I ordered an iPhone 6 through att this morning about 5:30 am central time.
Does anyone know when they actually charge the credit card. I got the 2 year for 199. My order status says pending. Is that normal?

Yes, that's normal. They will charge your card when it ships.

I don't want to create another thread, but I heard with AT&T peoples shipping has stayed in "preparing for shipment" for some time, sometimes up to 2-3 weeks. I see the same phone on Apple.com. I wonder if I should take the risk and cancel my AT&T order, and order same phone that apple says it'll deliver on the 19th.

To answer your question TC: Mine charged pretty quick, it says preparing for shipment as of yesterday 1pm.

You could do that if Apple is still showing delivery on the 19th for the one you want. I'm just not sure how long it will take them to reset your eligibility. It might go though immediately.

I wonder since I paid the remaining 5 months off my 12 month next plan, if they would show it as eligible to trade in. I think that may be an at&t thing (since they would be sending the box to trade it the old phone in) now that I think of it. Hmm.

Why did you pay it off it you want to trade it in?

It wasn't a full pay off, they give you an option to upgrade cheaper with next. You trade it in, and only pay the price that you would pay in payments leading up to month 12.

Gotcha. So for example, you could give them the phone in early August and use a backup phone for two months. You pay them about $75 (the cost of the payment for Aug. and Sept.) and then they reset you're eligibility so you can buy an iPhone 6. Is that correct?

The other option would be to pay about $306 to pay it off and sell it, but you would get less than $400 on craigslist so it's not really worth the trouble.

Verizon charged me the full amount yesterday. So hopefully that means it's "shipped", as they told me I wouldn't be charged until it ships.

A lot of companies put an initial hold to verify funds which takes the money out, then the money will go back in & deducted again later.

I have a $1 holding for my AT&T order but I'm doing the "next" so not sure why they would do that?

Anybody that ordered via a 2 year contract through AT&T had their order processed yet and the 199+ tax deducted yet?
