    Apparently the 5S will not be on preorder - online orders begin general release day - Sep. 20th.

    I might wait, but then again, I'm off on that day...

    I don't get off work until 7:00AM on the 20th. Not exactly the best time to get in line for an iPhone release. I'll probably just order online or in app that morning and be as patient as possible.

    Planning a 4 am trip to my local store here in Long Island. I think that should be more than sufficient to get me in by 9 am.

    I'm not eligible until October 3rd, so it's all good for me.

    My 5 is only a few months old, so I'm out.

    This has officially made me grumpy.

    Unfair to those that can't camp out. :-(

    My 4S is closing in on two years so I'm definitely in. I'm already planning my spiel for the boss to let me off a few hours early. With this this much notice I bet he'll let me slip out in time to get in line by 4AM. If it pans out this will be my first iDay waiting in line.

    This is going to cause one hell of a backup at the stores. It should have been the other way around, no preorder for the 5C and preorder for the 5S.

    Because you bought an HTC?

    Last phone I bought was my 5, and it says I "may" have full upgrade on 9/13.

    It'll be like the "old days" when we all had to wait in line if we wanted the new iPhone. You'll get to actually talk to people you've never met before one-on-one. It can actually be a pretty cool experience if you're an outgoing, gregarious sort.

    I doubt it was a strategic decision. I think it was due to production being behind.

    I will just order online. My time is worth more than waiting in line.

    Well that's weird. If the last time you upgraded was for the 5, I'd think your upgrade date should be sooner.

    I'm in the same boat. I bought a 5 in October. AT&T says Sept. 2014 for full and doesn't mention partial. Apple.com (with AT&T acct. info) said Oct. 25th for partial last time I checked a couple weeks ago. That was for a 5 since the 5S wasn't listed yet.

    Oh, you didn't get your 5 on release day?

    We both got Verizon phones on launch day, but then decided to return them later and stick with AT&T. I had to wait a couple weeks for my AT&T 5 since they were backordered. He walked in and got a 64 GB that was in stock.
