    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?

    Some companies are rebelling against the credit card companies because of high rates for debit transactions, therefore no longer taking debit transactions. That may or may not be the case here.

    don't use AT&T. they are scam artists. I'm only with them because of the HUGE business discounts (and the iphone). They will hose you for everything you have if you aren't careful. Preorder thru apple

    lol If anyone doesn't believe me call (606)436-5001 and ask them about it, every dumb *** in that building will tell you a debit card cannot be used online to preorder.

    It's ridiculous.

    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.

    Bank problem or not, this is EXACTLY why I deal with AT&T reps as little as possible.

    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.
