    Remember how the Verizon iPhone 4 pre-orders sold out literally in less than two hours? Well, a few new stats from the cellphone addicts at BGR tell otherwise: Verizon iPhone 4 sales aren't so hot as hoped.

    Sure the pre-orders for the Verizon iPhone 4 might have been impressive (that was for Verizon customers only), but the if first-week launch sales are anything to gauge a product by, the Verizon iPhone 4 is not selling through the roof. In fact, BGR's inside Apple sources show that unit sales from five Apple stores, including two prominent ones (Fifth Avenue?) show less than 1,000 units were sold during its first five days.

    What did you expect? Apple and Verizon are selling an 8-month old phone at the same price, with no simultaneous voice and data usage with a looming iPhone 5 on the horizon. Most AT&T customers are still locked into their two-year contracts and aren't willing to fork over the hefty early termination fee to make the switch.

    Yep, it looks like those who were hoping AT&T would offload a ton of unhappy customers onto Verizon will have to wait even longer.
