I'm guessing they are swamped.  The person I talked to really had trouble.  She thought I was a new customer (I'm not). Wasn't sure how many phones I had purchased, wasn't sure what phone number number I was upgrading...

I'm guessing they are pulling staff from other locations that aren't trained in fraud section.

just wanted to update that I got through last night after waiting on 13 minutes around 7:45pm PST.

Funny thing, though.   She told me the order had already been pushed through the system, so I didn't really need to call!     This is the exact same situation I had last week when I ordered a 5c for my daughter.  Called and they had already pushed the order through the system.

AND - get this - I got a whole new delivery date, and a weird one!  Sept 23rd!
