So, I was somehow able to begin the pre-order process at 1:56AM my time (4 minutes early) and I completed the entire process by 2AM. I have never experienced an Apple preorder that pain free. I suppose it was because I got it in early, but literally it was like loading a normal webpage. No strain whatsoever on my computer.

Anywho, now that I was able to get my order in, I was scared about not receiving an email. I also checked in MyAccount in Verizon for recent orders placed and it didn't show up. However, I'm certain this is a cache issue and Verizon will update once they totally process your pre-order.

To confirm they received your order, visit:
http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/support/order-status

https://preorder.verizonwireless.com/iconic/iconic/screens/IconicSearchInit.do <<< use this one


This will at least confirm they have received your pre-order and that it is currently processing (hence, why it isn't showing up under MyAccount > Recent Orders). Hope this helps and good luck to everyone!

I didn't get a confirmation email either but that's normal. My credit card however, hasn't been charged yet. I don't think they charge until it is actually shipped. At least that's how it's been in the past with Verizon.

But yeah, Verizon was smooth compared to ATT and Apple

Should've just chose some random plan checked out immediately. A quick phone call with Verizon will have the plan switched real quick.

I got lucky. I was waiting around at like 11:58 and decided to check out the verizon website and saw preorders started. I went through as a test to see if it was real and it felt like normal, no strain. Got my order in by 12:04. All my friends can't get theirs because they were too late. Never attempting to preorder from apple again. Carriers have much less strain.

Got the confirmation email at 210AM, approximately 12 minutes after I ordered.

And now at 229AM I received a text message from Verizon asking me to authorize the order by replying: Yes/No.

Got my email confirmation now.

I have a question for you guys. When ordering from the Verizon site, it asked me if I wanted to keep my sim card or get a new one. Thought this was interesting.

I actually had to order the upgrade through my Dad's phone number since he was the only one with the upgrade. I selected to have the device keep the same sim card as before, and in reality I'm just going to stick my sim card in from my iPhone 5 when the iPhone 6 arrives. Hoping I won't run into any activation issues due to this Sim card selection option.

My order seemingly went through but when I check that link it says there was an error and to check the email they sent but I haven't received my confirmation email.

However, if I go back and act like I'm going to upgrade the same line it says that I already have a device ordered for that line.

If I'm not mistaking all iPhones come with a brand new simcard inside the box... So you can activate the new simcard on your line by calling 611

Are you sure about this? Lol I've been hovering over the Submit button with a plan I don't want, on hold with Verizon.

My order is acknowledged and confirmed according to the link. But mine says ship date: 9/19 on the link. I'm assuming it means delivery, because I ordered it quickly and the confirmation says delivery by 9/19.

In the last pre order people that had later delivery dates at checkout still received the phone on launch day with everyone else.

Says my order is in process. Does anyone know if it's ok that I used my debit card but the billing name is my mom's? It wouldn't let me change the name because she's the account owner. The addresses are all the same though.

In my experience with online ordering forms the Billing Name is really the last point of verification that is ever checked, so I'm (fairly) certain you will have no issues with the order.
