One of the first Verizon iPhones received by a customer in Indiana

This true Apple fanatic braved the snow to drive to his local UPS on a Satuday morning, just so he could start tapping away at his new device. If we weren't so mobile-obsessed ourselves, we might say that this guy was a little too excited.
But isn't this the kind of anticipation Apple and Verizon are counting on? Verizon already broke their own sales records between the odd hours of 3 and 5 AM, so they must be doing something right. When general sales open up on February 9th and 10th, we expect swarms of AT&T iPhone owners to be in line as well. We can't speak for AT&T or Verizon. But if the commercials are any indication, the iPhone turf-war has only just begun.

I ordered One too and I'm excited to get the phone, BUT the fact that phone arena Put this article up on there site of a guy opening up a ups box is really pathetic. The fact that I watched it is probably bad too but come on ... I just bought a htc eve for my girlfriend and I must say it's a great phone and I'm wondering if I'll love the phone as much as I do love playing with her new phone. Save some pride and stop putting these articles up guys. Just a concerned phone arena avid reader

Have to agree, my friend. Love this site, but I feel dirty and stupid even watching the clip. Good thing he showed the knife, round the east coast, him and his GF would have been robbed (camera for evidence). Don't let this site turn into another phonescoop -- I know the reviews have been lacking at times, and I find myself going right to phonedog for those. But I still come here for 'other things'.

You can clearly see the Verizon Wireless Address on there, and I know what there boxes look like, not to mention you can see the red paper work he pulls out and shoves back in when the phone is pulled out.

Seriously, do people even do this? To me, it seems like a very useless feature, if that's the AT&T advantage I'm perfectly happy without them as my provider. It's like that car that can parallel park itself. I maybe have to parallel park once a year. I guess some people would use the feature, but I just don't see the majority ever needed it or using it.

This is the saddest and most pathetic video anyone has ever taken. It's a cell phone, people...

Fake. I work for fedex and verizon ships most of their products through fedex. We didnt process any of the iphones until yesterday, 2/5/10. FYI we did process 25,000 in 3 hours.

This is not fake. Since most of these phones were shipped from Apple they are going through UPS and FedEx. Apple uses UPS for all it's shipments so anything that came through their Direct Fullfilment went through UPS and anything that went through Verizon's went through FedEx.

The weird thing is he got it from ups...Verizon uses Fedex for all shipments to customers. I've opened thousands of these boxes.

Due to the mass amount of orderes, Verizon has teamed up with not only Fed Ex there usual distributor, but also UPS to get everyone there phones in a timely matter. Mine is set for delivery on Monday and it is in fact coming UPS

These people are really annoying with "this is fake because it was shipped by UPS" stfu people haha. I know it's just a phone but VZW uses multiple shipping carriers and I would assume that because I received my phone from UPS when I ordered from them.
