Verizon iPhone 4 Preorder: Day 1 Is A Sell Out

We never doubted that the Verizon iPhone 4 would be popular as it’s a case of the biggest selling mobile phone pairing up with the best rated carrier in the U.S. Yesterday we speculated that there may not be enough stock to fulfill the demand for the sought after device, were we right? Well we are hearing reports that the Verizon iPhone 4 pre-ordering has been a sell out on day one.

Many users have already told us of their frustrations when we asked what problems you were having when pre-ordering. Many of you were saying that there were errors coming up when you tried to order yours. Could this have been down to a site overload or perhaps it was bad timing for a site error to occur, either way what could Verizon have done?

According to Adam Mills from over at is warning that you may have to get one from a store like Best Buy, Verizon or Apple on February 10th and if you plan to, get there early. If the demand is as high as it has been for pre-orders then you can safely bet that the shops will be busy on release day.

If you check out the Verizon website you are greeted with the message, “iPhone 4. Verizon. It begins. We are no longer taking pre-sale orders. Experience yours when it’s available online and in stores”. See an image of it below.

Did you get your pre-order in? Have you had a shipping date yet? What about the error, did you receive it and then still get your iPhone 4? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Just happened to be working overnight on 2/3/11, so I logged on at 0300 hrs EST and ordered my iPhone without a glitch. It took about seven minutes. I received shipping confirmation this AM with an estimated 2/7/11 delivery date. I am looking forward to transitioning from my Blackberry.

    I ordered mine at 3 am on 2/3 and it's presently on its way to me. I was surprised it shipped so soon.

    Got the error message several times. I thought it might be a browser problem as I was using Chrome.
    I switched to Firefox and the order went through without any difficulty. I can't seem to check my order status now though as I keep getting an error message on that page even using Firefox.

    I ordered at 3:10 AM on 2/3. It was a very smooth ordering process. It originally said my ship date would be 2/10/11 but then I just received a message that it was shipped today. I should have it on Monday 2/7.
