    Sorry if this has been asked, but is the general consensus that people who bought 3Gs the day they came out will be able to upgrade to subsidized price 4G? I recall they did something like this for 3G-3Gs

    I upgraded on launch day for every single iPhone but for some reason I am listed as eligible for an upgrade on 01/01/2011!

    I am extremely pissed about it, called AT&T and they couldn't give me a reason why this was the case. Going to try calling back tomorrow to see if I get someone with more brains on the phone.

    Not to mention, I am pretty pissed at AT&T giving me the shaft on my 3G iPad plan.

    The easiest way to check, which will provide the clearest info, is to sign into your wireless account on att.com

    Purchased 3G on launch day.
    Purchased 3GS on launch day but wasn't eligible for upgrade. Apple then issued refunds to people who spent a certain amount per month on their bill. I received a refund.

    According to AT&T's site, and *639#, I am eligible for an upgrade with the $18 fee waived.

    The gf, who is on a family plan with me, purchased a 3G in April of last year and isn't eligible for full subsidized pricing until December. She is eligible, however, for a partial discount.

    Considering that even with a higher price. If you sell your 3GS as I likely will, you'll still come out now having to shell out money for the new iPhone.

    For me I'll have to see the new specs of the coming iPhone first and really evaluate it.

    Since I got the iPad my iPhone has been getting less usage. That's another topic though.

    If you get a great price for your 3GS I'd say go for it.

    ATT does special upgrades for iphone. Although you won't be eligible for an upgrade you get some credit. The way it works is you will have to pay $200 more than if you were eligible for an upgrade.. its not much but its something.
