    I was wondering if anyone had any details about the Feb 3 preorder for existing customers. Is is through Apple or Verizon? Is it online, over the phone, or in-store? Thanks!

    Still no word on what time yet, as far as I know. I signed up for email updates from Verizon for more info. I want my Verizon iPhone man! My BlackBerry/iPod Touch combo just ain't cutting it anymore.

    Excuse my ignorance regarding how the whole pre-order process works, but I've heard that, in the past, if you pre-ordered through AT&T you would have to pick up the phone from their store or have it shipped to you. And if you pre-ordered through Apple, you would pick it up from an Apple store. Is this correct?

    And do you choose a specific store to pick it up from? Or do you just go to the nearest location on launch morning and stand in the pre-order line?

    im glad verizon customers get to pre-order, but im afraid of crashing on the 3rd, just like at& and did when the iphone 4 originally began taking pre-orders

    why isn't apple taking Verizon pre-orders as as well as Verizon like they did with att? do they not want their website to go down like it did on the iPhone 4 launch day? or is it the deal they made with verizon that verizon handles all sales and service of the iphone on their network?

    What about the people that currently have one line with an upgrade and want to change to a family plan with 2 lines and get an iphones for both lines. How would we go about doing that.

    Your better off asking verizon wireless this as ultimately only they can answer this question

    Really there's no details available, yet.

    All Verizon has said is existing customers can order theirs from stock on the 3rd prior to Apple (online/retail) or Verizon retail stores and any new customers.

    They said the week prior is when they'll have everything out and locked in so just keep an eye out starting the 23rd for details (I'm guessing info will go out either Monday or Friday next week).

    The prices described above for $650 to $750 is this for buying the phone while still under contract. Because its $199 and $299 for verizon customers with upgrades to new phone correct?

    Yes, that's right. The $649 and $749 prices are for retail, meaning if you are not eligible to upgrade and still want to purchase an iPhone.

    At least AT&T gives you the option of an early upgrade just that it is a little more than the Subsidized price as long as you spend over $100 per month on your bill for 12 months.

    Verizon is really going to be very specific with their upgrades, I mean $649 or $749 wow and now you have to wait the full 24 months with no discounts anymore? Glad I switched to AT&T even though I can upgrade every 12 I am happy waiting 18.

    I emailed Verizon, and they said you will be able to add a line during the preorder. So you should be good, as long as you have at least one line on Verizon.

    Tried to get data pricing out of her, but she said it hasn't been announced yet.

    I contacted verizon the other day about the iphone and slipped in the data question. The man told me it would be the same price... 30$ = Unlimited.

    Could have been a slip up by him or maybe he just doesn't know what hes talkin about :eek:

    I called Verizon and was told it was 30 dollars for unlimited data also for the iPhone and that the wifi hot spot was not an extra charge.

    the price is going to be $599 and $699 full retail. That's what it said on Apple's site, see the attachment.

    If this really is the case, I'll be happier than a pig in a blanket. Hell, I'd take the iPhone 3G on this plan if it included this!

    Those prices are for the current iPhone 4 on AT&T, right? Who's to say it will be exactly the same with the Verizon iPhone? It's all speculation until we get official pricing. It's probably safe to assume it won't be less than $600 for the 16gb, but it certainly could be more!

    Been expecting that e-mail too. But it looks like were going to have to wait till the week prior.

    When can I purchase iPhone?

    iPhone 4 will be available for pre-order to Verizon Wireless customers only, on a “first come, first serve” basis via, on or around February 3rd 2011 – details to be confirmed a week prior by Verizon Wireless. New and existing customers can purchase in select channels on February 10th 2011.

    I was told the opposite. I'd have to wait until the 10th to add a line. I guess we'll wait and see.

    No, those are the prices given on Apple's site specifically when you check your upgrade eligibility for a Verizon iPhone.

    I can see wifi hotspot as free...what will not be free is the 5GB tethering plan you need to add in order to use the wifi hotspot feature.
