    Long story short, I preordered an iPhone 5 through Apple and used the wrong cell number. Correct account details, etc etc, wrong cell #. It's arriving tomorrow. Anyone else ever do that? Know what's going to happen? The Indian call center that I had to speak with said I'd need to make a new order, but I feel like there has to be a way to get my phone activated on the right number.

    if the number you meant to use is on your plan you can just do this:

    This is from AT&T's website.

    Contact your carrier to correct the porting number.

    Ditched AT&T for Verizon :-\ Thanks for the tip though.

    And you think they'll be able to fix it without a problem? It seems like an easy enough request. I mean I guess that's my plan, just wondering if anyone else can reassure me they've done this and it works.
