Tips for pre-ordering on the 9th
Congrats to all new iphone users! Any tips on how the preorder, or things to watch out for, or be careful about. I am sooo looking forward to this next step.
I supect that being a new customer order this will be more complicated than an upgrade or add on.

If you order online, can you port your old number? (I currently have Sprint). Or do I have to go to the store to do that?
If I can do it online, how do I prove that I am the "owner" of the number I am porting from? Do I have to send them a copy of an old bill? It seems like that would take days......

Im up at school. Verizon 3 min away. I am hoping that it wont be packed considering it isnt a huge town. But never under estimate the iphone. My plan is to wake up thursday around 5 and head to the store....
Think thats early enough? Im going to call and see if they can give me a hint to how many they think they will have or if they are expecting a line. I neeed 2 iphones. heading up this weekend so decided to surprise him and pick one up. he wanted to wait a little but i figure if he really doesnt want it yet, he can return it.. he wont.. but i hope i can get it thursday!

*Just in case* they do not allow you to port in during the ordering process, you can still port in your number after the fact, which I recommend you doing in order to speed up your ordering process and getting your order number that much sooner and increasing your chances of getting ahold of your own Verizon iPhone. You can start this process after activating your phone by simply speaking with customer service. It's very simple.
Hope this helps!
