I purchased my white iPhone 16g on 9/29. I am like most others and stuck in the 14-21 day timeframe for shipping.

However just now I saw on the Apple site that my local store has them in stock right now. When I ordered mine through AT&T I had to add a line since my current 2 lines are not up for upgrade.

Can I get my phone through apple store and still make this all work with my new line? Can I cancel the AT&T order? How does this work?

Call AT&T customer service and see if you can cancel the order. If so, then you can can order on Apple.com, reserve it for in store pick up, and set it up as a new line on an existing account. But, it all starts with you calling AT&T to see what you can do first.
