    Hello everyone. Going to be switching to the Iphone 4 for VZW when it's available. Coming from a storm, let's just say that I cannot wait! I was talking to one of my friends, whose a rep at a local VZW store, and he said that people on the east coast cannot pre-order the IP4 until 3 AM (eastern time) on Thursday morning. He also said that people on the west coast can pre-order it beginning 12 AM Thursday (pacific time). I was wondering if anyone else has heard this? Anyone shed any insight? Thanks... And sorry if this question has been asked already.

    There will be limited quantity but there is still a waiting list. Phones will be shipped depending on your place in line.

    Source?

    And at what point after 3am do we think they have taken enough orders to fill pre-order inventory? 3:15?

    told by a buddy of mine in corp,not a store that there will be 200,000 for online launch,after that they go on a list that will be filled accordingly as they come in,also on 2/10 stores will be in short supply for the 1st couple weeks.

    I don't bank on anything i'm told even from friends so take this with a grain of salt.

    I am going to pre-order it from apple. the less money that i can give verizon the better. And i was in my local apple store this week, and they said they would have more in stock then any verizon store.(since the apple stores orders for more phone have priority over verizon) this is the same with atat also

    Will the AT&T store know the proper pricing based on contract date, which line it will apply to, etc....?

    Or do they just check VZW's system to make sure your line is eligible......

    Regarding ordering from VZW.....if they shoot you over to the apple site from their link, does the purchase hit your account, or is it a credit card purchase? Verizon has credited me about $120 worth of service and I would love my purchase to be on my VZW account to balance it out. But, whatever.....

    I think they're going by the turn of February 3rd on the pacific standard time. If they
    did it at the turn of the eastern time, people in the west and central would throw a
    huge hissy fit. It wouldn't be fair to say the least.

    I was seriously thinking about getting up later and getting the phone whenever....but I just remembered a good reason for me to get up to order at 3....

    My primary reason is based on how VZW does the proration for data. They charge you for the days you use in your exisiting statement month plus one month ahead.

    My statement date is the 12th/13th. If I waited until the 13th, then my bill will seem like two months worth of data. As long as I activate between the 10th-12th, I will just have a few days of data, plus the one month ahead, resulting in a fairly normal bill.

    I hope that be preorder right at 3am (barring a system crash), I will receive the phone on the 10th or 11th.



    Also, regarding ordering from Apple/VZW.....I just spoke with (what seemed to be) a very knowledgeable support rep. She said that if you order from Verizon, you will have the option of using credit card or, if a customer in good standing (her words), applying the phone to your account.

    Question...I assume if you order from Apple, they hook into the Verizon systems to ask which line you are upgrading/purchasing for so that the correct cost is charged, right???

    yeah, when talking to the apple rep if you are eligible for an upgrade on your two year contract you will be able to get the 2 year contract price.

    Yeah...surprised VZW's system opened a few minutes early...

    There is no option for overnight.
    Delivery estimate = Feb 10. They will be using Fedex. Though, with the weather, I could see a tiny delay.....

    I was able to pre-order mine about 15 minutes before 3am for some reason, not complaining about it though.


    There is no option for overnight.
    Little confused about this above quote. Why would there bean overnight option? They don't get delivered until the 10th, this is just a pre-order.
