    I went with AT&T Premier for the iPhone 4 launch last year and it was horrible. They were impossible to talk to, they shipped 2 weeks late, and they totally screwed up my credit card. I think almost everyone who ordered through Premier had problems.

    Straight with Apple this time.

    FYI... People who pre-ordered from Apple last year got them a day before the official release date.

    I don't think it really makes a difference either way.

    My brother preordered his iPhone 4 last year from AT&T and I ordered mine from Apple. Both of them showed up on the exact same day at the same time too.

    and 1080p not everyone got them a day early from Apple, only a few did. I know I didn't get mine a day early.

    apple.com as I can get an extra 1.6% cash-back via bigcrumbs.

    (Also if frequent flyer points are your game, apple.com also partners with the big US carriers -- UA, AA, DL, etc.) for extra bonus points if you use your airlines shopping portal.

    Going to the Apple site as it worked last time and IMO will be the most consistent and best performer to order from tonight/this-morning

    If every site works the same, is there a difference?

    IOW, will the Apple site know I am eligible for an upgrade through Sprint? Or, do I have to order at the Sprint site to get the discount an d renewed contract?

    Thanks!

    For my 2g, 3gs, and 4, I have always went through either Apple.com or an Apple store. To me, they seem more organized. Probably, there isn't much difference.
