    This leads me to believe that I will have my phone shipped before the 10th if I order on the 3rd. Thoughts?

    History tells me that with pre-orders, they typically will ship to arrive on store release date. I've not seen anything official that would make me think otherwise.

    I just REALLY hope that the "Reserved Quantity" isn't some absurd number. :/

    Nor would I. The problem I have though is, I will wait in front of a store until the cows come home, BUT I am not the primary account holder so I would have to get my parents to wait there as well, and they won't do that. If I do it online then I have all I need to do it myself. X_x

    Just got my email as well... fingers crossed that they have enough. It is Verizon though... and while I love the service and would never switch, they have a tendency of selling out of new phones immediately.

    What do you guys think the chances are of the preorder still being around at 6 am. Cause I really don't want to stay up that late.

    If you are 18+, you can ask your parents to add you to their account as a 'full access' contact. That gives you the right to sign for new phones and upgrades on their account.

    I seriously doubt there is going to be a small # of units. Will there be people who don't get one at launch? Probably!

    Reports have been that Apple has been building these since last September. I have no idea what a normal output is but, a million units wouldn't be a stretch. Verizon has nothing to gain and everything to lose by having limited units. However, history proves that the popularity of the iPhone leave some on the outside looking in but thankfully Apple typically can get more within days and not months.

    O' rly?

    I'm 20 btw.

    Now, my line IS the primary line, but it is under my dad's name. Thing is though, his name and my name are the same. How much information do they require when adding a line?

    I am not the primary line, nor the account holder. However, my mother has declared me as an account manager on our Verizon account so I can do whatever I'd like. See if your parents would feel comfortable doing the same for you.

    Also, they may want the last four digits of his social, usually photo id is not required though.

    I control all the lines anyway. It's just, back when we started the account I was <18, so they had to sign for it. Now I control all the account happenings anyway and as such all the passwords and verification information. I don't think I should have a problem if it comes down it waiting in line. I just hope it doesn't come to that. Come on VZW, don't toy with is and actually have enough in your "reserved quantities!"

    They will have enough to fulfill all requests on pre-order date is my prediction. They purposely use the term "Reserved Quantity" to arouse demand. If they announced that there was no risk of running out, more people would procrastinate, or figure "ehhh.... I have plenty of time to decide on this or something else." They want to lock as many people in as quickly as possible and have them use their upgrades as soon as possible also. Max out their pre-order as quickly as possible thus making it easier to fulfill requests on launch day for new customers. They are separating the 2 so that a mass of existing customers don't show up on launch day along with new customers. Just my opinion.

    As much as I want to believe that, I don't think they realize how huge this will be. I went to my regular SubWay today for a Footlong Sweet Onion Chicken on flatbread with the works except olives. My regular server was there and said to me "Hey! Did you hear the iPhone is coming to Verizon!?" When I am reminded about the VZW iP4 from my lunch-stop, it's big.

    You have to know this is not the case at all. They know full well how large the demand is and how large it's been for 4 years. I suspect they may actually overstate how many they anticipate coming from other devices, like android, and also how many might migrate from AT&T. I don't think they hit their anticipated mark at first, only after the first 2 weeks after launch date. I think we're fine and everyone needs to relax. I may be absolutely wrong and will happily admit so on pre-order day if needs be.

    Not much at all. They need your ID to verify you are who you say, and they need either the last 4 of the social security number of the account holder, or the password if the account has one set up on it.

    To each his own.

    We will all know on the 3rd and I'll stand by my predictions until then, as I'm sure you will.

    I'm on YouTube now watching videos from the iP4 launch on AT&T and the lines there are some of the longest I've seen, and that carrier already had a previous iPhone!

    I found a way on My Verizon to make myself an "Account manager" and did so, so I think I should be all set now.

    Indeed good sir! About the youtube videos, you will also remember even after 4 years how AT&T managed to FUBAR the release, Verizon will NOT make that same mistake. As I pointed out earlier, Verizon tries their hardest to separate themselves as far from anything AT&T as humanly possible.
