    What's the best method for Pre-ordering a 4S?
    ATT web site, Apple web site...?

    Apple web site. Shipped to your door for free on launch day (perhaps earlier), punctual updates, excellent customer service. Why mess with a middle man?

    I just checked the e-mailed order acknowledgements from the past three years and they ranged between 4:30 a.m. - 9:30 CST. The 9:30 time I remember I was waiting and waiting for the email acknowledgement worrying that my order didn't go through so I placed the order earlier than that. I'm not sure what time pre-orders start but I've had better luck on AT&T than on Apple for some reason the past two years. I feel better going to the store to pick it up anyway. I always have to move my "old" iPhone over to my son's phone number and then put the new iPhone on my number. I feel better when AT&T does that switcheroo in person instead of me trying to do it online. Plus, I still get to stand in a (much shorter) line on launch day which for me is part of the fun of it all.

    So if I already have my existing iPhone 4 with ATT and qualify for an upgrade, can I upgrade through the Apple site or do I have to go directly through ATT site?

    Tom,

    Either way works for a person to do..Some people here on EIC prefer through Apple cause it's the best way to do so.

    You will get the same discount through the Apple store as you would with AT&T.

    Hi Everyone !
    I will be ordering mine (Black 64GB) through Apple. My question is whether to order it online or 1-800-MY-APPLE ? Which method would in your opinion be faster and less hassle ? Thanks in advance. Cheers !
