    Not on there yet. At least I would feel better if it said pending. Ordered thru apple too last Friday. Weird.

    Debit card or credit card? I ordered with a debit card and it did the same thing. No final charge yet, but I do have a UPS tracking number I found by Tracking by Reference.

    Visa credit card. I don't have a tracking number either. But got the email from apple after I ordered saying thanku and the device I ordered.

    Probable $ hold on funds but not finally charged to card until shipped or picked up in most cases.

    My guess is the charge will hit closer to the ship date.

    Totally hope so. Lol. I know it's been ordered. Usually after you charge stuff it goes right onto the account. Just will say pending. That's why I had the freak out..

    Does it say sale now? Or just nothing?

    Generally your card is charged when the phone ships. Sometimes you may see a $1.00 charge on your card before then, this is just a test to ensure your account is real.

    Eclipse01 I've had that happen to me before, and it meant that the phone was moving from one thing to another. Such as from "Pending" to "Preparing to ship" or from "Preparing to Ship" to "Shipping". It sometime takes a while for the notification to appear, and if you check in the window you may see nothing.

    The auth went away for me, and no final charge yet. But Fedex tracking number says my phone is in the city that I live in and scheduled to be delivered by 8PM on Friday.

    Your card should have been charged at the moment of purchase regardless of Debit or credit. Credit card is almost instant. But hey if still not charged, Free phone!:D:eek::cool:

    as explained in another thread, AT&T didnt successfully cancel my original order, so now I have 1 from AT&T and one from Apple both shipped today, both deliver tomorrow, but funny thing is both pending charges are gone from my credit card now. I wonder which one of them will hit me for the full price . lol

    Card no doubt preauthorized for the full amount from the outset. That authorization code will thus be honoured by your financial institution despite whatever happened after the transaction.

    Still no charge showing up on my Huntington account. Apple has it listed as shipped and tracking shows it en route.
