    So -

    Out of curiosity - is anyone getting the following error on ATT's website when they check to see their eligibility?

    An Error Has Occurred

    There appears to be an unidentified problem with your request. Unfortunately, we can not continue with your request. To return to My Account, click the Manage My Account link.


    Just curious as it could indicate a database update prior to tomorrow's event.

    Of course - it could just be my account and/or mean nothing....

    Dial *NEW# aka *639# ( a free phone call ) and you will receive a free AT&T SMS Txt message with your upgrade eligibility status and if a fee is required.

    Database update or not, mine did suddenly change. Bought an iPhone 4 3 weeks after launch; checked two weeks ago and it was still showing 3/4/2012. Just now, it's now been bumped to 12/4/2011.

    (Solo line, cheapest minutes plan, FAN discount, unlimited data, 1500 texts. Bill is usually around $70 with taxes.)

    mine says I am eligible on 11/18/11. Which is 6 months earlier than the end of my two years.

    Usually with iPhones they let you upgrade early. We'll see.

    My wife's line was scheduled for a upgrade in March/12 and she got bumped to this week and my line was scheduled for Dec/11 and I got bumped to March/12. Called at&t to ask what happened and they said that my wife's line was the primary line. The funny thing is that we both got the iP4 the same day last year (July/10).

    Sorry but nothing funny here just the normal cycle. Based on your comment about a primary line. You have a FamilyTalk rate plan and your wife's line is the primary line so it has a much higher MRC then your add-a-line that is $9.99 + any features.

    You don't split the rate plan. I would guess that your wife's line has a MRC above $69.99 per month.

    As much as people bitch about AT&T they are actually pretty generous about contract renews. After all you did sign a 2 year contract. Which for many of you would have to wait till closer to the Iphone 6. Also the last few years AT&T has upgraded tons of people early so they can get shinny new iPhone. not much of a conspiracy theory if you ask me.
