  • iPhone 5 Preorders Open at Midnight Tonight


    We are now less than ten hours away from the start of iPhone 5 preorders being taken online.

    Tonight at midnight (PST), Verizon and Sprint will allow customers to begin preordering the iPhone 5. Although Apple and AT&T haven't yet confirmed what time they will open their respective online stores for preorders, it is believed that midnight may also be "go time."

    If you want to skip out on the online feeding frenzy, Apple's retail stores will enable customers to preorder the iPhone 5 on site beginning at 8 a.m. Friday. The device itself will arrive in stores and at your doorstep (assuming you've ordered one) on September 21st.

    While it remains to be seen if Apple's iPhone 5 sales will blow sales of previous generation models out of the water, next week's launch will be the biggest in company history in terms of the initial geographic reach of the device.

    By the end of 2012, the iPhone 5 will be available in an estimated 100 countries.

      I didn't have to change my AT&T grandfathered plan using the app store app.

      I had to 'edit' my plan for the specific third-line that I have for upgrades, maybe that's what u see. Regardless, it'll work out!

      Ordered 1 iPhone 5 on the AT&T site. Took a while was able to get thru. Got a confirmation number, but no email yet.

      Looks like the Apple site is up now.

      No. I upgraded both ip4 phones to new ones. One with unlimited data one w/out. It pre loaded my current plan for each phone and I went from there.

      I've been trying every single store there is for over an hour with zero luck. AT&T site, Apple site and the Apple Store app. I'm officially angry at this point...It'll all be well when I get that new phone on the 21st though...

      So i just ordered mines from the Verizon website and i was wondering...how do you go about activating it when the device arrives? if you do activate it...will there be a charge for that? woo! i'm so stoked that i still got to keep my unlimited data plan. but damn, $649 is alot to drop for just one phone. damn can't wait for it to arrive! i think i'll just look at it and put it back in the box till the jailbreak comes out haha!

      until you get the email stating... thank you for your order, bla bla bla... then you will know exactly when its going to be shipped out.. right now it seems everyone who lucked out and ordered one just have a confirmation order, no email yet... i am assuming emails will start getting sent some hours later... happened with ip4 and ip4s.
