    I placed my order on the 10th, the next day my credit card 'available balance' went down by the correct amount but no actual charge took place, on the 18th the 'available balance' went back up, on the 19th I got my iphone delivered to my home, I activated it, it all works great. As of today, my credit card has not been charged.... :D

    Any body with a similar problem?? Ideas? Suggestions? :)

    Thanks to your OP, you're now on the hook to notify them to charge your CC (if the other thread with the duplicate iPhone order is any indication) :rolleyes:

    Just know they can charge your card, and don't be surprised when they do.

    Hmm, interesting situation, seems to have become a seemingly common occurrence.

    Same thing on my debit card.. they will charge you.. trust me, it's just delayed I'm sure with the many thousands of people that pre-ordered.

    Same thing happened to me. I know they will charge me eventually but how are they shipping out phones that haven't even been paid for yet. Doesn't make sense. Especially the iPhone. I paid with debit. Confused. I hate having money just sitting in my account that I can't spend

    Some places will do this to see if there is room on the credit card. I have this happen a lot with big purchases. When I got my Macbook they did this to my credit card and what got me was I was going to just pay it off the next day over the phone, but I couldn't. It took about a week for it to show up and when it did I just paid it off then.

    I guess the OP has never heard of internal auditors right. :rolleyes:

    They are gonna charge you eventually and surprise if you used a debit since they sent that preauth through it may just go through and blow your bank account up. Don't spend that money bc AT&T wants it! :eek:
