    Not working here in Singapore, and can’t use the Apple Store app as well. Good job Apple. I want to give you money and want to make it difficult.

    • Gautam

      You should try now. Apple’s Online Store seems to be back up.

      • Alan

        Yeah, it seems to be better, but still can’t pre-order. It says unavailable, and its for all the iPhone models. See the screenshot below.

          Hmm, I remember there was a similar issue with the iPhone 5 pre-orders last year as well. It seem to have taken a long time for Apple to fix the issue. You may want to call Apple support and check what’s going on.

            Just tried, their automated system answers, says they are not accepting new iPhone orders to visit their online store and hangs up :(

            If you visit Apple’s Singapore site http://store.apple.com/sg, it says pre-order will be available at 8:00 pm local time. I see it’s just around 4:00 pm there, so you still have some time to pre-order your iPhone 5c. Take it easy :)

            Thanks for that, not sure how I missed it. Makes sense don’t want to looking to buy an iPhone in the middle of their work day :D

    Thanks, used the Apple Store app to pre-order the blue one.
