So, maybe this is something I failed to read or mis-interpreted leading up to the release if the iPhone 5s. So, I checked with both Att and Apple and it said that I was eligible for a partial rebate and my cost would be 449.00. So, I posted my phone I5 on eBay and got in line at the Att store this morning. (Not like the crazy lines in the big cities). I ended up waiting about 40 minutes. The associate was friendly and respectful but after typing all my info in he said that I have three options: 1). Buy at full price 2). By the "Next program" for an extra 27 bucks a month for the next 2yrs...or almost 650 total. 3). Add a line for 40 more a month or and extra 480 a yr or 960 for the life if the contract. I asked about my partial discount and he said that is not being honored at any of the stores....only online. So, I declined the Next program, as that essentially wipes out my partial discount and I was not going to buy at full price or "add a line." Is this what is happening to others?? Essentially you must have a "full upgrade" status or add a line in order to purchase in store. I decided since I can't have instant gratification and would have to wait until mid-October to receive the new phone....I am waiting for the iPhone 6 now. I wouldn't say I am pissed, but disappointed...had to cancel eBay auction, wait in line, and then....nothing.....surely there must be others.
