    I'm stuck upgrading through Verizon, so it looks like I'll be planted in front of my computer at 12:01AM on the 27th.

    Assuming you are West coast, good luck. If you aren't, make sure you accommodate, 3AM east coast time for example.

    If preorders become available at 12:01AM EDT, it would be 9:01PM on the 26th for me in Phoenix. But it looks like availability will be based on Cupertino time?

    And what informs that take of yours? I mean, I hope you're right, but this isn't some crackpot site reporting it.

    By the way, I’m committed to being up at 2:01 AM (my time) tomorrow night in order to try to snag a 256 GB Space Gray iPhone X. But if, like the original Apple Watch, the order comes back with a “delivery in 6-10 weeks” notification, I may cave and go for an iPhone 8 Plus.

    My iPhone 6 is on it’s last legs (have to charge it every 4 hours) and I’m not going to be able to wait another 2 1/2 months ...

    I’ll be there with you guys awake and ready to order at 12:01am.

    There’s one thing I’m worried about, and curious if you guys experienced this because I want to try to resolve it. The last time I tried to pre-order something, I think it was the first iPad Pro, I did it on my iPhone 6 and used Apple Pay as I was trying to get the order in as fast as I could. But it was refusing to accept the Apple Pay because of one of the shipping parameters. I think because I was trying to ship it to my place of work, but billing address is my home. I tried to make the office address as my default but it just would not work. I ended up ordering via my iPad using my credit card.

    I’ve set up the iPhone X as a favorite this time so that should speed up the ordering process a little and I’ll try it first with my iPhone 6 and pay with Apple Pay. Maybe iOS 11 fixed some of these issues? If it does not work, I’ll try it on my iPad Pro with the credit card. :(

    Nelson,

    I’ll be using the iPad Pro with the Apple store app.

    I preordered the iPhone 8 for my daughter that way a few weeks ago — and had it shipped to my business address — without issue.

    Thanks a lot for that info Joseph. I have Apple Pay set up in the iPhone only. So maybe it will work. I could set up Apple Pay in the iPad Pro as a back up.

    That’s great news it worked for you.
