    I actually don't think so. When I ordered my Tour two summers ago, I waited until midnight EST and it wasn't live yet.
    I remember I woke up early at like 9am to order it and it was up.

    I can't tell you definitely, but obviously I know we'll all try anyway

    I wonder if they put it up first thing in the morning when they get to work (like 6 or 7am) or if they wait until like 3 or 4am when traffic is the lightest

    I always assumed 6am or 7am, like press release time. But I mean, it could be different now. I haven't ordered a phone since the Tour so maybe it will be live at midnight, I just don't recall it so in the past.

    I mean I sure hope I can order my 9930 right at midnight, but it wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't up.

    I really doubt this will sell out at a price of $250. I dont believe the 9650 sold out online I ordered it a couple of days after it was released.

    Heres an idea, one i might act on depending on past experience with others. I already have my order ready to go whenever the guy gets in the office tomorrow.

    But heres the thought, If you call the telesales line at midnight, make the order, you think its possible to have the phone in hand tomorrow? Id assume they ship them out from the nearest stock in your regional location. Obviously I can wait till tuesday, but lets be real if we can get the phone tomorrow would you not do the same? Has anyone tried this before? I know they have lines open 24/7, just not sure about the specific "telesales" department..

    I highly doubt it.. They send all of the shipments out at the same time.. They wont make an exception for you and just send a truck out to deliver one phone. They probably have a set time whether it be 8am or 1pm that all of the sales go out in trucks from the closest warehouse. I could be wrong, but that's kinda what I heard and it makes sense too.

    As long as you order by 4:30 the order goes out that day. If you order at 8am it still goes out that day. I can not see UPS or Fedex EVER receiving and delivering in the same day. They are not a courier service they are a shipping and logistics company.

    Of course in this case Fedex or UPS might actual be the warehouse location so they might be the company receiving the orders.
