Iphone for Verizon

I've been waiting for the Iphone to come to Verizon for as long as there's been an Iphone.  I'm pretty much an Apple snob.  In my house there is an Imac, Macbook Pro, Apple tv, and number of Ipods.  I will only buy an Apple computer.  So, the fact that I've held out so long for the Iphone is kind of a big deal.  But, I hate AT&T and everyone I know (pretty much) is on Verizon so it seemed silly to switch to an awful network for a phone.  So, I waited.  And it seems I'm still waiting.

Even once the Iphone was available for pre-order I questioned whether the purchase was practical since there will most likely be a new phone out in June.  But, that's all based on rumors.  And my current phone battery is slowing dying on me, so I took the plunge and ordered my phone on Feb. 9 at 3 am.  Yes, 3 am.  Only to be told it wouldn't ship until February 18!  That's crazy!  I tried to cancel the order (so I could just buy it in the store) but i was told that's not allowed.  Then I saw that my phone was saying it shipped, but according to the guy I spoke with on the phone that wasn't true.  And according to the woman who returned my email I sent requesting an explanation for the delay in my shipping, my phone would not be shipping until February 18.  The thing is, this email came after another email telling me my phone shipped and gave me a tracking number.  According to that email, my phone left Westchester, PA at 8:30 am this morning.  I was hopeful I'd get it before the end of the day.  I had it shipped to work since it required a signature.  I checked tracking again at 3 pm, only to see the info. had changed to origin scan at 8:30 am and departure scan from West chester at 5 pm, except it was only 3 pm when I checked this!  What the crap!  Total mess.  I've since checked again and supposedly it'll be delivered Monday.  I've also since gotten a voicemail from the woman who emailed me telling me the phones started to ship on the 10th on a first ordered first shipped basis.  I guess she got this info. after she emailed me telling me the opposite.  Soooo, hopefully I can be done waiting by Monday.  I really should have just gone to the store and bought one, but funny thing, when I was in the Verizon store last week I was told they wouldn't be in the store until the end of the month.  I wonder how many other people were told this?  Yeah, a total mess.
I am excited for my new phone though!  Let's be honest.
