Updated: Verizon iPhone pre-orders go relatively smoothly

TiPb asks: Are you pre-ordering the Verizon iPhone today?


First of all my network will be free soon, Second don't wait because probably be a true World Phone CMDA/GSM radios in one phone meaning the VZW phone will be a gobble phone and GSM would have HSPA + and it might not have a HomeKey.

AT&T will still be plagued with the connectivity problems you had before regardless of membership. Fact being I don't think they put up enough hardware when they switched to GSM and I think Sprint and primarily Verizon bought up all their old CDMA towers. AT&T used to have a flawless service before the switch to GSM and in some areas it's still good. But higher frequencies eat it easier when it comes to structural interference. One of my friends was in NYC last year and he said he could never get a decent signal. He's probably going to stick with AT&T because where he lives it's not so terrible since he has good line of sight to the tower. That's not to say he hasn't thought about changing to Verizon when the 5 comes out.

Also, My bad. AT&T's service still blew the goats when it came to the change over. I had AT&T at the change and just before the Cingular acquisition and it went from great to crap. I live in Suburbia though and where I work it would go from a full signal to no signal within 20 feet. We have a decent cross section of people with different services here. Verizon and Nextel work best because they both have towers on site.

hey i think you can order now i went to verizon wireless and they said start your iphone thing

Verizon's website was screwed for me, won't allow me to do my phone but when I call them they said that my phone is eligible for upgrade now but I can't do it until the 16th. wtf. Going to call back in a bit to try and get someone who maybe wants to help me.

Well done ordering and bad news is it says expected delivery date of 10 FEB 2011. Thats no fun!!

You can add lines, buy them outright, whatever you want to choose, it just requires you to login to myverizon!

its asking me to pay for it now wtf? can i just have it billed to me when i get my wireless bill?

Verizon's website was allowing orders to be made before 3am Eastern Time (or at least it did for me on the West coast). Was 1152pm on 2nd Feb and I had my order completed before 1200am on the 3rd Feb.

Ordered! Done! On the way!
The website had a few issues though. Adding a line did not give you family plan choices. Also, shipping to a business did not have a line for the company name but gave you an error that the company name was required.

Hey guys, just ordered it but stuck at the pending order confermation, is anyone still at this page or did they get further?

Apple.com store not processing orders yet... they allow you to pick a plan then force you to a "Make a reservation" page that doesn't work. No choice for shipping. APPLE FAIL.

I am stuck on shipping address page it is saying my address in invalid HELP ME PLEASE TEARS

Verizon site:
"Sorry, an error has occured.
We're working on getting this fixed as soon as we can."
Great sign...

I got the error on verizons site too for 30 minutes... Go to apple.com. It let me order in 2 minutes. If that doesn't work I feel for ya..

Did anyone else with a new every two upgrade get charged full price? I was under the impression that every who was being grandfathered in and had an upgrade eligibility prior to Jan 16, 2011 would be able to use it for the iPhone 4. I have been eligible since July 2010 and when I checked out (using verizonwireless.com) it did not apply any discounts and had me pay the full 2-year contract price of $299 for a 32 gig.
I just want to know if I did something wrong so I can cancel that order and order another one the right way to obtain my upgrade discount.

I was able to order the 32 GB for $199. $100 was deducted automatically because I participated in the every two upgrade. I am not sure why the discount was not applied to your account during the ordering process. FYI, I placed my order through the Verizon site.

For anyone else wondering or having the same problem-I just called and found out that only the primary line on the account can receive a new every two discount.

I would be if I was eligible for an upgrade. I think that's a load of bull that they're not extending it to all customers as a special promotion especially after saying that existing customers could pre-order it.

I would be tempted except I'm waiting for a CDMA/GSM world phone version. Got to have the rest-of-the-world GSM bands to work overseas. Plus at this point I'd wait for iPhone 5.

ordered at 5:30pm added a line to my family plan no problems. only gonna swap my droidx to the new line and give to my niece for personal and activating the i4 on my main line..

i was hoping if we preordered today we would get it tomm, says shipping out on the 10th...really? that dissapointing

So i pre ordered at around 11:55pm and have been searching franticly to buy a case, so i can order it tonight and get it before the phone arrives. Where are you guys buying your cases from?

ordered from verizon I got them yesterday i get 15% of accessories but I wanted an otterbox defender they dont have them yet for the V-iphone

hit that submit button at verizon over a dozen times and no luck. I'll take that as a sign and wait until the 10th, or the 5 even.

what part is stuck in 2007? the lack of GPS? The HD video recording? The high resolution screen? The larger capacities? The micro gyroscope?

I'm good with AT&T. I'm not giving up talk and web at the same time for anyone! Priceless for work; discussing emails that you send back and forth, and for play being able to surf and play web based games while on a boring a** call.
You can't even send picture mail while on a call. That sucks too.

No problems w/ AT&T here in Atlanta. I'm not a traveler so I can't speak for quality else where. For now, I'm staying w/ AT&T. I've still got a year on my contract anyhow.

My order status has changed to:
Ace Order No: 1227940
Ace Order Location: 0867021
Order Status: Your order has been shipped.
Expected Ship Date:
Tracking No:

I can't sign a two year contract on a phone that's 7 months old. If there was an option for a one year contract, I definitely would have ordered one...

Alright alright... I'm you've won... Each of my family members will buy one of these amazing phones. Love the iphone...hate that other carrier... so getting an Iphone it on Verizon is an easy choice.
