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.

Thanks for the tip, I didn’t know about the favorites.

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

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
