iPhone 7 Launch - Plans?

Thought it would be fun to create a launch thread,for your iPhone 7 plans!!!

 

My iPhone 6, 2 year contract with O2, naturally comes to an end this September - just in time for the iPhone 7 launch.  Lets hope the 7 doesn't come with yet another 2 year contract?!!!!

 

So what are your plans - where will you be getting yours?!!

 

I'm not sure I'll be queuing up for the 7 this time around - far easier to order online!  I remember queuing up for the iPhone 4!! I posted my story on the old O2 forums (probably in some deep dark basement cellar by now!) but essentially, I queued up at the Apple Store in Bromley, where they were handing out cakes, coffees and all sort of stuff to people waiting!   Weirdly though, I'd struck up a friendship with some random poster on the forums, and we arranged to meet up and go together - good job he didn't turn out to be an axe murderer or something!!!!

I will see what they bring to the table before making any descision, but if I choose to go for one it will more than likely be via Apple's website and get delivery on launch day than risk going to an O2 store where they are "out of stock".

and with Launches always being on a Friday I can't queue at a store due to work commitments

I will just happily sit at home (or in Spain) and wait for the cries of outrage when folk don't get their 64gb skybluepink model they specifically ordered... Or watch another YouTube video of someone who queued for 5 days and dropped it on the pavement outside the Apple store as he rushed out to show it off. Now that is a plan...LOL

That won't stop others starting exactly the same type of thread(s)

Re: iPhone 7 Launch - Plans?

Great thread idea @DinoF! I've never owned an iPhone. I've been very happy with my Galaxy S4 but am definitely tempted to try one out when I upgrade as the S4 is a bit out of date now and starting to play up a bit.

 

What would you guys say has been the best iPhone to date?

I once saw one under a bus wheel.

Thought the iPhone 5 was THE best iPhone I have had.Perfect size, and looked great.  Still think the 6 is a little oversized and as for the 6S, well, thats just a monster............Crazy
