Verizon iPhone Pre-Orders To Start on Feb. 3, AT&T Trade-Ins

According to MacRumors, Verizon Wireless has started sending out emails to corporate customers informing them that “pre-order sales” of the new device will start on February 3rd at 3AM ET, one week before the general public release of the Verizon iPhone:

According to the email we’ve received, Verizon will begin pre-order sales at 3am Eastern on February 3rd.

- Make sure you have your My Verizon self-serve account set-up online. Orders can only be placed through your my Verizon account. You can register/setup your account at… myaccount.verizonwireless.com

- On February 3rd at 3am EST, Verizon Wireless will allow our current customers to order upgrades or new lines to their accounts through your My Verizon online account (make sure you have registered before the 3rd).

MacRumors also reports inventory will be limited and customers who won’t be able to get the iPhone on Feb. 3 will have to wait until the week later. Trade-ins in credit should also be available for existing AT&T customers who want to replace an old iPhone model:

  • iPhone 2G - 16GB: $60
  • iPhone 3G - 16GB: $105
  • iPhone 3Gs 32GB: $160
  • iPhone 4- 16GB: $280
  • iPhone 4 - 32GB: $360

It’s unclear whether corporate accounts will have access to this trade-in program or not.
