    Just checked online and my eligibility for a new iPhone has been moved up from not eligible until November 2011 (checked yesterday) to eligible for a new phone today.

    Oh man. Mine still says 11-7-11. Hopefully they're in the process of updating them now. :confused:

    FWIW, mine moved up as well. Mine said November just last week, I checked it yesterday and it says I'm now eligible.

    Does this mean I'm fully eligible for an upgrade ($199 + 2 yr contract?)

    iPhone Upgrade
    As a valued AT&T customer, we can offer you a discounted iPhone upgrade with a new 2-year commitment and an $18 upgrade fee.


    It said the same thing about a week ago when I checked. I have an iPhone 4 that I bought right when it came out.

    It means you have to pay $200 more than the upgrade price.

    Are you sure? Mine is specifically saying that I have to pay $250 + $18 if I want a new iPhone.

    Its true. AT&T has begun moving up the eligibility dates, I just checked and it says that I am now eligible to upgrade, last night it was stating November 21, 2011.

    If it was a full upgrade it wouldn't have said $199 + 2 year contract. It would have just said you can get it at the 2 year contract price. Yours is probably the same as mine which says 2 year commitment pricing +$250.

    ETA: Also if you see a date that's when you can get a full upgrade. If you don't see a date then you can get a full upgrade now.

    Just checked. Still 11/25 :(

    My bill is over $100 and I am the primary line holder. If it doesn't get bumped up after the announcement AT&T will be getting a call from me!

    Right, but in HXGuy's case it didn't say he had to pay anything on top of the $18 upgrade fee.

    Plus the other 3 lines on the same account do say that it's $250 on top of the phone price to upgrade.

    This.

    and here is my lovely news:

    As a valued AT&T customer, you qualify for a discounted iPhone upgrade at two-year commitment pricing plus $250, along with a two-year commitment and an $18 upgrade fee. Please proceed with the online upgrade process for pricing details. You may qualify for a full discount on a standard iPhone upgrade on 11/17/2011

    :mad:I am hoping that it is just making it's way around to everyone. I am sure it takes time but I am discouraged none the less.

    In case it helps, the message I get is:
    As a valued customer, we can offer you an upgrade with a new 2-yr commitment and an $18 upgrade fee.

    This line has been out of contract for a few. When I bought my ip4 last year I used a different line's upgrade as I didn't have an iphone on it when they bumped the eligibility.

    You're right I read it wrong. When he said $199 + 2 year contract I took that as meaning that's what his text said. Yes it didn't click that the bold was all his text said. It's early and I was up late so my bad. Basically if you can fully upgrade you won't see a price or date which he didn't according to what is in bold.

    I've been off contract since June. My wife decided to buy the 3GS on the day they dropped the price back in June of 2010, when Apple announced the iPhone 4, and as of right now she's still stuck with the $250 upgrade penalty until Feb 2012.

    still 2/23/12 for me...if i don't get bumped up then i'll jump to verizon as it will be cheaper to pay the ETF ($175 after 15 months on contract) than the $250 "early upgrade" fee...

    When I check via Apple I get the following. I also like how AT&T increased the pricing premium by $50 over previous years. I purchased my iPhone 4 on day 1.
