    Yeah this is what i believe. Some stores do take it upon themselves to be ready if something like that happened. Why? Because the store may sell more units that way. In some cases it's better to be safe then sorry. Not saying this is the case here. I've heard from a few people that it would happen and from others that it won't (people that have knowledge of it, not theory). As with anything else until it is 100% confirmed by verzion it's merely a rumor. I have no hate towards the iphone at all, it's just another phone. Some people like it over android phones, and that is also 100% ok, not everyone likes the same thing, if they did this would be one boring world.

    Sgt can you private message me the stores phone number along with city and address? Ill call them to confirm they are taking pre-orders. This could be big news.

    I'm definetly with you on this hook......i'm generally a skeptic myself.
    I dont believe a damn thing until drop date. Either scenario could be possible. This store I went to was an actual vzw store. Not one of those crappy independent mall kiosk's......hahah. I confirmed this also on the verizonwireless.com store locator. So I guess we'll just have to wait and see what's the deal.

    Wait a second, Quicksiver. We have to let the current rumor, Jan./Feb. pass before we start a new rumor.;)

    I am actually not surprised. Look at what happen at the ces...you had companies rushing to get their phones out there now and they are probably pushing to make sure they are released by the time iphone is released. I really think it is gonna happen.... why else would att who normally caters to apple now start putting out good android devices.

    They would do that because they see that android devices sell, before the droid 1, android had a very iffy name to it at best. I'm sure that AT&T wants to get in on that action now. Android has definitely made a name for itself and it's shown that it isn't going to just go away. Android has a very big market share, and if they continued to only offer iphone and maybe 1 or 2 lower end androids then they could be loosing out on alot of money.

    Why did ATT switch ALL their advertising to Windowsphone7 over the holidays?
    Hmmm. Makes one wonder.

    I tend to be with pc on this one. There are a lot of circumstances that seem to be coming around at the same time. I know everyone has seen the reports about Apple doing a vacation freeze for their employees, but didn't I also remember someone else saying the same thing was happening over the same period for Verizon employees? Like the exact same time? If so, that's one huge coincidence. Or not. ;)

    Ok so I spoke to them first as a customer inquiring about their black book and taking names for pre-sales of the iPhone. His response "For what phone?" "The iPhone" "The iPad you mean?" "No the iPhone" : ) he then went on to say that they don't have such a thing there and never heard it. I questioned him again. "I'm positive sir"

    I then told him I write for a very popular Android forum : ) and that there was a rumor on our forum that their store was taking peoples names for a pre/pre-sale on the iPhone. For the purpose of brevity "That gentlemen must have been misinformed by a sales associate or misunderstood. The only thing we deal with from Apple is their iPad. I can assure you that sir."

    Thats it.
