Verizon expects long iPhone lines

February 9, 2011

Verizon Wireless stores in Indianapolis plan to open early Thursday to accommodate customers seeking the iPhone 4. All 13 area stores plan to open as early as 7 a.m. Extra staff will be on hand to help with expected long lines. Last week, Verizon began taking early online orders but the phone quickly sold out, leaving many customers waiting for Thursday's release. Previously, iPhones offered only AT&T as a wireless carrier.
