Verizon Store Employees: No iPhone 5 Vacation Blackout

Well, that was quick. We just reported that Verizon Wireless has a blackout scheduled from September 21 – September 30 in conjunction with the iPhone 5 launch. The original source was TechCrunch, and we’re not disputing that, but we decided to call a few stores to check if that was indeed the case. We asked employees straight up if they weren’t allowed to take a vacation on September 21. “Not that I’ve heard (laughs),” one employee told us. “Nobody told me not to,” another said.

Perhaps a blackout is coming soon, but it sounds like, for now, employees are still allowed to take a vacation if they want to. We’re still expecting the iPhone 5 announcement to occur on September 12, however. That date has pretty much been sealed.
