Surprised no early upgrades
I'm surprised the carriers, especially Verizon didn't offer early upgrades. I remember the couple times AT&T pushed up people's upgrade date so they could buy the iPhone and be locked in knowing that Verizon was getting the iPhone a few months later. So wouldhave thought with the changes Verizon made to their data plans, this would have been a good opportunity for them to lock people in longer AND switch of unlimited plans since you now have to switch if you use an upgrade. Wonder why they didn't. Oh well I would have still brought full retail anyway LOL. Verizon is going to have to pry unlimited out of my hands!

I ended up having to extend the contract to get the phone on the 21st. Sucks as my contract was going to be up May of 2013.

I called ATT yesterday because one of our phones had zero discount (not event the $250 over discounted price) and when I directly asked them if they could make that phone available for the early upgrade discount they said no but they would offer me a $200 credit on my next bill. They told me they would call me back tonight (day after pre-order launch) to confirm I ordered a 5 before issuing the credit to my account. Tonight right on schedule the same lady (Heidi) called me back and pushed through the credit. She asked me how many iPhones I purchased last night and I told her two. She asked how much i paid for them and then said she would give me a further credit but she is limited to $200 per day. So she is going to call me back the next time she worked and she is going to give me more credit (how much I do not know).
That's some damn good customer service right there.
