ will be here Monday.

  • ImHomeNow

    UPDATE: I just spoke to the loyalty department. They said that all of us who got the 09/19-09/26 are based on the first shipments to be delivered. Our orders are SET IN STONE and GUARANTEED to go out no earlier than 09/19 and no later than 09/26. I asked twice if it was possible that my order would go out even one day later than 09/26 and the answer was no.
    What do you think, MattPortland?
