Verizon Announce iPhone 4 Was Most Successful Launch Ever

Although Verizon ran out of pre-orders within the first day, the smartphone actually set the record on the Verizon network for the fastest selling device in 24 hours. In fact, it sold that quick that it took the record in just 2 hours of the doors opening. Virtual doors opened at 3am Eastern and by 5am the record was set.

Due to the quick depletion of pre-orders, Verizon is not able to open up pre-orders until the 9th February.

“This was an exciting day,” said Dan Mead, president and chief executive officer for Verizon Wireless. “In just our first two hours, we had already sold more phones than any first day launch in our history. And, when you consider these initial orders were placed between the hours of 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., it is an incredible success story. It is gratifying to know that our customers responded so enthusiastically to this exclusive offer – designed to reward them for their loyalty.

Although the iPhone 5 is expected in just a few months time, it appears that Verizon users do want the iPhone and are willing to buy it now to finally get it on a network they think is best.

For those wanting to pre-order now, the next date is February 9 and then you’ll need to queue at Apple or Verizon on February 10 at 7am to get your hands on one.
