gah and now I still have to wait until friday to preorder and THEN wait until next friday to get the phone. *sigh* i've made it this long I can handle another week.
That was me last year. I happened to be off that day and at home. I'd tracked the shipping and knew it was on the truck to be delivered and it didn't come until 5:30 pm, mine was the last off the truck! Torture lol but you'll make it.
It's just a pre-order. The phones aren't actually out yet. I think the phones are "available" September 21, but I think that if they're available to stores the preorders will be available as well. Wouldn't make sense otherwise except that a preorder guarantees you a phone.
They definitely did not sell out in the first hour - at least not at my AT&T. I waited until after work to go to the store and put in the preorder because I wanted to keep our current plan (we have the old unlimited data plan)
When I got my iPhone 4S, it was the most exciting thing to happen to me that month! I've now had it since January now and I take SOOOO much care of it because of how much money we have actaully spent on it! Its my baby and my most prized posession after my horses of course ;) It took alot of reasoning with mum to get (im only 16 so can't get one myself on a plan) and since getting mine she now has one as well! Opening it from the box was so exciting haha! I won't throw the box out because it looks cool ;)
I don't think I want the iPhone 5. Personally I don't like the look of them!
