Verizon and Sprint have both set up Web pages announcing the preorders and the starting time. A spokesperson for AT&T told CNET that the carrier's preorders will begin at 12:01 am. PT as well. To keep up with the rest of the pack, T-Mobile will also likely kickstart its 5C preorders first thing Friday.

Preorders for the iPhone 5c will also begin Friday for consumers in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, and the UK. Both the 5C and 5S go on sale starting September 20. Only the 5C is available for preorder. Early adopters of the 5S will have to wait until the end of next week for the opportunity to pick one up.
