My iPhone preorder money was returned to my account?
Edited by FUmbach on Sep 19, 2012 at 9:53:50 AM

Today I went ahead and checked my banking account online and previously my iPhone order and ALSO my otterbox order had my money "pending" on my account and it was taken from my available balance. Today both transactions disappeared from pending and I have all of my money back now 0.o. Whats this about? I checked both orders and both are still processing, no cancellation. Can someone please explain this to me if you know? BTW I ordered both of them on Sept. 14. Early in the AM.

What you probably saw was a pre-authorization (a money hold) on your CC account.  Don't worry,  It will show back up as a final charge.  It's a common question.

Same here, but both my Iphone preauth amount AND My most recent phone bill ( both went through on the 14th) have no record on my account at all, not pending or charged! ATT Says they show my phone bill has been paid (On the 14th) and that everything with my Iphone order was good to go ... Called my bank, they were just as clueluess   :/ but def NOT spending the $$ , Im assuming everything wil get pulled back out soon
