    Guys,

    I have a few simple questions I would love some help with. I currently have a 3g and am eligable for the AT&T upgrade. So:

    1. Since I am eligable for the upgrade can I pre-order through Apple? or does it have to be ordered from AT&T?

    2. If I can order from Apple, is the first step to sync it with iTunes? or call AT&T and register the new phone to transfer my number and plan over?

    Thanks so much! The 3g was my first iPhone so I have not been through the transfer process yet. Just trying to keep it as simple as possible :D

    you should just plug it in to itunes and then it will ask you if you want to replace your 3G. "there should be no reason to come to the AT&T store", from the words of an AT&T employee. But we all know how smart they are

    It doesn't matter. If you order through Apple, they interact behind the scenes with ATT to determine your eligibility.

    Synch through iTunes takes care of everything.
