iPhone 6S Pre-Order
Verizonfanatic

Hi so I plan on upgrading to the iPhone 6S when it comes out as my 4S is giving me issues. My question is, if I pre-order the device through Verizon or Apple, when would I expect to get the device. Would it be, before the official launch or after. I had a friend of mine pre-order the 6 when it came out and she did not get the phone until October. If I have to wait that long then I might as well wait in line at the store.

No one can answer this for you because we can't predict the demand. Demand was through the roof for the 6 release. You have to remember it was the first big-sized iPhone release...not to mention, a significant change in the iPhone look overall. If demand is high in this release then it's possible delays will occur. I preordered the 6 when it happened and received mine on the day of the official release. Others were not as lucky. I ordered from Verizon. Previous times during preorders I have received my device a day or two before it was available in store. Ordered from Apple before and Verizon.

Point being...you won't know until you know. Try to get your preorder in as soon as it opens up and hope for the best. And even though I know people won't listen to this (because they never do) don't stalk your order status. It will frustrate you. Because even if they ship from the warehouse early the delivery won't take place until Apple authorizes it. So it very well may ship quick and then sit at FedEx hub for several days before you see more movement. It happens every time. It will happen again.

My preorder has always arrived on launch day.

Like I mentioned, the only preorder for the iPhone that I received on launch day was the iPhone 6 I initially had. All of my other ones usually arrived a day or so before official launch. I've been lucky like that I suppose lol. Will be sitting this preorder out for now...I'm in no hurry to upgrade. Haven't even had my 6 plus for a year yet so I'll see how I feel about iOS 9 on it. Besides, the only thing that I'm missing a little is the finally better front facing camera lol.

I Pre ordered online immediat when I was able. Delivery date just changed to Oct 12.  Had I known that my effort would be punished, I would have ordered elsewhere

It's not a punishment. It's the popularity of the device. You could opt to cancel the order and try your luck in the stores (although with the date being less than 10 days away I would just wait). This wasn't a personal vendetta against you by Verizon in pushing back your date. It happens and it shouldn't be a surprise when it happens to a lot of people during every preorder of a highly popular device release. It's why sometimes you have to decide if it is better for you to stand in line on launch day and hope they have what you want in stock or if preordering is best for you.

SO are you seeing a date change?   I am starting to get a bit mad.  Every time I talk to a rep I get a different story.   I original ordered on 9/25 and now have two orders listed under my device but nothing showing on my orders under support.   Thanks.   I see the following. 

We are working hard to complete your order. Unfortunately, it will not be shipped as originally scheduled. You will receive a shipment confirmation email when your order ships, which will include a new delivery date.
