AT&T now allows you to order phones online and pick them up in-store


AT&T will now let you order items online and pick them up at a local AT&T Store on the same day. So if you’re out of town and forgot a phone charger, or your tablet broke, or you’ve decided to buy a new device, you can purchase it at home without the need to wait for shipping. When shopping online with AT&T, choose Store Pickup when checking out. You’ll be given a list of nearby AT&T locations to select from. Within an hour, you’ll receive a text message alert that your item is ready for pickup. AT&T says that you should be in and out of the store in no time.

Thankfully, the folks over at AT&T do not leave you high and dry, since they are merging online convenience with a hands-on, store experience.
