    I plan on ordering the 5S directly through AT&T's website due to a company discount. Does anyone have any insight from past launches as to whether the carrier websites open their pre-orders at 12:01 PST as soon as Apple does?

    I have ordered from the AT&T online store in the past and it has always opened at the same time.

    Not that you asked, but i was on the phone w/ AT&T this morning and asked if they offered in-store pickup for online orders and she said no (which is what I expected but I figured I'd give it a shot). :rolleyes:

    Company discount on the device or the plans?

    Don't know about AT&T, but Verizon states on their website that online sales begin at 1201 PDT and store sales at 8 am.

    Just the plans - wish it was on the phone as well!

    Thanks all for the insight - hopefully the stock will be as plentiful as the 5c..

    Yes, if you're just ordering an upgrade and don't get an equipment discount no need to go through AT&T. You keep the same plan and keep the discounts. If it's a new plan, still order from Apple and then go to AT&T to establish the discount on the plan.

    Note for AT&T: if you're on a company discount you probably end up at the AT&T Premier site not the regular AT&T ordering site. Premier has sometimes been a little different than the AT&T site in terms of ordering and shipping. Just mentioning this so folks new to this are prepared to see others reporting different experiences if they ordered from the regular site.
