    Not exactly sure what the EFT is, but I've always gladly spent the extra $70 on the 1 year contract option so I would never have to be "locked-in"

    Lets call a spade a spade here. The phone is already halfway past its yearly life cycle, and I always equate tech years to dog years.

    Plus I'm Italian and dont like to commit.
    You could always buy at full retail and REALLY not commit to anything...

    And, an Italian with that username!? What!?

    To me, a year is quite a long time to commit to a single phone.

    ETF = Early termination fee. I would think more than likely this phone would just be $70 bucks more for 1 year contact. Probably in the range of $100 - $150 more. Just my guess. And you can say that it's nearly past it's yearly cycle but people are still buying iPhone 4s on AT&T right now. What does that say if people know there will be another and still sign a 2 year contract for a device that's been out for months already. People still use iPhone 3G right now. The life cycle of the iPhone is not like other devices. Trust me. Yeah a new model is released each year but the prior year model is still very in demand. But again, do what you prefer. I still don't see the rationale though. But that's just me. Good luck though.

    My biggest fear is not being allowed to pre-order due to a glitch on VZW's part. For example, I received an email today telling me tonight was the night to preorder (good thing too, because I totally forgot. Not!). It also told me I had three lines eligible for upgrade including one with an additional discount (if I could only convince my wife to let me use it!). However, it didn't show the two lines I had the upgrade eligibility moved up! Glitch? I checked MyVerizon and those two lines show upgrade available.

    Who's right? The email or the web site? Grrrr

    all the glitches? every first model of any phone has about 2 no? i'm hesitant to get the Verizon iPhone 4 but have been waiting for this moment for quite some time. Love Verizon, love the iPhone...but there is always hesitation in buying the FIRST of anything.
    Its not actually the first though I mean it is the same as the at&t version minus the new antenna

    I dont think they are offering 1 year contract options with the iphone I may be wrong but i dont think at&t allows a 1 year contract. Im just paying full retail thats why I sold my droid x and droid 2 to cover the cost

    I've just resolved my fears. I add another line to have an upgrade ready.

    No, it wasn't free. There's a monthly fee of $9.99 that I'll have to pay and normally you have to pay a $35 activation fee, but I got it waived.
