    Pre-orders for the new iPhone 4S were supposed to kick off at 12:01 a.m. pacific. Both VerizonWireless.com and Sprint.com websites became available just at that time for preorders, while Apple's and AT&Ts have not yet updated.

    Apple's website is having some intermittent errors presumably due to the traffic. Sprint's pre-orders also seems to having some troubles while we've seen successful Verizon pre-orders already.

    Even worse than last year so far on the Apple/ATT side, what a mess.

    On the AT&T page, I got to where I selected the capacity and color for the 4S. Selected 32GB, White, and then it failed to load. Haven't been able to get to that page again. :(

    Actually, the preorder option is there for AT&T... just not working. ><

    Ah well, screw tomorrow's classes. This is more important.

    I haven't seen any sign of pre-orders being available on AT&T yet. Got a message one time that they were updating the site. Other than that, still gives me the same upgrade options as earlier in the evening.

    No problems on Verizon.

    I just pre-ordered on Verizon and had no issues.

    Ordered successfully on Verizon

    Submitted order at 12.01. The option to purchase was loaded earlier. The weird thing was that it asked me if i want to include a Sim card and when i said yes, it forced me to buy a global data plan. I hope I will be able to cancel it when I get the phone. I didn't want to get the phone without a sim card.

    I guess there was an upside about going with Verizon after all. I was able to pre-order pretty quick. Sorry a lot of you still have to wait! Goodnight everyone! Hope you don't have to wait too much longer!

    So is only the mobile version of MR working?

    Sigh. I'm now getting the "pre-order now" button, but when I get to the place where you choose the phone, 4S isn't listed yet.

    Here's my problem.

    Got in on Verizon (upgrading from blackberry). I clicked to keep my same existing plan which is unlimited data. Then it made me choose on the next screen from 2, 5, or 10 GB plans! It wouldn't let me NOT choose. How long do you have on verizon to edit your account? Because I should be grandfathered in, but it's not letting that be an option.

    I think I pre-ordered successfully?

    On Verizon.

    I'm a little concerned because I didn't receive a confirmation email or anything, and I'm jumping the AT&T ship with the 4S.

    But I printed the page that gave me an order number, so hopefully I'm okay?

    How the hell do you pre order from AT&T. AT&T is the first carrier to have the iPhone and they can't even get their site working.

    I have a feeling. Verizon's orders are to Verizon without verification from Apple.

    AT&T's on the other hand use Apple's systems (because of having been the exclusive) and must wait on Apple for actual confirmations.

    Sprint... well, thats always a mess.

    Getting nothing on apple. Still says site is down. AT&T gives me the option to chose which number I want to upgrade and nothing. Just times out or redirects to an error page. Been trying sense 2:01 my time.
