Background Info: I was on the phone w/ AT&T Corporate for about.. 2 hours last night complaining about the current customer upgrade eligibility b/c I bought a $30 refurb Curve in April and signed up w/ AT&T specifically for the iPhone. Did not expect to have to pay $200 more when I'm essentially a new customer. I would have just waited had AT&T reps and CSR's not all confirmed that everyone pays the same price. 1) I have a friend who has an iPhone.. although I'm not sure if she plans on upgrading to the new 3G. Could I take her iPhone for say.. 3 days before July 11th, insert my SIM card, upgrade my plan to an iPhone plan... then walk into AT&T on July 11th and be considered an iPhone customer? This would work correct? So long as my friend can stand being w/o her iPhone for 3 days... Also.. would this screw her over if she does decide to buy the iPhone 3G? Do you think they would do some sort of IMEI tracking and block that specific 1st gen iPhone from being used as a customer eligible for upgrading after I did so? 2) I'm considering cancelling my contract and making them waive the ETF considering I was blatantly misled and lied to, despite the fact they didn't know what they were talking about--they should have said so. This way, I would be a "new customer", turnaround the next day and sign up all over again. They also said last night that if anybody does cancel their contract, and renew it within 30 days, their number can be kept. 3) AT&T Corporate told me the Store Mgr. at the store where the sales associates told me that I wouldn't have an issue getting the iPhone for the cheapest price if I were to sign on to AT&T early, might be able to change my upgrade eligibility and get me the cheaper prices... Any thoughts on any of these scenarios?
