I’m not going to inundate you with a bunch of filler text, except to tell you that the iPhone 5C can be pre-ordered today for shipment around next Friday, September 20. If you’re looking for the more powerful iPhone 5S, it can be ordered online and in stores next Friday, September 20. No pre-orders for the iPhone 5S, in other words.
If you’d like to do a little research first, try the following:

Here are the direct links to the iPhone 5C pre-order pages on various sites:
As for retail stores, you’ll have to actually go in person to places like Best Buy, Walmart, Radio Shack and other places that sell iPhones to pre-order one. Note that Walmart currently has the best deal on the iPhone 5C, at $79 with a two-year contract. That’s $20 cheaper than everywhere else. The iPhone 5S will cost $189 at Walmart next Friday, too, which is $10 cheaper than elsewhere.
