Apple iPhone 4S pre-orders still available at Target Mobile
If you are disappointed in the now 4 week estimated shipping times of the Apple iPhone 4S then head on over to your local Target Mobile because pre-orders are still available and you can have your new smartphone next week.

Target Mobile has been offering pre-orders of the iPhone 4S since last Friday. As of now they are only offering them for AT&T and Verizon. All models with the exception of the black 32GB iPhone 4S for AT&T is still available.

Today, October 13, is the last day that they can accept pre-orders for any of the iPhones. The cutoff date for getting the device on launch day was Monday, October 10. Even though the devices won’t arrive until mid-next week that is still a lot sooner than the 4 week wait time that Apple is currently estimating for new orders.

At the time of purchase a $50 deposit is required for the pre-order. When your iPhone arrives at the location in which it was pre-ordered the $50 will come off of the total price of the handset. Hurry though because like we said today is the last day of pre-orders since tomorrow is launch day.
Anybody getting ready to head over to their local Target Mobile now?

does the site or its users really need it in the comments to every article that is apple related?

the only way he gets any meaning in life is to put down a product to make himself feel good. sad really.

that's exactly the same way how Crapple is banning Samsung products to make themselves more money for slashing market choices.

you're getting it don't you?

the iSheeps - Fandroids relationship is very complex and has always been on the 'give and take' situation. They bash one another and they love it. And they bash on every Apple/Android related article not just Apple related.

Site and users need it too, without bashing and trolling, users will get bored, and if users get bored they will move to another site and phonearena wont be that profitable. so it's kinda helping hand situation.

so relax and make yourself comfy.

youre way off on how evenly distributed the "bashing" is. there are currently fandroid posts in every apple related article on the front page. im not sure ive seen one "isheep" troll in an android article this week. but, i admitidly dont open every article, just the nexus prime news (which i post my excitement about).

despite my avatar and screen name, i am a fan of both OSs.

I can tell because I've seen you bash android before several times :).. but that's ok.. thats the way how it goes around here.. fair enough right?

but still you're more of an Apple fan than android.. =)

if you've seen me bash android, its in response to trolling or me explaining my personal experience (i have a droid X). ive never gone to an android article just to talk trash.

dacastrator, your fanboyism/trolling while using the flag of the Philippines as your avatar is just disgusting. Fandroids like you making posts like this on every apple news only shows your insecurity of the success of the iPhone and Apple.... and I know you will be in denial after this. Get a life.

uhh.. wow how patriotic of you that is so great.

on the other hand, your comment makes you sound irrelevant and stupid. no Apple hater - android fan argues crapple's success, they are successful, no doubt about it. and personally, i'm not insecure about it because no matter what they come up with, Android will still better.

what we argue, bash and troll about is how the iPhone 4s, iOS 5 rips people off and how it is outdated, less capable and disappointing.

and how on earth will i be in denial? denial of what? you iSheeps are in denial. denial that the iPhone 4s is a piece of garbage. Get over it.

Ofcourse fandroids like you will always think that your arch-rival would be outdated, less capable and disappointing. I own a Galaxy S2 and an iPhone 4 and I like them both. Yet I don't agree with your one-sided view about the iPhone4S and iOS5. Each OS has their strong points. Only fandroids like you think that android is your God and nothing will ever be better. And just like your faith in Android, your high and mighty view of yourself disregarding others as irrelevant and stupid shows how much space you have left on your brain for understanding. You should be the one telling yourself to get over it.

Because it really is, imagine Crapple releases one model per year and that's all they can come up with? seriously though, i know they can do better.

As for you, you're still not getting it do you? never said iOS has no strong points, and you are a hypocrite douchebag if you say iPhone 4s is not disappointing and less capable than other high-end droid phone. no one can argue that.

bottom line is I say you are irrelevant and stupid because you dont get the point. you get over it.

All that's available for AT&T is the 16gb Black 4S. Everything is still available for Verizon customers.

the average customer I speak to that has a 8gb 3G/3GS is usually having space issues by the time they upgrade. I would say go for the 16gb. Or get something with expandable storage, if space is really an issue.

RadioShack is still accepting preorders too. They started taking Sprint preorders yesterday evening.

I'm a kiosk manager for the Target Mobile program. Our pre-orders ARE still open, but most of the AT&T models are sold out. No more 32Gb in black, no more 16 or 32Gb in white, but 16/32 in black or white are still available for Verizon. So you guys know, going on Target's website will lead you to their mobile phone portal, but that company, Simplexity, is not us. We only do this pre-order program in brick & mortar Target stores. All the preorders we took from last friday through monday will be arriving today and early tomorrow for customers to pick up at launch, and anyone that preorders through tonight will have it by the middle of next week.
