    For those countries receiving their iPhones on September 28th, will Apple be offering pre-order, as they did for UK/US/DE etc?

    Looking at the Apple website for the Czech Republic and Ireland, I still just see a coming soon message. Not even mention of an actual release date yet.

    Same story in the Netherlands.

    Some Apple employees stated that we would only be able to order the iPhone 5 on the 28th of September. Sad, looks like there will be no pre-orders for the countries of "the second group".

    No pre-orders here in Finland. I'll go buy it in person on the 28th at 9 AM.

    No pre-orders here in Austria as well, but that's no surprise. With the 4s you could not pre-order as well, but only order on launch-day. I assumed it would be the same for iPhone 5.

    Yes there is

    both www.telecom.co.nz and www.vodafone.co.nz offering pre orders for next week.

    No Contract Free options though, and telecom (who I normally go with) only offering iPhone 5 on select plans, not all.

    Sigh..

    Yeah I want it on prepay. Don't wanna sign a 2 year contract :eek:

    Such a shame, Telecom offered 4S on prepay last year and even gave a free sim (and I switched back to 2D after getting my iPhone)

    I have another year on a crap telecom plan. Want to terminate ($300 ouch) and go on the telecom $19 prepaid plan.

    Really want to get this outright, have been going through all the facebook comments from both telecom and vodafone, telecom have said no, vodafone is avoiding the question.

    I'll be going with prepay too (same with iPhone 4 and 4S). Had Telecom and Vodafone offered slightly more generous plans, I may have been swayed. I also want to keep my options with Telecom open for when they launch the LTE trial this year.. Hopefully prepay customers will get to participate - if so, I'm there!

    I'll be ordering through the Apple Store. I don't have any hard evidence, but from reading various forums over the past two years I'm under the impression that any service/replacement required will be taken care of nicely, whereas it seems many people have had the run around when requesting repairs or service through resellers.

    Yeah, annoying isn't it. $19 plans are great

    ----------

    I'll order off apple as well. But if there's no pre orders then it means it will only be available to order on the 28th. And most likely will have a 2 or more week shipping :mad:

    I payed it in cash, without plan. I already have a plan on my 3G that is currently just being lifted over in form of a nano sim to my iP5. I have always considered buying it in cash because you get these extra fees if you pay it over time.

    It was 800 EUR for me. 32 White.
