    Hey guys,

    Every year I preorder the new iPhone at midnight on the first preorder day so that I can get the device on launch day. I currently have Verizon.

    I am considering switching my cell service to T-Mobile and wanted to know if they do the same thing.

    Will I be able to preorder from their site and get the latest device?

    Anyone have experience with T mobile preorders?

    Yes, you can preorder through T-Mobile's website. They're usually available at the same time, 3AM EST on preorder day. The website can be a complete mess though compared to Verizon's, so be prepared for that. Also, probably not relevant for you, but you can't order online if you're on Jump On Demand - only Jump or regular orders.

    T-Mobile does offer their existing customers an opportunity to pre-order the latest iPhone(s). However, I don't think they are quite as organized as Verizon is. Their site is usually difficult to navigate at those times. Also, I do not know if any of this applies to a new customer. If you're thinking of switching and want a new iPhone on launch day, you would be better off going into a T-Mobile local store and let them do the paper work for you. I have always found I get better service that way than trying to do anything on their website.

    Thanks for the information everyone. Maybe I'll just preorder through Apple then.

    Your decision to preorder via Apple is very wise.

    Yep, Magenta does take pre-orders. They also have their own backorder list too, so you may need to bring over your Verizon based device as it is unlocked and could be primed for a BYOD option to use service while you're waiting for your new product. Their pre-order process is relatively smooth. I got the GS8 pre-order on the last day and got it within a timely fashion close to the release date for a last second order.

    Yes you can but like others have already started, it is a nightmare.
