Re: [Poll] iPhone 5: Who's pre-ordering tomorrow?

said by pcdebb:

I hate you all

Yeah, I was going to buy one last night too, but decided to wait for a bit.

It will be nice to hear people's adventures with it, and I will spend some time tuning up my 4 till it's fast again.

Re: [Poll] iPhone 5: Who's pre-ordering tomorrow?

I have an iPhone 4 and I would like to upgrade to the iPhone 5 but I am poor at the moment. Maybe sometime down the road a little bit I will get one.

Nope....not me. I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 and now have my 16GB iPhone 4S for sale.

$50.00 and it's yours. It's still brand-new condition, inside a black OtterBox Defender..:+)

For real? I'll take it if no one else does.

Are you serious? If so, I might be interested.

I hang my head in shame. After I shipped my iPhone 4 to a family member and hit a total of 24 hours without an iPhone, I lost all self control and rushed to order an iPhone 5. I ordered directly from Sprint's site and got a black 64 Gig model. I'll only fill about 1/4th of that now, but I want room to grow. I won't upgrade again until iPhone 7 at the earliest.

I seem to be unable to check my pre-order status at Verizon. I was able to once see the status as "Pre-order received" but usually it says "Please check the information you have entered. Data may be missing or may have entered an invalid Pre-Order Number or Last Name."

I wouldn't be checking routinely except that I got the confirmation email and I just wanted to be sure it actually went through (I do see the $1 holder on my AMEX from VZW) since I am supposed to ship my old iPhones off to Gazelle as soon as I get the new ones.

I'm waiting to buy mine in the ATT store where I can get confirmation that i'll be able to keep my (sort of) unlimited plan. I've read conflicting news articles that ATT buried some fine print that will knock me off the unlimited plan if I preorder online.

I think I will wait and visit the AT&T store as well. With my grandfathered unlimited I pay $5/month for 200 text. I hear it's $20/month for unlimited text only now and I'm not paying it. So I need to be there and take care of this and ask other questions.
May just eliminate text all together which will bring it down to under $60/mo.
I've started switching my daily/weekly text to emails today.

I also need to switch my grandpa unlimited to the new 4g LTE 32g iPad soon.My iPad 1 is struggling.

I forget who it was but in another thread they said they ordered from Apple.com instead of AT&T and got to keep their $5 messaging plan. On AT&T, they made me drop it.

I found that post. I've read that you can do this order on the Apple store and keep you grandpa unlimited but AT&T but if you make a mistake you lose it and won't get it back. Don't see how it can be that confusing.
Don't need to get the phone right away. Maybe wait until someone receive their first bill that shows $5/month text. Then I may try this.

I've been checking my texting record since July and only 3 text from individuals.The remaining 110 or so texts are daily auto text of balances from banks and credit cards and I think I can switch some of them to email only and still take a quick look from notifications or reschedule the text alerts to once per week I believe. Texting would cost me around $20/year instead of $20/month. Actually this is best for me and not pay a monthly texting fee at all.
Any out of country texting i do is free with an app. Any serious texting in the US I will just use this.

I'm going to check it out. Doing the math to see if no text plan is cheaper than the $5/month in my situation.

My 4S order from att.com was supposed to arrive on launch day (and they typically do), but FedEx screwed up my delivery (they basically just gave up trying to move all the iPhones around so quickly). So barring any shipping delays, you'll get it the 21st.

Should be delivered on 9/21.

But I'm having doubts about mine now. I ordered through Premiere (can't order through regular), and some are saying that Premiere customers are being put to the back of the line.

Premiere in Russian means stand in (the back of) line.

I ended up ordering mine via Apple dot com and it (supposedly) let me keep my grandpa unlimited plan. But since I don't have a current txt plan, I had to choose the pay per txt "plan". It was that or the $20 unlimited txt plan. Fugg dat. If you're not using iMessage, just call me.

If iPhone history repeats, they will ship before the 21st...provide an arrival date earlier than the 21st...arrive at holding areas where your shipping status will change back to the 21st and then show up on your doorstep Friday in the afternoon...since they will be slammed with iPhone deliveries.

Wahoo! I had a hunch that if I'd waited until midnight and checked my order at Apple that I would get a status change. My 5 is in Anchorage!

Edit: check that--mine left AK and is on its way to Louisville. That's where my girlfriend's is now.
