    What the title says. Do I have to order it online or can i get it at an apple store?

    Also, I've read that they give u at least something if you trade in your iPhone 4S. Is that true?

    Yes they sell them unlocked.
    But I don't think they do trade ins like a car dealership.

    Yes they do. But the Apple store will not give you any money for your 4S. Try gazelle or a radio shack.

    Awesome. I'll probably just sell it on eBay. Will the mms settings be the same for the iphone 5 that it is for the 4s for tmobile?

    Yes and Yes. but you'll get more if you sell it on Amazon.
    Much better idea.
