The site now directs expectant customers to wait until the iPhone becomes available to non-Verizon customers, as of 3:01 AM EST on February 9th. After that, they will be available in select stores starting at 7 AM local time on February 10th.
If the pre-sale shortage is any indication, we recommend that you settle in on Verizon's website before 3 AM on the 9th. Otherwise, you could be stuck waiting in a line with too many people and too few iPhones. But maybe you want to wait in the cold line outside. Who knows? If nothing else, it will show your commitment to the Big Red Apple revolution.
