    The number I heard was more on the 200-300k range for the pre-order.
    So say Verizon has 90,000,000 customers. I know they won't all switch, but let's say they did. You realize that would be not enough to cover LESS than 0.5% right?

    Let's say 10% want to switch, 9,000,000. That sounds reasonable.

    That is a grand to total of LESS than 3% of the bit that wants iPhones can preorder. That can't be right, or God help us all.

    I'd simply go with a Droid X and forget Apple. You can't offer something and not have it. "Look we have iphones for sale!" No you don't, you have the promise of an iphone. Give us your money now, we'll give you our product when we get around to it. I don't think so. If I don't get confirmation of an iphone on the 3rd, I'm going right up to the store and picking up a Droid on the 3rd, I'm tired of stressing over something so silly as a d*** phone.

    Negative, mine will be as fresh as a new born baby, but thank you regardless.

    It wouldn't be impossible that everyone doesn't get one. Many people on AT&T couldn't even get through to pre-order and had to stand in that line. And people were turned away at many stores. Even AT&T stores didn't get any on launch because Apple cut their supply so they could fulfill their orders and stock up their stores. Even on Apple's site after the pre ordering began the ship time was 3 weeks. So it's quite possible that they will run out of pre-orders and very likely and that those that miss out will have to go to their nearest Apple store.

    Looks like VZWSupport Twitter is replying to a weekend worth of confusion. To sum it up: Yes, you can preorder at full retail pricing and expect to receive it on or by 2/10
