I ended up using Safari, though I couldn't change the shipping address. Night everyone.

May be able to change the shipping address on the Order page via the Apple Store. You have to wait until it is processed though. There is an "edit" button and it says to try again after that step is completed.

Hey,

Just out of curiosity, what does "*In CA and RI sales tax is collected on the unbundled price of the iPhone." mean?

How is that different from the other states?

I'm in FL, but I'm just curious?!

If you're having issues with Safari, a tip that worked was making your browsing private in the Safari menu. That way no cached pages should load.

Gots mine. used chrome. went smooth as hell. either Apple is bolstering their servers, or there's much less demand than the iPhone 4 order fiasco. Probably a combination of both, i guess.

My buddy ordered on Apple.com and just called me. He did not get the option to ship it. He got to the end of the process and received this message:

"carriers are down, phone will be reserved"

That means you will be taxed for the full retail price of the device even if you're paying for subsidized pricing.
