    Can you not just go to att.com and change your billing address?

    Is this from the Apple store preorder system?

    yea, I don't get it! why would they go out of their way to do that? why do they care where it ships? maybe AT&T will be different.

    That's what I am going to do. And then change it back after I receive the iPhone 4.

    Something else you can try: AFTER you place the order, go into your Order Status, pull up the order, and change the shipping address. The Apple Store web site let me do this without any complaints.

    It remains to be seen, of course, if they will honor this change. But I've got printouts of everything just in case.

    Darn, I was planning to pick a different address so I could get it delivered on the 24th at my hotel. Is ATT offering same day delivery for the 24th?

    Well I've made it all the way to the end at ATT and the won't let me change my shipping address, and Apple won't either. I no longer live at my billing address, so now I'm concerned. I guess I'll have to do an in-store pickup, but I'm not seeing an option for that on the ATT site. Changing my address seems scary too =\ Ughhhhh. Sitting at waiting screens for 1 hour to come up with these dumb issues is frustrating.

    If I change my billing address with at&t, will it be a problem that it does not match the billing address on my credit card?

    No. I just got off the phone with an AT&T customer service rep (Premiere Business acct) and they said it's not a problem. When THEY take orders the addresses have to match, when you place an order online it does not. Two different systems.

    AT&T's Premier store page for me only lists a slew of 3GS iPhones still. WTF?
