  • Verizon Rolls Out Countdown Clock to 3:00 am February 3rd iPhone Launch


    At midnight on Friday, Verizon published a teaser splash page on its website to promote the forthcoming launch of the Verizon iPhone. In less than one week, preorders for the Verizon iPhone will commence. And according to the new page, Verizon customers can make their long awaited purchase at 3:00 am EST on February 3rd.

    Although Verizon had previously notified business customers of the middle-of-the-night launch, the freshly unveiled webpage is the first time Verizon has openly plugged the 3:00 am launch to the masses. Verizon is even doing so with an obligatory countdown clock that heralds the forthcoming - and long awaited - arrival of Apple's hugely popular touchscreen smartphone on a carrier that isn't AT&T.

    So why 3:00 am, you ask? On the surface, it's all about fairness. 3:00 am EST represents the earliest possible time that February 3rd has officially arrived across the entire continental United States. But the truth may very well be that a late night roll out reduces the chances of Verizon's website crashing when the flood gates initially open. After all, millions of Verizon customers are expected to purchase iPhones within the next 30 days - a massive number of which will likely do so at the earliest possible opportunity. For this reason, the Verizon website reminds visitors that the Verizon iPhone 4 will only be available on a "first come, first serve" basis.

      I think most users here are quite content with AT&T and actually prefer their service over VZW. IMO. But by all means, feel free to go to VZW and increase AT&T's bandwidth just a little bit more

      I think most have to admit based on where you live, Verizon probably has the best service. Im a phone junkie (had every flagship on att and verizon) and nothing sucks more than not having a sim card you can swap to any phone at any given time, or the ability to use voice and data simultaneously. I have att and verizon so Im not biased to any carrier. If I had unlimited data I would gladly stay with att but the lack of forces me to cancel my att iphone contract. I know I will hate not being able to tether and talk at the same time or search the web, but the simple fact that I can have unlimited data is a #WIN. I will take what I have experienced as better service and unlimited data with verizon over capped data along the ability to do voice and talk simultaneously.

      There is a guy that works for AT&T on this link below, that will restore your unlimited data for a fee of 65 Bucks...Might be worth it, but also there is a hack that you can do if you have an iphone 2g also. Thought i would share

      I love how threads like this have now turned into "I can't wait for ATT to have their 'pipes' open up when all the noobs leave and give me more bandwidth". This may be the case, but people like to say anything and everything, even if it has been said a thousand times before, just so they can prove to themselves they are making the right decision...

      Think About It People...Are You Willing To Spend Over 500 bucks to switch to verizon...then when all the iPhone users get on the network it's it's gonna slow down like AT&T. Although it's a "TAD" faster than AT&T. If you guys really want Speed just wait for the iPhone 5 on Att new 4G network.

      Dear Verizon, thanks for not publicly informing us that you cannot use voice and data and the same time. Happy contract termination fee :P
