(a work card) how can I get apple to change it to a personal card?
If you don't HAVE TO change it, I suggest you don't. Any change might get you to the back of the line although it's not supposed to.
Why not just explain the issue to your boss and pay him back?
why dont you just call apple?
I love these pointless threads
cant i just walk into a store and have them charge it on a different card?
Oh, sorry, I didn't realize you already have it in your hands. I thought you meant you ordered it online and the order is being processed. Then, of course, do whatever you need to do.
no i totally have it.
will a store let me change the card- or better yet can I email apple?
What's your stance on pointless comments like your own?
You will probably need to do a "refund". You should let your boss know since refunds don't show up right away. So, if he hasn't noticed the charge yet, he will soon.
Did you use your "gold" card? They should be able to refund and recharge to the other card.
I hate when this happens
I hate it when I use my wife's card instead of my own

Take it to an apple store. They should let you return the phone and re buy it with your credit card.
You obviously can't transfer a charge to another card. You have to return the phone for a refund, then buy it on the correct card.
You can't pay a credit card with a credit card

another victim of having to have it right now?
I have a feeling a meeting with accounting and security will be coming.
if its pointless keep it movin.. its kinda pointless for you to complain this could be helpful info to others. I'm just sayin
What he said. Or cut a check to your company and move on.

When I worked there, we had to do that a few times for people. Like others said, it's a refund, and then buying the product again (with the correct card).
Never did one for an iPhone, though. If you paid full price, I'd guess it's probably not a problem. If you bought it on a subsidy, that could be more tricky, as Apple's systems reach out to your carriers, and your carrier tells Apple how much to charge you. So if you bought it for $199 (example), I'm sure you can get the $199 credit right away, but I don't think your carrier is instantaneously notified of the return/resets your eligibility. So if you try to immediately buy it back (using your normal card), I'm not sure it'll come up with the $199 (example) price.
I think your best bet would be going to an Apple Store and talking to a manager. I'd guess that most of the Specialist (sales folks) probably haven't had experience doing that kind of transaction, and if you call, you're probably not going to find it easy to get a manager on the phone.
I know with my corp card I wouldn't make a 'mistake' like that.
Especially when unauthorized purchases can result in termination...
I love me some Apple, but it ain't worth losing your job over...
^^^ This. Anyone who did this where I work would've been packing up their desk within hours of the charge showing up.
You used your work card to secure the Apple order now you're ******** bricks? Lolz, just fess up buddy.
As others have said you have to refund it and charge it onto another card...however it's not as bad as you think. You don't have to physically return the phone and get another one or anything like that, you can keep your existing phone.
Bring the box and receipt and really all they have to do is refund and then check it out again on the computers, using another card. I've done something similar before.
Go in, get a refund and change it to the right card, and then TELL YOUR BOSS before s/he finds out without you saying anything.
