    Ordered mine at 2:09AM CST. Got my confirmation e-mail a few minutes later. My first pre-order. Love the rush.

    I have grandfathered unlimited data with Verizon... Verizon's Ordering Process (paying full retail) wont let me keep it. Should I go ahead now and fix it later?
    It let me keep it paying full retail price. The unlimited data was checked already when I ordered it.

    I was planning on buying it outright so that I could keep my current plan; however, through the Apple Store app, I was given the option of paying $449 and keeping my plan. I was surprised.

    My order status has changed to "Processing Items" and my card has already been charged. It arrives on the 21st.

    I just checked the Apple Online Store and the AT&T Online Store and both of them are up and taking orders. Maybe the mad rush slowing down, or else they're finally getting their act together with the web servers...

    Ordered a 32GB Black iPhone 5 through VZW...gave up my unlimited data, but the last six months I have averaged 800mb of data usage, so I'm not too worried about it.

    I actually set it up by getting a call from VZ. They called me at 10:15 or so Eastern. Ordered. Delivery date the 21st. I guess waiting until a normal hour worked for me! I am also calling her back to switch the line and activate when I get it to keep the unlimited on my line but of course not the line it trasnferred from, so to say, anyway, I got it covered.

    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.
    I had the same problem! I spent over an hour trying to get through both the Apple and the Sprint site. I finally got through at Apple and when I was trying to check out it told me that I had to do a deposit in the store and wouldn't let me buy it. I was soo mad! I had to spend another 30 minutes before everything went through on the Sprint site.

    Is there any way to get a shipping estimate from AT&T without actually placing the order? I can't see it anywhere.

    Edit: Reading online it's now 14-21 days for AT&T. Kind of shady they don't tell you that before you commit to ordering. Don't know why I'd expect anything more from them.

    Guess I'll be standing in line!

    I set the alarm on my 4S to wake me up, but it didn't go off (and it wasn't set on silent and the ringer was on full), but I happened to wake up at 3:30 am CST. I'm on the "ship in two weeks" group to deliver on October 2nd. I guess that my 4S is jealous and doesn't want to leave me.

    Tech gadgets often misbehave when they sense that they are being replaced. And somehow, they always know.

    Just got off the phone with the customer service rep for businesses at Rogers and ordered my 32GB iPhone5. Can't wait to get this because my works biggest supplier is taking us to palm springs for a week long meeting and this will be great to have with the nightly shenanigans.

    Tried to pre order at best buy store. Would have to return the phone I'm using now since I'm within my 30 days just to pre order. I can't go without a phone for a week or more, so I might have to take my chances on the 21st with walking in and trying to get one at launch.

    So I ordered my iPhone 5 last night on Verizon Wireless website I got my confirmation email saying I would get everything shipped to me by the 21st so that was good, but the only problem is that nothing has been charged to my debit card yet. I normally get a text from Chase for large dollar amount purchases right after a transaction but got nothing. So I checked my account and no transaction has happened yet from them.

    Anyone else order thru VZW's website and not get charged yet or know when we're gonna get charged?
