Hello Everyone- I am doing a pre-order for the first time through Verizon, in years past I have gone through Apple. I will be ordering my apple watch through apple this year but I want to order my 7+ through Verizon b/c of the upgrade program and I have a gift card for Verizon. To the point, does anyone know what time Verizon starts taking preorders? I will already be up at 3am est for the apple watch does Verizon start at the same time? at midnight est? anyone with any experience I would greatly appreciate it. Also, it is better to call in, go online? Any and all advice would help. I tried calling Verizon twice and having them call me back when next available associate is available....still waiting. LOL. Thank you.
