    I preordered one last night but the line at the store near me is tiny so I am waiting. I was eligible for a partial discount (early upgrade) but that was used earlier. Is there anything I can do?

    You used the subsidized price on your online order so if you wait in line, you'll have to pay the full amount.

    Your option is to pay full price.

    You can try to cancel online, but the eligibility will take time to reset

    Last year when people tried to beat the system (order online and wait in line) the reset took 24+ hours, sometimes even longer.

    You are really just wasting a ton of your time. If that isn't valuable enough then stand in line and pay full price for a phone that you just ordered online, at the subsidized pricing.
