Hey everyone, I just wanted to get a thread going to help everyone in the MacRumors community have a smooth a preorder process as possible. Every year, there's people here complaining about the preorder process, and a lot of strife can be avoided by being prepared. The advice I can give only pertains to ordering from the Apple Website for AT&T as an UPGRADE, as that's all I have experience with. Anyone who has done it in other ways is welcome to add their knowledge to this thread. THERE ARE A FEW RUMORS THAT PREORDERS WILL START TODAY: I don't find this likely, but I've prepared anyway, just in case, and you should too. For preordering through the Apple online store, it is VERY IMPORTANT that the billing address on your account be the address you want the iPhone sent to BEFORE you begin the preorder process. I recommend you double check this now, and make any necessary changes. Check which lines are eligible now, and decide what line(s) you will be upgrading on. Things get hectic on preorder day, and you don't want to be checking eligibility in the middle of all that. Note that upgrade swaps are very possible and quite easy, so that's an option for you. And, above all, start hitting the site as soon as preorders open. I hate to tell people to swamp the site, because it does mean we're all in for a slower experience, but these things ALWAYS sell out on day one, and you don't want to be without because you waited a few hours for everything to die down. Again, any other pointers, feel free to add to this thread. Happy iPhone day!
