    Everyone that wants their order shipped somewhere else besides your AT&T billing address, you can do it AFTER your order has been completed processed. You normally have to wait about 10-15 minutes, then you can edit your order.

    So for anyone that ordered a long time ago, log on to your account at Apple and check your order status. From there, if you can CANCEL your order, your order has been processed completely. You can change your shipping address now ;)

    At the moment, Apple's account services is down. So wait until it's up and you're set! :cool:

    Yeah I'm sure. I did ALL 5 of my orders. When you're able to log on, check your order status and view your orders in detail.

    You will see 3 grayed out options:

    Cancel
    Return
    XXXX <---forgot lol

    You will know that your order has been processed when "Cancel" is available.

    Once that's available, you can Edit your shipping address :cool:

    Another one that was able to change their address! :)

    Will they do another check to make sure the AT&T billing and shipping addresses match before shipping, though?

    I was able to change 2 of my orders and I received an email notifying me of the change for each of them as well. Someone on this board also mentioned that they called up customer service and the rep was able to change it as well - no problem.

    Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of. I'm not ordering until it's confirmed somehow that Apple won't ship it to your billing address even if you edit it afterwards. There no way of knowing.

    Don't try to do it now. You've got some time until it ships, and the site's probably being hammered right now anyway, you wouldn't be helping.

    Just do it now and saved almost $40 by having it shipped to Maryland instead of California! Now I'll buy a bumper guilt free! :D

    Did anyone have to do this last year with the 3GS? I don't want to change my address to my work address and then have it not match AT&T's billing address which will then foobar my order.

    +1 .. In fact, I just took the day off !

    I would love to change the address, but I am NOT willing to risk it not shipping or being delayed because of the address change.

    I changed it. I'm braving it folks. It shows correct now where I want it shipped, and since I'm doing it early I don't think I'll have any issues with it.

    Don't the billing and shipping addresses need to be the same? I don't think it has to do anything with AT&T. I'd rather have it shipped elsewhere, but I don't want to risk anything.

    When I ordered yesterday, it said it had to be mailed to the AT&T billing address. It doesn't have anything to do with the credit card billing address.

    Why would they if they allow me to edit it? I may call Apple to get to the bottom of this.

    I'm so tempted to change it now. I'm thinking that now the order is in and in Apple's hands, the AT&T billing address matching to the shipping address doesn't matter anymore. Just during checkout, right?

    Otherwise, why would you be able to change it? And, wouldn't there be some kind of warning message if you did?

    I think I'm doing it!

    Someone called Apple yesterday, and they changed the shipping address over the phone.

    I just tried to call Apple about this and they hung up with me due to high call volumes. I'll try back later for sure and post what they say. I bet it won't be an issue.

    Same. Then when I got through and selected option 2 and entered my order number. It again gave the high volume message.

    I'd like to have this shipped to work, but I'd like confirmation on where it's going to be shipped.
