    Same here. Pre-orders are supposed to start online at 12AM PST per the Verizon site. I spoke to a Verizon rep on the phone and he indicated that the call centers we're taking orders at 12AM local time but I have my doubts this is true. I think it will be 12AM PST everywhere.

    I will be ordering tonight as well. For the past two releases, I've gone through the Verizon site and have had no problems so I imagine it will go smoothly. I'm planning on getting the rose gold 256 GB 7.

    Any chance we'll see a trade in deal or something special? I'll be setting my alarm and preordering through the website or via phone. Two years ago I called because the website wasn't loading.

    So I went to Verizon to ask some questions because I'll be switching from AT&T to Verizon, and apparently they are actually accepting Pre-orders at this moment in store. Only problem is that the manager will be in store at night and entering our orders. They had us pay 200 bucks down payment to secure and 100% guarantee that we'll get it next Friday.

    I'd check your local verizon store if they are accepting the pre-orders. Apparently there's already 9 pre-orders at verizon store that I went to.

    So I just pre-ordered 2 iPhone 7 Plus 128 GB model, I pre-ordered the matte black and my wife ordered the Rose Gold.

    I'll be placing my order on the Verizon Wireless website tonight at 3AM ET, like I've done for several iPhones previously, all of which arrived on release day. Easy peasy.

    How is this working if you choose to pay by monthly for your upgrade?

    Similar question; can you preorder if you're doing the device turn in/upgrade? We bought last year and plan to turn in for an upgrade.

    You'll want to be logged in to your Verizon account and it should allow you to preorder it as an upgrade. If you have the full 50% paid off, you'll just have to pay the first month's installment tonight. Any particular concern?

    Yup. You can preorder the phone tonight and they send the stuff to return the old phone with the new one.

    Nice, how is the switch going to work? I called Verizon and the rep was willing to call me sometime after 3AM EST to put the orders in. Told him i'd order and then he gave me a link to a rep site and his verizon email to send him confirmation numbers, etc. We are also switching from ATT, my phone is paid off but doing the up to $650 deal for the wifes phone since she owes on it.

    Well the rep at the store did a quick credit check and got approved, but my service won't start till I pick up the device and activate it. I don't qualify for the $650 as my AT&T account isn't tied to any contracts or any payments and I always have purchased the phone outright and there is nothing for me to owe for AT&T. They did have me put down $200 per phone down x 2 (as I had pre-ordered one for my wife). as a temp hold to secure the device and that when they get the device they will contact me that it's available to pick up.

    I did choose to get the temp. number which will be given to me at pick up but will end up porting my number over.

    Is there any way to edit the title of this thread to have the green "carrier" tag so this thread can be found more easily?

    Can you upgrade through Apple even if you have to pay to the 50 percent mark before you can upgrade or do I have to go through Verizon?

    I'm pretty sure that only the OP can edit the title.

    Do they sell out really fast? I'm setting an alarm but wondering what my chances are of actually getting to pre-order one

    If you use Verizon's payment plan, you'll need to go through the Verizon site.

    Last year I was able to get in and out on the Verizon site in about 10 minutes. The phone went on sale about 10 minutes before it was supposed to be available. The year before, it took me about 40 minutes to actually get in and complete the order but in both instances, my phone arrived on launch day.

    Just saw that too. Wonder which iPhones will qualify? Just the 6s? The 6 has shown a $300 trade in value for weeks.
