    I preordered my black iphone 4 on June 15th and got $257 held by Apple. Now I got that $257 back in my account. It still says "prepared for shipment". I have a feeling it's going to get cancelled soon. Damn!

    Well normally, that was an authorization that is to be returned to you after 3 or more days since they cannot hold the funds for more than a certain number of days. Then, they charge you again when the phone ships.

    Yep, what happened to you is normal. Also happened to me and everybody else who preordered.

    well i think that since they charged you, you made it into the first set or phones.

    Yea that one slipped my mind for a seond lol. 24th will suck in that aspect. Im expecting the worst. Will have delivered to work though so wont really try to activate till i get home that night. But then i forgot cant even play around with it till you activate it..... May have to try to activate it. Worst case I'll still have my 3gs anyway.

    I'm gonna try and activate at night instead. Pretty sure the activation servers will be jammed all morning and afternoon.

    Why does it seem like everyone who orders an iPhone has never used a credit card before?

    Same here, except for $209 (AL sales tax rate lower) on a Visa. Banks will hold the funds for as long as they are told too. I've had funds held as long as three weeks before.

    I'm jealous of your sales tax rates. I'm paying $60. CA sucks.

    Ouch!

    Mine is 4% on the amount I actually pay ($199 not $499) and I live in the county. But even if I lived in a city it would only be 8% of the amount I pay.

    When compared to the rest of the country, Alabama's tax rates on just about everything is lower. The only state tax that isn't is the income tax and I'd vote to get rid of it in a heart beat.

    That's cool, I was born and raised in Pennsylvania which is probably pretty similar to Alabama so I think I can relate. I don't really care about the politics, I just like it better in California, because of higher wages, beaches, and awesome weather. :D
