Does this mean those of us who pre-order on 3AM will get the iPhone before the 10th? Maybe even on Saturday or Monday? I sure hope so!

I don't like that the eligibility check is taken down from apples website. I hope that its still 599 for retail and not the 649 verizon is doing.

It does say on or before Feb 10th so I'm assuming that's a possibility.

Wow... It's been 4 and a half years for Verizon people to finally get their hands on an iPhone.... Waiting a few more hours isn't the end of the world !!
At least you won't have to stand in line for 12 hours!!

So I guess I will be ordering from Apple tonight because they always allow you to print out one of those pre-sign slips for FedEx. I wonder if Apple will start accepting pre-orders the same time as Verizon at 3am?

Here is to hoping that VZ won't f-up the ordering process like Apple & AT&T did with the iPhones 3GS and 4!

Indeed. This is getting pretty ridiculous, considering most of us already have this phone for a while now.

Yeah well the 94 million of us on Verizon have NEVER had one before! So just let us have our fun. If you don't like it no one is forcing you to read MR!!!

Anxiously awaiting the first ViPhone 4 owner to b.itch and moan in a couple months that Apple & Verizon scammed them once the iPhone 5 is announced with new exclusive features. That will be hi-lar-ious.

Seriously, nice to see competition in the U.S. market but anyone who buys an iPhone 4 now -- I just don't understand. I know many are experiencing the hellstorm of a generation now but really, June will be here soon. Just be patient. You waited this long for a ViPhone. A few more months won't kill ya.

And what happens when the phone that sounds out in June is again 3G GSM only? They won't go to LTE in 2011. They also won't discontinue/replace a device four months later (iPhone 4 CDMA) - it simply wouldn't be good business in so many aspects. I bet they go on a 6 month - 6 month update cycle until an LTE iPhone 4G is announced in 2012.

People who think like you will never buy any new technology at all because you are too concerned of having the "best". If the iPhone 5 that comes out in the summer is a huge upgrade from the iPhone 4 (which I doubt it will be) you can just sell your iP4 on eBay and get most of the money back.
