Verizon iPhone reaches its first known buyer

Verizon iPhone gets to official forum user

Verizon forum members discovered the first known regular customer to get an iPhone. In what appears to have been an after-hours visit to a UPS depot in Fort Worth, Texas, one buyer managed to get his and activated it the same day. It "works great," he said.

Most early adopters have yet to get their phones and won't receive theirs until Monday, but many of them are now at the last stage sorting facilities for FedEx or UPS depending on who handled the package. The split in shipping is somewhat unusual for Apple, which tends to pick a preferred delivery firm for a major launch. It may have chosen two partners to avoid the possible strain of tens of thousands of orders for pre-orders on top of those destined for retail and online customers this coming week.

Apple in the past year began taking a more relaxed approach to iPhone launches and shipped AT&T units early, although for tine original launch it wouldn't start activating the smartphones until the official launch day. The Verizon model puts less pressure on Apple as there's no major feature or software changes apart from the different cellular network support.

    Now this is messed up

    I'm with Alltel and my area got bought by AT&T. I've had my iPhone ordered for 3 months. The network is up and running but friggin AT&T is holding off on sending out all of the new phones to Alltel/AT&T customers. Yet VERIZON is getting their sh*t first? WTF???? AT&T is starting off on a bad foot. They better impress me with good cell service seeing as they aquired all the Alltel towers too and I've had 5 bar service for the last 4 years no matter where I was in the country...

    Really High Tech

    Besides his Verizon iPhone, it seems Steve Wozniak has a time machine too.
