    Just ignore the spam. We delete it as fast as we can. Use the little triangle icon in a spam post to report it, and we can get to it faster, otherwise we'll get it the next pass through the forums.
    Curious, why do you have to wait 60 seconds between reporting Spam?

    ordered mine this morning and have been checking the site all day to see if it gets shipped today, ordered with overnight delivery at midnight so I am really hoping I get it tomorrow (2/10).

    had to give up my 3GS when the company switched to Verizon and am sooooo happy I can go back to the iPhone. I have been using android for the last year and while I really like the phone and love digging around in Android (HTC Incredible running custom Gingerbread ROM) there are just some things that work better in iOS and damn the screen is amazing!!

    Commenting on it doesn't help. As we discussed above, if you see spam, report it. I can usually get to it within a few minutes unless I'm sleeping, and I have a different sleep schedule than most of our other mods.

    I got mine at 9AM on Monday... Have my Droid Incredible setting aside for awhile. I've never held any iPhone before & as a Mac user of 22+ years was itching to get it. Very happy with the build quality (one reason I prefer Macs).

    having issues activating. apparently my phone doesn't exist and verizon can't find it in their system. talked to a customer service rep, tech support, and now i'm waiting for apple customer service to get on line.
    I felt like a goof. iTunes always has the "Logoff" option in the menu enabled so I thought I was logged on. Went through activating the phone, it activated but would not get off the "Accept" terms window in iTunes which kept me from setting up my phone. It was weird as the phone was activated and I was talking to a CSR on it but couldn't sync or do anything with iTunes. I finally realized that I did not sign into iTunes & off I went. Doh!

    I finally got everything up and running after talking to four Verizon reps (only one of which knew anything) and an apple rep. I LOVE this phone. The retina display is to die for. May become a permanent iPhone user....but I also said the same thing about blackberry and I ditched them after a year and a half
    Kind of funny with these sites tied together. I started out on CrackBerry when I had my BB's, then to Android Central (keeping my Incredible) and now here. Other than the spam I'm trying to ignore, I'm sure TiPb will be another good place to swap help amongst each other.

    Personally, since my Droid Incredible is rooted I'm trying VERY hard not to jailbreak my iPhone. Not sure of the benefits but I'm sure I'll learn of them (although I should avoid the topic if I'm going to try and keep myself from jailbreaking my iPhone).

    Local news here in Oregon had a lot of people waiting in line but I too have seen reports (even tweets with photos from Verizon themselves) of little to no one at the VZW stores. But why focus on the negative, we have ours!

    Hey just becoming a member, glad to be in! I'm Lucy and I'm inspired by life, I'm a fan of working and being healthful

    I've been involved in some other forums and have uncovered this spot to have significantly more desirable material, so it tends to make sense to finally submit!

    PS, how do I make myself have a cool title like some people here have?
    Hi Lucy,

    Due to the spamming there is a minimum post count of 10 before you can access your User Control Panel (and this does not counts posts in the Off Topic section). It was in the signup e-mail you received after you validated your account (at the very bottom & easily overlooked).

    Enjoy!

    This thread has become so clogged with SPAM, I finally gave up on reporting it all, especially with the 60 second rule...

    So we went by the Verizon store this afternoon. (Detroit area) They still have the iPhone in stock several days after launch so I'd say if you don't have one yet you needn't bother ordering online or going to the Apple store, you can go to the Verizon store to pick one up.

    Sadly I have a little etf problem. Ok it's a huge $325 etf problem or I'd switch back. The only thing I'm wondering about is battery life. I find my At&t iPhone 4 gets down to 50 % by the end of the day. Considering that (from what I hear) CDMA is supposed to use more juice, I wonder if I'd have charge problems with the Verizon phone? So I ALMOST got a VZW iPhone today. The rumor mill has cranked up again about a less expensive model. I hope it's true this time. I like my iPhone 4 but my wife wouldn't let me pick one up for her today because of the cost (including the mandatory data plan) so I'm hoping for two things: tiered data on VZW and a lower cost model soon.

    That's cause there's a million times more traffic on TiPb than on PreCentral.

    Actually, you only need to report one post in the thread and just mention that there are a bunch of others. Saves you time and energy.

    With some of the heavy spam-attracting threads, we look at them regularly, and always look above/below the reported post so that we can zap 'em all.

    But yea, it has been a nightmare lately!

    I'm using Tapatalk now Alli so I cannot tell if you're a mod but if so, why aren't all these spam posts deleted. IMO the mods need to step up bigtime.

    We delete them as fast as we can, and trust me - you don't see the majority of them. If you would report them, rather than comment on them, we can zap 'em faster.

    Thanks!
