    So, how they changed it so that people that purchased an iPhone on launch could upgrade? Yeah, it's not really the story. The story is that you have to have atleast 100$ a month charged to your phone specifically in order to be eligible and have bought a phone on launch. SO my situation, still on family plan since my parents make more than me...thanks mom and dad...because my phone particularly only costs 10$ a month on the family plan...I am not eligible. Way to go AT&T! Bite me.

    No att should just chip in 400 dollars whenever you want to get a new phone without you having to pay anything.

    lol, made me laugh.

    See, the complaining never stops. If its not one thing, its another. YOU DON'T DESERVE THE NEW PHONE SO QUIT COMPLAINING! I suppose now that its summer time, kids like this will continue posting these dumb threads because they aren't in school.

    Allowing early upgrade prices for people who pay more via their contract makes perfect sense.

    Sorry, but you have no argument in this case.

    Well, what the OP states is what I was afraid of.

    A while back, for no particular reason, they changed the primary line on my account from my iPhone, to my mother in law's regular phone.

    So this will probably disqualify me to.

    Guess it is a good thing my son is due an upgrade. :D

    So you're bitching that your iPhone only costs you $10 a month.

    Yeah, your life is really hard.

    You should have had your own account. That way you would have only paid an extra $1080 in the past year instead of the $200 early upgrade. ATT is really screwing you, bub.

    Seriously? How old are you? In the grown-up world your parents don't give you anything you point at. Here you have to pay for things.

    I'm get fed up with these kids thinking everything should just be handed to them.

    Actually no. I bought mine on launch day, pay the $99+ on the line (pre-tax), and am not eligible till December. So there you go.

    If you are under 18, then why do you need a new iPhone?

    While I side with ATT on this one. ATT primary account thing does get screwed up at times. It is on the store level guys that screw it up. It gets moved when you add a new line or bring one over it can cause ti go all crazy. My parents account as had 3 or so different primary numbers. For a long while my numbers was primary and it was the last line to be added. Before that it was my bothers or my sisters. It currently is my dad's number. That only happen because my dad requested that they make his or my mom's number primary because no matter how long they stated with ATT those 2 numbers would always be under my parents control. Kids numbers well we move out on our own and so our numbers go with us.

    Why do you care? Not many people "need" an iPhone, a regular smartphone would probably do. They like it. Kids under 18 might like the iPhone, you don't know this story. He could be paying how much the iPhone costs and then his parents pick up the monthly service. Who knows?

    In the same vein, the OP obviously doesn't understand contractual agreements, but still, calling spoiled on any kid who has something that you deem to be excessive is a little bit played out. But to focus on the OP, yes, he seems to have a misplaced sense of entitlement.
