    Verizon is doing pre-orders!

    They start at 12AM (midnight) of your timezone on the 14th.

    You will be able to order either via a subsidy or full price, to be delivered on the 21st.

    I didn't ask sorry, I'm sure its reasonable shipping if you have to pay. The clear point to be made here is that Apple will not let you pre-order a full price phone tomorrow night, so I'm relying on my carrier for this.

    Midnight in our timezone? That means orders for some timezones will be open before they're open on apple.com…this doesn't sound very accurate.

    Though, I won't complain if it's true. Midnight is better than 2am and I'd rather get my phone earlier, even if it's very unlikely that they would start preorders early on VZW.com

    How do you know Apple will not let you order a full price phone tomorrow?

    So that means the east coast peeps will be first? Poor Hawaii.

    It would not be in our time zone, it would be in PST.

    I have never seen verizon charge for upgrade shipping. Always got free next business day.

    I didn't think it was accurate either, but two different phone operators said the same thing. Verizon's pre-orders open at midnight in whatever timezone you are in.

    Cool, thanks!

    I agree with this. That is how it was last year with the 4S although apple.com didn't come up until about 12:45 AM PST. Thankfully, I am on the west coast.

    Call *611 and ask, the two reps seemed very knowledgeable. Verizon has their ducks in a row.

    ----------

    Spoke with Verizon rep(s) over the phone.

    Would love to see them allow preorder on the web and pick up in your local store on the 21st. Seems our house is at the very end of the route, the important stuff never shows up until dinner time or later.

    That's unfortunate, perhaps after you pre-order you could place a call and see if you can have it switched to a pickup internally?

    My existing contract with verizon is not up until June of 2013. I have an existing unlimited data plan, grandfathered in.

    I have read that verizon will allow you to buy a iPhone5 at full price, to keep the grandfathered plan. Even though I am under contract until then, will I be able to buy an iPhone5 on Friday for the $649 full price?

    Thanks

    Well I'll keep my fingers crossed and pull up my account at midnight in my timezone just in case.

    I just called Apple and in my case I have Verizon, under contract, eligible for a discount in February and Apple said I will be able to order the iPhone 5 at full price at 12:01am Friday morning.

    Hmm, conflicting information. 3 different apple reps told me differently.

    Any way I can use a friends subsidized upgrade and just have him send me the phone to activate on my account?
