  • 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 called Apple and spoke to a sales representative and they said at 12:01 AM PST you can order the iPhone 5 online off their website.

      Go ahead, call and ask, I dare you.

      I wish it was 12:01AM EST instead of PST.. 3:01AM is too late for me to stay up and too early to wake up! I think they'll have enough even if I order after 7am EST when I wake up without having to wait weeks after release to get one.

      I got my 4s long after it was released but recall that getting my iP4 was a bit rough via apple.com. I ended up using AT&T's website. I recall also though that those who ordered via apple.com got there's delivered the day before everyone else.

      Now I'm confuddled. I'll try apple first, AT&T if that fails. No one in my house sleeps tonight until I have an iP5!

      I had the reverse scenario happen. I used to use the AT&T web site for all the releases, but when I ordered the 4S they jerked me around on the delivery times till finally I got it direct from Apple and had the AT&T order cancelled. I'll be up at 3am.
