Pre-Order - No Debit Card?!
I went to go inside of an ATT store this morning at 9 to preorder. All sales reps looked at me like I was an ***** when I pulled out a debit card. They said no you can only use a credit card. And I said run it as credit but they stated they cannot do that. I used my debit card last year for the 3GS. WTF?
I mean when you preorder online at Apple or AT&T you use a debit card as credit. WTF is up with the store?

The lady in my store was yelling at everybody telling them they had to pay with credit cards, because the bank will cancel a payment after 3 days, if it doesn't go threw. She said they had major problems last year with a lot of peoples payments getting cancelled days after pre-ordering.

Spoke to an AT&T rep and she explained that their system says you can use debit cards. Just in case my debit card pre order don't work I have an iPhone reserved at an apple store about an hour away. Talked to my bank and a rep advised me that my payment was scheduled to post or be rejected by midnight EST. Guess I will know then.
