    Usually I always buy directly from Apple/AT&T for the last 5yrs, but 2rs ago i switched to Verizon. This year I am switching back to AT&T. Instead of plunking down $1000 out of my own pocket for the 4 iphones, I am thinking of just charging them onto my BB card. In the end I will break even or close to breaking even as I have two 64GB iphone 5's that I am going to be selling afterwards.

    When preorders go live at 3:00am EST time, does BB usually star theirs at the same time? I never checked.

    Thanks!

    Best buy is in-store and they usually start the same day but when their stores open.

    Don't mean to be rude, but why don't you just google it and do a little bit of research?

    Wow what?
    You're asking when preorders will be available for an item that doesn't exist?
    Let me call up Theresa Caputo and I'll give you some dates and times:D

    I'm going to take the respectful route here instead of what you posted. My suggestion actually works because all you had to do was search 2012 preorders for Best Buy, see when the iPhone 5 was announced and do some simple math.

    I would advise you to run from best buy preorder process if you want your phone within the first 2 weeks of the launch date. Last year I waited over 17 days for 2 iPhone 5's I preordered on day one and was the 2nd person in my stores per order line.

    Imagine my disgust when my phones were not in on launch day when I got the store but all the stores reps were walking around with same model I had ordered. I ended up getting the white color on the 17th day until they received the black color on day 33. The exchange was approved by the BB corporate office

    Here are some thread regarding other customer experiences like mine
