    I've got my iPhone 4 for sale and hope to have a 4S this week!

    I wonder if everyone who was eligible on the 25 is now eligible. The 25 was for those who bought a 4 on launch.

    True but i HAVE to get rid of my 3gs.... it is SOOOO SLOOWWW. I was pissed i was going to have to go out on black friday to get my 4s!!!

    What i'm hoping is that most people don't see forums like this and won't be checking their upgrade eligibility daily.

    Thankfully i do!!! god i'm so ready to get rid of this POS!!! lol :D

    Usually if your eligibility date is in the current month your eligible at the beginning of the month.

    I saw a guy on another thread awhile back that was able to look up if certian AT&T stores had them. Does anyone know how he did that? i'm going to call my local AT&T store today to see whats up. I'm really hoping they have a 16GB black 4s in stock =(

    I got a little nervous because i checked Best Buy about a week ago and started seeing them available in stores again, but i checked today and seeing all local best buys are unavailable.

    I'll be going to an AT&T store, but i'm not sure if best buy's availability would be reflective of what AT&T's might be. If that makes sense lol

    Crazy - I called last night and they gave me the run around about how they couldn't change it in the system - he even told me I "didn't have too long to wait".

    Nice surprise today - thanks for posting OP!

    My eligibility was 11.18 -- today I am good to go.


    Unfortunately, finding someplace that actually has the iPhone 4s in stock is going to be a problem.

    Yep. My eligibility date was 11/18 last night, and switched this morning.

    I half-suspected this would happen; when I talked to one of the managers at my local AT&T store a couple of weeks ago, she mentioned that she "wasn't sure about online orders" but she could go ahead and do the upgrade in-store at the subsidy price on November 1st. As some others reported elsewhere, it just had to be within the same calendar month as your reported upgrade date. Thankfully it just switched in the system so I don't have to order through the AT&T store. They're still quoting "4 weeks" as of today if I ordered through them.

    Now I just have to decide if I want to go ahead and order online through Apple or take my chances at reserving at the local Apple Store. Probably going to order online since I'm assuming a black 16 GB AT&T will be hard to come by.

    Mine from 11/18 got moved to now as well! Now to see if any 16GB Black is in stock anywhere...

    EDIT: Just ordered from Apple.com, no rush. Out of stock everywhere. 2-3 weeks I'll have mine.

    Me too!

    Mine was originally 11/22/11 and now it shows today! Of course I have already decided to skip the iPhone 4s since my iPhone 4 seems to be doing just fine...but...that white 64gb is calling...decisions, decisions.

    Ditto

    My date got moved up at 12:01 AM this morning, and I'd ordered a 4S (white, 64GB) from the Apple site minutes later. My estimated delivery is Nov.14 - Nov.21. Hope it arrives sooner...

    Is there an activation fee associated w/ online orders? AT&T, ordered from Apple.com

    Activation Fee

    My invoice from Apple does not include an activation fee. However, it's possible, even likely, that AT&T will add it to my monthly bill.
