Anyone else Pre-ordering tonight?

Thankfully, being on the west coast, Verizon iPhone pre-ordering starts at midnight here.

As my wife's line is not eligible for an upgrade till Jan 2012, I'm going to use my Mom's line to score a $299 iPhone. After receiving it, I'll transfer the iPhone onto my wife's number. I've read this can be done on VZ forums.

Only remaining question is whether to order from VZ or Apple?

I'll be up and ordering at midnight--we only get Verizon at the house, so I've been waiting for several years for this.

Tempted. Very tempted. But I think I'll wait to see what kind of oddities need to be worked out with the hardware and software first.

As excited that I am that Verizon is getting the iPhone, I am tempted to wait for the next revision. I don't want to be locked for two years.

that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his

his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher

I'm eligible for an upgrade on February 8th, but I think I'll be waiting to see how the iPhone does on Verizon before I plunk down any cash (or commit to a long term contract).

I'm eligible to upgrade now but just don't know if I really want to do it. What are plan details besides the
$30 unlimited data plan?

I just can't justify the cost of the monthly plans. I am spoiled paying $30 a month for my cell phone usage and just can't wrap my mind around more than doubling that for a minimum of two years, plus the cost of the phone. That said, if I were to get an iPhone, it would be with Verizon because they have the best coverage for me.

Bought a Verizon Moto Droid on first day of release.
Which means I'm locked in for another 8.5 months.
Bleh.

NO. I just got us the fine Palm Pixi Plus and Page Plus Cellular setup. $50 will last us 3-6 months I suppose.

I'm already paying $30/month for the 3G iPad, I just can't see paying for more than just our family plan through
Verizon at $130 for 4 lines with 1400 minutes and unlimited text. It has to stop somewhere. Things were much
simpler 30 years ago and cheaper.

Actually, with the cost of long distance what it was back then, who knows whether it was cheaper, for the same amount of usage, but definitely simpler.

There's no place you can camp out in line, and get a t-shirt?
