Verizon iPhone 4 Taking No More Preorders

“This was an exciting day,” said Dan Mead, President/CEO for Verizon “In just our first two hours, we had already sold more phones than any first day launch in our history. And, when you consider these initial orders were placed between the hours of 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., it is an incredible success story."


Hopefully you got your order in already if you wanted a CDMA iPhone 4 because Verizon is no longer allowing customers to preorder the Apple smartphone.

There is no estimated delivery date from Verizon in the screenshot below, but it does seem strange that UPS is being used instead of FedEx. Does anyone think that the Verizon network will come crashing down with this step increase in data usage due to the iPhone 4? If the iPhone doesn't do it...maybe the release of a CDMA Verizon iPad 2 in a couple months will overload the robust Verizon network


Drop a comment if you receive your iPhone 4 before the February 10th launch date...would be interested how many people will take next Thursday off from work to ensure they are home for the delivery.

VERIZON WIRELESS HAS RECORD SALES ON FIRST DAY OF iPHONE 4

Available to General Public on Feb.10

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – At 8:10 p.m. EST yesterday, Verizon Wireless ceased online orders of iPhone 4 to existing customers and ended the most successful first day sales in the history of the company.

“This was an exciting day,” said Dan Mead, president and chief executive officer for Verizon Wireless. “In just our first two hours, we had already sold more phones than any first day launch in our history. And, when you consider these initial orders were placed between the hours of 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., it is an incredible success story. It is gratifying to know that our customers responded so enthusiastically to this exclusive offer — designed to reward them for their loyalty.

“I am proud of our employees who worked tirelessly to strengthen and scale our systems, enabling unprecedented customer orders through our website. Overall, it was a very good day,” he added.

Mead also said customers will have another opportunity at being among the nation’s first to own an iPhone 4 on the Verizon Wireless network.

“Yesterday’s launch set the pace for next week when we open up sales to everyone across America.”

The general market launch of the iPhone 4 on the Verizon Wireless network will occur on February 10. The company will open its more than 2000 Verizon Wireless Stores at 7 a.m. It will also be available at all Apple store locations, Best Buy, select Wal-Mart stores, and on-line at verizonwireless.com and apple.com.
