    Hi All,

    I got a 128GB 6plus and I am picking up in store. I have an order number, but no email confirmation or charge on my CC. Is this normal for instore pickup?

    Thanks,

    Normal for pre-order night. They will catch up on everything in the morning.

    Give it time. Many people just ordered. If you have a confirmation number you are set.

    I got my confirmation email for in store pickup already, but I was one of the first to get an order in on the app.

    I got a confirmation email instantly, but no charge on my card yet. Called Chase to make sure it wouldn't be flagged as fraud and they said I won't have an issue.

    When you preorder for in store pick up does that mean you are guaranteed in for thAT DAY?

    Yes it means you've purchased it and they will have one on hold with your name on the shrink wrapped box.

    I think In-Store pickup will be easier for me. Don't have to wait all day for Fed Ex to show up.

    So, does this mean there wont be shipping details to track (like if it were being shipped to me directly)? We don't have to watch UPS, or whatever, to see where it is... because it will just go to the store for pick-up?

    We did preorder and pickup in store for the 5 after it came out. It was such a pleasant experience. We walked up to the store with a line wrapped way down the mall (i would estimate around 100 people or more) all with tired and irritated faces. We walked up to the other side of the entrance and there was a line of about 3 people in front of us. The employee went, grabbed the iphone and had it set up for us and we were in and out within what seemed like about 15 minutes.

    It took a little longer to get out of the store because Glen from the Walking Dead just happened to be getting his iphone that day right next to us. We told him how we were huge fans and he was super cool. He asked our names and told us how he really appreciated us watching the show. He was very humble.

    Overall it was a very good experience and I am just hoping that next Friday will be just as good of an experience when I pick mine up.

    In the order confirmation email, it says you can call your carrier to add somebody.

    I did instore as well. 64GB Space Gray Plus. I got a confirmation email, and a "0.00" charge to my account, from Apple instantly. I can only assume that that is the hold that they place, although I'm not sure how it works cause it was for literally no money.

    If someone could explain that to me, that would be great.

    so as long as you're an authorized user on the wireless account, they will let you pick it up? Nothing needs to be done to add a pickup contact on Apple's end? I used my wife's apple account to order the phone since her app was actually able to get through last night to order

    When you called Chase, did they see that you had made a purchase through the Apple Store, though?

    My online account shows the transaction as pending, not charged (and for $0.00, as pending payments often show), but when I called a representative, they had no record of any transaction with the Apple Store this morning. Granted, it was only about 35 minutes after I ordered, but still..it showed on my account online, you'd think Chase would have been able to see it?

    Either way, just concerned now that something didn't work quite right.

    Nope, the last transaction they saw was one I made earlier in the day. I still don't have any charges or holds from Apple, not even for $0.00.

    I have in store pick up set for mine as well...really hoping that its not a super long wait. Would be even better if pre-order for in store pick-up could go in at midnight!

    Ok..maybe this is more on the Apple-being-slammed side, and less on the Chase-has-screwed-up side?

    Fingers crossed!

    I ordered via the Apple Store App and selected "In-Store Pick Up" but when I got the email confirmation, it says delivery. I made sure to correctly select the store pick up option, and it showed my correct mall and everything. Why does it say delivery? Anyone have the same issue?

    Do you think we can switch it to in-store pick up by calling Apple or waiting for the "Order Status" page to start working again?
