    ​Have you tried calling either Apple or your WSP to ask if they'll hold one for you? It's worth a shot.

    Does AT&T reserve new phones?

    No, you cannot reserve an iPhone for in store pickup at an AT&T store. AT&T did allow this with the iPhone 4, however, they changed it with the 4S and were no longer allowing iPhone reserves for in store pick up. It might be good to call your local AT&T store, just to make sure, though.

    Anyone have any experience with buying these at the Sprint store? I took this Friday off and want to have an idea how early I should get in line. I'd be buying a 32 and 64gb in slate gray.

    So far everyone I've talked to wants the 5S, and not the C. I'm willing to be a few days late and get up early (or stay up late) to order online and have it sent to my house.
    Was discussing the new phones with some of my students this morning and majority want the C.

    Interesting. How old are the student? what was their reasoning for wanting the 5c over 5s?

    I don't find that surprising. For a student, the $100 difference is a huge amount. And the fact that there is a choice of colors, that's important to many people.

    I know this may be impossible to answer, but how fast do you think the 5s will sell out online, if it does?

    I plan to order my 5s right at midnight on the 20th and hope to get it early next week.

    Will Apple's servers be swamped and will I be able to successfully order it on Apple's website?

    EDIT: I'm shooting for the 32 GB space gray model.

    Because many people such as me hate contracts. It's cheaper to buy up front then to buy on contract.

    But wouldn't you have to pay a carrier, regardless??

    I agree 100% but few other folks disagreed with this. I think the 5 rebranded as a 5c in colourful plastic body will be a hit between the teens and young adults and even to with some adults who don't care for the latest and the greatest.

    I was hoping the top end would have colours, i would go for a 5c but I already had a 5 so makes sense to go to 5s.

    High school juniors/seniors. It was a group of five and reasons were cost and colors. One girl said her parents were going to get her a 4 (I think she meant 4s) because it was free.

    Earlier the better IMO. You could always call your Sprint store and ask what they'd suggest. Find out what time they open and be prepared to be there well before they open to wait.

    What? for prepaid? Yes of course but it's still cheaper. In my country we have the equivalent of a $15.50 US prepaid plan which gets you 100mins, unlimited texts and 500mb of data.

    But it really isn't free. How can people not understand that?

    In what way? Here in the states, many people refer to the subsidy price when speaking about phone cost. We don't mention the cost of the carrier service per month because that is just assumed. So, in essence, if the iphone 4 did not require any payment up front when signing a 2 year contract, then in that context, yes, it was free. The monthly cost of the contract is implied.
