Its unfortunately, but you probably cannot imagine the strain on the system of everyone trying to get in at the same time, and even before that millions of people constantly refreshing the page trying to get in as soon as possible. A friend on sprint didn't get his order in until this morning, so it could have been much worse. Certainly not something Verizon did intentionally.

Sadly this happens EVERY year, and people still complain about it.  Nothing anyone can do about it.

I also had problems ordering the phone at midnight unlike other launches in the past with Verizon this must have been huge for them.

Is iPhone 7 plus on back order? I ordered mine over phone at 8:00am this morning. The rep said i wouldn't get it until November 16th!

Depends on what model and color you Opted for. If it's the jet black then yes, it's extremely popular and was the first to get pushed into back order.

I understand your frustration, took me 20 minutes to get my order in while refresh the page constantly.  As for the Apple password issue, you have your account password and your billing password, the billing password is a 4 character, alpha numeric password you set for bill pay. This is the one they are looking for. If you don't recall setting one, I BELIEVE the default is the last 4 of the acct owners ssn. Or the last 4 of their phone number. hope this helped.

Same here.  I've never had a problem pre-ordering with VZW in the past.  Actually, when I pre-ordered by current 6s Plus I was actually able to get in and out before the actual start of the pre-order because VZW opened their website up like 5 minutes before 2am CST.  This time not so much.  I was constantly refreshing the page and trying on a second computer as well as my iPad.  It wasn't until 2:13am CST that I was able to finally get in and place my order.
