    I reserved my iPhone 3G S today, and I qualified for the $399 I was expecting the no commitment price of $599. As I just got my iPhone 3G 2 months ago tomorrow. Am I really going to pay that on the 19th when I pick my iPhone at the Apple Store? Why is people still getting the 599 price when there over 12 months but my 2 month old line gets 399?

    A question you should ask AT&T or just forget about it and count your blessings.

    Just sell your 3G now so that you can say that you relied on the promise to get the new phone at the stated price.

    Did you pay $399 for the 32gb? Mine is only 2 months old also, so if I can pull this off, I'd be siked!!

    If you are still in contract with another phone and haven't gotten an Exception Upgrade with an iPhone, you will not have to pay the no commitment price for the phone. The no commitment price is for those who don't want a contract and those who have already used an Early Upgrade for the iPhone 3G. I'm not sure with Apple but with AT&T the price you were quoted when you pre-ordered is the price that your card is charged when it ships.

    Feel free to PM with specific questions.

    Oh okay.. So since I haven't Early Upgraded from the 2G to 3G.. Even though I am not 12 months into my contract I still get (1) Early exception upgrade and from there on I will have to pay no commitment?

    There is a possibility that since you haven't tenured six months that they will make you pay the $599/$699. I would definitely talk with a Corp Store Rep/Manager.

    I spoke with Apple store and they said since theres and ATT site both said 399/499 I should get that price. I will call ATT in the morning.

    Also say I cant get the exception I have another line on my account that my bro bought the 3G the day it came out July 11th. And he is sticking with 3G. Can I get the exception on his line, and put my sim card in it since I am already paying for iPhone plan

    Question! Is it a Early Upgrade if I owned an iPhone 2G and Upgraded to the iPhone 3G in Nov. of 2008? If so, then would that explain why I have to pay $599/$699? Coming from AT&T's FAQ's it says an "Early Upgrade" is from one who purchased a Subsidized iPhone 3G and has NOT yet completed their 2 year contract.

    To break it down. I purchased the very first iPhone when it came out. When the 3G came out I did not purchase it right away but I did purchase it on Nov. 21, 2008 for $199. Should I have to pay 399/499 or 599/699?
