    I was bored, so I checked my eligibility to upgrade to the next iPhone when it comes out next year. I figured I wouldn't be eligible for an upgrade until 2011 (2 years away), but when I checked it out, it said that I was eligible for and upgrade one year (6/24/2010) from my iPhone 3GS activation date.

    I wonder if its a bug or if its the new standard for iPhones...

    That's why. Anything over $99/mo gets early upgrades.

    Yea but 12 months? I figured it was 18-24 months. I have been with AT&T for 11 years at this point though.

    I believe it's $99 per line, otherwise anyone on a family plan would be eligible, which is not the case.

    The main line on our family plan gets to upgrade every 12 months and the others usually every 18 months.

    Yup, that's the shortest possible length. Its because you pay so much on that particular line and because you probably have a good payment history, blah blah blah.
