Call AT&T and ask to speak to the retentions department. They're able to move up your upgrade date, but they will probably insist that you place the order through them. They moved mine up by a year so I know it can be done. Good luckMy wife's iphone just broke, and her eligibility isn't available for another month. If she gets it fixed, she isn't going to want to buy a new phone in 30 days. Any hints on getting ATT to move her upgrade date up?
He may actually get an iPhone 6 or 6+ quicker the way they did it. Now, he'll be able to order online for Apple store pickup!If you were speaking to retention.. you would have been able to upgrade right away through them... My upgrade got moved up by ~3 months lol (ordered on 9/26, actual upgrade date is 12/22)
I got my iPhone 6 from AT&T through the retention department relatively quickly (original shipping window of 10/9 - 10/20, received 10/7). However, if I'd been able to move up my eligibility from the end of October to 10/1, I would have been able to get one through online order pickup almost a week earlier. Oh, well: hindsight is 20:20. Something to keep in mind for next time...That's true... Waiting for AT&T to ship is taking forever...
I hear you. my contract was off a few weeks and I can't preorder like many people. I was able to get AT&T to move up two weeks to 9/19.I was out of the country when the Iphone 5 came out, so didn't get to purchase till 12/18/2012... It hasn't been fun to wait for eligibility in december to finally order a phone. Especially with the availability of the 6+ 64gb SG the way it is.
What do you say to the reps to get this to go through?
I've been with att for over 10 years now and would like to get back on the September/October Iphone upgrade cycle again.
I'm still on a Unlimited plan with my wife on the 2gb plan. I don't intend on moving to a NeXt or Mobile share plan.
What did you decide to do.I spoke to att retentions. She offered me to add a line and then take that upgrade and give to my wife. And put a cheapo phone on that line. So it's only $10 more and I have an upgrade pending in December.
She could also override my upgrade eligibility and place an order from them. So I could order a new iPhone directly from them today! But she couldn't end my contract so I could get it from another provider target. Best buy. Att store. Apple store.
But their ship dates are ridiculous through att.
All iphone 6+ 64gb 28-35 days.
All Iphone6 + are 28-35 days
Iphone 6 64gb sg 21-35 days
Iphone6 64gb Silver and gold 14-21 days
Iphone 6 128gb Silver gold 3-5 days
Iphone 6 128gb sg 7-14 days
anyone have success getting 1year earlier upgrade who was on a legacy plan aka NOT next or mobile share?Ask the wife which phone she wants, then go from there. Might add a line, and pick up a phone in locally. that way her December contract will be up and upgrade waiting for me for next year at iPhone 6s time.
And probably override eligibility and order the iPhone 6+Sg 64gb for myself.
It's been only 7 months since I bought 5s and I just called and asked if they can remove early upgrade fee to switch to 6plus. Since I'm using 10gb share value plan with my family, it was better to go with their NEXT plan. Don't tell them her phone is broken. Just tell them you want to upgrade to an iPhone 6.

hmm i wonder if its because you switched to next. I ordered two through att and one through apple. We were turned down to remove the early upgrade charge when we got the a 5 two years ago. Still for 3 phones its quite a bit of money so we may try again..i suppose I will have to threaten to leave lol.It's been only 7 months since I bought 5s and I just called and asked if they can remove early upgrade fee to switch to 6plus. And they removed it for me.(I had to talked to two people.) Since I'm using 10gb share value plan with my family, it was better to go with their NEXT plan. Don't tell them her phone is broken. Just tell them you want to upgrade to an iPhone 6.
