Verizon has opened its website for iPhone pre-orders about 10 minutes early. Existing Verizon customers can begin pre-ordering their iPhone 4. Apple's own website is now also accepting preorders.

Early reviews for the Verizon iPhone were released late last night. The general conclusions were that Verizon did provide better reception and voice coverage, but data speeds (when there was coverage) were slower than AT&T. The Verizon iPhone also allows customers to set up a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot to share their phone's internet connection to their laptop or iPad. This does require an additional $20/month fee.

Orders for new Verizon customers will begin on February 10th. Verizon expects there to be high demand and is asking employees to hold of on ordering an iPhone until the initial demand slows down.

Verizon's plans are posted on Apple's site.

Voice
$39.99 - 450 Minutes
$59.99 - 900 Minutes
$69.99 - Unlimited Minutes

Data
$29.99 - Unlimited
$49.99 - Unlimited on iPhone, 2GB on Mobile Hotspot ($35 Activation fee)

Messaging
No Plan - $.20 per text, $.30 per Pic/Video
$5.00 - 250 Messages
$10.00 - 500 Messages
$20.00 - Unlimited Messages

Order complete! We got 2 of the 32gb models without issue. I passed up the accessories for now figuring that I could figure that piece out later and just wanted to get the order in. I logged on at about 1:48am CST (12 minutes early) and surprisingly, the website let me in. Woohoo! :D

That was easy. I even tried ordering from Apple and their website is down!

FYI, I ordered at 2:53 am, and here's my "Ace" order number, which appears to be in sequence. I'm number 437.

Here's the screen shot from the "check order" screen.
