Then stop crying about it!
No one is talking about you NOT getting the phone. We are talking about if it will ship on the date promoted by Verizon or earlier.
As I've said before, I hope all of you (even you) get yours early. But if others get theirs before you, don't get upset about it.
And no there are no lines but there appears to be limited supply which increases demand and makes the pre-order even easier and more of a sure bet.
You can't always have your cake and eat it too.
