How to Pre-order the iPhone 4S

Preordering starts at 12:01 EST on Friday, October 7th which guarantees delivery on October 14th. While you can also preorder through AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint - I highly suggest ordering through Last year there were massive issues with AT&T's website including canceled orders, lost orders, and security issues.

By opening preorders at midnight they are effectively telling us that they expect massive demand.  (Less people will be ordering at that time then say 7am.)  While I don't think it absolutely mandatory that you wake up in the middle of the night - I would do it before 8am at the latest.

If you currently own an iPhone, go here to find out how much the iPhone 4S will cost for you. The pricing could potentially be higher if you have not had your current phone for long enough (typically 20+ months). For example:

If you do not currently own an iPhone, log into your carrier website (Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint) and look for "Upgrade Eligibility". If you have AT&T you can also call " *NEW# " and they will text you back with details.

If you can't get to a computer you'll have three options: use the official Apple Store App, use AT&T's app called "AT&T Upgrader" (not yet released), or call 1-800-MY-APPLE. Remember, if at all possible, order from Apple.

I'll see you at at 12:01 EST on Friday!
