Same thing, it kinda confused me. It'll either charge it again upon delivery or we're getting ours for free, haha

But seriously, it'll go through again when it's delivered

ahhhh guys! I wouldve scored the HDMI dock, keyboard and mouse if that was so! lol but all jokes aside. Im glad you guys confirmed, the worst went through my head. AT&T calls Fedex and tells them to stop the shipment because something is wrong with them not getting there money lol

The original payment is a preauthorization or payment hold which only temporarily holds the funds for a maximum of 7-10 days before being released. The real charge will probably come through sometime in the next 1-2 days.

I have a question. When I look at my account, it says that it would cost me $499, but when I put the Atrix in my cart and go all the way up to the credit card info screen, it says that my total is only $218. Is the $218 only a pre order price? Will they charge me the full $500? I want to order it but only if I get it for $218, not $500. What do you guys think?

Reasons for weird prices:

$199 + $19 tax(on $200) = $218
...............or...............
$199 + $42 tax(on full $499) = $241

I get the math, but it doesn't make sense why it initially says it'll cost me $499 but when I add it to my cart and go through the checkout process it says $199. I also have the option of signing a new contract, even though I signed one in September when I bought the iPhone 4. I think I should just sign the contract, order the phone, pay the $218 and see what happens.

For whatever reason whether an error or intentional they are giving early upgrade pricing to certain people. It's actually $299.99 but the are giving a 100 instant discount. This will renew your contract.
