I saw quite a few questions about this on individual threads so I thought i might as well start a new one with the relevant info regarding the start time for preorders. According to a Verizon representative, iPhone preorders start at midnight on the 3rd. http://community.vzw.com/t5/iPhone-4/Couple-Questions-Please-Answer/td-p/378830 Also, according to another representative pricing will be increased to $649 for 16g and $749 for the 32g. I really wish Verizon released all the details at once including things like data charges because info is slowly being filtered out from employees and misinformation is rampant. Hopefully, this is accurate.
