Apple Inc. said Wednesday that it would kick off online sales of the Verizon Wireless iPhone on Feb. 9, a day before the device hits its store shelves.

Apple said people ordering the phone on Feb. 9 can have it delivered or reserve it for an in-store pickup Feb. 10, when both companies plan to start offering the phone in their stores a 7 a.m. local time. Verizon Wireless is a venture of Verizon Communications and Vodafone Group Plc.

It will be the second U.S. operator to offer iPhone after AT&T Inc. more than three years of exclusive rights to the popular device.

    Goodbye AT&T! After being a happy T-Mobile customer for years, I bought an iPhone, requiring a switch to AT&T. I have more dropped calls on AT&T on any day than I did for my entire 8 years with T-Mobile. Raising the issue with AT&T was a waste of time. So, hasta!
