    Hey everyone!

    Who's preordering an iPhone 6/+?

    I'm getting an iPhone 6 as I have a 5, and a 5.5 inch phone is too big for me.

    Does anyone know what time preorders will happen? Do I have to wake up at 3AM?

    Most likely if you live on the east coast you will need to wake up 3:00am. If you wait till 7:00am you might not get the iPhone on launch day.

    i'm gonna get a 6 in 64GB, not sure about the color yet! i was really thinking about getting the plus but after i built a dummy and saw how big it was in my hand and i didn't feel like i could comfortably reach the other side of the screen for one handed typing i settled on the 6

    i think the last years it was always 12 o clock friday morning PST

    I'm getting a space grey 64 GB, but not sure if it'll be the plus or not.

    How old are you? 12am could be 4 hours after you go to bed, depending on if you are 10 or 80 yrs old.

    How fast do pre-orders go?

    I hate that pre-order day is on a school day so I can't just wake up and get to it.

    I'm hoping that I can pre-order, then go on that next Friday to the Apple Store and get it (I've always wanted to get an Apple product from the Apple store!), or if not I might try to pre-order from Verizon, or as a last-ditch effort, just beg and plead at the Verizon store or my local Apple Store to find me one. I know the 16GB ones always go first so I won't mind having to bump up to a larger size, and if they say they have only one color available I will just jump on it. I won't wait weeks just to get a different color (reason my retina mini is Gray instead of White).

    ----------

    Friday, September 12th, 12:00am PST/3:00am EST

    Gonna go to bed super early, set an alarm to get up at like, 2:40-2:50 (assuming I have my money by then), gonna buy it, then go right back to sleep.

    Hate that it's on a school day, but what should I have expected? Launches are never saturday/sundays.

    I am 9. Seriously though. I'm just trying to ask if it's Thursday night or Friday night.

    Question

    Can I pre-order at the Apple store and then pick it up there on the 19th? I use AT&T and have full upgrade available.

    You'll need to wake up before 3:00 am on the east coast.

    If it's like years past, it'll be 12:0:01 am on Friday morning (Pacific time)

    So, 1 am mountain, 2 am central, 3am east coast, on Friday morning.

    Again - assuming it's like previous years.

    ----------

    I haven't seen any info on that - but I would guess not. I don't think they've offered that as an option since the iPhone 4 (or maybe it was the 4S)

    Anyone have the feeling that

    a)5.5" iPhone 6 Plus will sell much more than first thought
    b)The scalper folks are going to be there queueing extra early? Even more so if the mix is much more iPhone 6, than iPhone 6 Plus.

    12 am Friday. Is it that hard to understand? Maybe a little easier to understand. It will be open for pre order the minute the date changes from 11th to 12th. PST

    64 GB Space Gray 6+ for me.

    But just to be clear, pre-orders are open for BOTH the 6 AND 6+ on Sept. 12th?

    PDT - unless you want to be an hour early, or late??? Daylight savings sucks.

    I agree, people seem to be wanting the 6+ because it's more different than the 5S

    Verizon's website: Pre-order begins September 12. Online at 12:01 AM PST.

    Looks like I'll be asking to go into work later on Friday.

    sim-free phone

    I avoid contracts with AT&T and just buy phones at the full price. This option does not yet appear on this list of available phones. Anyone have any idea when they will release unlocked models? Is there a previous thread about this issue?

    I am not so sure. They are doing pre-orders, that tells me they have a decent supply. They didn't do that last year because of rumored "supply constraints"

    Wake up early Friday, hope the website isn't too much BS and you won't have to worry.

    I was wondering the same thing. The only option I see right now is the T-Mobile contract free iPhone.... Can I order that one as an AT&T customer and just pop my AT&T sim card in? Or is there a difference in the antenna?

    Or queue up Thursday night, see how the stock is and then order then? We'll see - haven't seen many iPhone launches that had smooth ordering online. And as Tim Cook said - they're expecting mother of all upgrades this year. We wait and see. Hope they've got the stock mix with enough iPhone 6 Plus
