    Charge me 200 for the phone if I decide to keep it or charge me full price? the statement says 200 only..(I cancelled my online order so i can buy it in person).

    same thing with me, did exact same thing, got my iphone yesterday, i have NO charge on my CC lol.. epic..
    i dont wanna sound like a douchebag but im keeping it until they charge me 700 $ for it, then they can have it back. i just dont know how long that will take to figure out.

    i ordered online, became backordered, went to store, store canceled the order, got iphone in store, then just received mine in mail... no charge anywhere. on my order SLIP inside the box it says
    Cust order # NULL
    invoice #
    your order #
    then charges for the iphone etc...

    makes you wonder how many people this happend to...

    I mean if you want to risk it go for it, but i promise that you will be charged for the phone one time or another, especially since the phone was made for your number..Mine came with a sticker with my number on the outside of it..So I can pretty much assure the phone is linked to me and I don't want to keep a phone and get a surprise 3 months later..I just want to know if i will get billed 200 because if thats the case then I'm keeping the phone paying the 200.

    idc about 200, i dont wanna pay 700. so if they charged me 200 i am keeping it to. will keep it no remorse. but if they take 700, then im calling them up, saying hey, here you go.

    It happened to me and I called them, said once system updates and they find out they will charge you full price for the phone not the upgrade discount of 200. They also said you have 14 days to send it back.

    Legally, if you're sent something by a company WITH YOUR NAME ON IT (misdeliveries don't count!) you're allowed to keep it.

    How that works if you originally asked for it then changed your mind, I'd want to ask a lawyer. Logically I would assume that you did all in good faith to stop the shipment from being made, it's not your fault their system was slow. Whether that counts as "unsolicited" for purposes of the law is another thing entirely.

    I'd ask a lawyer friend if you have one, or the post office (the PMG of your local branch should know, or be able to find out). Be sure to get it in writing.

    the 2 week rule that vincent said doesnt apply to use, we have not been told ANYTHING about returning the phone, no call nothing stipulating that they are going to be charging us full price. they have to ask us first or let us know before they charge us and not be able to return it, thats why im not worried about keeping it.

    i mean id just want to sell it..so I'm willing to pay the 200 no problem.

    ----------

    I want an answer from them so ill call tomorrow...But people who plan things like ^^^, you won't win..so don't bother..if you got the phone on mistake,and they say you will be billed 700 then return it..dont fight att,especially if you plan on selling the phone.

    thats exactly what i said, if im billed 700 il return it, if i never do, idc. keeping it. im not going to call and them tell me return it, going to let them either charge me or contact me asking for return. then charge me, not going to give it away and possibility they never catch it.

    This logic is very childish. You want to get a phone,possible use or sell it, and if they DO catch you,you end up screwed..if they catch you and prove the phone is being used,you do know they will just charge you 700...I plan on selling the phone,so I don't want to sell and have to go back and track the buyer...just call and ask from a blocked number and say you have been hearing a lot of what if.

    Dude, what comes around goes around. I'm not going to call you names or anything like that but your trying to be grimy and it will catch up to you. Just do the right call them up and tell them to pick it up. You'll know in your heart you did the right thing and who knows maybe something good will happen to you unexpectedly.

    This goes for both of you guys.

    isn't it stealing if you keep the phone? You didn't pay for it and you know it and you are keeping it. You will probably get charged for it sooner or later and if you don't pay I guess you can get in trouble with the law because it's probably a felony to keep that phone you didn't pay for. It's stealing.

    Yea, i started believing in doing good and especially when it comes to ATT..you don't think a big name company will have thought of everything...If i get a person saying 200 I will get a written statement sent to my email..I will use that in court if I have to.

    But Did you know that email is not an official legal document and probably won't stand up in court. You need a fax or a written letter .

    record the phone conversation THIS DOES work in 80% of the states, and only 1 side of the conversation has to know about the recording *(aka you) in most states.

    Please use caution in following this BAD ADVICE.

    These laws are referred to as “one-party consent” statutes, and as long as you are a party to the conversation, it is legal for you to record it. (Nevada also has a one-party consent statute, but the state Supreme Court has interpreted it as an all-party rule.)

    Twelve states require, under most circumstances, the consent of all parties to a conversation. Those jurisdictions are California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington. Be aware that you will sometimes hear these referred to inaccurately as “two-party consent” laws. If there are more than two people involved in the conversation, all must consent to the taping.

    Regardless of the state, it is almost always illegal to record a conversation to which you are not a party, do not have consent to tape, and could not naturally overhear.

    Federal law and most state laws also make it illegal to disclose the contents of an illegally intercepted call or communication.
