    Apple has authorized two $1 charges on my credit card. Like most everyone else, I had to try a couple times before the system would take the payment, however, it only gave me an order number and "successful ordering" page once. I have not yet received my email confirmation. I know everything is wacky with the store right now, but has anyone come across this before?

    I was one of the apparently few bucky lastards who actually got an order in via AT&T. I'm glad my dog had to poop at 5AM, so I was awake and online.

    AT&T has charged my card the full enchilada of $467 and some change for two 16GBs and a case. No $1, just slam, full charge.

    But hey, at least that gives me confidence that my order is "in".

    I have 3 $1 charges pending, plus a $367.15 charge from Apple which is for the phone itself. I'll get the $1 charges dealt with later - at least I have an order # and I know they charged me for the phone.

    The $1 charges are generally pre-authorization charges -- essentially making sure your credit card CAN be charged and is not fake or that it has sufficient funds. It is also worth noting that they are usually either charged back, or applied toward the full purchase price.

    Same here, as well as the $320ish charge for the order. That will quite often happen when I pay for gasoline, so I'm just going to monitor those over the next few days. The charges don't actually show up, but my credit card says I have about $1,000 less than I should based on the charges I have made. I even got a call from fraud prevention to make sure my card hadn't been stolen.

    This is one of the many reasons you should NEVER pay online with a debit card. Most of us have more credit available than cash in our checking accounts. Credit is also easier to get back than money from checking.

    You were already charged? That's weird, because when I ordered mine off the AT&T website it said that no transactions will show up until the phone ships.

    Yeah, I read that too. But, She Who Must Be Obeyed said she saw the item as a charge, not a pre-auth, in online banking this evening. If I get the phones, I'm cool with it. If not, I will join the hoards when we pillage the castle and storm the walls.

    Dibs on a pitchfork.

    2 x $1

    and

    1 x unit price


    not even going to worry about the $1 charges.

    still irritated that my ebay sells turned out to have 9% final price fees :mad:

    I placed two different orders, about 4 hours apart and both have been billed in full.

    My total is $216.17.
    I have three $1 charges, and one $216.16 charge (not a typo, two-hundred dollars and sixteen cents).
    I think this happened when I ordered my 3G, then when it was shipped, it was all cleared and I was charged $216.17.

    I have 2 $1 charges from placing order with AT&T. But still no email from them and nothing showing with order status page.

    Did you have to have a total of $434.33 in your account? Or was the pending of $216.16 just pushed through?

    Well, I had much more than that in the acct, but I think they just withdrew the hold and charged the $216.17.

    I now have three $1 charges. My available credit seems to be about $300 lower than it should be, but there's no indication why. I don't know what's going on.

    They are just Pending charges used for authorization, they should drop off in a few days, along with the charge for the full price of the phone. Apple will charge your card the full amount when the phone ships.
