    So, with the brand new Verizon iPhone release upon us all, what do you guys think are the most important things we should do to prepare for this event?

    My thoughts:
    1) Research the best/most useful apps to download
    2) Compile a list of iPhone accessories to purchase (cases, fm transmitters, etc)
    3) Manage my music library and have it ready to load onto phone

    Feel free to add to the list everyone!

    Why do you have a top ten with only 3 things on it? Lol I'm jk. But to add to this I would say:
    4) Organize contacts from old phone to put on new iphone (I have a lot of contacts to get rid of)
    5) Make some new playlists for my phone
    6) Find cool games to play
    7) Find a cool lock screen/wallpaper

    While I won't add to the list, I wonder how many more MRF users we will have when the VZ iPhone launches. Seeing both of you as "newbies", welcome! :)

    11. Use SMS log of Mark The Spot usage for the past several months to argue for reduction of $325 At&t ETF fee. I think 3 dropped/failed calls a month since September that I wasn't too busy to use MTS to report is a LOT. When I was on VZW I had maybe 1 dropped call every several years.

    4. Put it in a case so that you can sell it to buy the next iPhone in four months.

    1-10 are already taken, but for a few people I've been helping get ready, these were two important ones, IMO:

    • Switch from using POP to IMAP as your email protocol
    • Switch from a desktop RSS reader to google reader w/desktop client
    Both in the hopes of having all mail and articles synced. Obvious to many people, but if you don't know, could be very helpful.

    #11; Ask about the return policy, once you realize it is the same old outdated phone from last year, and you will want to replace it for a new Android phone.

    Or go to #12; save your money and wait for the next gen iPhone5 due out in five months, that will truly be a new phone.

    #28 Buy an absurd amount of apps of which you will use 1/10th.
    Did that before I got my AT&T iPhone 4, been able to hold out before Vz iPhone since I have so darn many apps already.

    Must resist feeding troll. :(

    +1. I set up a Gmail account for my wife a few months ago in anticipation for the Verizon iPhone. She's slowly been transferring all of her things over to the account from her Hotmail since then. It's going to be such a nice change to have access to my email everywhere!

    1) Figure out how to jailbreak it
    2) set up e-mail accounts and sync calendar
    3) Buy a case for it, with a white carbon skin covering it
    4) Find useful apps for it
    5) Update contact info's on to it

    In no particular order. I cant wait, my Droid has been good to me, but its time to switch to what I originally wanted! :)

    I'm currently on a family share plan and for the longest I didn't know that I could add 10 out of network numbers to have free calling. So...

    • Check you family and friends numbers. (If on Family Share.)
    • Update iTunes as of last night. CDMA tweaks.
    • Make some wallpapers from family photos.
    • Make some ringtones.
    • Learn what I can about iOS. (Thank you AT&T!)

    A lot of us have a GMail account and put our Contacts and Calendars on Google as well.

    This allows you to just enter your Google account info on any laptop/desktop computer, iPhone or iPad or iPod touch , Android tablet or phone, WP7 phone, and almost immediately the new device is sync'd to the info. You can also access it all via the web from anywhere.

    (Bookmarks aren't sync'd, although I've heard there are ways for that which I have not yet used. Anyone with experience there?)
