    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.
    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:
    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.
