    I called verizon and they are already taking orders,although they wont submit them till morning,i ordered 16gb black,i usually get white,but i really like the look of the black,so my order is set to go,the rep said when he gets in the morning he will be submitting all the orders he's taken,i will be getting it on release day,i was just told to accept the order confirmation email when it is sent,they were also offering a bundle for $245 you get the iphone 16gb,cases,screen protectors,home and car chargers,so i went ahead and got that,so i am good to go!

    Hey, question (just to verify whether the info I heard was true or not), do you have the shared data plan or did you change to it? If not, did they let you keep the old plan (non shared data plan).

    Just curious how accurate something I heard was (cause if you can verify you were able to keep a non shared plan it would totally make that info defunct).

    If you want the upgrade price, you can use the individual data plans (2 GB, 5 GB, etc) per line, or get a shared data plan, but you cannot keep an unlimited data plan. Verified via phone yesterday.

    HRm, he claimed he talked to a rep (commented on his G+) and the rep said that you had to go to a shared data plan now to get the subsidized price (not just lose your unlimited, but you had to change to the shared data plans). OF course even if the journalist is telling the truth (which I am guessing he is honestly), reps have been known not to know what they are talking about (which I would guess is more the case). And he only claimed to talk to one about this.

    I guess I'll probably see by tomorrow cause if it is true, I predict that there will at least be some very upset people who probably will be voicing it here ;). I mean the shared data plan is great for some but a total rip off for others.

    Your order depends on that sales representative. No one can preorder the iPhone until 12AM PST tonight. The sales man will probably try to preorder it for you in the morning once they start their shift. I just don't see how they could already be taking preorders right now over the phone if they released a public announcement that they will accept it only at 12am tonight.

    And as I said your chance of getting the iPhone will solely depend on that representative. If Verizon no longer has stock once he clocks in then you're out of luck. That's a whole 6 hours, anything can happen.

    They are taking preorders,but they wont be submitted until early morning,and yes i have his info,i have his name,extension and direct line,my order is already taken and my rep will be submitting it and all the others hes taken at 6 am,i will be getting it on the 21st,it just saves me having to staa awake and fight the system because the servers always jam up with everyone trying to order.

    ----------

    I was told the orders taken will be getting our phones on the 21st

    Well, I wouldn't issue a blanket statement and say "they" are taking pre-orders... because I'm on the phone with them right now, and she put me on hold and asked around, and she is being told that the system won't let them do it at all until 3:00 AM EST...

    You were told what the sales rep thought was needed in order to get commission. If you make a sale with them then they get commission.

    Possibly, but you can't keep it when placing the order online. Sorry, what I mean is if you pay full price you can't keep your unlimited data plan when you try to preorder online.
