Anyone staying up and waiting to preorder before you go to bed?

I was going to take a nap but doesn't seem like that would be a good idea.

What is everyone doing on this lovely night?

I'm setting my alarm for about 2:50 and going to sleep for a while. I hope I can actually fall asleep, as I do get anxious about it.

Since I have work tomorrow, I have to 'try' to sleep a few hours.

I'm just wondering how I'm going to sleep for the next 7 days waiting for my new iPhone. :D

I've done the nap thing before, but I have sleep apnea (with a CPAP machine). Sometimes I'm in stages of sleep so deep no sound can rouse me.

Plus I don't use an alarm to wake up and as a result half the time when I set one I screw it up.

Where is everyone pre ordering from... Apple or Carrier? I feel Apple would be the better choice.

I have the Apple keynote on loop to help keep me awake and set the right tone before launching into the pre-order experience. Snooze you lose tonite. These are the best iPhones ever made and they will sell out very quickly.

Planning to order from Apple, have always gotten good results and on-time delivery from them.
good to know. I have AT&T and this is my first time doing the pre order online. I plan on going with Apple for it. I feel like on launch day its gonna be hard to find one.

I have used Apple for both shipping and in-store day-of-release pickup and never had an issue. The carriers seem to be a little more "fluid" with their stock levels and you see more people getting delay emails after pre-ordering and being promised day-of-release.

Plus I noticed AT&T was saying "Ships on the 19th" where Apple will have it ARRIVE on the 19th if you order one in time.

Carrier. I have to as Verizon is moving my upgrade date up one month and the only way they can honor it is by calling them. I already have it set up with someone so I just text them and they'll call me.

I have to wait until 3AM PDT so I feel your pain east coasters. I just hope that having to wait 3 hours after they started preorders doesn't mess up my plan. I want that Space Gray, 64GB, 6 Plus! As long as I don't get pushed back a month or two I'll be happy.

Interesting, well hopefully all things go right! Gonna be a nightmare at 3 with everyone. Should be delightful.
