Verizon iPhone Pre-Orders to Start at 3am ET on February 3rd, Offering AT&T Trade Ins



Verizon has begun sending out information to corporate customers with more details about their iPhone launch. Verizon is offering existing customers a chance to buy the Verizon iPhone on February 3rd, a week before the general public.

According to the email we've received, Verizon will begin pre-order sales at 3am Eastern on February 3rd.
Quote:
- Make sure you have your My Verizon self-serve account set-up online. Orders can only be placed through your my Verizon account. You can register/setup your account atů https://myaccount.verizonwireless.com/accessmanager/public/controller?action=displayRegistration

- On February 3rd at 3am EST, Verizon Wireless will allow our current customers to order upgrades or new lines to their accounts through your My Verizon online account (make sure you have registered before the 3rd).
The email also indicates that the pre-sale inventory is limited, so when that inventory is depleted, customers will have to wait until the February 10th public launch date.

Verizon is also allowing some existing AT&T iPhone customers to trade-in their iPhone for credit. We aren't sure if this will be offered to non-corporate accounts, but the price list is as follows:
Quote:
iPhone 2G - 16GB: $60
iPhone 3G - 16GB: $105
iPhone 3Gs 32GB: $160
iPhone 4- 16GB: $280
iPhone 4 - 32GB: $360
Customers, of course, could do better selling their iPhones themselves, though this could provide a relatively low-hassle way to switch carriers. The prices listed here are higher than Verizon's normal tradein program. New Verizon iPhones will be shipped 2 day FedEx by default or optionally next day air.

That's trade-in value. They will buy that phone from you when you sign up for Verizon.

So the ETF will be $50 to get out of my AT&T contract. Do we still get the subsidized price of $199?

This is if it is for regular consumers as well.

Also, what if I bring in my original, 3G, and 4? Do I get $445?

I believe that those are trade in values.

This probably isn't a good sign for Feb. 3 that MyVerizon is crawling right now, probably from everyone logging in.

Yes it does. It came out about 6 months later. It was exactly the same, except for 16 GB. It was around the time they discontinued the 4GB.

The 4 GB got killed back in September 2007 when they lowered the price to $399 for the 8 GB. 16 GB model was added in February of 2008.

I think you are right. Right after I submitted my post I questioned myself. I was too lazy to look it up though.
