    i have never pre-ordered a phone before, how dose this work? when june 17th pre-ordering starts do i sign up for the AT&T service at the same time? or do i wait till i get the phone delivered?

    i want to port my phone number from Verizon and am not sure how this pre-ordering will work regarding getting service

    thanks

    Go to apple.com. Sign up for the email that they'll send you as a reminder to pre order your iPhone when pre order is available. That easy. Pick it up, on the 24th.

    Question on in store pick-up. My understanding is if you pre order for in-store pick up they do not charge you for the phone till pick up, yet reserve an iPhone for you. Not sure if I am using the right word here but do they guarantee a phone for you at the store. I am not able to arrive till later on the release day and for them to run out prior to arrival

    apple will do a credit check and sign you up for AT&T automatically. they won't let you order an iphone without pre-approving you for AT&T

    So.. here's a scenario...

    I live about 120 miles from the nearest apple store, and about 100 from the nearest ATT store. Can I preorder online and have it delivered to me?

    Is that correct? Does billing start when you order or when you activate?

    Everything is done through Apple's website. If you're new to AT&T, you will choose your minutes plan, data plan, texting plan and whether you want to transfer your number or get a new one. You can have the phone shipped to your house, and activate it through iTunes; that's if they don't make any changes from last years launch.
