Verizon Wi-fi introduced Friday that it took him not up to a day Thursday to interrupt the iPhone four sale pre-order record before the sale in stores starting next Thursday.
However, Verizon Wireless, a joint venture of Verizon and the U.S. Britain's Vodafone, has not indicated how many units were reserved, saying only that he had enough of two hours between 3am and 5am on the coast is, exceeding the previous record pre-sales of phones.
"It is gratifying that our customers have responded so enthusiastically to this exclusive offer specially designed to reward their loyalty," said a statement from the CEO of Verizon Wireless Dan Mead.
This is the first time that the iPhone is sold in the U.S. by an operator other AT & T, which had exclusive since its inception in 2007. Several columnists have specialized in technology Thursday that Verizon offered a better quality of voice telephony.
To further boast its difference, Verizon also offers its customers for a limited time, a data rate plan (internet phone connections) unlimited for 30 dollars, while AT & T offering cheaper packages, $ 25 maximum but limiting consumer access to the internet.
According to a forum for users of the operator, Verizon still plans to change the flow of Internet users consume more data, eg for viewing movies on the phone.
VERIZON WIRELESS HAS RECORD SALES ON FIRST DAY OF iPHONE 4
Available to General Public on Feb.10
BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – At 8:10 p.m. EST yesterday, Verizon Wireless ceased online orders of iPhone 4 to existing customers and ended the most successful first day sales in the history of the company.
"This was an exciting day," said Dan Mead, president and chief executive officer for Verizon Wireless. "In just our first two hours, we had already sold more phones than any first day launch in our history. And, when you consider these initial orders were placed between the hours of 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., it is an incredible success story. It is gratifying to know that our customers responded so enthusiastically to this exclusive offer — designed to reward them for their loyalty.
"I am proud of our employees who worked tirelessly to strengthen and scale our systems, enabling unprecedented customer orders through our website. Overall, it was a very good day," he added.
Mead also said customers will have another opportunity at being among the nation’s first to own an iPhone 4 on the Verizon Wireless network.
"Yesterday’s launch set the pace for next week when we open up sales to everyone across America."
The general market launch of the iPhone 4 on the Verizon Wireless network will occur on February 10. The company will open its more than 2000 Verizon Wireless Stores at 7 a.m. It will also be available at all Apple store locations, Best Buy, select Wal-Mart stores, and on-line at verizonwireless.com and apple.com.
Verizon isn’t saying just how many phones they managed to pre-sell throughout the day, but as Engadget points out, it must be a hefty number considering the difficulty their ordering system had during the process.
