    Will you get your 5s sooner if you order online from Verizon or Apple? I won't be able to go to stores until 6 PM, and I don't want to risk not getting one, so I'll order online.

    Will I get my phone faster if I order through Apple or Verizon? (16GB Space Gray if that matters)

    Also, which way are you guys ordering?

    This is the exact question I came here for...

    Hopefully some have prior experience and can give us an idea.

    Through apple.com and no, you will get your iPhone at the same speed on either website.

    Are you sure? Because the verizon chat reps are saying it will ship in 2 days, and Apple's site is probably going to say 7-10 days after about 1 hour

    Not exactly true. Carriers and Apple have had different speeds in the past.

    AT&T Premier

    As a business customer I have to go through the AT&T Premier site, at least that's what I had to do last time. With the 5 you couldn't pre-order until about 2-3 hours after the apple.com site went live. It took me about 15 minutes to get the order to go through but I still got in on release day.

    This time they have the 5s advertised as going on sale at 12:01am same as Apple.

    Should I trust the delivery times? Like if Verizon's or Apple's site says shipping in 2 days, should I expect a phone in 2 days?

    No. It means shipping is 2 days. Not you will receive in 2 days. If it ships in 10 days, then 2 days after it ships you will receive it.

    I've always ordered through AT&T simply because their site was fast and I've always received it on release day.

    Debating on ordering it through Sprint.com or Apple.com ... has anyone in a past experience ordered an iPhone on launch day through Sprint? How was the experience?

    Considering going to the sprint store tomorrow when they open. I have no experience with ordering online however. I figure I might have an ok shot at one right at open. One has to fall through the cracks and into my hand tomorrow somehow
