    what are the chances I'll actually get both at 2 year contract price?

    Apple already debited my card. Nothing yet from AT&t

    Actually you might get both orders cancelled! :eek::eek:

    The system will check your upgrade status as part of the processing steps before shipping.

    It happens every year, was this an accident or did you plan to order from both against the same line?

    I hope you didnt try to sign up multiple times on purpose lol.

    If so they both should be cancelled.

    Did you order both as upgrades to the same phone number? Or did you upgrade one phone and add a second line?

    Really? Four hours? Have you even tried to call? It doesn't take four hours. Apparently, you're not bright enough to even do a little research like calling the company to find out what's going on. Instead you want anonymous people on the Internet to tell you what's going to happen?

    Yeah. Real smart.

    I have been an AT&T customer for 12+ years and have never been on hold for anywhere near that long. Next excuse.

    I see three possibilities:

    1) You receive both phones, but your credit card gets charged full no-contract price for one of them.

    2) One of the orders gets cancelled before it ships.

    3) Both orders get cancelled before they ship.

    If I were you I would proactively try to cancel one of the orders now to guarantee that you at least get one phone.

    Chances are the Apple order is OK but the AT&T order will be cancelled. I tried to place a second order at AT&T at the full price ($749 for the 32GB) after making my Apple order at the subsidized price (as I really want the no-commitment version), but the system wouldn't process it (it just kept cancelling it or wouldn't let me place it in the first place). I might try again after I've actually received and activated the Apple order (as it should switch off AT&T's system that says that I have one pending order) and try again, or else I might just get one in the store assuming it dies down before the 30-day rescission period ends on my new contract (10/14/12).
