    You'll need to be eligible for an upgrade on 2/3 to pre-order on 2/3.

    I would call them and see if they can move it. IF Twitter is to be believed, there is a similar question out there for someone who is eligible on 2/6, and the response was that they would need to wait until 2/6.

But he also mentioned the 3am launch.. i feel like a lot of reps aren't to sure about the time

    i called them this morning and got it taken care of. the first time i called the lady said it was against the law for them to change the upgrade date so i hung up and called again and the second lady understood that i would be eligible on the 10th to upgrade so she gladly bumped my upgrade one day earlier to the 3rd so now its possible for me to pre order

    Yup. And GB or the Bears, both who we have lost SB's to. Would have loved the run up to a Pats/Bears. I bet Chi would have had "Super Bowl Shuffle 2.0"

    Hey Guys - Did any of you receive the email about preparing for the iPhone? I want to save my old emails and it says we need to sign up for visual voicemail and then save them to a sd card. I signed up for visual voicemail today but I can't seem to get it to work. Am I crazy? Anyone else need to save their precious voicemails?

    If you didn't have Visual Voice Mail before, signing up for it deleted any old voice mails you may have had.

    If I loose all of my precious voicemail that I have been trying to save I am going to kill someone at Verizon.

    ok. So I just called Verizon in a panic (precious vm that can NOT be replaced) and asked them about the email they sent and the csr just told me that the email is correct. I need to sign up for visual voice mail and then back up my voicemails so that I can transfer them to the iPhone. What is going on with Verizon? Just to be safe, I told her to cancel my order for visual voicemail and she acted like I was crazy. She keep reading me the instructions on the email that we got:

    If your device is Verizon Wireless Visual Voice Mail capable, please follow these steps to Save a Copy:

    1) Subscribe if you have not already done so ($2.99/month).
    2) Open Visual Voice Mail >>> Select the Message Menu >>> Options >>> Save A Copy/Archive >>> Save to SD Card or External Memory
    3) Please note: Steps may vary based on device type
    4) Once the messageis saved to the SD Card, you can transfer the message via SD Card to your computer.

    Once the audio file is saved onto your computer, you can use most PC or MAC audio players to listen to the message. If you currently do not have a working audio player, click here to download the PureVoice software to your computer to listen to your message.

    ugh!

    Visual Voicemail and the standard voicemail are on separate servers/voice mail systems the way I understand it... and if you sign up for visual voice mail, your mailbox on the old server/system is gone when you change... if you have standard voice mail, you'll either need to use the service recommended by Verizon, or - find another way to record them yourself.... you can use google voice and something like a program called "Audacity" to record using a computer... or purchase a recording interface at radio shack and dial in on a POTS phone, and record to audio cassette.

    Pre-orders start the 3rd... if you don't have the means of paying then, it might be possible to bill to your account if qualified - otherwise, you'll need some sort of payment when you pre-order, be it the 3rd - or whenever before the 10th.

    But if you don't on the 3rd the chances of getting one are not good I'd imagine.

    Once the initial pre-order quantity, whatever it is, is "spoken for" - orders continue on a back-order list, and are shipped "first on the list, first out the door" as physical stock is available- so one can "pre-order" through Feb 9th and get an approximate shipping date if there's a back-order going on.

    Or you can take your chances camping out at Verizon/Apple corporate stores

    3AM at my computer sounds so much better than 7pm-7am on the concrete waiting outside a store!
