    I was wondering if it would be a problem if im at a different location other than my billing address for my Debit Card. Is it alright if i had it shipped elsewhere?

    Doesn't the iPhone ship to the address on the AT&T account?

    No. You can choose to ship your newly preordered iPhone anywhere you want.

    Is that somewhat new? The last 2 iPhones I ordered from apple would only ship to the account holders address. If they changed it that would be great! Otherwise I will just have to change the address on the account prior to ordering...

    When I tried to pre-order my 3GS, the billing address and shipping address weren't the same, and AT&T made a huge deal out of it (as in it took days to change). Eventually we got it straightened out after we verified everything.

    I searched and I read the PDF, but I can't seem to figure out this scenario. I will be on holiday starting the 24th. Is it possible to have the phone shipped to a hotel in another state? Has anyone heard of this situation? All the notices say "home or business," but what about a 3rd option? I kind of think they will say no as it seems kind of sketchy.

    Is it just me or did i read the press release wrong.

    Let me know your thoughts. This consirned my mother and sister as well so would like to know for sure also

    My thoughts are out of state is not going to fly
    In state you could say business and put in an alternative address.
    Won't know for sure until tomorrow i guess.

    How are they going to know whether that hotel isn't your business? You can ship...
    Anywhere, people.


    They have to say that. You will get it June 24th unless the delivery company is overloaded or makes some kind of mistake.

    Well we know that is not 100% correct, because I am sure if you order it to say to a U.K address I am sure they won't honor that. So I am not sure how far out from the billing address they will allow.

    I spoke to an AT&T rep last night and was told the phone MUST be shipped to the same address that is listed as the billing address on your debit/credit card. She said that you could change that billing address to the location you wanted it shipped to for a few days until the phone shipped and then change it back to work around that problem, but she did assure me that the iPhone must be shipped to the billing address of the card used when pre-ordering. Hope this helps, I'm just relaying what I was told.

    but, does that mean the account holders' address on the AT&T account?

    One more thing..

    Sometimes the credit card people will deny a charge or get upset if you don't ship it to your billing address. It's a good idea to call the CC people beforehand.

    This is exactly what my mom was told by At&t and apple the other day.
    I was surprised by it which is why i have been questioning it on the forums.

    Preordered

    So I got mine preordered and it forced me to ship to AT&T billing address, my home. However now that I check my order status it allows me to change the shipping address. Not sure if I want ship to my work (easier for me) or home and potentially screw up 24th delivery. Any of you all have any insight?

    When I placed my actual order with Apple it said I had to ship it to the AT&T account address but once I had the order placed I just went back into my Apple account and changed the shipping address for the order to my office.
