I tried searching and it looks like in 2011 Verizon preorders shipped very quickly. Does anyone remember how preorders from Verizon vs. Apple compared in previous years? I would like to switch to Edge for my 2 new iPhone 6 but it doesn't seem that I can order from Apple and do Edge. If Verizon ships preorders promptly I will order from Verizon. If not I will forget about Edge and just order from Apple.
