    Couple of days after tomorrow? :confused: What time does it usually go up as well? Going to try my luck on pre-ordering online. :p

    Probably tomorrow after the event, if I had to take a guess.

    Pre-orders usually go up about a week after an event, if not longer. The sooner the better.

    I'd say one to two weeks after tomorrow we will be able to pre-order.

    If I recall, you can pre-order starting at 12 midnight Eastern, but I might have that wrong.

    We don't know. It hasn't been announced. Pre-orders aren't guaranteed - after the crisis with the iPhone 4 last year, expecting to be able to pre-order is probably the wrong idea. We didn't get to pre-order for iPad 2.

    We obviously don't know.

    You can't expect people from MacRumors to be future-tellers, or to even have any inside information. Don't ask when we obviously don't know. We'll all find out tomorrow.

    EDIT: By the way, no. You weren't asking about past years; you were clearly asking about this year. Read your post again, and maybe be more clear next time.

    Relax dude. I can ask this question if I want to. If you don't feel like answering, by all means, don't bother clicking on this thread.

    This is not the first time a new iPhone has been announced. I was simply asking when pre-orders have gotten up from the past years.

    Local ATT manager said probably no preorders this time.

    I think you may be right. Last year's launch was a mess. I'm really hoping you're wrong though; otherwise I'm going to have to wait in line days before the launch. Ergh!

    In the past pre-ordering started at 12 Pacific since Cupertino's in California.

    Why don't people just go to a not to well known AT&T store? :p If anything I'm planning on doing that, even though I'm in New York.

    I did just that last year, when there were pre-orders. By store opening there were still over a hundred people behind me in line.

    yeah last year was a disaster. It took me an hour and a half to get through (via apple.com) and I considered myself lucky. I remember coming on to macrumors and seeing the endless threads about it. Actually, it was a poster here who stumbled across a glitch that required you to hit the "back" button and after I read his post then I was able to do the pre-order.

    I hope there is a pre-order this year, but if they choose not to I won't blame them.

    Pre-orders are live now!

    C'mon, nobody knows when or if pre-orders will be allowed. Remember iPad 2, no pre-orders or reserves.

    Pre-orders went up when the sent out invites for the event. If you can't access the page, you're SOL.

    Pre-order and have shipped?

    The last iphone I bought, the 3Gs, I pre-ordered from ATT and had it shipped to my house. Thus avoiding waiting in line. The phone arrived on release day. With all the conversation about pre ordering and waiting in line I'm wondering if we will be able to have it shipped as I did before? This is what I intend to do. I activated it on itunes. Anyone planning to use this option, if we still have this option?

    If I can't pre-order, I'm going to wait a few weeks/months.

    I have a rampant case of consumerism, but the moment I have to line up for a product I feel to embarassed of myself. If I can pre-order, hand over my cash in advance, and have the product delivered....I'm down.

    The world is too ****ed to spend 6 hours in line for a phone....that being said, I waited 2 hrs for an iPad 2 in March.

    iPad2 Pre-Orders -SPREADING FALSE INFORMATION



    slippery-Pete: You state, "remember iPad2, no Pre-orders or reserves". Please stop spreading false info. I preordered my iPad2 on the APPLE STORE on 11 March 2011 and received it on 13 April 2011. You don't have a clue. People rely on this site for help from others. You're not helping pal. Do a little research.
