    Strange, must depend on what type of account it is. I am a business premier account or some BS and was able to use any shipping addy except for P.O or international.

    Same here. I shipped to work instead of billing address.

    I posted this in another thread but relevant here

    I just got off the phone with an AT&T customer service rep (Premiere Business acct) and they said it's not a problem. When THEY take orders the addresses have to match, when you place an order online it does not (for Premiere accounts at least). Two different systems.

    I dont have a business premiere account, mine is just a personal account. Seemed like i would have to change my billing address to get it shipped to my work. I cant get through to preorder on apple, anyone know if you can type the address in through apple pre orders?

    I got my order in via the AT&T site yesterday at around 5am. If I had known I couldn't change my shipping address through them, I would've ordered via Apple's site. My coworkers who preordered the new iPhone on the Apple site have been able to update their shipping to have the phone sent to work. I really wish AT&T would allow for the same thing. I know it's a bit silly to complain about this, but it is a bit frustrating to have to wait another day or two to get the phone after dealing with the ordering shenanigans.

    Apple is the same way, they have to ship to the AT&T billing address.

    To fix this I just went to AT&T's website and changed my billing address to where I need it delivered (was set to my parent's house from when I lived there, never changed it).

    It's easy to change on the website under "My Profile". I'd imagine after you receive the iPhone you can change it back with no problems.

    This is precisely what I did.

    I did this as well as I'll be out of state on the 24th. As an unintended bonus (I think), I'm not having to pay CA sales tax on the unsubsidized price since it is being shipped to WA.
