Pre-orders for the iPhone 5 went live last Friday in the wee hours of the morning, and just an hour later, they were gone. Sure, you can still pre-order an iPhone 5, but now the wait time is 2-3 weeks. I’m sure some of you managed to get in your bid, so what did you order? Let us know in the poll to the right.

In my case, I got a 64GB black & slate model, and I even learned something. I called Verizon on Wednesday because I wanted to switch carriers. When I spoke to a rep, she gave me a number and extension to call on Friday morning. She said that if she wasn’t there, just to leave a message and she’d call me back.

At 11:45, I called her and left her a message. At 12:05 am, she called me and I was done by 12:15. Best purchase experience I’ve had with a cell phone company in a long time.

Point is, next time around, you might try your carrier and see what options they have for pre-orders!
