Readers who ordered the Verizon iPhone online this week are letting us know they're starting to receive their shipment notifications. The original shipping estimate was for Feb. 18 but that now seems to have been a little on the conservative side.

Anyone else get their Verizon iPhone shipping notice yet? If so, let us know whether you ordered from Apple or Verizon, when you got it, and where you are. We're also keeping track in the Verizon iPhone Forum so head on over for more!
