The pre-sale will commence at 3AM EST on February 3rd on both Verizon's and Apple's online stores. Note that this is for existing Verizon customers only.
All other interested buyers will be able to reserve an iPhone 4 with a Verizon contract online for delivery or in-store pick-up on Wednesday, February 9.
Then, on the big day (February 10), doors will open at 7AM local time at Verizon and Apple Stores nationwide. I can't imagine there being a shortage of a device that has been available (even if with a different carrier) since last summer. But anything is possible.
