    I think that I figured out a way that anyone with AT&T can get a free iPhone 3G.

    Wait until your equipment upgrade (Mine's in September) and get a smartphone such as the Pantech Duo or the Blackberry Curve. AT&T will charge you $99. Then, buy your iPhone for $199.

    $298 later, you will have two phones - your "upgrade" and your iPhone 3G. Put your upgrade up on eBay. Blackberry Curves and Pantech Duos sell on eBay for about $300.

    $298 - $300 = Free iPhone 3G and $2!!

    Does anyone think that this will work?

    If you waste your upgrade on the curve, yo uwon't be able to upgrade to the iPhone for $199. It will be more.

    Only current iPhone owners are eligible at anytime, but if you're upgrading to a curve you won't be a current iPhone owner.

    Nothing is absolute yet, unfortunately, so your plan may or may not work.

    It's not official until Apple or AT&T clarifies the situation and posts it on their site. It's all 100% speculation right now.

    I'm hoping they figure this out and make an announcement by the end of June.

    Welcome to 5 years ago. I've been selling upgrade phones since before it was fashionable :D

    Some tips from an old pro - AT&T corporate stores will price match Amazon has almost all phones (including blackberry, wm phones etc) for free with no rebate garbage, so you walk out with it free.
    Unlock the phone (tools for every phone are available free) and list it on ebay. You can end up with $350+ profit per phone, and that pays a pretty reasonable portion of my bill (I have 2 lines, so I get $700 every 2 years in upgrade phones).
