    Wife has changed her mind on the phone she wants. How long after I cancel the order will I be able to preorder. The phone is already on the 3-4 week period and so would the changed phone so that's no big deal.

    Alternatively, if it is not restored instantly can I use a third line I have and then just activate it for her number when it arrives? And then upgrade the third line to Next the following year when I want to upgrade it?

    Don't know who you are doing it through, but i placed a order last night at 1230am for my wife and it only shows the 128gb iPhone 6 was available. She only needs a 64gig, as she has a 16gb now. This morning it showed 64gb avail. so i took a gamble and canceled the order with apple. It then would not let me place the order, so i panicked, but within ten minutes i was able to replace the order for the 64gb phone (Using att next plan).


    Sorry to clarify, last night i ordered the phone with apple using att next plan, this morning, i canceled the apple order and replaced a new order ten minutes later, all good. the first few times i tried, it said, sorry there is already a order under this phone number, but then it must have reset.

    Yes to clarify I am going through the Apple Store app or I don not want to use ATT unless I need to

    I called Apple and canceled my AT&T Next order. My eligibility was restored within five minutes and new order confirmed in about 10.

    Not sure if you care about your phone number being on display, just thought I'd point it out.
