This was my first time enrolling into this program. I am a little turned off by the comments that when people using this option who were existing program users, did not get an option for these. I actually find this a bit hard to believe since if not mistaken, you actually selected the size, color, then size.. then you would go to the plan options. i am a little worried this may happen next time. The other thing about this 12 month upgrade plan that stinks is the fact that if you didnt get it in the same billing month, next year there is a possibility that unless you pay that extra month in advance to make 50% of cost, then you really are upgrading at 13 months and not 12. To pay $41 extra for that month to get back to pre-order eligible really starts adding up especially when you have multiple phones in a family. Further more, if you decide not to, and just upgrade say in October next year when you hit 12 months, you are now in position that you will never get it on release but always be a month behind at the very least. last but not least, I seriously hope that next year the checking isn't as much with the 3rd party. I had all my info on my account and on the app, i still had to reenter all my address and credit card info. wasn't sure why and i even checked earlier in the day to make sure all was okay. I think after the 2 year if i go that route, i will switch over to Next. At least with AT&T Next , you are dealing with Apple and AT&T and not also the bank. that was a total of three parties which may have slowed down the process even further.
