    Have any US carriers (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint) said anything about the 5S going on sale? Will we be able to order from the carrier website or is it only available in-store?

    You don't need to hear anything from the carriers.

    Apple said it was going on sale Sept 20th.

    You can pre-order on the 13th from Apple or the carriers website.

    Verizon is advertising the 5C, but not the 5S.

    In case you haven't heard, the 5S is not available for preorder. OP is asking about the 5S, not the 5C.

    Edit: It appears AT&T is also only advertising the 5C at this time. Clearly Apple and carriers are focused on the 5C much more than the 5S since the 5C will bring in more profit. In a marketing standpoint is a good thing, but overall its like they are ignoring the 5S. Why ignore your flagship product?

    You are correct-- Apple said it was going on sale on the 20th. But it has not clarified if that only means in Apple brick-and-mortar stores and the Apple site or if that includes carrier brick-and-mortar stores and the carrier sites.


    Thanks for the reply. Where have you seen Verizon and AT&T advertising the 5C?

    After viewing all 4 carrier sites, they all have the 5C prominently advertised with the same ad...maybe this is on Apple? Apple is so confusing this year...:confused:

    The conference clearly states the iPhone 5S will go on sale the 20th at apple stores online and carrier stores

    I called AT&T this afternoon and I also just got a rep on live chat and asked about preorders for the 5S....they both said that only the 5C is going to be able to be preordered.

    Can't say that it DOESN'T piss me off:mad:

    Why would Apple do this??
