    The charge will probably stay as pending until it ships. It's normal for online vendors to put a pending charge on an account for a preorder to make sure there's enough to cover the cost of whatever you're buying. Of course it's also not out of the question for the charge to clear before shipping. Bottom line is that it's normal for the funds to be unavailable when you preorder.

    Probably a preauth

    My friend owns a few Verizon stores and I just did my preorder and paid up front also.

    He moved my upgrade to a line that has 2gb cap and said he will swap it on my line when it comes in so I can keep my unilimted data plan!

    Doubt its a preauth. They usually expire after 7-10 days.
