I posted this in the Official Incredible thread. It's more on topic here though.
An e-mail I received today regarding early shipment from VZW.
Thank You for contacting Verizon Wireless, we appreciate your business. We apologize for any inconvenience regarding the delay in shipping your Internet Order Number 12345. Our records indicate that we received your pre-order for the HTC Incredible and your order is in our que for processing. We process each internet order in the same order as we receive them and do not give special treatment to some customers to the exclusion of others. We are unaware of any pre-ordered phones that have been shipped from our warehouses with preferential treatment. Unfortunately, the new phone is scheduled to begin shipping from our warehouses on 4/27/10, (but could be as early as 4/26/10). Our plan is to have all our pre-orders for the HTC Incredible shipped to our customers addresses by 04/29/2010.
We thank you for your patience in this matter and we sincerely appreciate your business.
If you have other questions regarding your order, please reply to this email or call 866-338-7390, Monday-Friday, 8am-9pm, or Saturday, 8am-5pm, EST.
The Internet Order Processing Team
