    So, I've always braved the lines for the new iPhones but this year I think I want to just preorder. Do the phones go on sale at midnight? Are they shipped to arrive on iDay or do the ship dates often slip. Any feedback would be appreciated. :)

    I usually preorder at midnight, I have not had a problem so far. Good luck :)

    Yes whatever your time zone is. I will wake up and check the sites, apple or what ever your provider is. I have AT&T but Apple seems more reliable and faster. Thanks

    As long as they list a delay in shipping, you'll get your iPhone on launch day. The only x-factor is your delivery guy.

    I would recommend logging into Apple store at 12 midnight sharp. In the past during popular releases such as the iPhone 4 their server has crashed, and many were not able to order for several days.

    You beat me to the punch. I believe you are absolutely correct.

    Oh, hush. I'm sure that Apple will have their preorders running as smoothly as today's live feed.

    Give them a break it's not like they are a tech company.

    Never had a problem with mine and I've ordered every iPhone with delivery since the 4.

    I'm on a college campus so I worry, and I especially tell the warehouse to hold it for me and not have it sent to mail room.

    Gotcha. That would probably be prudent. I graduated in 2001 so cell phones weren't exactly everywhere when I was on campus.

    Pre-ordering is a fine idea. You get the phone the day it's released. Easy peasy.
