    Quick question...

    Will I be able to preorder the iPhone 6 online (on either Verizon's site or Apple's site) if I'm currently on the Verizon Edge plan, or will I have to go to the store on launch day?

    I'm currently at 25% paid on my Edge payments (you need at least 50% paid off to upgrade) and planned on paying the 25% left and upgrading. Wasn't sure if this was possible to do when preordering. Also, I assume I'd have to somehow send my current device back to Verizon...

    Yes. I just confirmed this with Verizon a few minutes ago. I have 9 lines on my account, all of them on edge in various "percent paid off". I asked if I could pre-order via Verizon Wireless online and use the edge program. I would pay the remaining balance at order time. She said correct. However, this can only be done via Verizon Wireless......not through Apple.

    Of course - what they "say" and what happens could be two different things :/

    I don't see why it will be an issue. If I go online right now and click "edge up" (on a phone I just edged three months ago), it will allow me to select a new device and when I click check out, it will ask for payment on the balance needed to bring it below the required amount for edging up. I presume that on a pre-order, this will work the same.
