Image by Yutaka Tsutano via FlickrWhile everyone else is looking at the dire disaster happening in Egypt these days I am focused on what is really important: I ordered my Verizon iPhone yesterday!
Yes, that's right, yesterday, even though ordering is supposed to only be available today.
Well, the official start time for the pre-orders was 3am EST, Feb 3 - today. 3am is midnight here in California. I signed in about 15 minutes early, suddenly, after only 5 minutes of waiting, the screen came alive and said I could now order. I completed the the whole thing before midnight which means I ordered on Feb 2. People in Hawaii are probably saying "What's the big deal." But I must have been one of the very first to order.
What really annoyed me is the site said it would ship on Feb 10, when it goes on sell for everyone in the retail stores. How annoying that I will get mine the same time as everyone else, a whole week from now. Checked my order today and it said "Already Shipped." I was amazed, what does it mean? No company was named and no tracking number so I'm thinking it hasn't really shipped, but it would be great if it did - it would mean I'd get the phone tomorrow since I got free next day shipping.
I'll just have to wait and see if it shows up tomorrow. Fingers crossed!!
