    This was a real rush. So fast I missed the option for expedited pricing. I kept trying to see if I ordered the right phone and not the 5C

    I missed expedited shipping too. Wasn't shaking, but past experience had me primed to get the orders done before the server crashed, lol.

    Same here! I kept double checking too to make sure I got the right color and size. I didn't see the expedited option either - I wonder if Apple will allow us to change it.

    I missed it as well ....

    Same here, I was rushing to get it completed.

    I see the Gold is already bumped up to 7-10 days ... within the first 20 minutes

    I wasn't shaking but I had adrenaline. I saw the option for the shipping thing, clicked on it, couldn't understand what it said under one second so I just closed it and hit confirm order. lol

    same. I didnt see a choice for any upgrade and didnt want to slow things knowing time was of the essence. In any event it doesnt appear that it speeds things up that much but I still would have spent the $10 just in case

    We must all be crazy. It's hard to believe all the people sitting at their computers right now at this time of night ordering a phone. LOL

    I did the same but I'm just saying. Who else releases stuff with this sort of turnout/frenzy? :D

    I missed it too so I went back and ordered another. Will cancel the first one once I know 1-3 business days is really going to happen on the second one...

    I wouldn't blame anyone for this. But hands shaking? This the OP's first rodeo?

    I'm not a camper. I just can't do it. I suppose it's not as bad for the west coast folks right now, but I'm EST so it's late. I should be back in bed but I keep checking threads. lol

    I missed this option too, but called cust service after I got my confirmation email and he was able to upgrade the shipping to 2 business days.

    I wasn't shaking but Apple did throw me a curve ball with the cc security code verification at the very end. Luckily I remembered. That was definitely a life or death situation j/k...

    It was just as I remembered from previous preorders. Make sure all info is up to date with your Apple ID and you have no problems. Got my confirm email at 3:03.
