So I was thinking about this earlier, and it seems like an interesting plan. I know there's a few threads on how to do this already, but another idea won't hurt. I'm on a Family Plan. My full upgrade date is 7/13/09. What if I purchase a 3G S as an Upgrade Swap for a new line of service (essentially costing me $9.99/mo). Cancel that line within the 30 days and pay only for service used. By that time, 7/13 would have come and passed and my main line would be eligible for a full upgrade. Not saying I'm actually going to do this, but it was just an idea. I also realize that I'm going to get the normal crop of people "just wait it out" ... "i don't understand why you're complaining about the price" yadda yadda yadda. Your opinions are noted, but this thread isn't for you. Thanks though. So, any thoughts on this idea?
