    There will a specified time that pre orders start and at that time you can place your order online through Verizon or Apple.

    If you're just going to repeat the same question that has been answered many times over after I gave you some friendly advice, I'm just going to give you the same friendly advice again:

    You're absolutely right; you can take every bit of my advice and...well...do whatever you please with it.

    The hordes descending (or lack thereof) should be indicative of the validity of my posts towards you and it's representation of the masses' opinions.

    Good day, Sir. :cool:

    I'd say negative. The preorder for the 4s started at 12 midnight PST (3 EST) the Friday 2 days after the announcement. My guess is it will likely be another midnight start time to coincide with the start of a new business day and will let them take down their site for updated at a less disprutive time before starting preorders. As for which day--I'd guess either Thursday or Friday.

    It was hard enough trying to preorder at 3 am EST so imagine the absolute chaos if they started preorders in the middle of the day.

    You'll want to pre-order from Apple, and NOT Verizon. Verizon's website is known for crashing way too easily when it gets slammed with orders. By pre-ordering with Apple, your order is way less likely to be rejected.

    Here's everything you might want to know:

    1) You cannot pre-order in-store. You can only pre-order online.

    2) You can pre-order from apple.com, or verizonwireless.com. However, pre-ordering from apple.com is preferred, as it is less likely to reject your pre-order.

    3) We should find out when pre-ordering will begin after the announcement on Wednesday. In the past, pre-ordering has started at 12 AM Pacific, which is 1 AM Mountain time, 2 AM Central time, and 3 AM on the east coast.

    I hope I've answered your questions. I'd be happy to answer any other questions you have. If I can't answer them, I'll also point you in the right direction to finding out. :)
