    In the past we've had "pajama parties" for when pre-ordering started, and I guess there was one for the 5c, but of course we have to wait until tomorrow to order the 5s. Since online ordering starts at midnight Apple Daylight Time, is anybody going to be here waiting to order an iPhone?

    :Our options this year seem to be:

    • ​be the first to order online and hope you get a good delivery date
    • wait all night outside an Apple store and hope they don't run out
    • wait until the demand dies down


    Who else is planning to be here tomorrow when ordering starts? Which one are you getting? There's now less than 24 hours to go!

    I plan on waking up at 2:50am to order the phone online (going to see if I can do apple instore pick up or just have VZW ship it to me) then I will go to the store after around 4am. Since I`m paying full retail I`m buying the device only online as if it were an acessory so it wont lock up my line. Worst case I will return the shipped phone if I cant do instore pick up at apple.

    I will "line up" at my MBP and do the online order... I’m in the same time zone as California, and I’m usually still up at midnight, so no real impact to me... and for the record, I am already first in line at my MBP... UPS or FedEx will come to my house and hand me my phone one day next week. Life is good.

    I'll take a short nap and have my alarm set for 2:45am in time to place my order for the Unlocked 5S. If it doesn't go through I'll head over to my local AT&T store and try to get one from them even though it won't be unlocked. Either way I can wait if need be. My iPhone 5 is running great on iOS 7.

    I'm pretty sure you can't pay cash if you order online. I also don't expect in-store pickup, but I hope I'm wrong. I would have done that before, if possible. However, if you don't order online, you can pay cash in the store. If you have a good spot in line, that's your best bet.

    Save me a spot. Lol I won't be able to get there until around 5am. I hope the line isn't that long when I get there.

    I'll be waking up before 3am in hopes of getting in for a good delivery date. If not, I'll be swinging into Walmart on my way into work (they open at 7am) to try my luck. If that falls through, I'll be stuck waiting til 11:45 to go to my local VZW locations.

    Confirmed with my Verizon store guy they they got in 4 64GB models. The rest are mostly 16GB and a handful of 32s. Guess I will show up around 4am and see how it goes.

    64gb typically dont sell, and the only reason 32gb sell out is when people get desperate lol

    True but when you are talking 3-5...that doesn't take long to go. My fear is that I walk in at 8:00 and the 3-5 others like me already came through.

    I'm hoping to order online with in-store pickup. Still haven't decided if I should take my chances though if in-store pickup isn't available to go to the local Apple store or just order and wait for it to be delivered.

    Getting 32 GB Space Gray right at midnight online at the Apple store website. Most likely choosing the fastest shipping possible, if there's other delivery options of course, and if it's not outrageously expensive.

    I wonder if Apple, or Verizon, has offered next day shipping in the past....for the extra fee. I would gladly order at midnight, pay the extra cost, and receive it Saturday. Then again, I am not sure what carriers even still deliver on Saturdays anymore...

    I don’t think we’ve "been here" before. Typically, pre-order is a week before launch day, so next day/2 day shipping was moot. On purchases from Apple well after launch day, you can get 2 day shipping on some items free and for extra cost for others... we be in new territory here...
