Verizon iPhone

I tried to order a Verizon iPhone this morning, but Verizon’s site really doesn’t like the idea of shipping it to my work address. If I tell it that the shipping address is a business, then it tells me that I need to enter a company name, but the form doesn’t have a field for company name. If I switch the drop-down to say that I want it shipped to a residential address, and just enter my business address anyway, then it tells me that I’ve entered an invalid address. A number of people have reported these problems in the Verizon iPhone 4 forums.

I eventually got the order to go through by playing around with different ways of formatting my company’s address until I hit on one that Verizon liked. I really think they could have done a better job on this though. An hour or two of QA on their preorder site, and they could have at least uncovered the company name bug and fixed that.
