    Hello all! So after a few days of HORRIBLE service on my iPhone with AT&T and speaking to dozens of AT&T reps, they issued me a credit of $248 to my account. Now I'm checking my options here and I'm extremely curious..

    I paid $506 (tax included) for an early upgrade iPhone 16GB. If I wanted to return it, how long would it take to receive the refund?

    Also, once the refund is received, and I wish to go the At&t store and use my credit to get the iPhone 5 64GB, would that be possible with the early upgrade restored and using my credit?

    I got mine back in about two days. Your mileage may vary, of course, depending on your card and your bank/credit union.

    No, they issued the credit to your phone bill.
    You cant use that go purchase stuff.
    Close though, your wont have to spend that money on your monthly bill now and can use it elsewhere.

    Refunds are issued immediately. At least that's my experience.

    What if you purchase it online?
