so i had a big question on this , how im suppose to do it lol? will they open pre order page on att bussiness for this ? since they have one on iphone 5 launch which was a major fail.. so long loading times and stuff and i had to call rep to do it which got me into late delivery argh instead of launch day friday delievery it got delivered the following week friday.

P.S i will be preordering 4 of them with gold color since gold colors were running out last launch of iphone 5s.

anyone with me on same boat please reply here, so we can stay in touch on whats going on or how they are handling pre orders.

att has iphone 6 page but its very very limited info lol just an image and email sign up.

I called today to confirm the process since I have always had to go into the store in the past.

The person I spoke with said I could preorder via Premier on the web or in the store, whatever my preference.

Then I got the summary email and it said I should use #639* to check eligibility and I wonder if she listened to me or understood anything I said. (The feature code doesn't work with CRU accounts and is why I can't preorder through Apple or online in the past)

So I'm going to have to call again or stop at the store and ask ahead of time. :/

so ill be stay up all night on friday to get on att business page at 2am cst to pre order and hopfully that coming soon icon is gone and buy it now icon is there ...:D

----------

weird they never told me that but again i also know about what you just mention about cru accounts . since business accounts as only accessible by managers or owners and they have to all it all on online or rep on customer support ( they are pretty dumb tho.........)

I used the business premier line when I preordered my 5. Ordered it at 9am the Friday they started taking orders.

No getting up in the middle of the night, no website crashes, no reloading webpages and hoping it went through, no long waits for a confirmation email....

Question on shipping address as this will be my first time preordering on the business direct premier site. In the past I have been able to choose a different shipping address from the billing address. Can I do the same when I preorder from their site when preorders start. Thanks

Look at number 5. So I'm not sure how since you need to change it prior ordering and I always had same billing and shipping (home address) so not sure man you want to call business support since there's less than 24 hrs left for pre orders to open..

Yeah I started working for AT&T and I was already planning on waiting it out till 12am and pre-order my 6 Plus and have it shipped to the house. Anyone familiar with the ship times when pre-ordering the device? For the release for the 5S I did the waiting in line adventure.

I received a email from ATT a few minutes after the keynote ended from an ATT employee.

They attached an order form saying to complete and send back the form. They said once they get in the office friday morning, they'll place all the orders on first come first serve basis.

Thought about doing that, but something felt iffy about filling out an order form because it didn't account for things like data plan options. I was a bit nervous they would mess my plan up tbh.

Im just gonna wake up on friday and hope for the best. If worst comes to worst, then i'll submit the order form. Rather not go that route though.

Im on ATT premier btw so I can't order my phone anywhere except the att site. Blower because Apple usually has the best stock on launch.

correct me if i was wrong but last year well on iphone 5 launch stocks were running on flumes and got sold out with 1 or 2 hrs and then all carriers still took pre orders without letting us know that we were backorder and everyone got emails next morning that it will ship with 14 to 21 days after launch day. Now iphone 5s was different story since there was no pre orders.

As long as you were the lucky ones to snatch one from onstock then you should receive it on launch day via fedex usually:cool:.

Well i didnt get anything about order forms but i will be staying up all night today since im getting 4 iphone 6 plus gold color. People are betting that 6plus will sell out the first and specifically gold color since it was best selling last year and was out of stock for almost month or more than that i believe so and lucky im on cst.... 2:01 am :mad::D

Are you guys an IRU or up a level? Being an IRU, I don't have to order from the premier store- have done it through Apple as well.

Might be a silly question but I will ask. I have a discount though my company that gives me a % off my monthly bill. I pay my bill each month, not the company. Is that considered "business premier"?

Whats IRU?
Corporate Responsibility Users, or CRUs, are employees who receive service under a corporate account for which their company has financial responsibility.

Companies with a qualified business agreement may also take advantage of the Sponsorship Program, which enables their employees to subscribe to service as Individual Responsibility Users, or IRUs. IRUs must have an individual 2-year service agreement and an eligible plan-this means the employee receives service under an individual account for which the employee him/herself has financial responsibility.

CRUs and IRUs are sometimes referred to collectively as "End Users".

much thanks! If you are an "IRU" you don't have to go "Business Premier" to order, correct?

Lucky. When i try through apple, I always get a message saying sorry and that accounts like mine are not able to order through the site.

I can't even order through walmart or amazon.

Unfortunate to say the least :(

i mean if I have to get up early in the morning (3AM) 12PST to place an order I will but I know I cant go in and wait in line like I did the 5S because I have to work. Hopefully I can get online early and grab one and go back to sleep and have it shipped to the house..

Yup but try to get up early around 2 so that gives you time to preload suff like login and gives you room to do stuff, because of that I'm staying up till 3am or so then get 4 -5 hr sleep
