    I have an Iphone 4 that is cracked - we need a new phone but I don't get a discounted price until December. I think the early upgrade prices kick in around 18 months since contract. I would like to upgrade now so I can use my phone - I dont want to invest more to get it fixed (long story) would rather just upgrade the broken phone.

    Anyone able to talk AT&T into providing an earlier discount date than what is stated when you log onto your account to get eligibility date for discount?

    best way to do it is go to the AT&T store talk to the salesperson then ask for the manager. Show them you screen be nice. I have heard people having much more luck in person then over the phone. Good luck!

    No luck for me earlier this week at an AT&T store, and I'm eligible on November 6th. But maybe after things settle down a bit they'll be more flexible.

    I know 2 people that did that today at ATT stores, both were about 1.5 months early on upgrade

    I got turned down at a few spots trying that being as nice as possible. I think AT&T has limited wiggleroom with Apple devices. I am in the 11/22 camp.

    As much as I would have liked a new device on launch day for another month or so it is definitely worth the $250 savings.

    I'm in the same boat as you OP. My upgrade date is 11-30-11. By then, I don't know if I'll want to upgrade at all.
