We've known for months that getting an iPhone X on launch day will be hard. Unless you have a confirmed pre-order set for delivery on the 3rd, or you're reading this from the sidewalk in front of the Apple Store, you're likely not going to be getting a device.
But the bad news just keeps coming, as we've confirmed that one traditionally popular method of getting a phone on launch day won't be working this year.
It looks like virtually zero carrier stores will have any iPhone X devices in stock Friday morning, according to retail employees and carrier spokespeople.
T-Mobile told BGR "We’ve seen a ton of excitement around iPhone X during pre-order, and in-store inventory at launch will likely be very limited. We’ll have plenty of demo devices, and customers can go to a T-Mobile store to touch, feel and experience iPhone X and order one right then and there. The iPhone X will be out of stock at virtually every carrier store on launch day
