    I went to order three minis for Christmas and saw that apple is still limiting us to two. Is that at a time/per order? Per apple ID? Per credit card, per address? I want them all registered to me. If I do one order if two and then another with one will one of them be cancelled? Or if I order two and find one in store and use my apple ID... Will they cancel one of the ones I order online?

    Did you log in with your apple ID for both and use the same credit card?

    What did Apple say when you called them?

    All have been registered to my Apple ID. Probably not bought with the same credit card though.

    Is that surprising? Haven't you ever been somewhere you can't call from but you could use the Internet?? Like perhaps work?? Or do you not have a job yet? Seriously some of the people on this board can be so dang intrusive. If you can't answer a question then just pass. Now move along.

    Thanks for answering!

    Yes it is, because taking 2 min to make a call, vs 2 min to type on a forum where you might not even get an answer seems silly. I honestly have never had a problem with not being able to not make a call anywhere with or with out internet. Theres always skype to make a call, and it's pretty much free....still very easy!

    Well thanks for sharing your story. Despite the fact that you could have called... That doesn't mean everyone could have. It never takes 2 minutes on hold anyway. I figured someone would know... And calling customer service often yields a different answer from each rep. It wasn't a cost factor.

    It's this sort of mentality that drives me nuts on this board. Just bc something is one way for you.. Doesn't mean it is the same way for someone else. When I'm watching my kids...something always happens the moment the rep picks up the phone... And I end up not completing the call. Case in point... Last week while trying to schedule the home warranty company to come out.. My oldest kicked his leg up bc he was happy about something and knocked my 2 year old in the jaw... 2 year bit the side of his mouth and was bleeding. Guess what... Still haven't had time to call them back and wait to speak with someone again.

    If you had made the call you would of got your answer by now though rather than spending time defending your actions and it would of been far more accurate than 'strangers' on the internet.

    Just saying... :(

    Wow, get off OP's back. He obviously was not in a place at the time to make a call, so he decided to try an post here for an answer. There's NOTHING wrong with that. Some of us have important jobs or classes where we can't exactly just up and make a call to apple, but we can post online instead. How you people over react and are so damn condescending is absolutely asinine.

    A short post takes no time at all. And a post can be done discretely from work (like this post), where as a phone call cannot be made without half the office hearing.

    Just saying.

    If its the truth then you're not kidding.

    And for the record I don't dislike you. I just think you're a troll, your that you may just suffer from a few troll-like tendencies.

    It takes a few seconds to post a question and get answers from people who share their experiences. You can be on hold forever and will get the company line, not suggestions re how you can work around the problem.

    Why does this OP have to defend anything?

    OP, like you found out, the third could be put on another card. Really seems like an ineffective way to sell since they don't restrict it to the ID, but it helps people who are trying to buy as gifts and not buy to resell.
