    Does anyone know if Apple will do EIP through T-Mobile's jump program on their pre-order website tonight? I really don't want to order through T-Mobile.

    Thanks

    well, they didn't last year, and you can't now with the 5s or 5c, so methinks not.

    It's not even an option currently on their site.

    We won't know apparently until Pre-Order page goes live.

    No you have to go through T-Mobile. Apple only sells T-Mobile at full retail price.

    Call mobile they told me I could and there will be an option to do so. I talked to two people and they both said yes I can.

    One also told me what time they are going to start their preorders.

    no. what he and i mean to say is that if the apple online store right now won't let you buy a 5s/5c with an eip, it's unlikely that you'll be able to with a 6/6+, preorder or not.

    So I called T-Mobile....They said I have to order it through their website but the shipping is going to be the same as Apple's.

    sounds about right. keep in mind the differences between ordering through t-mobile vs ordering from apple directly. apple doesn't charge a restocking fee on returns, and phones purchased through t-mobile come locked to the carrier (can be unlocked once the eip is paid off).

    Yeah there's no problem it being locked to T-Mobile. I'll also probably ordering through Apple but most likely T-Mobile instead.

    Hopefully the T-Mobile site sees a lot less traffic than apple.

    I agree, hopefully T-Mobile's website functions well too. I don't want to lose my pre-order!
