    What's up everyone! It's that time of year again! Who's preordering through Apple? This is going to be the first time I'm going to do this as I normally wait in line on launch day but don't have the time for all that this year.

    Hey, Cj. Good to see you!

    I will be pre-ordering through Apple. I greatly prefer it over waiting in line. We usually have quite a crowd here on pre-order night. Did you do Next, Edge or get a two-year contract last year and are you all set with eligibility?

    Well, this will be the first time I won't be setting an alarm to get up at 3am. Having a newborn FTW! And who am i kidding, I'll still be setting my alarm.

    This will be the first year I pre-order. Also going to give the iPhone Upgrade Program a try. I am tired of carrying a second number that I've literally (yes literally ;)) never made a call on, just so I can get a new phone every year.

    I'll be preordering this year as well. I've done both, wait in line and preorder. Waiting for ups to show up with my phone on launch day is way more exciting for me. I would only preorder from apple! I have seen some horror stories over the years with ordering from carriers.

    I am with the Verizon Edge program and just paid off my phone completely. I think I will try getting the 6 plus S through apple and see how my experience goes for the first year, upgrading to the 7 etc

    Be careful. I did that last year and I was up earlier with my daughter but then I fell asleep on the couch and woke up 15 minutes late and didn't get one on release day and I ended up waiting in line at Best Buy. I would still set an alarm. :)

    Breaking into a nervous sweat, increased heart rate, and general anxiety until your order is confirmed with a launch day delivery date. :confused::cautious::eek:

    Then, when you get confirmation, expect to do a victory dance (including fist pumps) like when your favorite team wins the World Cup, World Series, or Superbowl, etc. :D:cool::p:):ROFLMAO::laugh2:

    Just curious, when I go through the motions of purchasing an iPhone through Apple, I don't see any option of buying it at the subsidized price with a two year contract (via AT&T). I'm eligible (according to the AT&T site) but not Apple. Anyone else see this?

    You can't pre-order with an AT&T contract through Apple this year. You'll need to pre-order through AT&T if you want to get a contract. You can do Bext or Apple's upgrade program through Apple.

    I always enjoy seeing the UPS truck pull up, watching the driver get out and unroll the red carpet up to my front door, and seeing him genuflect as he hands me my new iPhone.

    It's important to enjoy the little things.

    Except when you're in Utah and they treat you like a peasant and let your phone sit in the back of the truck until 9:27 P.M. :D

    That little factoid wasn't supposed to come out!

    Anyway, I'm on my home turf this year. They will comply.
