Verizon and Apple have stopped taking pre-orders for iPhone 4 as they have run out of stock in less than a day since they started accepting pre-orders.

Verizon has announced that the launch of iPhone was the fastest-selling debut in the carrier’s history, which is amazing when you consider that the pre-orders were open only to existing Verizon customers and Verizon had started accepting orders very early in the morning or late night (3:00am EST).

Verizon announced:

“This was an exciting day,” said Dan Mead, president and chief executive officer for Verizon Wireless. “In just our first two hours, we had already sold more phones than any first day launch in our history. And, when you consider these initial orders were placed between the hours of 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., it is an incredible success story. It is gratifying to know that our customers responded so enthusiastically to this exclusive offer – designed to reward them for their loyalty.”

Verizon has also announced that non-Verizon users will be able to order Verizon iPhone from 3:00 am on February 9th for delivery or reserve for in-store pick up beginning February 10 or wait until February 10 to pick it up from Verizon Wireless Communication Stores, which will open at 7:00am in the morning.

Early reviewers have observed that the voice quality of the iPhone on Verizon’s network is a lot better than AT&T though download and upload speeds are slower.

Verizon has also started airing a new iPhone commercial, which seems to indirectly target AT&T’s poor network coverage.

So looks like things are going to get interesting as AT&T and Verizon fight it out to get iPhone customers.

Let us know what do you think of Verizon’s new iPhone commercial.
