For Verizon customers, 3am EST on February 3rd feels like it might never get here. That is when Verizon will start accepting pre-orders for the Apple iPhone 4. With a limited supply and a huge pent-up demand for the device, sleeping while the carrier starts taking pre-orders could end up with you shut out while stocks are being replenished. You might want to set multiple alarm clocks, or even call one of those numbers that will give you a wake-up call. Lastly, you could pull an all-nighter, celebrating your new Apple iPhone purchase by watching old movies or ancient sitcoms on television.
To keep you up to date on how much time is left until pre-orders are accepted, Verizon has put up a countdown page on its web site. If your current phone has a countdown timer, you can synchronize it with the time on the site to make sure you are awoken just in time.
