Contacted Verizon today, with interest in upgrading my phone line (iPhone 4). I'm on my parents line, and pay my own portion of the bill. I am not the primary account holder so i still need my father to sign off. The past 2.5 weeks he was away in Canada on a businesss trip, thereforee no iP5. Imagine my excitement when he returned this past Sunday night. After the usual "hello" and "how was the trip?" I worked my way up to mentioning my interest in upgrading, and we both agreed to it. Sooooo today while i was out at work my dad contacted Verizon, and asked about in-store pick-ups. The C.Rep said that in-store pick up maybe almost impossible at this point, and that i might be better off ordering online. No big deal right? Welllll, Verizon's latest shipments of online iPhone 5 orders will not be sent out until 10/19. IMO that's a long wait. Do you esteemed veterans (or newcomers) of the eiC community, think I'd be better off trying to check a more remote location (Verizon, Best Buy, Walmart) and hope they have my pristine White iPhone 5 32GB? Get back to me guys.
