    I have tried AT&T website and it will not let me preorder since the billing is a PO Box and doesn't give me the option to change shipping. Unable to get through Apple store yet, so I don't know if it is a problem there as well.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Just wait and preorder through Apple. I got my iPad delivered to my work address while my billing is my home address and didn't have any issues.

    Thanks

    To have a healthy marriage, you need to have at least one credit card that is billed to the office. :D

    My bad man, I finally got an order through and saw the small print that says: "iPhone orders must be shipped to your AT&T billing address."

    Looks like I'm gonna have to go to a store on launch day.

    For pre-ordering from Apple it will ship to your AT&T billing address.

    You can change the AT&T billing address by going to the AT&T site then choosing 'My Profile' and changing the address.

    I had to do this earlier, it will only take a few minutes to update on Apple's site (you may need to remove then re-add the iPhone to your Cart).

    For the record I just went through the process again on AT&T and NOWHERE does it state that Billing and Shipping have to be the same, it only says NO P.O or International.

    Will Apple's site let you change the shipping address? It gives me the option to do so.

    I've been trying to figure this out too. After you preorder, you can change the mailing address (according to a coworker... I'm still trying to preorder). Who knows if that will actually work though.

    I want it mailed to my work address...

    I tried to pre-order from Apple, and it said that I had to ship to my AT&T billing address. I temporarily changed my AT&T billing address and am trying to get the iPhone in my cart.

    I preordered through ATT and I was able to enter in a different shipping address. I am on a FAN account though so I'm not sure if it's allowed for those type of accounts and not others?

    I was able to enter a different billing address, but I used the premier site as well

    WTF, att is stating the exact same thing as apple... that you can only get it shipped to your billing address.. this is the dumbest policy i have seen...
