    I'm assuming the billing address is your parents address, in which case. no. You would have to ship it to their address.

    Last year for the 4S launch, I was able to call Apple after sending in my preorder to have them change the shipping address.

    All I know is a whole lot of people got their orders cancelled last year who selected a shipping address that was different from the carrier's billing address.

    Right, you need to go on the carriers website and change the billing address to the address you want the phone shipped to, then change it back.

    And you have to hope that your parents' phone bill doesn't get printed/mailed during that window or you'll be getting next month's bill in the mail. ;)
