Woooo! Ryan checking in! I'm at work now, can't wait to get off and relax until the preorder! I'll be joining the iMore community here until we crash the interwebs!
Don't know if anyone covered this yet, but I'm also wondering -- I am preordering and electing "in-store pick-up" and will be at my local Apple Store at about 2:00a-3:00a EST, because I've always wanted to have the iPhone release experience, I'm just preordering so I know I'll have one waiting for me. But if for some reason the servers crash, and I can't get on to preorder, can you actually go to your local Apple Store without preorder and expect to get a phone if I were to go at the time I stated above? I didn't know if they have phones on the shelves or not at Apple or if they're only for preorders.

Hi everyone. I won't be staying up tonight sadly although it does sound like fun. I'm I'm the UK and I believe 12PT is the middle of the night here. If I'm up it will only be cos one of my 2 kids woke me up. Lol. I'm pre-ordering via O2 as soon as its available and I understand I'll be able to actually get my new iPhone on 21st. I'm thinking white as I've always thought the 4S looked really pretty in white. And I've had a black 4 for 2 years. My upgrade was due in August. Will be the first time I've had a brand new iPhone as soon as its come out. I've always had to wait the last 2 times!

I'm going to attempt a preorder through the apple site for an AT&T one but I'm going to need to pay full retail since I don't have an upgrade. Do you think the apple site will allow me to buy at full price? If not, then I'll probably order from the att site. I just would rather pick it up in store at apple rather than have it shipped to my house since I won't be there to accept it.

I have a question. Can I preorder tonight & pick it up at the Apple store on launch day? I've always preordered threw Verizon and had them shipped so I don't known if apple gives an option to pick it up at the store.

Yes. You receive it that day. They usually ship out a few days early in order to get their on launch day. Last time some people were receiving them early because apple tells fed ex to hold them and not deliver them till launch day but a few always slip threw the crack.

Not sure which launch it was, but there was a launch where the option of reserving and picking up the phone in store was unavailable. The only option given was to have the phone shipped. I think it was the 4S launch. Anyone else recall this?
Also, does anyone know if Apple will ship the phone to an address other than (i.e. work, friend's house) what's on record with your carrier/billing address?

Ready for the Drop
So here's my setup: 3 computers set up on apple website with express ordering setup, and also on ATT's website. Got my phone with the apple store app just in case. Chrome autofill settings updated.
Alarm set to 2:45 EST? I heard apple is going online at 3:01, anyone know ATT's plan?
Got anymore advice to ensure preoder?
Goin for the black... love the black sides.

I would love to spend my night here, waiting with you but 12 AM PT is 9 AM in France and it's gonna be just in the middle of my only class of this morning .. There's no way I'll pay attention to my computing lecture xD I'll be to obsessed by my existential question "16GB or 32GB ?" My bank account says me 16GB but my heart says me 32GB x) I'm sure about one thing, it's gonna be a black one !
PS : I apologize for my English >< it's almost midnight and I'm french (yeah I know, that's not an excuse ^^)

Ok so I've never been apart of the whole preorder process. If I preorder I assume I get it on the 21st, but if I wait and try to order in the morning sometime does that just mean I won't receive shipment until 22nd or later or is it normal that Apple runs out of stock?
