    I just cancelled my pre order for iPhone 4S from Apple.

    My upgrade eligibility date is 11/25 and I read somewhere that ATT corporate stores allow to upgrade on the 1st day of month.

    This means I will save $250 by waiting for 15 more days. I am fine with this.

    I know everyone makes his/her own decision but just thought I will share.

    How much did you originally pay?

    I'm not even sure why you made one in the 1st place considering how close your upgrade date is.

    I am curious to know how the process worked out for you. I ordered my wife a 4S this morning thinking its what she wanted, well she doesn't! Other then going to Apple.com and pulling up my order and clicking cancel, is there anything else I'd need to do??

    I think that was a wise decision OP.
    Just so you know, corporate stores don't sell the iPhone… but I think this rule may still apply to certain stores.

    Not really. It didn't give any indication why he cancelled it, which means probably people clicked on the thread to see if maybe there was information or a situation that could be helpful or apply to their own preorders.

    I guarantee if the thread title was "I cancelled my pre-order because I paid full price but if I wait two weeks I'll be eligible for the discounted price", this thread would have 0 views, because no one cares.

    He told her about all the new features, and how much better it will perform... and then he told her it looks the exact same and she stopped listening. o_O

    chances are you will not be getting one until I am going to guess until the end of Nov as there will be a shortage with a long waiting list.

    After very little consideration, no, make that none, I have decided not to cancel my pre-order.

    The back button is faster then complaining about a useless thread. Just move along.

    Faster than complaining about a post about complaining?

    I'm in the same boat as you. AT&T is telling me Nov 25th for upgrade. Which is why I'm holding off on preordering the 4s. Has it been confirmed that people with the Nov 25th upgrade date will be eligible for a FULL upgrade on Nov 1'st? If that's the case, great news. Thanks for the heads up.

    Did you confirm this with AT&T?? Otherwise you may have wasted your time because your post states that you made this decision based solely on something you read somewhere. I respect your desire to want to save money but I wonder if it's really going to work out the way you think it will. Best luck, though!

    I doubt it. You may get a nice CS rep who does this for you, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    Anyhow, you'll probably be able to walk into any Apple store and walk out with a phone by the end of November.

    I don't think that rule is true as I just read a post earlier about a guy whos wife had an eligible date of october 12th and they wouldn't push it back 4 days so I wouldn't count on getting your date pushed back to the 1st of November. You can call and check. Just hope they will have some then as it will be close to Thanksgiving and black friday and you also have to remember that Apple has ran out of stock already. By late November, I think Apple should have restocked but you never know.

    The mods removed it, probably.
