    I will be ordering online on the 15th and am curious what has history shown as a time of night or morning that they have started taking pre-order in the past?

    I worry that if I make my order late in the day that I will be at the end of the list and may not get mine on day1. Is this possible to get mine after thousand of others have already pre-ordered and mine be pushed back a day or two so the early orders are filled first?

    Just want to prepare and be online ready to place my order at whatever time of night it may possibly be.

    Thanks for any info you can provide. Obviously there is no way of knowing but this is the 4th iPhone so 3 others in the past may give us an idea on when to be ready. :)

    I wouldn't even worry about it. Last year I ordered my 3GS a day or two after they started accepting pre-orders. My phone still got delivered on the release date.

    Honestly, I would probably wait until after the initial rush to order. Odds are, the servers will be slow/crash from too many people trying to order at one time.

    5:03am Tuesday morning.....



























    Well to tell you the truth, no one knows. Apple has been sporadic on every preorder they’ve released. Good luck finding out though!

    Ya but the pre-rders for this iPhone will be WAY WAY hotter than the 3GS .... as we all know the 3GS wasnt that hot of a phone and for alot of people wasnt a worthy upgrade... this one on the other hand is so comparing anything to the 3GS release is not the same at all. Now comparing it to the 3g release now were in the same ballpark.

    No news yet on this issue.

    Sign up for notifications from Apple via their website. I am sure they will reveal it within the next few days.

    Not that hot of a phone? They sold a million of them in 3 days.

    iPad preorders were live at 7am central time and we had at least a day or two notice, maybe a week can't remember that part for sure.

    This is the most recent info I have to go by, but like others have said they should announce it soon and if you hang around here you will know early enough.
