iPhone 8 plus pre-order. No confirmation email, no order number, charged twice.

Today, I went online at ATT. COM to pre-order iPhone 8 plus. I chose the next every year option, added an insurance plan, and began to check out. When I got to the last step, which is "submit order", I got an error message saying something to the effect of "there is a problem with this card" (there isn't, the card is valid, and there's plenty of money in the bank to cover the charge. In fact,  I just paid my monthly AT&T bill with the same card.)

Since the order appeared to not go through, I tried one more time, and got the same result. I chatted online with a representative, and he said there was a technical issue with processing pre-orders, and to try again later. A few hours later, I logged into my bank account and noticed that there were two charges in the amount of $66.50 each, which is the exact total of the "due today" amount from the order that I had attempted to place (and thought didn't go through) earlier. I never received any confirmation email, order number, and no order shows in my account when I attempt to check the order status. I called AT&T, and was on the phone for over an hour being transferred and given the run around by representatives claiming that there is no record of an order, and they didn't charge me anything, but my bank activity clearly shows two charges for $66.50 from "AT&T Bethlehem PA". Basically, I was charged twice, no record of an order, and AT&T was no help, telling me to call my bank. How did they manage to charge me twice but mysteriously have no record of it? I talked to several reps, and two were very rude, one even saying condescendingly "Well, what do you want me to do?!" after I had explained the situation. I'm at my wits end, and would just like some help and insight...and my money back. They can keep their phone.

Iphone 8 Plus backordered?

I just signed in to check the status of my pre-ordered Iphone 8 plus and it says that it's backed ordered. Is it truly backordered or does it only that because we haven't hit the actual release date yet? I was expecting it to say something like "preparing to ship".

My Iphone 8 plus is showing a ship date in October. I was wondering if they are backordered myself
