    I don't think there will be a choice. They'll ship overnight on Feb 9th FedEx - and you'll get it on the 10th.

    Once they go through the stock - you'll get an estimated delivery date at purchase time when ordering on-line.
    For what it's worth, I've had it confirmed by two sources I trust that have been reliable in the past, as well as an email from Verizon Customer Service that the target delivery date for the initial quantity of pre-order phones will be shipped so as to arrive to the customers on Feb 10.

    Me too, you know since I'm trained to spot these things and all now.

    Glad I'm not the only one who talked to a spam bot.

    You know, I was kind of thinking that when I posted, but I try to look for the good in people I suppose. :'( Except for kch...he is a party pooper.

    Hey just becoming a member, glad to be in! I'm glad to be right here as a final point, heading to publish because I've been reading through a long time.

    I've been concerned in some other forums and have found this destination to have substantially far better content, so it can make sense to last but not least submit!

    BTW, what can I do to change the time zone for my account? It's kind of weird having the time like 5 hours off lol

    I just joined, but I promise I'm not a spammer

    I called the Verizon number that highlife mentioned, and didn't get much information. She said the only thing she could confirm was that the phone will be available for preorder on 2/3/2011 at 3:01 a.m. eastern time. She said all phones will be delivered on or before 2/10/2011 regardless of order in which the order was received. That gives me some hope it'll be before the 10th, but I'm thinking overnight having it the 4th is not going to happen

    I have a hard time believing they'd ship them on the 10th just because that negates having a preorder, unless they're doing it to lighten the load on the 10th only... you'd think Verizon would try to spread out activating/dealing with all of these new phones/customer. Also, haven't the rumors pointed to Verizon only having so many iPhones on the pre-order date, and that if you miss it you'll have to WAIT until the 10th? Sounds to me like they'll ship em between the 3rd and 10th. I have no sources, though just my speculation.

    If you go to verizon's website and go to the iphone FAQs, they say this:

    If I pre-order iPhone 4, when will I receive it?

    iPhone 4 orders will arrive on or before February 10, 2011.

    Usually when ordering a phone from Verizon's website they overnight them...but I doubt we'd get them on the 4th or 5th. I would be ecstatic...but I am not holding my breath.

    Here's a better question...who's waking up at 3am to order it?!?!?!

    Also, for all of Verizon's new incoming customers...FedEx comes and the box will require a signature. If no one is home to sign, you won't get the box. Happens to me everyyyyy time! But, on the up side, you can pick it up at the FedEx location after 4pm or whatever is specified on the tag they leave on your door.

    I can't wait...I hope the site doesn't shut down. Does anyone know if it's better to order from Verizon's website or Apple's? Can you actually preorder from apple?

    I really don't understand this poll. There most likely will not be any shipping options because they will try to get all preorders delivered by the 10th. So there will be no overnight shipping if you order on the 3rd. You won't get it on the 4th. As with the 3GS and iPhone 4 launch for AT&T there were no shipping options. Everyone will receive the same day unless some get lucky or unlucky.

    I think pre-order is JUST Verizon's but not sure.

    I started a thread about that and the general consensus is that you can only pre-order from Verizon.

    I created that thread for people under the impression that it would ship out the day of the 3rd, which I'm still not convinced that it won't. If we won't get it until the 10th then it obviously won't make a difference, but when we have a forum for a phone that hasn't come out yet, all we can do is speculate.

    Not necessarily, the benefit of pre-ordering on the 3rd is to guarantee you will even get one, not that you will have one before the 10th. Unlike existing Verizon customers, the general public will not be guaranteed they will even get one should supplies run out on or after the 10th though I highly doubt it.

    Cool. Preordering the iPhone or any other device doesn't mean on any level that a person gets it before the actual release. It just ensures that the person will have one at release. I'm not sure why anyone would think if they ordered on the 3rd and VZW or Apple will immediately ship it out so people can get them on the 4th or 5th. Bottom line is if anyone gets it before the 10th, it would be by accident where the company doing the deliveries actually delivered by mistake. Preordering doesn't give anyone access to the device sooner than everyone just gives them the ability to make sure they will have one.

    I understand what it means, but there have been convincing reasons on both sides. I'm just REALLY hoping it's before the 10th.
