Best Buy kicks off iPhone 4S pre-orders: get up to $300 for your old phone

It seems like an age ago that I was sitting, pressing refresh on Apple’s online store, waiting for the iPhone 4S pre-orders to go live. That “we’ll be back soon” sticky note was there for far too long. Around 39 minutes too long in fact. Of course, Verizon, AT&T and Sprint all began accepting pre-orders earlier too. Best Buy is a little late to join…

Banned iPhone 4S promo hits YouTube [video]

The oooJLEooo channel on YouTube has become infamous over the past four years for recreating Apple’s stylish promo ads with a little more realism.

iPhone 4S pre-orders are go!

If you’re up late/early to try and catch an iPhone 4S before they’re gone you’ll know that Apple’s store is still keeping us waiting on the new device. The familiar “we’ll be back soon” sticky note is front and center. However, if you go to Verizon or Sprint’s sites, you should have more joy. (Also, Vodafone UK’s pre-order page is fully operational.)…

iPhone 4S data and voice plans: What the top 3 US carriers are offering

I’m sure I don’t have to let you guys know that the iPhone 4S goes on pre-order at 12:01 tonight (3 a.m. ET) – well, technically it’s tomorrow morning, if you want to get all technical about it… Anyway, regardless of the generally underwhelmed reaction to the device, there’s no doubt in my mind that pre-orders will still reach astronomical numbers. And…
