    Default People get a grip! LOL

    I know we are all excited about getting arguably the best phone on what we most likely consider the best network but get a grip.

    1) It is not rocket science to get all your info from one device to another.

    2)Thinking of worst case scenarios isn't going to make it come faster.

    3)Please don't be upset if you don't receive a shipping confirmation until next week. That's quite normal.

    Guys get a grip. Apple products are extremely easy to use and you can expect a smooth transition from one device to your new one. I'm sure there are different sections on this site that provide 'how-to's' and tips. They won't change because this phone is on VZW. And no one knows exactly how many they have for preorders, no one knows exactly when they will be shipped. Just try to order one asap tonight and let the chips fall. You will get your iPhone. Don't be stressed about it or inconsistent answers from reps. You will get one. Put your mind at ease. Let's be easy people and get ready to get your hands on the device you've been waiting for.

    The problem comes when VZW SENDS YOU AN EMAIL explaining how to prepare for the iPhone and their instructions are WRONG and when you call them you get a different answer each time!!!!!!!!! That is the only issue I have. I have had mac products since the old mac classic and totally love APPLE. VZW should not have told people to sign up for visual voice mail to save their old voicemail messages only to have their precious messages deleted. I had messages from people that are no longer alive and it is heartbreaking.

    I understand and sorry for your misfortune but your issue is with VZW. I'm mainly talking about those people who are thinking of every little question and worry that gets them all nervous about stuff. Just get a grip, calm down, breathe and it will be ok.

    I admit, I am completely out of my mind, I know it, acknowledge it, but can't seem to help it. Since 3 AM was announced as the official preorder time, I have woken up between 2:40 - 2:55 each night, not intentionally, but just have. That has prepared me to inevitably sleep through it tonight.....

    Yeah that would be funny (in a sad kinda way) if you kept waking up right before 3am all this time but the night when you need to wake up this time, you sleep in.

    Yeah. Fortunately my wife is a light sleeper, gets up a bunch of times during the night. Told here to wake me any time she gets up after 1:30 to wake me up.

    I'll just go downstairs and check in here....

    Don't tell me to get a grip, it's too late. I've already lost it.

    I'm going to sleep around 10:30 or 11. Wake up at 2:45 and proceed to order. Once processed back to sleep. I've been through 2 iPhone preorders before with the 3GS and 4 so I'm not as excited as someone who probably never had an iPhone. My clock radio alarm, watch and cell phone alarms will all be set. If it won't wake me up, it will wake my wife up who will in turn be pissed at me for not stopping the alarms fast enough LOL. But I have a 3 year old so I'm use to getting up in the middle of the night every now and then.

    My TAG Heuer doesn't have an alarm, otherwise that would be set too.
