Verizon stores prepare for their 7am opening for the iPhone 4
0. phoneArena 10 Feb 2011, 00:17 posted on
Today is the day. Verizon stores will be opening at an early 7am as customers (new and existing) can come in and walk-out with a new iPhone 4. We've all heard the device sold-out last week and had high sales numbers, when current customers were able to pre-order it, so Verizon is expecting a large store turn-out today. So what are stores doing to prepare themselves, you may ask? Verizon shows us in a behind the scenes looks at one of its New York stores, as eager employees open the large brown shipping boxes full of iPhone 4s, placing them on shelves, as well as installing the display units for customers to try out before they buy. And don't forget about all the accessories too!

I am very excited as a employee, I work 16 hours straight to today and have not been to bed yet and I am so pumped. Even though I use a droid and would never use IOS personally, I am happy for all the consumers who have been waiting for this moment. It will be a HUGE day today.

Yay! Let the mayhem commence! I'm going to see if I can get to the store and record it on my DROID X!

Nice!!! I think I may pick one of these up so i can play Angry birds while waiting in line for the iphone 5 in a few months

You can already play Angry Birds, absolutely free, on an Android phone. Or maybe you're being facetious, in which case, GOOD ONE, KIND SIR.

Actually, although Angry Birds is free from the Android Market I was unable to even play it due to lag from ads. Also, it randomly got deleted from my Droid in the middle of playing it. Don't ask me how but my Droid did some weird things.

You shouldn't have to root your phone.....

My Droid X handled it absolutely fine. I can't tell you what the problem is without taking a look at your Droid (or Android phone, or whatevs). By "Droid" do you mean the original Droid or what? If you have one of the cheapie Droids with the crappy processors and low memory that may be your problem. I don't see the higher end Droids screw up very often at all.

Maybe get a phone with a better processor so you don't have a lag.. It's not the games fault your phone is slow.

Or maybe, just maybe, people actually decided to wait until they get off work to go and buy one that way they can spend the rest of the night playing with it. Then again, that's crazy talk, you're right, the worlds most popular phone is a huge fail on the nations best network!
