    Can someone please explain this to me as if I'm an idiot, as I feel like I am anyway not being able to grasp these ever evolving terms.

    I picked up the 3G last september. Do I now quality for the subsidized price? (I saw it explained that way somewhere on this board, but don't know if it's true...)

    You really need to check with AT&T. Did you already call or check online and they said you don't qualify? Only AT&T knows for sure.

    uhm just type *639# and call from your iPhone. Then you'll get a text from AT&T with the details.

    This is posted somewhere else I am sure of it. :)

    Your monthly bill before taxes has to be $99+ to qualify.

    Hmmm, so could I bump my bill up for the time being with a higher TXT plan or something like that to get over the $100 hump, then qualify in theory...?

    LOL! Nope not going to happen. Your AVERAGE bill since your new contract started in September needs to be > $100. The reason for this is if your bill is over $100 AT&T can recoup the subsidiary they gave you when you bought your phone faster. The faster they get to that magic number which is a percentage of your monthly bill the sooner they can offer you a new subsidiary and a new contract.

    So changing your bill today then trying to get a phone tomorrow or next month will not work.
