    eligible for ANOTHER early upgrade ($399/$499 for 16/32GB) for the iPhone 4.

    However with the iPhone 4 I lowered my plan rates, so that I'm only paying $59.99 a month for everything ($39.99 for voice call, $15 data plan at 200MB, and $5 text plan).

    I'm worried that because my monthly bill is so low, compared to when I had the iPhone 3GS I was paying about $89.99 a month, that when iPhone 5 comes AT&T will not offer me the same early upgrade.

    Should I increase my plan to maybe $79 or $89 a month so that I have a better chance or am I ok? I could add more data or more minutes but I wonuld NOT use them. Trust me.

    Interesting question as I have the same concern. I'm also curious as to why having a higher bill would increase one's chances of an early upgrade?

    Well think about it... The more you pay, the more AT&T considers you "worthy" of an upgrade. In other words, to the front of the line. The others who pay cheap rates can "wait."

    I think that sucks but it's typical business practice.

    Do not feed the trolls

    In 2009
    OP Sells iPhone on October 29th
    OP Buys New One on October 30th
    OP Drops iPhone in Water on October 31st
    OP Attempts to Replace water-damaged iPhone on November 1st
    OP returns phone- November 17.

    Buys iPad, returns iPad, loves iPad
    Drooling for new iPhone, hates on fanboys
    Buys Droid, hates on fanboys
    Returns Droid
    I'm losing track.

    Do I have to go on? Ok...Same guy who has a friend whose refurb iPhone smelled like poo, Lady Gaga signed his friend's phone, iPad was stolen when he watching it...

    Tell me, OP, which Alter is trolling today?

    Moderators - can't you do something?

    Its not hard to get an early upgrade on your account. All I've ever had to do in the past is walk in a corporate store and ask. If they have any hesitation just tell them you're phone has been acting up and you don't really want to deal with a refurb.
