Should I pre-order the Iphone 5 tomorrow to sell on launch day on ebay? Usually how the iphones work is your pre-order or camp out on launch day. If you do not do this it usually takes weeks to months to just walk into an Apple or Verizon store to get your hands on one easily. So if I pre order and receive on launch day and throw it up on Ebay do think I'll get good money for it maybe a grand? Cost what like 700 to preorder.
