My father purchased an iPhone 3GS at launch, which was lost/stolen a couple of months ago. As a result, he had to buy a new replacement iPhone 3GS on May 4th (just missing the May 7th-June 7th grace period or whatever). Because he purchased this replacement iPhone so recently, the AT&T text message thingy says that he is not eligible for an upgrade. It seems kind of lousy [to me, at least] that he can't upgrade for another year, despite being an early purchaser of the 3GS--he's basically being punished for losing/having his first 3GS stolen, which he already paid to replace. Do you think there is any way he can convince Apple or AT&T to let him buy the new iPhone at the upgrade price? If so, what would be the best approach to getting this accomplished? Thank you!
