EXCLUSIVE: Apple & Verizon Begin Shipping iPhone 4; Holding Distribution Until February 10th

Hey guys, as you may have seen earlier today, Verizon and Apple began their pre-orders of the iPhone 4 on Verizon, well, for the people who ordered right at 1:59 or 2am, their accounts are now showing their iPhone’s as “shipped”.

My friend has recieved a notification from Verizon saying that his iPhone has shipped! “Horray! I’m going to get my iPhone before they launch!” I hate to be the bearer of bad news but…

As some of you may remember, Apple likes to hire a ton of security at local UPS or FEDEX outlets to prevent any Apple devices from reaching their destination until they officially launch. They’ve done with with the iPhone 3G S, iPhone 4, and the iPad, so I’m not surprised that they may do this again.

So for everyone that pre-orders an iPhone 4 today on Verizon, ignore Apple/Verizon/UPS’ shipping date or estimated arrival date, your iPhones will arrive on February 10th starting at 7am (Pacific).

More news to come…
