    If you are awake like I will be tonight when the pre orders are supposed to go live on Apple's site (along with the carriers) and you want to pass the time, post here!

    We'll have a bunch of iMore writers and forums staff here to chat with, and we'll give away some accessory prizes to people posting in this thread.

    What better way to wait?

    Everyone know which carrier, capacity, and color they're pre-ordering? Sound off, and good luck!

    I've never pre-ordered an iPhone before because i've never had an upgrade available at the time of when the new one comes out, so i am wondering what info i will need for the pre-order so everything can go quickly and smoothly. I am a Verizon customer and i know i will need the billing password and the last 4 digits of my social security but what else will i need besides basic/billing info and a credit card?

    I don't think I'll pre-order. I like lining up too much! But I think I'm going with 64GB blackout on Rogers.

    And I'll be here in my jammies tonight to join in the fun either way!

    I'm just curious if pre-ordering your iPhone 5 tonight guarantees you an iPhone 5 on launch day. If not, I may camp out at my local store. I've never pre-ordered before. What's it like?

    I'm in the same boat as you. I think us Verizon folks might need some insight from you AT&T folks. This is the first time I've been able to upgrade because the iPhone 4 was released when I signed my last 2 year contract. Any insight guys?

    All I had to do when I ordered my 4s was provide a credit/debit card for billing. I didn't need any special information or anything else. I sincerely doubt the way you order has changed in a year.

    More or less... unless the servers crash. Last year it started at 12:01, but there were major issues with Apple and AT&T... most orders didn't get placed until after about 2:00-2:30...

    You beat me to it. Same thing happened when a lot of people tried to update to iOS5. Apple's servers crashed. Same thing will probably happen when iOS6 is available.

    This might be a question for Apple or AT&T...does anyone know if it is possible to pre-order 2 phones on the same account, but with two separate credit cards?

    yes, because you have to do it for each line separately.

    BTW I will be up all night waiting. Getting the 16GB this time since I don't need all the space I used to with the 32gb iPhone 4 thanks to iTunes Match!!! Can't wait!!! oh and going with the Black/Slate on Verizon this time, done with the white!

    Anyone know if ordering thru Verizon guarantees it on launch day or if only Apple's site will?

    I'm always still up at 12pm PST so yeah I'll be preordering right away. If the servers allow me too. Was a mess the past 2 years.

    Do people really have to be the absolute first ones with the new iPhone? I would rather wait and make sure any bugs are worked out of it first

    Did you have issues with your white Iphone? Im not sure which color I want but I heard that wear and tear is more visible on the white one. What do you think??

    You are on an iPhone exclusive website, in the forums of the iPhone 5. Of course we have to be the first ones.

    A black 32gb iPhone 5 on AT&T will be replacing a 3 year old black 16gb iPhone 3GS. I'm west coast so I'll be awake and I got alot of Mt. Dew to keep it that way.

    I have a white iPhone 4S that I've had since launch day. It looks like the day I got it. You'll be fine with white. It will typically show less wear because the fine scratches are impossible to see on the glass with the white. Black is much less forgiving.

    So does this mean we shouldn't be expecting the iPad Mini in October? I know iMore reported an October launch but didn't say it would be announced with the iPhone 5. Looks like Apple may just release it with the new iPad 2 early next year.
