    Frog, you had preordered and gotten a contract discount, right? How did that get handled at the iStore?

    Hmm, don't iPad 2s get the OS update? Not where it should be in my settings.

    Can't say yet. I'm still restoring my iPhone and I'm converting all my songs to 192 kbps so it's taking a long ass time to sync.


    Correct. I had originally pre-ordered on AT&T's web store but it was stuck on backorder because they ran into an issue while porting my number. Because of that, I was allowed to cancel my pre-order, effectively allowing me to pay the subsidized price at the Apple store.

    Me either. Sort of bumming me out.



    Ah, so I probably can't wander by my hipster invested iStore and then cancel my preorder.

    That should be it under settings. Near the top.

    Yup, but no "Software Update" choice. Bumming me out.

    Yup. You have to cancel your pre-order first and then you can buy it at the subsidized price at Apple.

    DO IT.

    Your inner fanboi awakens.. :nodding:

    What if I cancel and get there to find they're out? Nah, I'll just wait. Ships 10/5.

    So simple. Call up your local Apple store and ask them if they have the iphone of your choice (color, size, and carrier). If they say yes, they have plenty of stock left.

    This year, a large number of Apple stores received bountiful supply and when I dropped by earlier today at 1 PM, they still had a shit ton left. I obviously don't know if there are any left now, but it's worth a shot calling them up.

    Just think about it, d00d, you could be enjoying your iPhone 5 by EOD today, depending on what time zone you're in.

    DO IT.
