    Turn on private browsing if your store is not loading, this will make sure you are loading a fresh page.

    Try turning on private mode in Safari and then refresh the apple store if you are still seeing the "we'll be back" sign.

    Is there anyway to have your preorder shipped to another address, other than the address connected with your billing?



     


    I don't know if it's still possible, but when I ordered my 3GS I had it sent to my place of work. Got it before 10AM too!

    You have to use Safari. Firefox & Chrome does not work right with Apple.com. But I got my 64gb black ordered in three minutes.

    I was in the second it went live and my black 32GB iPhone 5 has been ordered. No problems, whatsoever.

    order is in. had apple store app, apple website and at&t website open in safari on my iPad. the at&t site had this countdown running towards 12:00am PST to start their preorder process for the iPhone5 on their site. at&t's web site actually went live [B]BEFORE[/B] midnite! my order/upgrade went fast + smooth, and i was done a few minutes after midnight —my confirmation eMail arriving shortly after order completion has a 12:05am time stamp! (all the while the apple website/apple store app still had the 'we're right back' note showing)
    na, that was easy...

    Tried to order from my direct account but it didn't go through.


     


    Unluckily I did get a message saying that my legacy unlimited data plan was now canceled.


     


    I'm not sure what use there was in upgrading a phone that can only be used for full video 23 seconds per day on the $50 per month data plan.

    Here's the deal ... If you have a new iPad then you will not be able to get through to the apple store ... If you have an iPad 2 .... Your golden. I ordered mine through iPad 2 with no issues ... I tried through iPad 3 with no luck. It may have something to do with the older version ... Not sure what or why. But thats what I found when I has them both up at the same time. I even went in several more times on my iPad 3 and nodda ... I then got back on my iPad 2 and I get in every time.

    I have always had my stuff shipped to work rather than home as FedEx is a little... unreliable at my home address. This time the Apple Store app on my phone wouldn't let me change the address, so I switched to the computer. That wouldn't let me change the address either. I couldn't find any way to have it shipped to work.


     


    Guess I just have to hope the delivery gods are smiling on my home next Friday.

    AT&T site took a big shit.

    ISP died

    Connected iPad3 to iPhone tether, and used the Apple site.

    Worked great. Pre-order done. Now comes the week long waiting game.

    I dunno. Order acknowledged 1 minute after go-live (note, that's one minute past five in the afternoon in Sydney).
