    Mines now say "Great news! You qualify for an early iPhone upgrade with a new 2-year commitment.
    Full upgrade available: October 04, 2012" [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    About month ago is was ""As a valued AT&T customer, you're eligible for a discounted iPhone upgrade at a reduced discount". Anyone else just got moved up?

    I got my notification August the 4th... so, it has been a while. Moreover, AT&T splashed a screen on me (when I logged to pay my account) that my main line was already eligible for upgrade. This was a week ago (plus a few days).

    It means you are eligible for an early upgrade which is the 2 year price plus $250.

    He isn't eligible for full discount, so I don't know what you talking about.

    Which means $250 plus $199 for the basic phone. In may you can get the basic phone for $199 and no early fee of $250.

    You can have a full upgrade
    Or an early upgrade (full upgrade price + $250)

    Still cheaper than unsubsidized, but more than full upgrade

    It means If you're upgrading to an iphone 5 (Or any iphone) they'll upgrade it for you. If you're getting anything else, You'll have to wait or pay termination fee.

    So they'll let you get a iphone 5 at full discount. But not an android, blackberry, ect.

    They'll definitely move the dates up for those who got 4S's on launch day. They always do.

    So I can have the new iPhone for 199, but any other phone is full price?

    I don't understand. You still don't have a full upgrade. It's still just the reduced discount upgrade. No difference.

    Sorry, but totally incorrect.

    As others have mentioned, it means you can upgrade for a discounted price which is less than the full retail but $250 more than the fully subsidized price.

    ----------

    No, see above.

    This means you could upgrade to an iPhone 4S for $200 plus the listed price. Where I work ours is priced at $197. So you would pay $397+tax and $36 upgrade fee.

    correct.

    ----------

    no when it says "you're eligible for a discounted iPhone upgrade at a reduced discount". means you're for a discounted price..

    But when it says ""Great news! You qualify for an early iPhone upgrade with a new 2-year commitment." that means you get full discount for an iphone only....


    2 totally different things..
