If you are really desperate, you can just add a line for $9.99/month and that new line will qualify for the $199 or $299 price. I suggest waiting a few days before the new iPhone launch just in case AT&T changes its minds and give the early adopters the $199 or $299 price point. Just a thought. At least your spreading out that extra $240 over a 24 month period. I suggest this plan for really desperate people. I am one of the few people who bought the iPhone and iPhone 3G on launch day. We got the discounted price the second time around but not the 3rd time?!?! Damnit, oh well.
