This info applies to current iPhone 3G owners who bought their iPhone 3G closer to it's release date. When reading these forums, with everyone talking about paying the ETF to get a better deal on the new iPhone, did you guys forget or not know that AT&T switched their ETFs policy to prorated on May 25 of 2008? If you did, heres a reminder. If you signed a one or two year contract beginning or after May 25, 2008 (which you did since the iPhone 3g was released in July 2008 I believe), for each month that you paided your bill on time, the ETFs fee which starts at $175, gets lowered by $5. So what are we at? like the 11th month... That's 5x11. So for our ETFs, we would have to pay $175-$55=$120. Still kind of sucks since you will lose your current number, but for people who don't care about that. You saved 55 bucks! http://wirelesscontractsinfo.blogspot.com/2008/05/at-prorated-etfs-are-now-in-effect.html - Read there for the press release from an old blog post. You can google it too, the info is all over the place.
