Just figured that I would share my experience at the AT&T store with everyone today. Actually, I should say my experience at the AT&T Experience (the store in West Hartford, Connecticut) switched over to a -much- larger space, complete with Enterprise solutions area, mobile wireless section, iPhone section, u-Verse section and another "advanced TV" section for their satellite offering. Anyways.. I walked in and it was pretty dead, so I had a rep pretty quickly. I let them know that I was interested in the new iPhone when it comes out and the subsequent questions followed about wether I was due for upgrade, had an original iPhone, etc. I purposely held back initially that I was currently a Verizon customer mid-contract. Once this information was brought to the light, the rep immediately became much more generous with what she was willing to offer. Basically if I wanted to, I could have walked out of the store on the stop with my number ported over, any phone that would have been "free" with a new contract and the ability to switch right over to the new iPhone on the 11th when it arrives. To me, it sounds like either the reports that anyone will be able to upgrade to the iPhone, regardless of their contract status with any carrier, on launch day. I can't imagine them allowing me to walk out with a subsidized phone knowing without a doubt that in less than a month I'd be back to get the iPhone. Anyways, decision time on when I want to pull the trigger and bounce over to AT&T. From the way lines, activation, and everything will be on the 11th, I think I might port my line over a little bit ahead of time.
