How badly did Verizon Wireless customers want the iPhone 4—a phone that’s been on the market for seven months and is likely to get replaced in just a few more? Apparently, they wanted it more than any other phone in Verizon’s history.
Verizon Wireless on Friday announced that the iPhone 4 broke all previous first-day device sales records in company history, and it only took two hours to do it. “This was an exciting day,” said Dan Mead, president and CEO for Verizon Wireless, in a press release.
Keep in mind, Verizon Wireless and Apple opened preorders at 3 a.m. ET Thursday morning, and even then, only to existing Verizon Wireless customers. While the iPhone 4 broke Verizon Wireless’s sales records just two hours later, preorders lasted until Thursday afternoon, when both Verizon and Apple had to stop accepting them.
