    Last couple of launches Best Buy lagged behind quite a bit. I'd be careful unless you're okay with the prospect of not getting your phone till a couple of weeks or even a month/months later, because it might happen.

    Just working there for the Galaxy S5 launch, the preorder process went pretty well. Customers were able to come in on launch day and pick up their phones. My boss actually told me today that we were doing pre orders on Friday. Gonna talk with him tomorrow to get more info as far as how much you gotta put down for the 6/6+ and if you can buy it full retail and all that jazz

    I'm very interested in this since I want to do early upgrade and will have to pay full retail ( with the $200 discount of course)

    It just depends on which store you go to. Some stores have their ***** in order and preorder and actual launch day goes smoothly. Other stores? Not so much lol. Had one store in my city where the 5S launch was a complete disaster

    Cool, I'll let you guys know what I find out tho. If you have an early upgrade available with AT&T then you'll pay the upgrade price + an early upgrade fee (which is like 200 bucks) If you don't have an actual upgrade available then of course you buy the phone full price. You could always put it on a best buy card too, if you're into that kinda thing. It's 0 interest...as long as you pay your stuff off in time lol

    For now, sticking with S5. I want to actually touch the 6/6+ first, and I will be driving iOS8 on my 5S for about a month.

    Then I'll make a decision.

    Too many bad stories that I'd prefer to buy from Apple or carrier first.

    Sounds cool. Please share any info. I never preordered from bestbuy in store or online but would like to do so this year. Hopefully, I can thru online. Otherwise, it'll be thru apple.

    As far as I am concerned, Best Buy pre-ored; Like the holocaust....never again.
