The Verizon Wireless store on Thomasville Road opened at 7am.. that's two hours earlier than normal - all because they knew people would be waiting to get this special phone that many customers have been wanting on for years.
A Verizon Wireless spokesperson says what's different about this phone is that they offer a 3G mobile hot spot feature which allows up to five features to access the Internet through the phone.
Verizon Wireless Account Manager Tracy Shelton says, "That means not only can they have the iconic device and browse the Internet, and do everything else you can do with an iPhone, you can also connect a laptop or any other wi-fi enabled device to it as well."
