    I called them today and all they ask for is a $15 deposit, but you have to go in store to order and pick it up. I was thinking of going through them since I figured I could just put the whole balance on my best buy card, but they don't let you pay all up front rather you pay the remainder when you pick it up.

    Any thoughts?

    I was able to Pre-order at BestBuy but that "hold" amount was $50. They put it on a gift card. I used my BestBuy card. The Mobile Tech said that I should be able to pick it up next weekend but they would email me when it arrives.

    ok, have you tried best buy in the past?

    Also, I guess someone needs to teach the girl who was on the other end of the line to enunciate.

    I am not certain I believe last year people got mixed results with BestBuy

    I'm not going to preorder(AT&T contract doesn't end til oct 25, switching to Verizon) but I am def going with bestbuy to get my 5. As of today(not sure if it will go down once 5's are in stores) my iPhone 4 16gig is worth $200 in gift cards... No brainier on upgrading though them(or changing carriers I should say)

    Got an email earlier today from BestBuy stating that my pre-order would be available tomorrow. When I got my 4 they put me on a wait list but it only took a couple of weeks before they had one available.
