    I noticed when I was in line the day the new iPhone 3G came out, reps walked around to see if people were available for a full upgrade to buy it and i noticed some people had the original iPhone 2G that they had purchased a year before. I was wondering since on AT&T's website it says that my iPhone 3G can be upgraded in March of 2010, how were some people able to upgrade their 2G phones exactly 1 year after they got their 2G and I have to wait a year and 8 months. I was just wondering if anyone else has thought about this and thanks in advance for your response.

    The original iPhones were not subsidized by ATT

    and depending on your rate plan, u can upgrade after just 12 months rather than the typical 21. for example, i have a family plan and i am the primary and everyone else is an addaline, so since my rate plan is so high and i got the iphone on 7/11/08, i am eligible for an upgrade 7/12/09. BUT sucks for everyone else on my account because they arent eligible for their next iphone (at the lowest price) until next year.

    My guess would be ~$200 out of pocket, either AT&T take it as a trade-in or sell it on craigslist plus $200 cash.
