    I recieved my iphone 3gs white 16gb in the mail today via a att pre-order althought i still have not gotten charged for it. about a week ago they charged me the amount then gave it straight back the next day. really confused on what happened.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    lol alot of pre order screw ups. Yes you did until the charge you. They probably will though. Maybe. Amazing...I never get two phones or a charge screwed up. Usually I'm the one getting screwed.

    Same here still haven't received a charge. wondering if they are going to just bill it to my account or what. No way they could let that many fall through the cracks.

    Not sure about AT&T, but I did have that happen with Sprint. I ordered my Blackberry online, then changed my mind and decided I wanted it that day, so I went to the store, who said they'd cancel my online order. Two days later, I had a package on my doorstep, containing a Blackberry Curve 8330, the twin to my curve I'd bought at the store two days prior.
    I called Sprint and they said "no, we didn't ship you a phone". I said I"m looking at it. They said "Not from us, there's nothing on file, the order was canceled". I said fine. I still have a Blackberry Curve, in the box, waiting for Sprint to realize I have it and agree to accept it.

    Yeah, I've thought about that, but I'm thinking that as soon as I sell it on Ebay for $200, I'll get a bill from Sprint saying "Hey, you've got an extra curve, send it back, otherwise, here's a bill for $499.99". That's what keeps it in my possession.

    you should not have called. its noted in your account that they cancelled the order...now they know you have the phone if they ever charge you and you try to fight it

    I bought my 3GS on launch day (not a pre-order) at an AT&T store with my Amex and the charge has still not showed up on my bill.
    I'm sure it will show up someday. My luck isn't that good.
