Verizon iPhone Pre-Orders to Start at 3am ET on February 3rd, Offering AT&T iPhone Trade Ins - Mac Rumors
According to the email we've received, Verizon will begin pre-order sales at 3am Eastern on February 3rd.
- Make sure you have your My Verizon self-serve account set-up online. Orders can only be placed through your my Verizon account. You can register/setup your account at... myaccount.verizonwireless.com
- On February 3rd at 3am EST, Verizon Wireless will allow our current customers to order upgrades or new lines to their accounts through your My Verizon online account (make sure you have registered before the 3rd).
The email also indicates that the pre-sale inventory is limited, so when that inventory is depleted, customers will have to wait until the February 10th public launch date.

I hate this "Will be limited" stuff. I certainly do not want to wait up until 3AM, click "Place Order" right at that instant and get "Sorry, sold out, come in on the 10th". I had that crap happen for Black Friday on Amazon.com, so I am VERY weary of stuff like this. =(

Hate to break it to everybody... but this is not for consumers.
Here's the first paragraph of the MacRumors story from the link at the top:
Verizon has begun sending out information to corporate customers with more details about their iPhone launch. Verizon is offering existing customers a chance to buy the Verizon iPhone on February 3rd, a week before the general public.

You really just try to bring people down in all your posts, don't you? Stop spreading false information. Give VZW a call, ask then when the consumer phone will ship. They will tell you the 3rd. Then you can stop this.

Still - the first paragraph from the MacRumors article is very telling... it says "corporate".
I'll actually believe what I get in my own email when it comes.

Existing customers have an exclusive chance to get the phone early, shipping starting the THIRD. Christ, quit stating things as facts when you clearly have no idea what you're talking about.

I like to think we're all ignorant at this point as to what Verizon's plans are regarding shipping of the phone. We can assume or speculate all day but until we hear it directly from Verizon in the form of an informational email, I wouldn't give much credence to anything anyone else says, including VZW reps.

I told myself I was not going to get into this again, but I called Verizon to check on how best to use the $100 gift card I have on the Feb 3rd preorder. after getting my info I as if they had received any official information on ship dates of the preorders. This rep stated that have on received anything official as of yet. He said it could go either way shipping on the 3rd for a overnight or 2nd day delivery or shipping for the delivery for on or before the 10th. They just have not been told yet.
He did say that they have been told that the preorder are meant to be in Verizon customers hands before everyone else.
