    So I checked my upgrade eligibility on apple.com and it said I am eligible for the $449 pricing on 9/24. I want to pre-order Friday, so I called AT&T and spent 20 min on the phone with the rep explaining that all I needed was to have my eligibility moved up a week and a half so I could pre-order on Friday... simple enough.

    She finally said she spoke to her supervisor and because it's "in the month of Sept. I will get the $449 pricing Friday if I try and pre-order".

    That... doesn't sound right at all. And she insisted that it was.

    It maybe right. I check my eligibility on the apple store website. I'm as well mid contract, my pricing was $549 for the 6+. BUT to get that price I have to agree to a new 2 year contract. I think that May be your case to. If your willing to sign a new contract then that sound about right to me. I'm no att expert.

    I always do the 2 year contract thing and the early upgrade eligibility at the $449 price, but it clearly says online I am not eligible for that price till 9/24. So, it doesn’t make sense that I'd stay up early Friday to pre-order the phone and magically be eligible for the $449 pricing a week and a half early if the website says 9/24.
