Verizon iPhone Preordering info
I found this on the Verizon forums, and thought you guys might be interested in this, as there's be questions on if preordering will be done only at Verizonwireless.com, or also at Apple.com.
Many of you might already know this, but i will share for those of you who dont.
After talking to 3 different genius agents at 3 different apple stores in my area, this is news to me:
On Feb 3rd at 12:01 am, you CAN pre order the phone at BOTH verizonwireless.com AND apple.com
On Feb 10th All locations will be "FULLY STOCKED" of iphone 4's. She did say she will have a lot, but depending on the hype, it may sell out that day or the day before IN STORES. meaning it wont sell out in two hours but you might have to call verizon or call apple to order the phone and have it shipped.
This is good news in case you encounter site slow downs on here. Apples site might be more suited to handle the high traffic compared to this site.

I sure would like to know if they're going to allow pre-orders to be HELD at an Apple Store. Didn't they do that for AT&T and there were "pre-order" and "non pre-order" lines?
I'll be in Las Vegas Feb 5-12th. If I call and pre-order to have shipped, it will arrive ~10th and no one will be home. Yes, I can have it shipped somewhere to be signed but I won't get it until I get home, the 12th. I could wait in line at an Apple Store, the 10th, but I want to be GUARANTEED they'll have a phone for me. I don't want to have to be there too extremely early (say no earlier than 7AM) when they open at 10AM but end up losing out on a phone because my vacation was scheduled before the iPhone was announced.

Looking for confirmation on telesales on the 3rd. I have an older plan and do not want to change. Doesn't it always ask you to pick a plan when you try to order online? I have done telesales on the last two phones I ordered so my plan did not change at all..

so how exactly is this gonna work? When you pre-order on the 3rd, will you have the option to ship to your house or pick up in store. I think I will be more comfortable with shipping to my home because I can just see it now that when I get to VZW store the ***** that works saying to me " Sorry but I know you had a reserved phone but we are all sold out, sorry" They are idiots, I avoid going in if I can help it.

Trust me guys (from experience)... you will be able to order the i4 at 12:01 am from the Verizon's or Apple's website Feb 3rd, you will receive your phone ON the 10th, so it will ship a day or two before hand. On some.. I repeat some occasions there may be a chance you would receive it a day or two prior to the 10th.
If you are going to a store (Apple or Verizon Corp), I recommend Apple(if you have one close enough)..it will be worth it. Apple will feed you and keep you happy while waiting in line, water, pizza, pretzels, a wide variety of drinks.. you name it they probably have done it (again speaking from experience).
