    i haven't decided if i will pre order the iPhone 5 or if I will wait in line for it. If i ended up pre ordering i will be adding a phone too my line, will they be able too make a new line for me while I'm pre ordering the phone?

    Online will be backed up but so will stores on release day. It's totally up to you but I've been able to pre-order iPhones and iPads for release day delivery just fine online. You just keep trying and you'll get it - also, the system has gotten better over the years.

    1. Yeah, you'll get it. With the iPhone 4, the page was up and stable after a few minutes. From what I recall, it was pretty early in the morning. But if you're there right away, you should be good.

    2. Yep, I've done that. Works fine.

    alright cool thanks for the help, I will be trying early in the morning so hopefully I can get it. do you have the option of picking it up at the apple store or recieving it at your house?

    In the past, you've been able to reserve a phone for in-store pickup (without paying ahead of time) or order one for home release day delivery.
