I just left the Verizon store in Bedford Hills, saw an 8 Plus iPhone and am going for it.
I liked the size and weight. Everything worked for me. Only weird thing, this Verizon franchise wouldn’t allow me to buy it outright, cash. Their store, for whatever reason, can only sell it to me if I finance it. How strange.
Once I get back to the house, I’ll order it online at Apple and have it by tomorrow. I know how to change the SIM card and my phone is already backed up into the iCloud.
Good to go. Yay!!
