    What about At&t? Will their preorders start at the same time? There is nothing on their website anymore.

    Also does anyone know whether we can add a line (for the phantom line upgrade) when we preorder through Apple?

    Thanks!

    Pre-Ordering! Yay

    I know Im probably going to sound mean and grouchy, but Ive heard iPhone Pre-orders sell out in the first few hours, and people say the per-ordering starts at 3am?

    Do they stick it in the middle of the night to lighten the server load or do they do it because they are the pricks we know them all to be?

    There aren't enough pre-ordering threads? Thread title has nothing to do with your specific gripe about pre-ordering.

    I guess it depends on when it sell out? When 4S was on pre-order last year, I remember that it was sold out around 11 am. I was able to pre-order it around 7 am. But then it depends on the popularity of the phone so it may sell out quickly, it may not.

    As for the pre-order time. I'm pretty sure it starts at 12:01 AM PST, as it started at 12:01 am last year with the 4S.

    What is the time frame of pre-ordering of getting it the first day?

    If I wait till lets say 8am to pre-order, will the ruin my chances of getting it the first day? Iv read on here that after the first few hours, preorders get sold out. Is that true?
