    I am a current cingular/at&t user, and am wondering what fees I will be hit with when I get the iPhone. Any ideas? Ive seen stuff about an equipment upgrade fee (What the h*ll is the point of that?), but thats all. Hmmm

    These last few days will take FOREVER!!!

    You need to check to see if your account is eligible for an upgrade. There's a prominent link for this on your account page on their website. If you are - great! No fees. If not, you will have to buy out your old contract, and that all depends on what it is and how new it is.

    It has not been confirmed that there is a contract buyout. More reports have come in saying there is not a buyout, I have been told no buyout by my at&t store, and several others I've contacted. Typically when you want a new phone and you're under contract, there is no penalty, you just pay a higher price for equipment, this should be no different with the exception of the higher price, the phone is what it is.

    What I thought

    I am currently about 8 months into my contract, so no upgrade unfortunately.

    I've been seeing alot of stuff about just purchasing the phone straight up for $599, hopefully they come out with the info soon, all this stuff is killing me!

    I called my local AT&T store, listened to the iPhone recording, and selected sales, etc.

    I asked if I can upgrade one line of my family plan to the iPhone. She said yes, with a $18.50 upgrade fee. She proceeded to say the iPhones run $599 - $699.


    She was horribly misinformed.. :(

    another fine example of why we should not listen to anything employees say. chances are we'll know all the info here before a majority of them know anything. i doubt some att employees will even know anything next week after the phones already been on sale for a week. :rolleyes:

    Why would anyone sign a 2 year contract if they could just buy it for the same price out-right?
