Haven't been to the forum in a few days, but don't see any recent convos on this. My previous date to upgrade was Mid January, looking at the 32 gig 3Gs. Att site no longer gives me that message, will allow me to buy it for $299, plus a new contract as per the norm. If this is old news, that maybe they're doing this across the board or it's been discussed delete this or flame away, no matter. Also, I don't know why I was bumped up - the only thing I changed with my plan was to add unlimted texting a few months back on the family plan, 2 lines. Look like I'll be visting the Apple store this weekend!
