    Is it better to place your order with Apple or with your cellular provider? My AT&T rep said it’s easier to place the order with them because too many would be on the Apple site.

    I've had great luck using the Apple store app. It usually goes online a bit earlier than the regular Apple web site. Personally, I much prefer ordering from Apple than from AT&T, but your mileage may vary.

    Get the app, start placing your order now (of course, you won't be able complete it), but when you've gone as far as you can go, save the order as a favorite. When preorder time comes, just recall the favorite and go from there.

    I always use the App too..., I get everything set up before hand. So I can wake up and hit order. The app hasn't let me down yet

    That's exactly what I did a few weeks ago. The app is much easier and quicker to order from.

    As long as you all order at 3:00 am Eastern on the 28th, I should be good.

    Mindi is coming out to visit in late November. I hope we both have our new X models by then.

    I've got a lot of time on my hands now. I'd like to get together with you for a beer or two.

    Cool. I'll have a sweet tea or a Diet Coke.

    I went through the Verizon web site. It opened up about 5-6 minutes early and I was ordered and secured Silver 256 for Friday 11/3
