    My friend is buying it and has never bought a iPhone on launch day. I know you have to order early but how early? Thanks.

    from 4- 4S upgrade and 4S-5 upgrade, I usually just stay up until midnight and keep clicking refresh, I think 4- 4S I stayed up until almost 2-3ish and was able to reserve one, 24 hours later Apple sent me an email that I have my phone reserved and had to make a payment.
    4S-5 was much smoother IMO.

    This year however, I am gonna go wait in line...being in Vegas I think I'm ok if I leave 4 in the morning.

    no, 12pm PST, but the thing is apple website usually lags so much around opening time it was impossible to even get into the online store page.

    IIRC when I ordered my 4s I clicked back and forth between apple and Verizon. Took 10 min.

    I didn't go to ATT website at all, I wanted it through apple although it would have made no difference anyway.
    If you got within 10min, you were lucky ones, because the server crashed very fast and so you either got it within minutes or you waited for hours.
