Pre-orders for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus begin tonight, and although the initial big purchase frenzy will proceed at a feverish pace for the next week or so, the information in this guide will still be relevant weeks or months down the road.

If you are purchasing your iPhone 6 on contract, this is when you select your carrier, and carrier plan. Not sure what the right plan is for you? We’ve got you covered with a summary of choices here.
Not sure if your are eligible for an upgrade yet? No worries, we’ve got that info right here for you. If you are a T-Mobile customer, you can also purchase contract free phones at this point in the process. Lastly you pick the storage capacity of your iPhone 6–your options are 16GB/64GB/128GB. Prices for these storage plans increase incrementally at $100 each.
Need any help or clarification along the way? Apple has an online chat option available to talk you through your options at the bottom of the ordering page as well as financing options and the ability to check and see if your purchase can be picked up in an Apple store instead of waiting for the delivery truck to arrive whenever that is on Friday, September 19th.
