Anyone else have this happen? I was less than 2 weeks from my upgrade on my phone line, I text *639# and now come to find out they pushed it back to July. I have a previous text that showed the feb date when I checked less than 2 weeks ago. Any ideas?

That's what I plan to do, just curious if anyone ran across this before and what was the outcome.

Wanting an iPhone 4s? I'd save your upgrade for the next gen iPhone. :D

I had the same thing happen to me. I eventually got my upgrade back, but it took 4 hours on the phone. And I got hung up on 2 times. It reminded me why I hate AT&T.

You had the choice to renew with them instead of being on the phone with them for 4 hours to get your upgrade date restored.
I have 4 other lines. LOL, talk about being in a long-term relationship.
I've been with AT&T since 2004.

I spoke with AT&T today and they were unsure of why I was bumped back, but did in fact acknowledge in their "system" that I was due to for the upgrade in feb of 2012. The best they can do is a manger upgrade override.. Essentially, they were willing to offer the upgrade today, instead of waiting for my "new" July date. They noted that when I call back ready to upgrade that the same procedure should take place.
Basically, whenever I'm ready to make my upgrade, I should either call them or I should visit my AT&T store locally and do the upgrade. With that being said, does anyone feel I should make the upgrade to the iPhone 4s this week? Or should I hold out until the new iPhone is released? Opinions are appreciated, I'm currently on the iPhone 4 32gb, for what is worth.
