    Do you think we will be able to order the 5S on apple.com at 12:01am and then have it ready to pick up in the store?

    According to other forum members, in store pickup wasn't an option for the 5 until a few weeks after it arrived in stores.

    Given the lack of preorders this year, too, I would assume in store pickup won't be an option either.

    I spoke with Verizon & and Apple customer service and they both confirmed that this can't be done and you'll have to try your luck in stores. :(

    Bummer. Hopefully the local Verizon store gets enough on stock. Thanks!

    In another thread someone posted they spoke with an an Apple Rep and that store pickup would be available Friday. I think that has to be a mistake as we have had have numerous people talking and chatting with reps who said the exact opposite.

    I will be up at 3:01 to give it a try regardless. If its a no go, off to the store to line up.

    The truth is that no one really knows what the hell is going on.

    I'm going on that assumption, too.

    Lol so true. Just go stand in line if you want it Friday. That's the only for sure way as of right now.

    I was not that person, but I also spoke with an Apple rep who stated that he "didn't see why not" when I asked about ordering online for in-store pickup on the 20th.

    Hardly an answer the exudes confidence. Again I hope this is the case but I'd be prepared with a backup plan.

    I just spoke with a Verizon rep and they said in store pickup will be available starting at 12:01 AM PST.

    I wish they would officially announce if it will be available or not.

    Apple never allows in-store pickup until the stock supply is steady. No way they will do it on the first day with people waiting in lines.

    Agreed, there is absolutely no way you will be able to order and pick up on launch day.

    I know it's not the same product line, but for the iPad 3 launch they did not have in store pick up option at 1201am. I happened to check later on in the night and the option appeared. I picked it up in store launch day after the rush died down without any issues at all. They were sold out otherwise. Weird.

    Wrong context. rw3 was correct that you couldn't order online for launch day pickup.

    I just checked personal pick up and Grand Central has a 32GB model. No 64GB available anywhere for pick in NYC. Which is what I wanted. Mine is being delivered on Wednesday anyway

    I wonder when they update the availability online for pickup. I'm trying to decide if I should just hit my local apple store when they open and see if a shipment came in. Online says nothing available and I am sure not taking a train into NYC for an iphone.

    If it works like prior years, they update in the evening around 10pm with the stock available for the following day.
