    Hey guys. I have a family member who got the original iPhone after the initial launch...I'd say about six months after.

    Now, I'm forgetting the history of the pricing here: Were ALL original iPhones sold without the subsidy meaning that my family member will certainly be able to upgrade to the new one with a discount? I know people who bought 3G are still bound to their upgrade eligibility (which is like 20 months or something) before they get their discount, but I'm just curious about an original iPhone owner.

    Sorry for being an idiot, I'm just not thinking straight right now.

    Well, since your original iPhone wasn't subsidized, then you are eligible for an upgrade.

    That's exactly my question. I'm fuzzy as to the history of the original iPhone pricing. I know it dropped $100 shortly after introduction, but I just wanted to make sure it never switched over to subsidized pricing a while after that. I forget what we payed for it which is why I was asking...

    The original iPhone was never subsidized at any point in time.
