  • The Latest iPhone 4 Preorder Info From AT&T



    By now, anyone resolved to purchase a new iPhone is well aware of the June 15th pre-order date and the June 24th market arrival of the 4th generation iPhone. But this weekend, we're learning more about AT&T's efforts to help customers "get iPhone 4 as quickly and efficiently as possible."

    According to AT&T, anyone planning to pre-order their Apple smartphone can do so at any AT&T retail store nationwide or online beginning June 15th. This year, however, AT&T is trying something new - offering customers the option to ship pre-orders directly to their home or business for delivery as soon as launch day. Best of all, to help you keep tabs on the arrival of your new toy, AT&T will not only send out the obligatory email to confirm that the order has been placed, but also a second email to confirm that the iPhone 4 has actually shipped.

    Credit cards won't be charged until the order is shipped. And don't forget that debit cards can't be used to pre-order.

    As anyone who has purchased an iPhone from AT&T in the past knows, typically a customer sales rep will assist in activating the device. This time around, customers who order their device through AT&T and have it shipped directly to their home are advised to "follow the instructions included with the shipment." That's AT&T's way of kindly telling you to do it yourself. Of course, if you buy your iPhone 4 in an actual AT&T store, you'll still get assistance activating it before you go home. AT&T says that customers performing an exchange for iPhone 4 "must activate in an AT&T store."

    Although there has been some confusion on the Internet regarding how many devices you're allowed to pre-order, AT&T is setting the record straight. AT&T stores will "sell one iPhone 4 per person for new customers, and one device per household for new orders placed online." Similarly, existing customers "may purchase one per eligible telephone number online" or through an AT&T store.

      YOU'RE the wanker here. haha.
      fyi, people don't buy a 2 or 3 hundred dollar phone to 'be cool' as you delude yourself to.
      I'm getting it because I want it, I liked the 3G, now I want the 4.
      REALLY it's as simple as that.
      I haven't cared about what others think about me since grade school.
      When you graduate from grade school, perhaps you'll understand.

      It's not so much you graduated from a grade school. I a great job at good bank. I didn't finish college. I don't care how others view me. It's not about them. It's about me. Besides I'm giving my wife my 32GB 3GS. I'M getting the 4g and my 4 year old is getting her 8GB 3G. it's amazing how kids are able to navigate these toys.

      I just got off the phone with my local Apple store and was told that I can preorder at the store or online (for in-store pick up) and not have to put any money down until I pick it up on the 24th. Also, they will be accepting debit cards.

      My office manager has (very graciously) let me use her upgrade to purchase an iPhone 4. What I'm wondering is, if she pre-orders online through AT&T, will she have to purchase the data plan then or after the phone comes in?

      I'll take the phone once it arrives (using on t-mobile) but will her plan change if she doesn't activate it with AT&T?

      I'm trying to avoid her plan changing by any means possible...

      Hey,

      In addition to getting an i4 on my own line, I'm helping out my friend as well. One of the lines on my family plan, my dad's, is eligible, so I will be preordering an iPhone4.0 for $199 on his line. This will in effect push his contract back for another 2 years.

      I would basically preorder the phone with my friend's credit card and put his address for the shipping information. As soon as he receives it, I would call at&t with some bogus reason to cancel the data plan on my dad's account. Though I speculate the data plan won't even be put on the account until you activate/call at&t. So we may not even have to do that.

      As for unlocking the i4 for use on Tmobile, good luck with that, hopefully there are some methods out to unlock it days/week after release.

      Hope that helps.

      I am so confused. I want to preorder and want the phone on the 24th. I am an existing ATT customer. Do I pre-order from ATT, Apple, Bestbuy, Radioshack, the loveshack?

      Ok i bought my 3GS from an ATT Store on May 26th for $99 (They took $100 off my bill to match the Wal-Mart offer back then). So I can reserve the Iphone 4 tomorrow on Apple's site and do a exchange at an Apple Store or an ATT Store? Or both options? I want to do the reserve b/c I don't have the $199 up front and don't want to wait 3 months for a rebate. I just want to take my 3GS in and exchange it on the 24th, get the new phone and be all set. Are these options available to me?

      My wife bought her Tilt 2 with no committment so I was able to do an Iphone 2 year upgrade using her phone number. I assume when I reserve tomorrow I should include her phone number for the reservation.

      Thanks for reading and your assistance.
