    So in the craziness of last night and Apple not coming up for hours I managed to finally get my order in for a Space Grey 128GB 6+, but it's not coming on launch day (7-10 days) and since I'm working on a music tour, I don't really have the ability to receive a shipment without it being risky and going to a hotel. I really need to do a store pickup to get a new phone.

    I'm planning on camping out in San Antonio TX where we've got a day off the night of the 18th to try and score one on launch day, but my question is - can I buy a phone on AT&T at the apple store on launch day and then cancel my order, or will they overlap and cause issues? I really want to keep my order in just in case I turn up with nothing after the night of camping.

    If you already have a NEXT order on that line you will have to cancel it before you can order another iPhone via the AT&T NEXT program. If you keep the one you have now it will show that you are not eligible for NEXT on the 19th.

    Your going to have issues cause you already used up your upgrade eligibility. You'll have to cancel and make sure your eligibility is reset so you won't have a problem when you pick up. So far the reset can take 2 business days to reset from what I researched on my own and talking to att rep. I'm in the same boat as well.

    Seeing the demand for the iphone+ I think you need to be there early as hell on the 18th to be the first handful of people to get a 64gb, 128gb iphone+ without a pre-order. i don't think i want to do that so I might just wait it out.

    You can cancel your order with ATT yourself here or by calling. I had mine cancel by AT&T rep. and the system said I was eligible for an upgrade again after the cancellation/reset went into effect took about 5 min... I had order the NEXT previously with ATT...Those who say it may take up to 2 days mine took less than 5 min to reset online. I re-order the iPhone via Apple site as I had a reservation spot secure from last night now ships 9/19 :D Same with Apple you can cancel the order soon before it ships and you should be good to go.
