    Just some info for those members that may not know...... If you are a current customer of AT&T / Verizon (and I'm sure this is the same with Sprint) you will NOT be able to upgrade your phone during the Pre-Order Process tonight if your bill is marked in there system as "Past Due".

    So if you are gonna pre-order tonight Make Sure your account is paid or doesn't not have any kind of past due bill.

    This goes without saying but even if you have a bill due and say its due say Friday the 14th.... Your Fine .... It's only if you bill was due before today and your account is now in "Past Due" Status.

    Most guys know this but just a reminder and for those who don't I hope this info helped.

    If my bill was past due I most likely wouldn't have the money to pay for the new phone.

    You be surprised what some guys try and get away with.... heck I just read a post for a guy wanting to re-order the friggin phone but he has no money and doesn't get paid till next Thursday.

    Some of these get desperate.

    But for those guys wanting this phone and say may have a bill that wait to pay till they get paid on the 15th that say normally becomes past due on like the 5th.... they will need to pay now to get there pre-order.

    I am in the same boat.... my billing cycle ends on the 16th and I get a bill on like the 20 something.... I pay mortgage and big bills on the First so I wait to my bill on the 15th of the next month and my bill is actually past due on the 5th and I pay it basically late 10 days every month.

    So in this case as of yesterday it would have been past due.... but since I'm gonna pre-order I had to pay essentially early cause I normally wouldnt pay it till the 15th.

    So if you want this bad boy....Make sure you are not Past Due.

    Guy in front of me in line last year was past due. When the Apple employee entered his account info to make purchase he was denied. Dude, was pissed beyond belief

    Because of a billing error on their end my payment did not get posted correctly and I missed out on preordering a Verizon iPhone 4. I made sure everything is in order this time.

    I remember once my bill was past due because I apparently accidentally sent a payment for a dollar less than the actual payment amount. I thankfully fixed that before any issues arose... But yea, my point is: **** happens
