    Well something weird to report....


    When the fist official news about the3g iphone came out, I called up ATT and asked them would I be eligible for the 199/299 deal. The rep checked it out and said no, since you are not eligible for an upgrade until 04-09. Today when I went to check out my upgrade status it changed “This line is eligible for equipment discount pricing when you sign up for a 2-year service agreement. You can also take advantage of our no-commitment pricing option”. I have no idea why this changed, my only explanation is allowing all current iphone costumers to upgrade to the 3g iphone at the 199-299 price.


    Currently I am an iphone costumer and do plan on purchasing the 3g on July 11.

    Wow! My account says the same thing. Last week it said I was eligible on 12/11/08. Now it says:
    This line is eligible for equipment discount pricing when you sign up for a 2-year service agreement. You can also take advantage of our no-commitment pricing option.

    Interesting. :confused: I wonder if they are going to do this for everyone?

    I dont think they will allow you, I think this proves that NOT EVERYONE WILL BE ELIGABLE FOR THE UPGRADE...

    The "no commitment pricing option" is more intriguing to me.

    Yeah I checked yesterday and it was a no for both lines. Today its a yes for my iPhone line only. Pretty cool, not sure that I will be getting the new iPhone anytime soon but at least if my current phone dies I can get a new one.

    I wonder if it will only stay that way for a few months and then go back to the original date?

    My iPhone line is updated. Wonder if I upgrade to new phone and then sell it on eBay to make some cash if they would still let me get an iPhone. Hmmm.

    I concur. I was waiting for a non-iPhone user to post that. At least AT&T is making strides early in the game for current iPhone users.
