    I have loaned a 1st gen, restored iPhone from a friend in order to get the upgrade eligibility for the $200 price. I have just activated it today. Will I still be eligibile for a 3G at the $200 price? My OLAM has not refreshed to reflect the fact that I have an iPhone yet. I REALLY need to know pretty soon, so a simple yes or no answer is fine if you don't have time to make a long response.

    Uhh, pretty sure that trick only worked before July 11th. I think you're SOL.

    Do you have any information that would back this up?

    since you've activated it, why not just go see if you can get one? What can you lose now

    Hey OP, good work. Real tricky. I bet you throw a good surprise party, too.

    On the 13th, I activated my old iPhone for my mom to use. Before activation, I check to see if she could get an iPhone 3G at the subsidized price, but she couldn't until december. After activation, it now says that she is eligible so it is worth a try.
