Hi guys. I'm new to the forum. I've spent the last couple of hours reading about all the claims that AT&T will not let exisiting customers (like myself) purchase the 3G iPhone for the advertised prices of $199/$299 without being upgrade eligible. Well, I just a made a couple of calls to AT&T, the first call being to their national call center. I was told by a CSR guy (who seemed to be pretty confident) that non-upgrade eligible existing AT&T customers will indeed have to pay the "full" price for the iPhone. He said CSRs had yet to be informed on what that "full" price would be. Needless to say, I wasn't happy. So, I decided to call my local AT&T store. I explained to an employee what I had been told by the national CSR. He told me that what the national CSR said has not yet been confirmed by AT&T; he went on to say that AT&T should be releasing some official information about this issue some time mid next week. He said this has been the number one "iPhone 3G question" he's been getting from people all week long. So here's basically what dissapoints me. I'm a current iPhone customer. I have been upgrade eligible even before I purchased my iPhone last June when it came out. But purchasing the iPhone didn't affect my upgrade eligibility at all. So now at this point, I figured: why don't I go ahead and sell my current iPhone on eBay before the mad rush? Oh, but wait, I still need a cell phone for the interim until July 11. So, I figured, why not take advantage of my upgrade eligibility and get a new phone to use during the interim, and then sell it after I buy the 3G iPhone. Well, I don't know if that's gonna be possible any more. Sadly, I honestly believe that AT&T is only going to let upgrade-eligible customers (aka "qualified customers") purchase the phone at the advertised price. Please let me know if you've heard otherwise.
