    Exclamation The Countdown Begins

    Got your game face on? Credit card ready? Computer on standby? All hopped up on Mountain Dew? Were only hours away from possibly the biggest pre-order in Verizon history. As a Verizon customer im very excited. I can say that I have been waiting on this day since the iPhone launch. But, are the servers going to crash? If your excited about this thing as much as I am, then throw your comment in here. Talk about what you think is going to happen, what you hope is going to happen, and general excitement. 18 hours/30 Minutes and counting people!!!

    True that, my alarms are ready to go. My wife is probably going to shoot me in the face for having an alarm set that early.

    Edit:
    15 hours/40 minutes!

    The weather is so bad here I had a dream or rather nightmare that our power went off & I couldn't order online. I have been waiting for this day for years. 2 alarms set, but probably won't be able to sleep anyway. Hope all goes well for everybody!!!

    I am SOOO excited, I have waited too long for the iPhone. I cannot wait for 3AM I won't be able to sleep either so I think I am going to have to go with the BlackOps idea haha.

    My evening is all plotted out....

    Get home from work around 6:16-6:30PM, have dinner, play with the kiddies, hang with the family until around 10:30-11 PM. Probably have a later cup od coffee then normal to stay up

    Go downstairs to the office, boot up the laptop and keep it on the Verizon website ready to go.

    Turn on the XBox and TV and download the new maps for Black Ops, text my cousins to get on, and play until around 2:55AM. Turn off Xbox console, and sit at my Laptop until the site is ready and the order is completed and confirmed.

    The hope? First and foremost that everything goes nice and smooth, no problems, no outages, that transaction completes without a hitch. The second hope? That my confirmation reads that it will arrive on the 4th

    Then......wait in happy anticipation for my iPhone to arrive

    My wife and I were blessed with our second child recently. And Don't Tell her but I have slowly but surely adjusted my Daughter feeding time to be the natural alarm clock. And since I have fed her all day why my rests and slept during the day, I will be able to be order my Iphone 4 in peace.

    I wish it were 12 for me. The idea of waking up at 2:45 and trying to go back to sleep in order to be at my office at 7:30 is someone unappealing... Oh well, the greater good!!!

    southern cal girl here so I will be up at midnight too. I didn't decide til a few hours ago to preorder tonight...was gonna wait til the 9th and show up Verizon and camp out, then I was gonna preorder on the 9th and wait in line on the 10th but after reading all the forums I decided I should give myself the best chance at getting the phone and just preorder tonight. hopefully my vacation day is approved so I can at least be home for the delivery. good luck to us all
