    The 24th looks good. I called my local Verizon store today to ask if they would be offering pre-order sales like they did on the iphone 4. They told me no, but they were very quick to tell me that it would be available for purchase on the 24th on a first come first served basis.

      Hey! thank you very much for sharing that information! thatsglad to hear. Hopefully the proposed 2/24 date will be great opposed to the 2/28th date. I called my local best buy where i had pre ordered about a week and a half ago or so, and i was curious if they had any information or calling anybody for a proposed meet to pick up truthfully, and she put me on hold to go talk i guess to somebody higher of in sales in the mobile department. She came back on after a good long 5 mins and said that he knows that it will definately be in February for sure (crossed fingers) and the 24th might be true. and you hear all about the buzz on that picture of the 2/21 that it would be in stock. well i believe they might keep till the 2/24, in order to buy time by calling and setting up appointments on 2/24th for the people. In the meantime while verizon wants to give the iphone a fair chance (by the way, apple is not looking good anymore, android will succeed in overpowering the apple industry in phone in my opinion – cant keep up, but we will see in iphone 5) but yeah! thats my thoughts and hoping for 2/24th for the release.. i have loads of tests this week that will keep me busy in college lol.
