Did you buy a Verizon iPhone 4 today?

Did you buy a Verizon iPhone 4 today?
Yesterday we showed you video of Verizon stores preparing for their 7am opening today for the iPhone 4 launch. If you are interested in owning the device, did you make it to a store today and buy the iPhone 4 - or are you waiting until a later date to purchase it? As you're aware, the rumors of the Apple iPhone coming to Verizon are as old at the original AT&T iPhone's release. Now that it has happened, do you think it was worth the wait?

These happy customers sure think so, as showcased in the newest Verizon videos.

nope. I have the droid X and the iphone 4 doesn't have anything that's amazingly better than my phone. I'll wait til the iphone 5 and that see what i'll do. For now, Pass.

No, even though I have an upgrade im still going to wait for the new iphone and probably be disappointed and will end up purchasing the Bionic. I at least want to give apple a chance. I didn't like my first iPhone maybe I will like the next one. I'm just glad i left AT&T

also i believe att had more traffic in all their iphone launches

5 all day?? How is that possible? I work at one of the slower locations in my district and we've killed that in new adds alone. Are you talking about just new contracts or are you including renewals?

Well, all of the iPhone fanatics most likely ordered the iPhone last week, thus leading to low turnouts at the stores.

Well with me I kinda don't care, because I will have 2 upgrades rolling around by then, and plus I'm not paying for these phones anyways!

Maybe it's me, but I didn't see the love today. At 7:13 this morning, I drove by a Verizon store and counted 5 vehicles parked in the lot. At 7:27, I drove by a second Verizon and counted 3 vehicles. At 7:58, I did manage to count 6 in front of the third Verizon. I feel bad for the employees that had to be up earlier for these stores. Even if these 14 vehicles were for iphones, it isn't what I would have expected. It may be that people could be waiting for the next iteration of the iPhone. But for those that couldn't wait, I really thought I would see more abundance of early crowds. John B.

I work at a corporate store. We sold a decent amount, I sold 17 myself today but the morning turnout was not as crazy as expected.

I also work at a corporate store, and for my whole area its safe to say the getting up at 4am, the security guards we had, and spending our whole days working was a complete waste of time. The main store in our area ended up with a decent amount but no where what they expected. Anyone who wanted an IPhone went on one of the TWO online preorders and ordered it. Once again sales reps lose another battle to our biggest competitor.......verizonwireless.com, the best sales rep because they don't make commission

couldn't agree more...or when the call center tries under cutting you...saying us reps don't know what we are talking about when most of the time it's the call center who doesn't have a clue. I called in trying to get a replacement ally for a customer and the girl didn't know there was a problem with most allys (2.2 update=no SMS) I don't think it'll require getting up early but the thunderbolt and bionic releases will be better. anyone who wanted the iphone got it on the 3rd or the 9th...

That reminds me of that OFFICE episode when Dwight beat the computer at sales. However, I think mr.VZW won this time. No more fat commission checks like we had for the droid x. Internet preorders only, Why couldnt they call in the order or preorder at the store, what kind of pooh pooh is that... ? ITS THE MAN!

Same things happen over at&t with us and our back offices and online sales. we all feel that pain pretty much every shift.

First of all, your Engrish hasn't improved one iota. Secondly, none of us with brains really thought the lines would be nearly as crazy for this launch as they have in the past, for a few reasons: 1) It's winter, it's fucking cold outside, and it's only a couple of months after everyone got a second mortgage to buy all their Christmas presents. The timing was horrible. 2) The timing was horrible because all of the iFanboys know that in just four months, four STINKING months, there will be an iPhone 5. 3) The cost for most of the AT&T iFanboys to jump ship for an iPhone on Verizon would be horrendous. Most people in the US don't have that kind of money. 4) Android. Android is proving to be just as viable an option for a fun, functional smartphone OS, and since there are options ranging from more affordable than the iPhone to "just as expensive as the iPhone with features and characteristics that kill it," it's turning out to be the iPhone killer. This is why when all the rumors were swirling around that the iPhone was coming to Verizon at this time of this year, I didn't believe it, because it was such a fucking stupid idea. But hey, in four months there will be an iPhone 5 and then we'll see what really happens. In the meantime, learn how to speak and write English, because it's really painful even reading your posts.

Oh yeah, and estimates say that as many as a million iPhones were sold online during the preordering periods, so suck on that.

Yes. Yes I am. I'm the evil one, though. You know, that kind of bastard who actually likes Motorola and Android. I'm also an atheist and anarchist. I eat babies and double park. ;)

What am I a fanboy of? I'm not an iPhone fanboy, I'm not fond of them. I like Verizon, but I thought it was a stupid move for them to do this release and not wait for the iPhone 5. I gave the reasons why the opening wasn't wild, which were reasons I considered before the opening when I figured that the lines weren't going to be wild. And bai, I never said that Verizon execs had brains. :P

Then why did the Mall of America store have 50 metres of freaking crowd control ropes snaking back and forth that could hold hundreds of people lined up if they weren't expecting a huge crowd? Makes no sense.

I was gonna get one but....... You have to agree to a 2 year contract. There is no one year contract for the iphone. Hell I didn't know we could get a one year contract until last year...... All that time I thought 2 years was the only option. Now that I know, I will only take a one contract with anyone.
