So I've been a Mac user since the early tan Macintosh desktop days, own a Macbook and a brand new Macbook Air, but I've never ventured into the world of iPhone. I'm hoping to change that with the iPhone 5. But I'm unclear how this pre-order situation works. Basically, does Apple announce the product, your carrier opens it up for pre-orders, and then you just go online and order it on you carrier's website? Is it first come first serve, so like if you call Verizon at 8AM on the day it releases you're likely to get it earlier?? Appreciate any insight!
