Questions about joining

What happens to my new loan if I choose to pick up my new iPhone at an Apple Store but then fail to pick it up?

If you do not pick up your iPhone within 14 days after the scheduled pickup date, it will be returned to store inventory. Your new loan will be canceled, and any charges applied to your credit card will be refunded. The monthly payments associated with your current iPhone will continue. Any credit inquiry used to determine loan eligibility during preapproval will not be removed.
