ASAP! You will have it the next day or that Monday!
Closer to the 10th, so you might get it 1 day early.
On the 10th so you won't get it until a few days after the 10th.
The site will crash/ there will be nowhere near enough to go around. Forget it.

I'm going to say B and here's why. I agree that this is a whole new ballgame for Verizon and Apple, and that Apple probably has much more control over the situation than prior phone manufacturers dealing with Verizon. So while precedent is important, it's probably less-so in this case.
However, if it's option A, it puts a potentially significant number of iPhones in the market before it's available to the general public. While most won't do this, many people can and will quickly turn and sell them on eBay, making a giant profit off Apple's product. In fact, if it's option A and you have 5 lines, you buy one for yourself, and 4 others ... ALL at Full Retail. Turn around, sell all but one on eBay for a HUGE killing ... this just has disaster written all over it, and I don't think it's a path Apple wants to go down.
Therefore, I think B. I think we'll get ours potentially as early as the 8th, most likely 9th or 10th. Even if we get it on the 8th, turn it around, sell it on the 9th, your buyer gets it on the 10th, when they could possibly get one from an Apple or Verizon store.
I will still hope for A!

Hello everybody, I'm new here but i've been reading these forums daily since the announcement. Not knowing the actual ship date is causing some trouble for me. Let me explain...
Before they even announced that the iphone would be coming to verizon my girlfriend and I had made arrangements to visit her family next weekend from the 3rd until the 6th. I'm planning on ordering the phone at 3am this thursday and paying for the quickest shipping possible, but I have no idea where to have it shipped to.
If I get it shipped to my home and it ends up arriving on the 4th, I'll be stuck in Pennsylvania knowing that my precious is just sitting in Connecticut waiting for me.
I could have the phone shipped to my girlfriends parents house and hope that they actually are offering true overnight shipping. However, if i do this and they don't end up shipping the phone until later and it arrives on the 10th, i'll be back home in Connecticut...
What would you do?
