    I highly doubt they know what they are talking about, but I may still be staying up until 11 (central) to find out. :)

    Great, so my plan was to go to bed a bit early tonight, set my alarm for 2:50am ET to buy them phone at 3. Now I'm unsure what to do.

    AT&T and Verizon both say 12:01am PST

    So that would be 3:01EST

    Do both. Stay up till midnight (or go to bed earlier and set your alarm for 11:55PM), and if not selling yet, then try again at 3AM.

    LOL, might be doing the same.. But then what happens if it doesn't end up starting until 3? Do you have to work early in the morning?

    BTW, how did you chat with them? Wouldn't mind chatting with them myself to see if any of them will say 12:01am PT :p

    LOL, well then im not sure...just go to the pre order page on apple and there should be a chat now button

    Gotta question for you guys. This will be my first time ordering two phones for different eligible numbers on my account. One for me and one for my wife. Will I be able to do that in one session when I get in or will it be two separate orders?

    exactly. It is a preorder date of 9/12 and is based on the west coast. That would not be 9/12. It is definitely 3:01 am EST/ 12:01am PST.

    Didn't even think of that, it would be 9/11 and not 9/12 for the West Coast. Definitely not happening.
