or do I need a credit/debit card?
They were only accepting credit cards... no cash
Tracking purposes and limiting sales
will they do a chargeback
A debit card will work as well, just not cash.
On iPhone launch day, I went with someone who had cash. My friend had to buy a gift card first and then use that to buy the phone.
This is how our Apple store did it on launch day. Buy gift card with the cash and use the gift card to buy the phone.
If you're buying the handset from Apple, cash is perfectly fine. Think back to the iPad fiasco.
I've bought two Macs in cash and intend to buy my iPhone the same way. I just prefer it that way. (NB: I live in the UK.)
except there's no limit on buying macs. apple wants everyone to have an iP4, not buy one and resell it on eBay for quick cash.
They will accept cash but only if you buy a gift card first in the amount that the iPhone will cost. You then use that to buy the iPhone.
I don't know if buying at an Apple or AT&T corp. store makes a difference, but AT&T did not let me use a debit card, credit only. And they said that Apple was cancelling orders placed with a debit card on June 15 (or was the 16th the 1st day for pre-orders?).
Just bought two iPhone 4's with cash. Didn't have to put it on a gift card either.
If they let you buy a gift voucher in cash and then make you buy an iPhone, in theory you could buy many more than the 2 phone limit? Obviously not at the same time, but you could just keep going back and doing this. Does this apply in the UK?
Hmmm interesting I can understand Apple not accepting cash, but buying gift cards with cash then using them to buy the phone is a very smart idea.
That's inconsistent with what we've been told before. Cash (without putting it through the gift card route) is perfectly valid. IIRC, for items like the iPhone and iPad, Apple will ask for an AppleID to track the purchases.
That is weird. I bought mine at an Apple store and used my debit card without a problem.
Someone who wishes to buy an iPad with cash would be required to set up an Apple account first, but does this not apply to the iPhone?
I just heard a manager at Apple Store tell the guy that helped me that they no longer have to do the gift card thing for cash.
Legitimate question here: are you crazy?
Your first post: "Will AT&T cancel my service?" and "what will happen to my iPhone".
Another post: You bought an iPhone 4 but you think AT&T sent you an iPhone 3G because the phone says "3G"
Obviously you already know the answer to this question. Either that or:
1) You're trying to boost your post count.
2) You suffer amnesia. Serious amnesia.
3) You enjoy being ignorant and/or have nothing else better to do.
