Ordered my white 32g iphone 5 from AT&T this morning at 6:45. I was done in 5 minutes. I have received my confirmation of my order. Shipping over night w/ receiving date of Sept. 21st!
This is my first iphone that I have ever had and first time to ever pre order a phone. I was scarred to death that servers would be down or other problems happending. All is good. Have a great weekend!

I stayed up for the iMore Pajama Party and I have to say it was a blast! Thanks to the iMore crew for hangin' with us, giving away cool prizes, and passing out 'virtual No-Doze'
At 2:01 AM Central time I tried to order my iPhone, but the web sites were still down. Folks were reporting luck with the App Store App, so I quickly downloaded and installed it on my iPhone 4. I logged in immediately and tried to order the new iPhone. I got part way through the order process and got an error. Tried 2 more times and finally got through. In all, the whole process took 20 minutes.
I'm now the proud owner of a 32GB White/Silver iPhone 5 (AT&T) with delivery confirmed for 9/21. Lookin' forward to it!

I ordered from Verizon about 7:45 central. I thought about ordering from Apple, but the ships in 2 weeks scared me off. Last year the 4s was delivered to my house, they wouldn't give me an option to ship to my office, and it didn't show up until 6:45 pm. Today online I was able to select shipped to the office, so hopefully it shows up earlier!

Had AT&T and Apple websites open at midnight... with AT&T I actually got to adding my iPhone 5 to my cart and then it crashed. Apple.com never came up for me. Went to my iP4S and using the Apple Store App had my iP5 64gb black ordered and paid for within a minute. If I remember correctly this is exactly what I did when the iP4S was released last year. You would think AT&T would learn, and I assume Apple.com just didn't go live right at 12:01...

Waited until 1AM Local time, got through to the apple site around 1:15.
Was told that I may have to do a credit deposit, which is frustrating, because I didn't have to do it for the 4S or any other phone that I have gotten. (I also have exceptional credit score, why this would come up is beyond me)
So I had to wait for the At&t site to go up. As soon as the phones went to two weeks on the Apple website I just went to bed. I still hadn't pre ordered a phone.
Woke up 4 hours later and just finished my pre order about 20 minutes ago. At&t asked me nothing about credit deposits or anything like that. The pre order went smooth as silk.
I'm pretty frustrated as to why this happened on Apples site. I lost my chance to get the phone from day 1. My only other option would be to wait in line and considering I work on Fridays that isn't an option. Whatever. I'm going back to bed.
Got a 32GB Black.
