Great to have more confirmation! Thanks! I am wondering if they intentionally threw out the "upgrade eligible" BS on a Saturday Night to get an idea of the outcry. Do it via a tweet, that was less than clear, and monitor the reaction on forums like these, as well as calls it generated. Wouldn't surprise me. Ultimately, it seems they are making the right decision.

Well, got a 'response' from the email I sent earlier. Guess because I called and got told full retail is able to preorder, no need to put it in writing. I like the 'you are on the right plan' part.

Confirming - adding lines now means you can upgrade later
Just wanted to confirm that if you have an old phone or two laying around, VZ will allow you to add them on a month-to-month contract now, and they will be eligible to upgrade at the promotional price to the iphone on Thursday (2/3). Although you have to pay the activation fee now, you won't have to pay later when you upgrade to the 2-year contract.
The phone rep says he's been getting calls like that all day long...

I thought I posted this on here last night, but I guess not...
I spoke to a phone CSR last night who told me that ESN-swapping would NOT be supported for the iPhone (at least, not right away). This stands in contrast to what other phone CSRs have assured me over the last several days. She checked with her manager who backed up the story. She claimed it had to do with a "special Apple chip" which prevented a different number from being assigned to the phone.
I don't believe her 100%, but I'm preparing myself to have to start giving out a new phone number to friends and family...
