"Your Verizon iPhone has shipped"

It starts.

If Verizon’s order system is to believed, should be getting the Verizon iPhone tomorrow. Pumped.

EDIT: My brother picked one up last night as well, and he’s just had the money for the phone pulled from his bank account. I believe that during confirmation and on Apple’s website, it was specified that we would be charged once the phone has shipped. Not up on my American Express yet, but I’ll keep checking.

EDIT 2: I’ve been charged for my Verizon iPhone. 

EDIT 3: Just got this in an email. 

Congratulations. Your iPhone 4 has shipped. The moment you’ve been waiting for is almost here. Amazing without compromise is on its way.”

Package tracking isn’t enabled yet, but the phone is officially on its way. Excited.
