    you have to activate thru itunes first on the line it was ordered from then swap the esn#. I called will i was activating the phone took 10 min.
    By any chance were you switching lines back on a pre-exiting blackberry? Anyone had any experience with that yet?

    I noticed on ordering that I was dropping my "blackberry enterprise data plan" and now will want to make sure I get that back on my main line.

    Worried if I activate thru iTunes first it may screw something up - probably just my scarring from being a long time BB user

    PS - got mine in San Jose, CA at 11:27am - wife is patiently waiting for me to activate it later.

    Just activated my VERIZON iPHONE!!!! Have been a BlackBerry user for 4 years now.......I had been carrying around a ipod touch for over a year, and was excited when I heard Big Red was finally going to carry it. Now I don't have to carry around two different devices. I'm happy to join another fantastic blog. (NO MORE crackberry.com)

    Mine arrived at 1:15, but I got a bit of a shock after opening the box when I saw that the getting started folder had a "guia de activacion de tu iPhone 4" showing. After I took it out warily I noticed it was bilingual. Strange that they had the Spanish side up rather than the English.

    Received my Verizon iPhone in rural NJ at about 10:30a this morning. All apps and music loaded, the phone is AWESOME!!!! (coming from a Blackberry Tour).

    One funny thing to note. In Verizon's haste to ship my phone they put someone elses phone in my shipping box. So when I activated the phone I accepted someone elses contract and was live on someone elses phone number. I quickly called Verizon and they moved the MEID for the phone I received to my account. Not sure how they will handle the issue for the person who got the phone that was intended for me.

    Mine was supposed to be delivered by noon... I waited until 1pm... And then the status on the UPS website changed from "out for delivery" to "In Transit"... So I called UPS.. said it had been put on hold by the shipper.. Called Big Red... was told that they were not to be delivered by UPS until the 10th. Said their system is not ready for the iphone and it is in my best interest to wait until the 10th. Would have been nice to know this was going to happen so I didn't waste my whole day. I think what really happened was they were not ready for the amount of activations they got today and its messing up their network.. So all of us west coasters are getting screwed.. Well I said it the other day.. if I get it on Monday my expectations will have been exceeded.. Guess what.. They aren't!

    Received mine (Houston area) around 230 today. Activated easily but had an issue with the VZ contract transfer app.

    The Verizon iphone 4 is HSPA+ capable and it has two antennas, not one like ATT

    probably going to be the same design for the iphone 5 for att

    At this point I am not sure of anything.. UPS said it will still be delivered today.. but they couldn't tell me when.. But that the shipper had placed a hold on it.. Verizon said they put a hold on all shipments that hadn't been delivered because they weren't supposed to go out until the 10th. That their network is not ready until then.. I don't believe that either.. So I am still sitting here waiting.

    I'm with you, sounds like more BS. What on earth are they going to do in 3 days that will have them going from not ready at all to being completely ready?

    Hope you get your phone today!

    Mine showed up with our UPS guy at 2:30. I had to wait until I was done with work at 4:30 to open up that box. I'm now all activated and synced, and even made a call to my boyfriend. Right now I'm downloading the software update while eating dinner and browsing the forums.

    Last I heard, one of my co-workers was still waiting for his to show up via FedEx.

    I couldn't be more pissed at Verizon. I called ups and they said my package has been put on hold. They don't know when it will be released for delivery. For some reason Verizon wouldnt allow it for delivery. I missed a whole day of work to be able to sign for the package...

    I am right there with you.. The other issue I have is my wife's phone isn't working at all. I would have gone with a replacement phone but since we were gettting the Iphone's "Monday" I waited... It wouldn't be so bad if they had all just been forthright in the info.. AND for the fact that everyone else is getting their's
