Why isnt Verizon blocking vacation time?
I see reports of Apple and AT&T stores blocking vacation time in October but, why isn't Verizon doing the same? This worries me a little bit. Not too long ago Verizon sided with Samsung on a lawsuit against Apple...cause for concern?

First of all, we do not know that they aren't. They may very well be, but the info has not leaked yet...
Second, that may not be their policy. And since the iPhone 4 launch on Verizon wasn't that big, they may be underestimating the iPhone 5 launch.
I highly doubt Verizon will not be getting the same device as AT&T at launch. Bell and Telus got the 3GS late in 2009, but in June they still got the iPhone 4 on the same day as Rogers. Just for example.

That sounds about right. On launch day for the 4 there weren't any crazy lines at verizon or apple stores, so it would be weird to assume a boom would happen for the next one. Let's hope this is the case for those of us on verizon trying to get one!

They're probably not doing vacation blackouts because the people that got their iPhone 4 are probably still under contract. So the big dogs at Verizon are probably thinking not a lot of people are going to be in line to get one. Not to mention some of their new android phones that came out since their iPhone 4 release.

Verizon loves their bloatware and name on every piece of hardware they sell. I for one am glad that Apple doesn't allow bloatware or carrier branding. I am likely to order from Verizon online, I feel I would have a better shot getting one that way on launch day than ordering from Apple online.
