I visited the ATT store today with a family member looking to get the new iphone. Her eligibility said that she couldn't get it at $199 until some time in December. One of the staff there said they just got word that even those who aren't eligible for the $199 price up until December will in fact be allowed to get it at the $199 price. We said 'thank you' and left, and I came here for the real answer. So, is this true? We asked one last question: When we called *639# the text said that she wasn't available for the $199 price until december, but she could get it on launch day for less than full price. When we asked what she would have to pay on launch day they said they couldn't tell us because they didn't know. So whats the real deal? How much will it cost? Our last ditch plan would be for her to get off our family plan, start a new plan with her husband (who has a PAYGO plan with ATT) and use his 'new customer' credit to get the phone at $199, and then somehow switch their numbers back to normal. Anyone see any problems with this as a backup plan? And would her husband need to be there? Thanks for the answers.
