    What information do I need to preorder an iPhone for an upgrade on my line (I'm on a family plan)? Will I need my SSN or the main account holders SSN? What other info will I need. Also, when I preorder an iPhone from the Apple online store, is 1-day shipping an option?

    I'm planning on preordering the next iPhone at 12:01am right when they're available for preorder lol so I want to have any and all info available when the time comes. :)

    Thanks!

    Just looked on Apple's online store for what you need to upgrade to a 4S and it appears you need the account holders last four digits of their SSN, your mobile number, the billing password, and billing zip code.

    Is that really all you need? I thought there was more.

    Have you tried calling them or your carrier?

    You'd think you'd be signing your life away when you purchase an Apple product.:D

    Pretty much all you need right there, well along with a credit card or some form of accepted payment. It's a fairly straight forward process.

    Try logging on to your account today.

    I have ATT and it requires my password to log into my account and order something.

    Well I meant when preordering/upgrading via the Apple online store, not through my carriers website. My CC info is already on file on my Apple ID so I don't have to input any payment methods since that's already there.

    So, what about the shipping? Is that predefined, or is 1-day shipping an option for preorders via the Apple online store?

    I should've posted that I was wondering all of this based on preordering through the Apple online store, not through my carriers website.
