I did a quick Mroogle search and didn't come up with anything similar to my situation. The brief version is I bought my first iPhone on July 2nd. The charge appeared on my credit card that night. The iPhone shipped to my local ATT store where I picked it up and activated it on July 6th. Then 2-3 days later the charge for my iPhone disappeared from my online credit card statement. The paper bill for my credit card charges for July came about 1 and half or two weeks ago and there wasn't a single iPhone charge. The ATT bill for July has arrived and shows the new iPhone data plan and $18 early upgrade charge but doesn't show any type of charge for the iPhone. So I was wondering if this has happened to or if anyone has heard of this happening to anyone else? If not, then hopefully I got a 'free' iPhone out of it. I should also note that that I am on a family plan with my parents and brother. The same thing happened to my brother also with his iPhone. The new data plan and upgrade charge but no charge for the actual iPhone.
