    Default 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.

    I'm planning on exchanging my new 3GS for the iPhone 4. Wonder if I can still preorder online and then do the exchange in store? Since "AT&T says that customers performing an exchange for iPhone 4 "must activate in an AT&T store." I wonder if I'd have to do everything in store?

    no no, those are debit/credit cards... those are fine.

    Most debit cards can do debit, you just have to make sure that you ask them to charge it ad credit

    So you are going to upgrade, but then still complain? BTW, verizon doesn't allow any early upgrades for Android phones. Guess you will whine like a little girl there too
    Really?

    You can use debit as long as it is processed as credit, which means if you're gonna use your debit than you need to be in an AT&T store to order. See ya then!

    On the ATT site, it says that you can dial *NEW# from your Iphone to see if you are eligible for the upgrade to Iphone 4...

    I agree with your first point but the second one not necessarily. In the past I've bought pre-ordered the iPhone with my Chase Visa debit card. One must of course have sufficient funds in the account; and even not sufficient funds I think the transaction will go through and you end up paying whatever bank service charges your bank has.

    I think when they say no debit card your card has to have visa/mastercard logo on it. I wanna know what time we can order online. Does anyone know?
