Verizon employees won't be able to add the iPhone 4 to their employee accounts?
Sure you can be glad about the arrival of the beloved Apple smartphone, but it appears that Verizon will not allow the new handset to be activated on employee accounts. Furthermore, it sounds like Big Red is taking additional precautions as they're informing employees that they will blacklist an employee line in the event that an Apple iPhone 4 is added to their account.
The unnamed source goes further by saying that there is no concrete date as to when employees will be able to activate the flagship device on their employee line. Naturally, we'd suspect that Verizon wants to give the device to as many potential customers as possible from the onset – as opposed to employees taking up stock.
It's not clear at the moment how many units will be on hand for launch day, but this action to prevent employees from buying the handset isn't something new, in fact, it's generally what you see going on with any major product launch. Nonetheless, we suppose that desperate employees can always purchase the handset and activate it on a normal consumer account.
