    I apologize if this has been gone over already, i didnt feel like searching through 10000s of recent iphone threads.





    I ordered on launch day via At&t ( three phones ). They did a pre auth on all 3 phones, but yesterday they released the funds back into my account.

    Now today i get an email with tracking # that my phones have shipped, they are currently on truck.

    But at&t did not charge my account, is this a common issue to what others may be experiencing?

    Thoughts?

    Thanks

    The same thing has happened with both of my phones. Had two temporary holds that dropped off right before they shipped. One phone came today and the other is scheduled for tomorrow. I've never heard of someone shipping something without charging your card for it.

    I'm sure they will get around to it, seems like everything at AT&T is in slow motion since last week.

    Don't worry they will take your money soon enough.

    Doubtful, 2 out of those 3 phones are being shipped out as they were sold for profit on ebay.


    But yeh, it's really strange that they shipped them out without taking the money from my account.

    Hmm, so ... when the phones get activated through the numbers i upgraded from it gets charged

    Like i said, 2 out of those 3 phones were sold on ebay and are getting activated by somebody else under a different number.

    are the phones linked to activation charge, or is it the actual cell phone number?

    confused.

    Mine was delivered yesterday morning say 8:50am. I noticed the charge on my acct at 5:30am when I got up. So I was charged before I even got it and activated. However, I checked my bank few hours before I went to sleep that night and the charge wasn't there. So I got charged sometime late night 22nd, very early morning 23rd.

    My iPhone was delivered yesterday and activated, a day has passed and it's launch day now. My (debit) card STILL has not been charged yet. Then again, I never got those authorization charges either.

    SO WEIRD. I might give them a call this weekend if nothing changes.

    I was precharged last Wednesday, then the funds were removed from my account Saturday, I received the phone yesterday early afternoon, and my card has still not been re-charged.
