    Ive never gotten an iPhone on release before so ..

    My contract is now run out .. I'm just rolling waiting for the 5 ... i have my PAC code all sat waiting to go ..

    When they release the 5 - can i just walk into the carrier shop (o2, vodafone) and start up a new contract?

    Do carriers get them on the first day? Or just Apple?

    Carriers will get them the same day the Apple store gets them. I think sometimes Apple has a different release date for international markets so depending on where you are from, you might be waiting a bit longer.

    Hopefully that's not the case.

    Normally they will let current bill pay customers first dibs. New customers will have to wait.

    But depending on where you live... you won't be casually walking into the store and out with a newly released iPhone. Easiest way is to pre-order when available and have it mailed to your house.

    No matter where u live, or when the phone is released, it's going to be mayhem in any store the first week of launch. Either u camp out the day before the launch, preorder through apple OR ur carrier, or BOTH. Me, I will be preordering for in-store pick up, and camping out the night before. Can't be too careful. Lol..plus, I love the whole "camping out for iPhone" experience.
