Verizon iPhone 4 preorder to start Feb. 3; AT&T iPhone trade-ins acceptedJanuary 27, 2011 |  9:22am


Verizon iPhone 4 preorders are set to begin on Feb. 3, seven days before the coveted Apple smart phone hits store shelves at the carrier.

And the largest carrier in the U.S. is also taking AT&T iPhone trade-ins, according to a report from the Website MacRumors. Verizon officials weren't available for comment Thursday morning.

Verizon has announced the preorders in e-mails to its corporate mobile subscribers telling them about the preorder option, noting that the preorder sales will start at 3 a.m. EST, MacRumors said.

Preorders will only be accepted through My Verizon accounts on Verizon's site. Verizon is taking a limited number of preorders, the website said, though the carrier hasn't said just how many.

MacRumors also reported that Verizon is offering trade-in credits for AT&T iPhones toward its version of the iPhone 4, offering from $60 to $360 in credit depending on the model. The credit amounts were listed as:

iPhone 2G (original model) 16GB: $60

iPhone 3G 16GB: $105

iPhone 3Gs 32GB: $160

iPhone 4 16GB: $280

iPhone 4 32GB: $360

Pre-ordered Verizon iPhone 4s will ship to customers via two-day FedEx or, for an extra charge, next-day delivery.

The trade-in move for AT&T customers follows an offer to existing iPhone customers of an up to $200 gift card for those who bought new phones over the holidays and want to switch to the iPhone 4.

Cool. I should see faster speeds starting Feb 3rd. Can't wait for the mass exodus from disgruntled AT&T customers. AT&T's network should be humming faster.

Notice how the phone in the photo is set to 1134, which if rotated spells hell. Perhaps this is an omen for the Verizon iPhone 4.
