I'm just wondering... how is everyone able to upgrade to the iPhone 5 without paying full price? Was it just a coincidence that you happened to be eligible for an upgrade with your wireless carrier so you can pay the subsidized price for the iPhone 5 instead of paying full price? It seems many people are able to do this. Were you just waiting in anticipation for the new iPhone 5 to be released, while using an old phone? Or are you just signing up with a new carrier? Given that many people are locked into a 2 year contract, I don't see how so many people are eligible for upgrades at just the right time when the iPhone 5 comes out. This question obviously doesn't apply to people who are buying the iPhone 5 at full price. Please let me know, as I'm interested how so many people are eligible for upgrades with the subsidized prices instead of paying full price. If you could share what carrier you're with, and what your method is, that would be great.
