    Hey guys I am a non-smartphone user as of right now for VZW, My family and I are thinking of getting the family share data plan. Does my family and I need to get that plan first before pre-ordering?
    No, you can do it at time of ordering.

    Does ordering from apple.com let you add applecare +?

    I will probably set a quick alarm to wake up. I am only preordering if an unlocked version is available. I am hoping one is but I doubt it. If it is anything like the 4 and 4S, the unlocked came at least a month later. Black 16GB for me. 32 is tempting me though...

    So I've never pre-ordered before. Can someone tell me if I need any other information other than my Sprint account's PIN password and my mobile number? I'm asking as I'm going to try to pre-order as soon as possible but I share an account with my parents and don't know the username and actual pw to get into the account. Does anyone know if I would need this information? Just wanna be prepared as they will not be awake at 2AM.

    You will definitely need to have the username and password if you are going to order through Sprint website.

    Going through Apple, I think they ask for Mobilenumber, Zip code, Last four Social and billing password if you have any (to determine your eligibility and to pull up your previous plan details) and you should be good to go.

    I was thinking I'd just go through apple's site. Thanks! I'll just have her write all the information before bedtime.

    no unlocked version up for pre-order, you could buy your respective carrier's version full price and afterwards ask for an unlock which they should do since it was purchased unsubsidized

    paying FULL RETAIL to replace my 4s with the 5 on vzw, 16gb black. That new darker aluminum is sexy!

    will both apple and vzw offer preorder at full retail, or should i focus my efforts on one site over the other??

    I am upgrading from an iPhone 4 with 16 gb. I know that the camera on the iPhone 5 is much nicer than the 4. Will I need a 32 gb iPhone because of the larger size of pictures and videos? I currently have 8 gb free on my iPhone 4.

    i dont think so. i have 16gb 4s and nowhere near full, but i dont store much music. but all the pics go to photostream and down to iphoto (if you have mac), so you can easily clean out ur phone if you need and not lose your photos!

    depends, if you plan to shoot a lot of 1080p video and photos then yes but if you dont see yourself doing that or you use cloud storage then no

    I'm hearing both will honor full price preorders. So it's all preference. I'll have both sites up for good measure.
