    Hi- the subject pretty much explains my question:
    Online? Phone company or Apple?
    Store? Phone company or Apple?

    Time is a factor for me... I have no working phone. So is taxes and fees. Is it cheaper online for example? I have all of these things accessible to me... time and money not so much.

    I'm with sprint, no snarky comments please.

    I buy all of my iPhones @ the Apple Store. There isn't any discounts but anything you need for the iPhone is in reach.

    It'll cost the same no matter where you buy it. Just depends what store is closest to you. But like poster above says the Apple store will have accessories and other things you might need.

    Go to the store. I try to avoid buying online.

    Apple Store, or Apple.com

    I have AT&T and I haven't been back to their store in years. I only go to the Apple Store.

    We can't punish you more than you've already punished yourself ;)

    Seriously though, if you're in a hurry you can reserve online at apple.com starting at 9:00 tonight (actually start refreshing a few minutes before) and have one waiting for you at your local apple store tomorrow.

    Apple store(if u have one close by) or Apple.com if not.
    Customer service is better and u get a full 30 days to return.

    Some carriers only have 14 days or worse to return.
    Returning is important because if u get a bad iphone, then u have some time to consider returning.
