    I went to preorder and it shows the phone being 549. What gives?

    Waaay back in March 2011 they changed the upgrade rules. That every 12 mo (for $100 or more in monthly charges) mess is over. Now, they're just like the others: every 21mo. My guess is you upgraded at some point last year.

    had my 4s set to alert at 4:58pm AEST. I launched the store app on my 4s that I had preloaded with the order page from yest. Saw they took down page few hours prior to preorder. It was up with the price and purchase moments after I launched app, so don't know bout the gobal :01 after the hour scenario, but I reckon mine was in system only few seconds after it turn the hour. Got the conf email soon as I went back to my PC and checked bout 2 mins later. Noted it state available for deliver 21/9-27/9. So now I wait to see if it was worth it. They cert made it easy for us in Oz by setting the 12am Pacific time- very handy Maybe I'll get a 'Sheeple' award for my swiftness(won't call it an effort cause it wasn't)

    I preordered when I got into work about 45 mins ago and it was still at 2 weeks. I don't mind waiting the extra week because I'm sure a new JB won't be ready for it that soon anyways..

    I ordered mine at at&t's website at 7:45am EST and shows delivery for Sept. 21. I am also glad that they are letting us with unlimited data keep it. "Data Plan Unlimited on 4G LTE-R" with 25% service discount through my company.

    Yup, ATT website still saying the 21st. So that's where to go now I guess for online pre-orders if you want it then.

    For those of you that used the iOS app to order your iPhone's... Do you remember filling out rate plan info? I don't. Please, did I breeze past something?

    I pre-order my iPhone 5 right when the site came up cause it was down for almost 40 mins before pre-order, and it only took me 10 min to be done, and I have to wait 2 weeks. WTF .

    I was trying to do mine on the apple site for about 2 min and then thought about the apple store app. Went through like a charm. Was done within 5 min... Got a email instantly after placing my order saying will deliver on the 21st

    I feel your pain.I was up at 1:40am central @ 2:00am exactly I was trying to order through the apple store app, but had no way of choosing a gift card as payment, so had to wait an extra 4 min to get into the actual site, got into theire order and payment process and noticed that they would not ship to a different address then the one attached to your att account, so I then had to log into att and update my address since i have recently moved, once that was finished completed the process through apple and got an email at 3:10am central time that it will be a two week wait. maybe they will ship early and this was just a percausion that apple was taking so they didn't have a bunch of pissed off people come the 21'st

    Yep, same thing with me. I ordered at about the same time you did with Verizon and had no problems but getting the same message this morning when checking the status.
