    A rumor that has been going on for a while. Now, honestly, can you see thousands of people getting their brand new phone, opening it up and not being able to use it for days? Can you say PR NIGHTMARE?

    Naaaa... don't beleive it. But if that is the case, then they are fulfilling their promise of the 10th. At least I don't have to wait in line at the V store come the 10th.

    No, I don't believe because it's bovine squeeze.

    Probably a rumor started by an fanboi of AT&T or Droids just to get people worked up over nothing.

    Besides, Verizon' systems are going to be taxed enough on launch day with people buying in stores - do you think they'd be stupid enough to make it worse by not allowing pre-orders to not activate when they get their phones

    I'd have no doubt that you could call VZW on the 15th and you'd get a rep that would say "I'm sorry sir, the iPhone is only on AT&T, but would you like to buy a Droid X?" Yeah, that's how bad they've been.

    But an iPhone won't have problems But all Verizon employees should have had the iPhone training... even if it's not release day, they should know that stuff.

    agreed, besides do they really wanna risk alienating their "loyal customers" buy pulling this, for some that may be the last straw for them to say f-it and cancel service.

    My friend at the vzw store said they can be activated as soon as you get them. And the Apple store I just left said the same thing. We are good to go!

    Plus, since I bet half of these first iPhones are from a feature phone, earlier access to higher fees!

    If it's already activated then the person should go to apple for any issues. I would advise anyone who is having issues go to Apple for anything besides insurance related issues. But for technical or troubleshooting, go to apple.

    I for one would believe this IF iTunes had not already been updated to support the CDMA iPhone. Since it has? I think we get it, we can activate it.

    And I would also go right to Apple for any support issues. You can even call them in your first 90 days (or 2 years if you buy Apple Care). They don't care where you bought it, heck, they don't even care IF you bought it or got it as a door prize, they will help you. It is one of their products. You can make an appointment for the Genius Bar prior to going in to a store, which I HIGHLY recommend. There will be lines and wait, especially during peak times.

    Easiest way to make an appointment is to visit:

    Apple Retail Store

    Find your store, select it, then on the store's page, click "Make a reservation"

    This can also be done from your iPhone. Yes, there's an app for that.

    Apple Store for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    Closest Apple store for me is a 2 hour drive North or South.... if I have a defective device issue I can get assistance at any 1 of 3 corporate Verizon stores nearby.

    I am currently with Sprint but not for much longer. With Sprint if you order online you have to return the phone that way if it is defective rather than go to a store as I understand it. I never had a prob.

    With Verizon can you buy online and go to a store to get a new one if there is a warranty issue? (That is even assuming they have them in stock, and are not sold out.)

    Yes, corporate stores will handle warranty replacement issues - if they don't have any on-hand, they can arrange overnight replacement.

    I'm not expecting any issues - my other Apple devices have been very reliable
