I've worked in the telecom industry for years with several of Verizon's biggest competitors. I know a potential problem when I see one. I can just see the preorders getting royally screwed up because an exec goes overboard on "closing the holes" of orders going out early. This will especially be a problem for those trying to port numbers to Verizon. Porting numbers can run into problems and there will be no time to fix them so the orders will just wait past the launch date. So instead of the normal headlines on blogs about the incredible being available or people showing them off it will be "Verizon's Incredibly bad launch"
