Most MacRumors readers are likely planning to order their iPhone X models directly from Apple because Apple typically offers the smoothest, most streamlined pre-order process, but multiple carriers and retailers will also be offering October 27 pre-orders.

With iPhone X supplies expected to be heavily constrained, it may be worth having a backup plan in case Apple sells out right away. Some customers may also prefer to try their luck with a third-party store with the hope of less order congestion, or may need to use a gift card. We've confirmed the retailers and carriers below will be offering pre-orders in the United States.

Carriers

tmobile logo
T-Mobile has confirmed it will be accepting iPhone X pre-orders at 12:01 Pacific Time on October 27, and customers can elect to sign up for a reminder email on the T-Mobile site. Customers can also download the T-Mobile app to receive a push notification the second that T-Mobile's iPhone X pre-orders go live.

T-Mobile is offering a deal for $300 off the iPhone X with an eligible trade-in, but one of T-Mobile's installment purchase plans is required to get the deal. T-Mobile is allowing customers to buy the iPhone X outright or make a purchase using the JUMP! On Demand program or the Equipment Installment Plan.

For the Equipment Installment Plan, T-Mobile requires $279.99 down for the 64GB iPhone X, followed by 24 monthly payments of $30. For the 256GB model, T-Mobile requires $429.99 down, followed by 24 monthly payments of $30.

Under the JUMP! On Demand program, the 64GB iPhone X costs $41.56 per month while the 256GB iPhone X costs $24 per month and requires a $429.99 down payment. With JUMP! On Demand, customers can upgrade yearly.

T-Mobile customers will need to order from either Apple or T-Mobile as other retailers are not offering T-Mobile devices as a pre-order option.

ATT new 2016 logo
AT&T is accepting iPhone X pre-orders on October 27 starting at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time.

Like other carriers, AT&T is offering up to $300 in credits with the trade in of an iPhone 7 Plus, or up to $200 with the trade in of other devices.

Pricing on AT&T's 24-month Installment Program starts at $41.63 for the 64GB iPhone X and $47.88 per month for the 256GB model, but AT&T offers several plans, including AT&T Next and AT&T Next Every Year, so pricing may vary depending on what you choose.

Verizon's website isn't listing a specific time for the iPhone X, but Verizon support says pre-orders will be accepted starting at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time on October 27.

Verizon is offering up to $300 off the iPhone X with an eligible smartphone trade-in, with the credit applied over a 24 month period. A device payment plan is required to get the deal.

Verizon's 24-month Device Payment Program requires customers to pay $41.62 per month for the 64GB iPhone X and $47.87 per month for the 256GB iPhone X. Verizon is also allowing customers to pay full price for the iPhone X.

sprintlogo
Sprint's website says iPhone X pre-orders begin on October 27th at 2:00 a.m. CST, aka 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time, the same as every other carrier.

With Sprint's 18 month Flex Lease, customers will need to pay $41.67 per month for the 64GB iPhone X. The 256GB iPhone X is also priced at $41.67 per month, but it requires a $150 downpayment. Sprint is also offering outright purchases.

With a Sprint Flex Lease and a trade-in of an eligible device, Sprint is discounting the iPhone X by $350, with the discount applied over the course of 18 months.

virginmobile
Virgin Mobile is not accepting pre-orders for the iPhone X on its website, but customers can go to an Apple Store on Friday, October 27 to pre-order and take advantage of an in-store offer that will let customers get six months of Virgin Mobile service for $1.

Customers will need to ask for the Inner Circle promotional deal at the Apple Store.

xfinitymobilelogo
The iPhone X will be available for pre-order through Comcast's Xfinity Mobile starting on October 27. Xfinity Mobile, available only to Comcast customers, allows users to pay $12 per 1GB of data usage or $45 per line for unlimited data that's throttled after 20GB.

Customers who buy an iPhone X through Xfinity Mobile and also sign up for Xfinity Internet, TV, and mobile service can get a $500 gift card.

Retailers

bestbuy
Best Buy has confirmed that it will begin accepting iPhone X pre-orders on October 27 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time.

Best Buy will have Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint models available for purchase.

targetlogo
Target will be offering iPhone X pre-orders starting on October 27, and while the website does not list a specific time, it's likely pre-orders will kick off at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time.

Target will have Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint models available for purchase.

Wrap Up

There's no word on how many iPhone X devices these retailers have available for launch day delivery, but oftentimes carriers and major retailers have at least some limited amount of stock available to fulfill online pre-orders on launch day.

Did we miss a retailer that's offering iPhone X pre-orders? Let us know and we'll add it to the list.

Update: US Cellular is also offering October 27 pre-orders for the iPhone X.

55 countries, just about all the usual carriers and retailers offering it..... no way this thing is limited to 2-3 million at launch like Kuo said... I think his source played him

Just wait, in 2 - 3 days, if it turns out that Apple has a ton more supply than rumored, people will be bitching because Apple mislead everyone about inventory. o_O

Just wait, in 11 or so months, all the same people will have forgotten about this scarcity scam and fall prey to it again... for the 10th time. Basically, many of us know the game but play anyway. It's like watching the same movie over and over again but expecting a different outcome each time. We watch, we are seduced into somewhat believing, some of us drag ourselves out of bed at the worst time of our sleep cycle, our orders are typically fulfilled, we gush "I got one" like we won some precious contest, and then we forget THIS movie and it's almost entirely new to us next year.

Apple only has to push the same play button each year, where the definition of "play" is different for them. If it ain't broke???

I'm a little surprised AT&T isn't following the other carriers and offering similar deals on trade-ins. Anyone have an inside view on why not?
AT&T is offering the same deal, I just didn't see it as of last night when I wrote this post. I've updated with it! $300 off with trade in of iPhone 7 Plus. $200 with other devices.
