    I will relunctantly be up although I firmly believe there won't be an issue at all for ordering on the 3rd. As I've stated previously, I honestly believe they will have sufficient numbers for anyone wanting one on the 3rd.

    Damn, there seems to be some serious demand for a CDMA iPhone. Let's see how strong Verizon really is. They talk it, can they walk it?

    Just watch, this will probably be one of the smoothest preorders in recent memory. I don't know why I believe this but I have to think that Apple has some experience in this area and Verizon tries to seperate themselves from AT&T as much as possible so I can't see them repeating AT&T's history. They have a plethora of iphones in stock and all orders placed on the 3rd will be filled without delay.

    i agree with you...

    plus i said in another post....even if they do sell out they are not going to be on back order for months like the droid inc was...they had component supply issues this is not the case for iphone, so if they do sell out on the 3rd you wont have to wait too long

    I'll be up at 3AM and I have taken the 3rd off of work for the occasion. Yeah, I'm serious about this phone.

    I'll set my alarm for 2:45. I work that day, but took the 4th off just in case they ship on the 3rd for the 4th.

    I, too, will be getting up to pre-order. My wife shook her head when I told her. When I thought it was going to be midnight, that she got, since I am usually up until 11:30-12 anyway, but 3 AM? Might have to go to bed early on Groundhog day and get up early. I will work at home the day I know it is arriving. That guy in the commercial with the Magic Mouse and BT Keyboard tapping his desk (conveniently at 2:10...) ... That is how I feel, like I am sitting here waiting.

    why 3am EST, that seems strange. When I pre-ordered the incredible, it was midnight.

    Heh heh, for the California crowd, NOBODY will get to order this phone before midnight.

    I will probably be staying up until that 3:00 hour, if Im tired, I may just plug my earphones in to the Droid and let the alarm wake just me and not the house placing the order, and off to bed.

    I agree, 3am seems quite random. Maybe who ever first said 3am meant 3am PST? That would make sense as it would be 3am EST.

    It appears that it will be 3 AM EST, 12 AM PST. Perhaps trying to not give PST an advantage being 9 PM?

    None of us know for sure, but my educated guess is that it will be available at 12am EST. So for you, 9PM on the 2nd.

    For At&t, these iPhone releases always went off of Apple time which is PST. Could be different for Vzn though

    That's true, because Apple is famously based in Cupertino after all. Sucks for those of us on the East coast but I'm still going to be up to order the minute it becomes available.

    Well, leading back to the "we'll know when we know" department...

    Just spoke to a telesales rep. Was told 12:01 EST. Think they will actually confirm a time?

    Doubt they will confirm a time that would be too easy for everyone if they did that

    HA! Seriously. They probably love the call volume. "WHAT? Publish something online and have people sitting around cause no one is calling? HA!"

    I just got off the phone with a VZW Rep on their 611 number and I asked them about this. They said to me, 12:01 EST pre-orders begin and iPhones will be shipped out Feb. 10

    So the lack of clear information continues. So we THINK we know when we can order it, but still are unclear on when it ships. My thought is this. I can see it being like preordering a DVD on Amazon. It arrives on the release date, so we order on the 3rd and get it on the 10th.

    This is exactly how Verizon has done pre-orders in the past... with the caveat that occasionally, people got them a day early...

    I can live with that, as long as I get an email from them telling me the day it is out for delivery so I can work from home that day.
