Just as promised, Apple added the Verizon iPhone 4 to their website and now you can pre-order yours directly from Apple. This makes the official Apple Store the second place where you can order it online after Verizon added the iPhone 4 to its store. Ordering online and in-store pickup are both available for individual and family plans.
The official launch day for the Verizon iPhone 4 remains Thursday when we might see the very familiar lines in front of Apple stores. And demand could be even higher than expected as the iPhone 4 already topped Verizon's first-day sales record in two hours. In order to keep enough handsets stocked, it seems that new orders will not be delivered until February 18th. If you are planning on getting the Verizon iPhone, you should know that 7AM is the official time of launch at Best Buy, as well as Apple and Verizon stores.
