So verizon didn't charge the account..just a hold. Not sure the difference but will the hold stay on til the phone ships or will it fall off then they charge again?


Thanks

My friend said she hasn't even been charged yet and won't until the phone ships. She is with Verizon. As far as a hold, that is normal for many companies.

The initial hold is just to make sure you have the funds available before they waste their time processing your order. It will probably fall off then they will charge once it ships.

My credit card was charged the full amount the night I ordered but I looked today and there is no transaction or hold from Apple!

This is also normal. A charge of the whole amount can count as a hold.

Ok, thanks. I was worried! I've been through this so many times before but I still worry that something will go wrong!

Verizon put a hold on Friday when I pre-ordered. Then after the weekend, the hold fell off. Today they charged the amount.
