    I believe the preorder for the 4S was 3am EST (12am pst). Will it be the same for the iPhone 5? Has a time been released at all?

    All I can find is a date, Apple usually uses PST so 3AM EST is my guess for now. Setting the alarm... :mad:

    9to5Mac says Sprint starts at 12:01 PST (3 AM EST) so I imagine it's the same everywhere.

    "A few minutes late"... famous last words. The preorder website is likely to be swamped, and it might go down. You might spend hours waiting for it to load.

    Just a warning, that happened to me last year.

    Yes, it's 12:01am PDT on Friday. Sprint and Verizon (and presumably AT&T) are launching pre-sales on their respective websites at that time, as well.
