    So I plan to preorder the iPhone 5 tomorrow and I'm pretty stoked; this will be my first iPhone. Having never done an iPhone preorder before, I just want to know:

    Is it better to preorder directly through the online Apple Store, or through your cellular carrier (Verizon, in my case)? Are there any differences?

    Thanks! :)

    Biggest difference are the return policies. Apple no restocking fee, carriers typically 15%. Both options allow use of the apple stores for the warranty service.

    I'd like to hear some thoughts on this as well. I prefer Apple but I don't know if I'll even be able to through them
