Carrier: New phones available in July! Will have sim cards for BYOP!
Me: Awesome! I can finally replace my ancient Moto X and I only have to wait a few weeks!
Carrier: New phones available July 28!
Me: Well I guess that’s technically still July...
Later in July
Me: Oh look, Amazon has the phone I want for $150 off retail, I’ll take it! Only two more weeks until I can use it.
Carrier: New phones are here! Order now!
Me: Where are sim cards?
Carrier: Oh, those won’t be available until August 11.
TL;DR: Was told I could get a new phone in July, can’t use new phone until mid August.
