    Apple.com preorder thread - iPhone 6/6 Plus

    Glad this thread exists! A place where we can share our experiences.

    I'll be pre-ordering a 64 GB 6 Plus at midnight on the 12th. I keep reading that a lot of people use the app. I used Apple's website for ordering the 5s without any problems. However, I'll have both the app and Apple's website up, as well as AT&T.

    Couple Verizon pre-order questions:

    1.) I will trade in my iPhone 5 for the $200 and take advantage of the 1Gb data. Can I pre-order online and still do this?

    2.) The Verizon guy told me on the phone that when I order, I can use CC or apply to the bill, get the $200 gift card, then use it towards the bill to balance out.

    Can I still add the phones to my Verizon acct whenI pre-order instead of using a CC?

    3.) Does it matter whether I pre-order from Apple site or Verizon Wireless site?

    Sounds like calling Verizon might help...

    You guys think there is any reason for apple.com to not allow us to pre-order the phones at full retail price (no contact)?

    WOOT! I finally get to participate in these threads! I'll be staying up 'til midnight tomorrow, and ordering 4 phones (3 of which are 6 or 6 pluses, the other one might be a 5S or 5C).

    I'll be up at 12:01 PST ordering on my Mac. Getting the 64GB iPhone 6 (+ is way too big :p) on T-Mobile hoping it's unlocked for use on AT&T. If it's not, well, I guess I'll be returning it then!

    I wonder why the app doesn't show T-Mobile as an option? I've heard people have much better luck with the app vs the website.

    I thought last year, the easiest way to get a unlocked GSM 5s was to buy the Verizon version? Supposedly their was a law implemented that Verizon phones had to be unlocked on the GSM bands. So ATT and T-Mobile radios where unlocked.

    I love this thread! I remember all the excitement with the iPhone 5, and now it starts with the 6.

    Awesome!! :)

    Oh, trust me... I've called a couple times and finally walked into a store. I'm not ragging on Verizon, but I've been given all sorts of conflicting info.

    I think I got it settled now.

    Anyone speak to Verizon on how the trade in works if u pre order online Friday?? I'm sure it's in store only on the 19th. I also heard Apple+ doesn't apply to this deal??

    I'd love to do that deal BUT i'm pre-ordering on either Apple or Verizon Midnight.

    The Verizon rep told me that if I pre-order online, they will send me a mailing package where I can send my used iPhone back to them, and then sometime later I'll receive a gift card (the only way Verizon will pay you for trade ins) in the next few weeks.

    This isn't bad, but I'm too cautious to mail in my trade in. I'd be really upset if I sent my iPhone 5 in, which is in pristine condition and during shipping back to Verizon it got damaged causing my trade in value to drop to nothing.

    I would love a Verizon model - but I don't have an account and AFAIK I can't pre order a Verizon device only.

    Quick question, can you add a line to an existing AT&T (or other carrier) account via ordering on Apple.com?

    Weird. That's the only way they let us pre-order the iPhone in Canada.

    That's how it is everywhere else in the world besides the U.S. I don't understand why the SIM-Free model (unlocked) doesn't come here for several months. Very annoying.

    Yes. But only if your favorite football team did better than 4-8 last year. Sorry. :eek:

    Does anyone know if the pre-order is gonna be midnight Pacific or Eastern time? Anyone remember how it was like for the 5 or 5s? I believe they didn't do pre-order for the 5s, right?
