So, I ordered my iphone 5 at about 3:15am Eastern, got my confirmation email and I thought everything was fine. I see people talking about a text message from Verizon saying do you want to confirm this order? I keep my work phone that is linked to the account at work so I have not been able to check to see if I have gotten any type of message but is it a big deal if you dont reply? Will I still get one of the first batch of phones because I ordered it early? Help would be greatly appreciated.
My Verizon cell phone has been on since I placed the preorder at 0305 or so last Friday. I never received a text message.
I wouldn't worry about it. Have you checked your order status online? Use the preorder confirmation number from your email, and your last name IN CAPS.
That would be my expectation.
I haven't heard anyone say that receiving and responding to a text message was a requirement to complete the order.
I ordered my iphone 5 right at midnight on the 14th PDT. The transaction took about 10 min. Then at 1:10AM, I was still up and received a text message, apparently from Verizon's fraud division, saying I had to "authenticate" the order by replying "yes" to the text message, which of course I did. So apparently not everyone got this text message? I know from other posts here that some people did get this text message and now I am wondering if this had anything to do with what kind of credit card you used. But I definitely got the confirmation text from Verizon about an hour after my transaction.
