OK - we are now around 14 hours away from the 7th (on the east coast at least!) and nowhere is there any indication of what time Sprint will have the 4s available to preorder.
Having "chatted" with various sprint people I have been told anything from the vague "early morning" to the specific 6pm Central Time! So which is it??
I don't want to wait up till around 3am to find out that it won't be available then.
Surely Sprint must know by now what time they will be able to have it available to pre-order?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Sprint today confirmed that unlimited data pricing plans will be available for its October 14 launch of the iPhone. New and existing customers can order iPhone 4 today and pre-order iPhone 4S on Friday, Oct. 7 at beginning at 12:01 a.m. Pacific time at www.sprint.com/iphone.
Apple will begin iPhone 4S preorders at 12:01 am PDT on Friday, Oct. 7. However, Sprint iPhone 4 preorders are live now on sprint.com/iphone, but Apple.com still shows "coming soon" for Sprint iPhone 4. Will Sprint allow preorders at 12:01 PDT on Oct. 7 for iPhone 4S? I have no confidence that Apple's webiste will be updated for Sprint at that time.
Thanks for this reply, but nowhere on sprints website does it say that the 4s will be availablw at 12.01am PDT, that is an apple press release and their website specifically states that the 12.01am is not for sprint - their chat support staff say the same thing. I know that you are a Sprint support staffer so I just wanted to check that Sprint will be doing it at that time too, no one else at Sprint has verified that info other than you.
