Today, AT&T announced a new feature for customers who order accessories and devices through the carrier’s website – the ability to schedule a pickup at many AT&T retail locations. It is a feature Verizon’s had for the better part of a year, but better late than never, right?
Arranging an in-store pickup is as simple as you would assume: select the device or accessory you wish to purchase, search for stores in your area, and see if any have it in stock. If one does, you can order and receive a text message when the desired product is ready to be picked up.
While a bit less convenient than same-day delivery, AT&T’s addition of an in-store pickup option is a welcome improvement.
