    I went to a verizon store today to snoop around and ask questions about the iPhone.

    I asked when i can preorder it...

    Before saying anything, they just pulled out a black binder and asked for my name and phone number then said "When we are ready to take preorders for the iPhone, we will be calling the people on this list so they can come in and pay for it. And those who preorder it from us will be able to pick it up sometime before the drop date."

    So even though VZW didnt announce it today at CES, it does seem as if something is in the works...:icon_eek:

    That's rather interesting to say the least. Thanks for putting that out there.

    And for those that are even thinking about getting sarcastic or making otherwise snide remarks about the poster and this thread, don't do it. ;)

    This post is not necessary nor is it conducive to the thread.

    i'm just saying......i've been reading posts where people are confident that vzw will never drop an iphone.

    if thats the case, then i'm wondering why they would go thru all that trouble today to walk into the back office to bring out a big black binder to write everyones name and number in it for no reason....???.....just sayin'

    SgtMorph, ignore the statements, many more of us appreciate it. I and the rest of the staff will make it a point to take care of inappropriate comments as we see them.

    KZI, it's in your better interests to move on from this thread. The sarcasm isn't necessary.

    did you mean to post this in this thread? You should see if one of the mods can move your question to the droid applications area. I wish I could answer your question here but I don't know what you mean.

    Generally I don't put a lot of credence into to anything that happens in a Verizon Store. If it's an independently owned store that seems more plausible that they might do something like that. A corporate store would be real hard to believe they would do it.

    Now I want to be clear, I believe the OP's story. I just look at the bigger picture. This could be significant or it might just be one store taking it upon themselves "just in case."

    I'm still not 100% convinced myself. I've asked some insiders about it and based on their responses I'm sort of with you Hook.

    Thanks for the info. It stands to reason that if VZW gets the iPhone it would be in june June when the new model will come out.

    They might be ones that highly suggest a task killer and even install it for you as well. Ya just never know anymore.
    I for one will be very happy when it does finally arrive so the rumors will cease and we can get real apples to apples comparison instead of am vs fm rendition of which rock band is best.
