    My guess would be only via Verizon as I haven't heard any news coming from Apple stores.

    I had another question - is the only way to pre-order by ordering via the internet at 3am EST on Verizon?

    I called Apple this morning, and the sales rep told me that you would be able to pre-order from Apple on the 3rd at 3AM EST. So hopefully the guy I was talking to, knew what he was talking about.

    He is probably correct, however, it will still probably be via your cell phone number etc.

    Verizon credit

    I have a $50 credit if I order a new smartphone, since I've had my current feature phone for over three years. They really want me to upgrade, so I plan to order the iPhone 4 on the 3rd. through Verizon. If I have to pay with a credit card on the spot, I will hassle, hassle hassle them to give me the $50 credit on my account. Assessories, data plan credits, whatever, I want them to honor the bait they are offering me to get a new smartphone.

    Lol. That is not spam - it's just irrelevant to the topic.

    Not spam

    Sorry some of you took my first reply for Spam. I didn't mean it that way. What some asked is if you can also order the iPhone 4 from Apple February 3, or only from Verizon. I merely meant I will order from Verizon because I will be more likely to get my $50 credit for doing so -- it should only cost me $149, in other words. Anyway, we are all anxiously waiting for this moment. I've been holding off upgrading for over a year since I first heard Verizon would carry the iPhone.

    Apples website plainly states qualified Verizon customers can pre-order from Apple on the 3rd. I have spoken with 4 Apple supervisors who have clearly stated that YES you can pre-order on the 3rd. You can plainly type in your Verizon info on the eligibility page on Apple and it will give you your eligible date and pricing info as well as your full retail price.

    You could pre-order the AT&T iPhone from both AT&T and Apple.

    If you ask any Verizon rep they will tell you no because Verizon wants to get that extra $50 if you happen to be paying full retail.

    If you are asking an Apple rep and they are telling you that you cannot, that is disturbing. Or maybe they are so over run with these questions that they are borrowing some of Verizon's reps?

    I wish people who did not know would not throw something out there just to satisfy people. An I don't know is perfectly acceptable in a situation when so much is unknown.

    I hear you. I get that almost everywhere. I called Geeksquad once and they told me an answer. Then i called another just to make sure it was right and they had a totally different answer. I mean it is bestbuy but they could at least look it up.

    I think all anyone really needs to do is go to Apple.com and look at the Verizon iPhone page where it states "Qualified Verizon Wireless customers will also have the exclusive opportunity to pre-order iPhone 4 online on February 3, ahead of general availability."

    I don't know why everyone has to think this is all so shrouded in mystery. It's business as usual for a ****ing cellular device. Not some secret nuclear rocket launch.

    Why WOULDN'T you be able to pre-order it from Apple? It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure it out. But, maybe if a brain surgeon came along and said it, then some of you may be more apt to believe it.

    FACT IS you can pre-order it from APPLE on 02/03/11.
