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.

The way preorders sold out on att and in apple stores for the iPhone 4 you should believe it. This is how iPhones sell. Nothing else sells like this. Personally I wanna see the numbers. See how many iPhones were sold on preorders in the first 24 hours. I bet it's impressive as hell.

They can't wait. They have been waiting for this for years and now it's a reality. Verizon is banking on the one thing that apple knows it can bring out of people: that feeling of "I can't wait!" that we all had as children. Few products can make people feel like that and apple has found the recipe for it. After all people aren't just buying a phone that's due to be updated in 4 months, people will be camped out and lined up for blocks and around corners for a phone that will be updated in 4 months. It was also a wise choice for verizon to basically say "get it now while data is unlimited". that's going to force a lot of ETFs from att iPhone customers. I love watching these genius plays by companies like these.

It seems to me that rational thought goes out the window when it comes to the iphone. It can't make calls, people still buy it. It drops most of the calls you manage to complete, people still buy it. They make the fourth version out of 90% GLASS...and people still buy it knowing it eventually they will drop and break it. It wont matter if the next one has 4G or not. At this point this phone is unfortunately so popular that Apple could slap a 2G radio in it, make it out of cardboard and masking tape, but as long as it has that Apple logo on the back, people would say its the greatest thing since FIRE! Kinda silly to those of us who really like our Droids, but that just shows how power this device really is.

man that was well said, boo to iphone check this out APPLE IPHONE no adobe flash, no expandable memory, cant replace the battery yourself, wont be 4g, that damn 32 pin charger port that dont match non of the 5 micro usb car and house and usb cables that I already have. almost all of the good apps have a pricetag, but it has facetime and its pretty, nice pretty phone there guys looks good with your skinny jeans (beer commercial lmao) as opposed to ANDROID adode flash (i just streamed denzel movie "unstoppable" on my droid x and no i didnt pay for it just streamed it from zshare) expandable memory up to 32gb so far and internal memory, replacable battery (just incase you want to have a extra battery charged), now having front facing cameras, 8mp camera, tons of good free apps, can return an app, no syncing required just log back into google if you get a different android device and retreive all of your numbers and paid apps,some apps can be saved to your memory card ,NEW (as of today)google marketplace online where you can purchase apps and free apps and they start downloading to your phone right then without connecting anything. fast fast fast, text to speech, the best input method since the qwerty keyboard SWYPE, plenty of flavors and style to choose from not just one that keeps getting changed every 1 year or so. Fully customizable now how is apple better??? how and yes i had an ipod touch, and a iphone 3gs that i received from a customer that switch from at&t to get a droid x i used the iphone on wifi and as a music player to keep in my truck so i know how it functions. and droid is way better

Whateverman.... Sounds like you’re just upset because you can’t upgrade. I had the Droid, Droid2, and DroidX. Your right they are good phones but unstable because anyone can make an app for it. The iphone is just more stable so deal with it and don't hate. Yes years ago Apple had a bad name but now they are one of the best. You want quality you buy Apple! I would give up half the features of a Droid phone just for stability.

@whateverman2. Would you mind enlightening the rest of us as to how Android phones are unstable just because anyone can make an app for them? I fail to see how that is a problem in any way, shape, or form. I've had a DROID X since release and its the most stable phone I have ever owned. Sorry you couldn't handle a real phone with real features.
