I just tried a mock pre-order on an iPhone 5c to familiarize myself with the ordering process for the 5s on Friday. I elected to create a brand new, invididual account with a new phone number. I am getting the following error messages: "Theres something you should know... Based on the information you provided, you will only be able to pick up your iPhone in an Apple Retail Store. AT&T may also require a deposit in order for you to purchase a new iPhone; deposit can only be paid in an Apple Retail Store. You can still continue with your iPhone purchase on the Apple Online Store by selecting the Personal Pickup option, and then picking up your order in an Apple Retail Store. If the Personal Pickup option is not currently available, your iPhone will be removed from your Cart and youll be able to purchase an iPhone, depending on availability, in an Apple Retail Store." and "There's something you should know... Based on the information you provided, were unable to complete your iPhone order at this time. A deposit may be required before you can purchase an iPhone and establish a wireless account with AT&T. You can pay this deposit and, subject to availability, purchase an iPhone at an Apple Retail Store. We apologize for the inconvenience." Does this mean I will have no chance of ordering an iPhone 5s through Apple.com on Friday? I'm not sure why these error messages are appearing. Any help is appreciated.
