If you are one of many souls looking to purchase the iPhone 5 and just so happen to also be a Deutsche Telekom customer, you’ll be glad to know that the iPhone 5 is now being offered to you. Starting today, customers of the German mobile operator can pre-order iPhone 5 in anticipation of supply issues for the device, reports Bloomberg. Maybe that’s a protective step, to keep T-Mobile’s systems from getting deluged on launch day; we don’t know.
The operator will start distributing reservation coupons (Premieren Ticket) from today for early adopters who are willing to upgrade without questioning sales representative about iPhone 5′s release date, pricing or naming details. These coupons will let you claim your handset, when it arrives, on a first-come-first-served basis. Coupons are limited to one per customer, however.
The actual shipment date and receipt of your iPhone 5 order is not guaranteed and may be subject to delays due to several potential factors, including availability and credit issues apart from just supply bottlenecks.
In US, pre-orders is likely to start in late September which implies that Apple’s fall media event will take place in September where Apple is anticipated to announce cost-effective iPhone handset alongside iOS 5, iCloud and iPhone 5.
