    So my phone is on my wife’s business account and the last phone I got on launch day was the 6 plus. To do this I waited in line at a local ATT store because, being on a business account, it created issues with billing when pre ordering.

    To my point....

    Has anyone pre ordered when the ATT store opens and gotten it on launch day? I realize that they wouldn’t get my order in until around 7 or so hours after the Apple store offered it for sale. I’m wondering if Apple sets a certain number aside for each carrier or they all come from the same stock when pre ordering.

    I worked for corporate AT&T when the 6 came out. It was a huge launch. When we opened in the morning for pre orders for the iPhone 6, the wait was already 3-4 weeks for every model.
    I know that doesn’t directly answer your question, but it’s a perfect example of what you might expect by pre ordering through the carrier store when they open in the morning.

    There's already a line, if you're not reading this post while waiting in line then it's already too late.

    The carriers start taking preorders at midnight, same as Apple, at least T-Mobile did with the iPhone 7. I don’t think you would get one if you waited until the next day.

    No. Apple doesn’t favor anyone.

    It’s the same for everyone. 12:01AM PCT.

    This answers my question perfectly. I guess I’ll try and preorder through ATT while waiting in line at my local store to see if I can grab one on launch day. I managed to be one of 6 that were able to get the 6 plus on launch day. Maybe I’ll get lucky again lol.
