Orders for the 16th deleivery will go until they run out of their immediate stock. Then orders will slip a week of so.

After about 100 tries mine finally got through.

Do NOT give up as it will go sooner or later.

I won't be able to order it until 6PM Central and I'm frekaing out.
if the iPhone 4s preorder was any indication the cut off was at night like 6 or 7?? central time. The iPhone Preorders started at 2AM so I am guessing you will make it in time :). But if you have an iPhone why not use the apple store app to pre-order?

I'm scares that it'll be a nightmare like the 4S. I don't want to be charged 3 times using that app or one not go through. You know?

Download the Apple store app on your iPhone and order away, if you can...

Or, have a friend or family member order it for you perhaps ?

Lastly, don't freak out over an electronic gadget!! You WILL get one! It's really not the end of the world!!

Yes, I ordered soon after the online store came back up with a lot of waiting and issues and they recieved my order twice. It was a pretty painless proccess to cancel one of them.

That's a pretty quick cutoff!

I hammered Apple's site from around 12:30pm to 1pm PST and was finally able to get an order through.

When I tried the pre order thingy, it charged me 3 times, and I had to start over. Glad that it did not go through. The site is slow and many Ooops pages that I had to back out of and start again, but it did finally work. Wish there was a better way. Tried the calling method as well, and the recorded voice told me, that it could not go through because of the volume and try another time.

Took me a while too, got the OOPS page a few times too. Got it one time after I had put in credit card info and all.

Then got it done, took about 5 tries total.

But will still feel better once I see a confirmation email.
