What are other people planning to do if you have AT&T but are not yet eligible for a full upgrade on the new iPhone? I got my iPhone 4 at launch last year, I pay $93/ mo (including tax and fees) for their lowest number of talk minutes (450 which I never use all of), unlimited text and unlimited data (grandfathered). When I text *639# I get a message that says I MAY be eligible 11/18/2011 unless I pay $250! My options seem to be 1. Wait until 11/18/2011 for the new iPhone. It's only one month. 2. Pay the $250 extortion fee and gets the new iPhone when it launches 3. Buy an Verizon iPhone and then pay an early termination fee to AT&T. 4. Open a second AT&T line on my account and buy the new iPhone on it. 5. Call AT&T and threaten to cancel my account and see if they alter my status. 6. Be happy with my iPhone 4 and wait until the iPhone 5s or 6 comes out. I gotta admit, I'm Jones-ing bad for the new phone. I've never considered switching to an Android phone because I felt I had to much invested in Apple media, particularly music, but I've started using Spotify's mobile app for my music fix. So having my iTunes music on my phone isn't necessary anymore. I also have an Apple iPad and laptop, so that compatibility is also something I'd like to maintain. Is there an option I haven't thought of? Is there anything else I should consider? If you're in the same boat as me, what are you planning to do? Has anyone tried calling AT&T to get the update changed? *What was the outcome?
