    Bought new 3gs last xmas and have an eligibility date of may of 2011. If I early upgrade, do I get the full subsidized price next May or does the K start all over?

    I just got my 3GS in march and they gave me the early upgrade price. People have reported that iPhone users spending 99+ a month for service see. To have leverage in upgrades

    I believe they are saying they are eligible for the higher price early upgrade, that is $200 more.

    I'm in the same boat.

    We want to know if by buying iPhone 4 at $499 price, if we are eligible for the complete discount pricing at the date we have on our account.

    I do not know the answer to this, but I might find out in the next few weeks. :)

    That's a rip off because you never get the fully discounted price on a phone then.

    Yeah I know, some people just do the early upgrade every year and thus never qualify for the full discount.

    No, when you do an early upgrade you agree to a whole new 2 year contract.
    So the old contract and upgrade date is moved way up.

    Not a ripoff.
    If you wait a longer you will get the full upgrade.
    Noone is forcing you to keep doing early upgrades and resigning new 2 year terms.
    Its just an option.
