Well, they were a little late, but Apple is now taking pre-orders for the iPhone 5. If you live in one of the initial launch countries, you should be able to log into Apple’s website and snag a handset.

Hopefully, the company has planned ahead this time for the influx in traffic, and we won’t have to spend forever trying to place our orders. Last year it took me 2 hours to pre-order the iPhone 4S…

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like unlocked handsets will be available for US customers to pre-order. But we’ll let you know if we find out differently while we’re placing our orders.

And remember, if for some reason you can’t get your order to go through Apple’s website, you can try your carrier. Verizon, AT&T and Sprint are all taking online pre-orders this morning.

Still trying to decide which carrier and model to go with, or if you’re getting one at all? These posts may help:

So, have you pre-ordered your iPhone 5 yet?

  • Just got one! πŸ˜€

      • You can change the shipping address once they finish processing your order.

    Uk website says this:

    Additional Lightning to 30-pin Adapter
    Your iPhone includes a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter for connecting 30-pin accessories to devices featuring the Lightning connector. Purchase this additional adapter to have a second adapter for your home or office.

  • Done πŸ˜‰

  • Really pissed with sprint. I have to use their site for a deposit and it’s not working at all. I want the phone on the 21st! Already been out of a phone for 3 weeks.

  • yo help out here

    is there anyway to change the shipping address!!
    i am a college student and my dad pays the bills!

    • I have the same problem. I tried editing it after I bought it but Apple said that they are processing my order and that I’ll be able to edit soon. Hopefully then you can change the shipping.

      • yo help out here

        thanks!, so i just have to call them after i place my order.

      • yea same here. imma call later on in the morning to have it changed.

  • Raph

    • gunther801

      unlocked? where!! it was said that we could not order unlocked phones.

      • Hi might be in the UK, we can order unlocked straight from Apple here.

      • I wanted an unlock as well, did not find this option at apple.com US πŸ™ they will release an unlocked version, right???

      • Raph

        in canada it’s unlocked

  • JerseyD

    Ordered 2 black 1 white. Apple store only allowed 2 per account and had to be seperate transactions and had to order my 3rd from AT&T.

    I noticed on checkout At&t site it listed 2 different 2gb LTE plans that were $25 a month each and one said w out visual voicemail. Idk what that’s about will sort it out when bill comes.

    Would’ve been nice if I could’ve ordered all 3 from apple in one order but process was still painless.

  • cruzcontrol1001

    Pre-ordered mine AT&T black 64gb

  • Randy G Wheeler

    Got my Black iPhone 5 16gb preorderd. I’m central time and was online and ordered through Verizons website at 205am with a confirmation number within 15 minutes. Did talk to customer service and only waited about 2 minutes and they knew what they trained for. Great job Verizon!!!

    • Randy G Wheeler

      Verizon had the entire website set up with only one screw up. The website did ask if you were adding a line but it set up your phone to add a new billing contract instead of just adding a line to my existing 10gb unlimited. Customer Service annotated it on my account for any future problems and i was done!

  • I did at 11:59 cause I new they where going to be jam

  • Ordered mine. Black 64gb full price Verizon.
