Less than 24 hours after Apple and Verizon began accepting pre-orders for the CDMA version of the iPhone 4 both companies have already stopped. Only existing Verizon customers were eligible to participate in the pre-order program.

iPhone 4 pre-orders sold out

With all of the pre-order phones snatched up, the rest of Verizon’s customers, along with the general public, will have to wait until February 10 for a chance to get their hands on an iPhone 4.

Verizon announced it would start selling the iPhone 4 during a media event in early January. Previously, Verizon was locked out of the iPhone game because the combination iPod and smartphone wasn’t compatible with its network.

Apple, however, built a new model that supports the CDMA-based wireless technology Verizon uses for its cell network. All other iPhone models use the GSM wireless technology AT&T and cell carriers around the world rely on.

Starting February 9, potential customers will be able to pre-order the Verizon iPhone 4, and on February 10 they can purchase one at Apple and Verizon retail locations as well as online.



And, they did in two hours, the ones between 3AM and 5AM.
