My apple preorders are both set for Nov 17th to 24th delivery dates. I was planning on going to the Apple store on Friday and see if I can secure the phones there, but do I need to cancel my preorders beforehand if I'm using the ATT next plan, since both trade ins have been used?

Thanks in advance.

What happens if you go to Att site and check upgrade availability? IF it shows no upgrade available then you would probably my need to cancel.

Might want to call Att to be sure

If you're not posting from a line waiting to get into an Apple store then you're too late to get one. :D

What time are you getting in line. I’m in the same situation.

If you paid in full, I would definitely suggest lining up and canceling only after you get the new phone. Since you bought it in full, simply canceling the order should be cake.

Check with the specific local Apple Store you're going to. They may have different rules about lining up overnight, or what time and location the line starts.
