    I preordered by iphone 5 and it is scheduled for Oct. 5th. Can I get in line on Friday and if I get the iphone from the store, just cancel my preorder? I preordered from Apple and would go to an Apple store.

    Thanks

    I am sure you can. I know a few people here at work who didnt get their pre-orders in on time and are camping out tomorrow night to get it on launch and they still have their pre-orders just in case.

    This will only work if you pre-ordered at full retail price. If you used an upgrade, then that pre-order already took up your upgrade so you wouldn't be able to get it in store at the contract price unless you cancel your pre-order first.

    I'm doing the same thing but my pre-order was at full retail price so it doesn't matter for me.
