WTF?!

That was awful. I live in Las Vegas. I was pre-approved. I stayed up past my usual 10 pm bedtime. No biggie but damn.

At 12:01 and for several minutes after I tried to get into the Apple Store using the app and it said there was a problem with my prep-approval but to use the app to buy because I am still qualified.

What?

So I start the ordering process from scratch and the damned app thinks I’m in the UK! It’s showing me UK pricing. I can’t change it.

After trying anything and everything I can—too many to list at the moment—I delete the damned app entirely.

Once I was able to download it again—which was not easy, the App Store said I was in the wrong country. WTF?!!!—it finally opened up and took me to the check out screen with my pre-approval information already there. I checked out. At 12:25 am

Delivers on 9/21.

Horrible.

Anyone else have problems like that?

If delivers on 9/21 then not so horrible maybe??
I’m waaaaay surprised it’s 9/21 and you can best believe I screen-capped that delivery date and the order details. Still no email confirmation and it’s 12:39 am.

And yes—still horrible.

12:41 edit: confirmation e-email has arrived.

Goodnight!!!

This is weird and not related to ordering but I had a similar issue a few days ago when I went to open YouTube and view a video I had previously viewed that morning and all that week. It said it was not available in my country. It was the weirdest thing. I got home and reset my phone and everything worked as it should. I was on LTE when it happened.

No hotel—I live in Las Vegas. Was at home using the same WiFi as usual. Hmmm.
it would be funny if you have a vpn and its routed to outside to that country haha
