If you didn't manage to snag a Verizon iPhone during the pre-orders -- which have since sold-out and resulted in the most successful sales in Verizon history -- your next chance is Thursday February 10 when the Verizon iPhone launch goes public. Unlike pre-orders, the Verizon iPhone will then be available to everyone and in addition to online, it will be available at Apple Retail, Verizon Wireless, and Best Buy stores.
Once again we recommend shopping early:
Online you get a head start but may face server issues and will definitely have to wait for delivery, which could take a couple days. Line up and you get the full iPhone launch day experience and immediate access to your new iPhone, but may risk them selling out before you get yours.
Which way are you leaning? Or are you one of the luck ones sitting outside waiting for FedEx already?
