Probably because 2 year contracts, and they don't feel like selling their phone because the trend is that the iPhone 5 isn't that big of an upgrade. Which I don't agree with! As for why I'm not getting the iPhone 5 is because my contract started a few months ago T-T (but luckily I have a yearly contract), and I don't want to sell my 4s because I have this problem where I like to hoard all past phones. -_-

Um...that's not necessarily true. I know that at least AT&T doesn't update their order status like Apple does. Every year people that get up in the AM and have order confirmations from AT&T post here complaining that they didn't get their phone on iDay. Most that ordered in the AM would presumably NOT get their phone next Friday.

Maybe Apple was just more prepared this year. I don't mind waking up early, and was plesantly surprised that the ordering process when so smoothly.

It literally took me 5 minutes to log on to Verizon at 3am and order it. I than went back to sleep. No harm no foul and I guarantee myself a phone.
