Default Now You Have to Wait Until February 9th to get Your Verizon iPhone

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/article/iphone_4_breaks_verizon_sales_records_in_2_hours/' target='_blank'>http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/arti...rds_in_2_hours/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Verizon began accepting pre-orders for Apple's iPhone 4 at 3AM on Thursday, and by 5AM had already broken all of its first full day sales records for a single device. The company processed so many orders that it, along with Apple, stopped accepting new pre-orders before the end of the day."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1295378753.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Well impressive, and it appears without a glitch other than having to shut down the pre-ordering earlier than they expected, but that isn't a bad thing. Well, unless you were hoping to be one of those pre-ordering. At 8:10pm Eastern they shut the operation down, and according to Verizon Wireless President Dan Mead "in our first two hours, we had already sold more phones than any first day launch in our history." Most impressive when you consider it was only open to existing customers and still claimed that record. No details on numbers yet, and I wonder how they will compare on February 9th and 10th when it is open to everyone. If you want to get in on this the online ordering starts at 3am on February 9th, and the stores (Verizon, Apple, Best Buy and Wal-Mart) will open up at 7am on February 10th if you want to brave the lines.*</p>
