    IIRC, the amount is 'authorized' when you purchased, but not charged until it actually ships.

    At least that's what the AT&T Rep told me. She was very clear about it because I'm in that window of people eligible to turn in a recently bought 3GS. They ran my AMEX, but said it wouldn't charge until it shipped out (~23), then would be credited back the full amount when I turned my 3GS into the store.

    So if I ordered with my credit card it would lower my my available funds but not post the charge?

    Cool. I was worried I didnt have enough credit left (after iPad)! The card has a relatively small limit. After I did the math I figured that is what happened it all added up. I didn't even think to check my balance beforee I ordered.

    I can rest assured :)

    Sasha the AT&T goddess told me that At&t dont charge until shipped, they just check to see if the funds are there at pre order, so i dunno

    Same with me! I just hope that both aren't pre-authorization charges, and they will charge again! :confused:
