    When does Apple usually take the money from your credit card if you preordered on the 12th and picked up on the 19th?

    It's been 4 days already and they didn't take my money yet.

    They'll charge your card when the iphone that u ordered is ready for shipment.

    I had it for pick up. I've had it since the 19th. This is strange to me because last year, they took the funds as soon as I picked it up. I even got the receipt emailed to me and everything. Maybe I should call them and let them know? Just find it weird.

    I don't know about that. haha
    But I picked up my case today, and the Apple Employee asked me if I was picking up my phone too. I said no, because I already picked it up. He just said that it wasn't marked as picked up, and that I could've gotten away with a free phone. I just stood there awkwardly, and he said he updated it. He said I should be charged instantly after that. I still didn't get any charges. I called my bank, and they said there were no charges at all. What's even more strange is that on the 19th, when I picked up my phone, I actually got the receipt for my purchase. Another thing I thought was weird is that... My phone didn't have a sticker with my name on it. The guy that went to the back also took about half an hour just to get my phone. O.O... This whole pre-order for me is strange compared to my 5 and 5s orders.

    I told myself that I'd leave it alone for about a month or two months. Is that safe enough to assume that if nothing is taken out by then, then it's a free phone? lol

    AT&T still hasn't charged me for my order. everyone's system is such a mess. hope apple doesn't lose money from this. shady people can call their bank and get a new card issued and they won't be able to charge at all.

    I'd be nice to have a free phone but I think I wouldn't be able to live my life knowing I technically stole something. Then again, is it really stealing of they screwed up on their side? Lol
