    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.

    It'll only be 12:00am which is way earlier than when I usually hit the sack anyways.

    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.

    Planning to order from Apple, have always gotten good results and on-time delivery from them.

    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.

    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.
