If you’re one of the countless wondering just what time pre-orders for the iPhone begin this Friday, September 14th, it appears that the start time will be 12:01AM PST (3AM EST) – this according to a press release from Sprint. Both AT&T and Verizon have not yet to disclose when they’ll be taking pre-orders on their websites. It’s probably safe to say that Apple too will be commencing pre-orders online at the midnight mark.
Buying the iPhone 5 on a contract will cost $199 for the 16GB. $299 for a 32GB, and $399 for the 64GB model. Meanwhile, the off contract price for the iPhone 5 starts at $649 for the 16GB. For those who’d rather skip the pre-orders online and experience first hand the joys of camping outside an Apple Store the night before (or nights), the official launch begins at Apple Retail Stores at 8:00 a.m. on September 21.[GottaBeMobile]
