Like many people, I had always wanted an iPhone, but never owned one because AT&T service in New York is pretty bad. So when Verizon announced that the iPhone was coming, I was very pleased.
So this morning at about 3:10 am EST, I logged in to my Verizon account to buy my first iPhone. I was not eligible for the upgrade, so I had to plunk down the full price for the 32gb model. I convinced myself that it was worth it, since I use iTunes and have tons of apps for my iPad and iTouch. Surprising, the process went rather smoothly.
I have received a confirmation email from Verizon at 5:16 am confirming my purchase and received an order number: 14,5xx. This is different from the order reference number, which was the preorder number. I would assume that the order number indicates that I am approximately the 14,000th buyer on the Verizon website.
If your have purchased a Verizon iPhone, kindly post your order number and the approximate time of your order so that everyone can get an idea of how sales are going. I know you may be concerned about your privacy, so I suggest that you post like I did, with "xx" replacing the last two digits.
