If you follow such things, you'll know that the exclusivity contract between Apple and AT&T (which allowed only AT&T to sell the iPhone) ended recently. And Verizon (which is who we use for cell service) jumped right on board. Steve and I just completed our 2nd year of our two year contract and we were MORE than ready for some new equipment!
But when we heard rumors the iPhone was coming to Verizon, we decided to hold out. It was tough sometimes, but thanks to my Apple guru friend, Brian, we did it!
The iPhone was made available for pre-purchase to current Verizon customers starting at 2am my time yesterday morning. And you know what?
I set my alarm and got up and purchased them at 2:05am.
And I'm STOKED about it.
I should have the phone no later than the 10th when it goes public to everyone else. And I can't wait.
I know there are probably Droid lovers and Apple/iPhone haters etc. reading my blog. But this is not a post to start a comment war about that. It's simply a post to let you know that I have joined the iPhone community (as has Steve) and we are happy about it. :)
