    Yes, on their website at http://forums.imore.com/e?link=http%...token=WZMBL-_U if you hover your mouse over the big "Coming Soon" iphone 7 image, it says preorder start at 12:01 AM PST tonight.

    Yes! Does AT&T ever have promos for preorders or on iPhone release day?

    If I need to pay $150 to upgrade early with Next, do I have to preorder with AT&T, or can I preorder through Apple? I prefer going through Apple, tbh. I just don't want to waste precious minutes!

    I ordered my 6 Plus in 2014 through att because the Apple Store app wasn't working for me. Push come to shove I'll do the same if it happens again

    SO with the preorder what is needed? Full payment up front or if you do the "Next" payment plan how is that handled?

    You can pay it before hand without picking a phone to upgrade too?

    I was wondering that too. If I can do that, I'll totally do that just to be ready.

    Correct. It just gets your account into ready to upgrade status. Just turn in your good condition phone after you get your new phone, either by mail or in an AT&T Corp store from what I was told.

    Glad to help!

    I literally just did this through the myatt app and got confirmation of payment. Then went to Best Buy app and it shows I'm ready to upgrade!!! I gues I should check the apple website to see if It cleared too lol.

    Can you use the Apple Store app, select AT&T Next and do pickup at the apple store?

    Feel free to share your waiting experience for your AT&T preorders here. Mine are as follows:

    iPhone 7 Plus 128GB Jet Black - Preordered at 3:03 am EST | 10/14-10/21
    iPhone 7 Plus 128GB Gold - Preordered at 3:07 am EST | 9/23-9/30

    My PayPal card has the tax authorizations on the status for both are Preparing For Shipment. I'm not sure what to make of all this, since I would assume they should be showing as Backordered.

    Same thing for me. Ordered a matte black iPhone 7+. Delivery date is September 23 to September 30. The order status is also preparing to ship.

    Do you think we'll receive them on launch day, or is this a system error?

    I'm not sure. Most of the people who said they ordered through Att says there orders also say preparing to ship. We may not know for sure until we get closer to the launch date. But I'm trying to be optimistic lol.

    I figured if they're backordered, the order status will correctly show as Backordered, instead of Preparing For Shipment.

    Yeah see that's what I'm thinking too. With the order status saying prepare to shop it makes it seem like they have it in stock. But if that was the case why wouldn't it ship on time to get it on the 16th?

    The situation doesn't make sense, and the representatives have no explanation either.
