I also received this note from Apple on the order for my Wife’s iPhone:
We were unable to complete the authorization process for your iPhone order. As
a result, we had to cancel your iPhone order. To complete the purchase of your
iPhone, please visit an Apple Retail Store or an AT&T company-owned retail
This was not good news – it explains why Apple cancelled her iPhone order. I ordered this on my Alaska Airlines Bank of America card, which as of right now has an available credit limit of $12,500 – which is still apparently not enough for them to allow me to buy an iPhone 4. Now this is clearly a screw up on Bank of America, but instead of it being no big deal I get to wake up at 5a and go stand in a pre-order line – assuming I get my iPhone on the 23rd.
(For those curious I paid for my iPhone with my business card – a perk for sure as it always is approved.)
