How quick will pre-order stock sell out?
I've heard that the pre-ordering begins at 3 am on February 3. I plan on ordering the iphone at exactly 3 am. Do you think this will be an easy task? I mean, how many could they possibly sell overnight? I feel like the pre-order should last at least until noon later that day. I just really want to get this order it and have it delivered on the 10th.

I just talked to a Verizon customer service agent and she told me it should not be a problem for existing verizon customers. They are anticipating high demand, however, I think they are prepared to meet it. I'm still going to hit "submit order" as early as possible!

Black Friday 2010. I am up at 7 AM (been up all night) for that big ticket item that starts on-sale at 7:00 sharp. 10. 9. 8. 7...3. 2. 1. "Place order!". I hit the "Place Order" button no later than 7:00:01 (That 1 second after 7) and all I got was "Sorry, all sold out". THAT made me so mad!

I think that is a distinct possibility. This forum isn't the only one wanting to do this, and look at the lines for just a new iPhone with AT&T, and that carrier already had an iPhone! A whole new world basically for us Verizon folks that we have been locked out of for 3 years+ unlimited data for a limited time, yeah, I think instant sold-out status could happen.

Yes, the AT&T iPhone4 pre-order was a mess... is seems that both AT&T and Apple had underestimated the demand, and neither company's servers could handle load... of the people around here that got the iP4, they had best success via the iPhone Apple Store app... not sure if/how that will work with the VZW iPhone, since the 2/3 pre-order is for existing VZW customers only, and there is no VZW iPhone yet...

but it's gonna be hard to say if the pre-order will or won't sell out since it's VZW customers only, the ATT preorder was open to everyone, I think this is VZW tactic of trying to avoid overload and crashing
