    Does anyone know when exactly are credit cards charged? Is it when the order status changes to Preparing for shipment? At what point before the actual release date does that usually happen?

    Probably the morning of the day before.

    I saw the title of this topic and I got a little excited for a second :(

    My card has been charged for both phones and I'm only In Progress :/ Maybe the charge will drop off.

    I think Apple Pay buyers get charged right away whereas credit card buyers get charged a day or two before delivery.

    I ordered through my AT&T rep to keep my unlimited data and my credit card was charged right away and my order status is "preparing to ship" also. Is this a good thing? It's my first preorder.

    Ahh. So maybe not.. I didn't use AP and haven't been charged. Got my confirmation email and order is in "processing" status. The charges start when your phone is scanned by UPS or FedEx and is about to deliver. That'd be around Wednesday and Thursday the 23rd and 24th. Happens every year.

    I ordered through verizon with the edge option. And charge yet. I don't think we will see anything for at least a week.

    Good question; wondering the same. I paid via Apple Pay using the Apple Store app. I do not have any pending charges on my CC tied to AP. I do show an Apple transaction under my Passbook app. I chatted with Apple CS and they said the charge won't go thru until 2-3 days before shipping.

    Ordered on the Apple site with a credit card, and no charge is showing on my bill.
