    Here's my predicament/question:

    History: I bought the 1st gen right before the 3g came out and Apple gave all 1st gen owners a credit whenever we decided to upgrade to the 3g (i didn't have to pay the higher price even though i was not signing a new 2yr contract).

    Predicament: I bought my 3g 28days ago and i only have 2 days to return it to at&t store (30day return policy) before i'm stuck with it. My problem is that if i return it and order the 3g-S, i don't know if i'll have to pay the $399 (for the 16gb) or the $199 price.

    Thoughts??

    Call AT&T but whatever you paid for the 3G should be right around what you pay for 3GS. If you got 3G for $199/$299 then you should expect that.

    If you paid the lowest subsidized price for the 3G, you'll pay the lowest subsidized price for the 3GS.

    woo hoo!

    I spoke with the AT&T store where i purchased my iphone 3g and they said that if anybody purchased an iphone 3g after MAY 9th that they will be able to exchange the 3g for the 3g-S at no charge.

    That's what they told me and i'm gonna hold them to it on June 19th.

    DO NOT WAIT until June 19th. When you finally go in on the 19th, there's a chance no one will believe you and refuse to allow the return/upgrade. Go immediately and at least get it in writing signed by the store manager of the AT&T you plan to swap at.

    The policy has been released publicly. The OP would be fine.
