    So, you're ineligible for the 3Gs, simply jailbreak and unlock and put it on eBay. More than likely you'll make up 75% or more of the cost of having to purchase the 3Gs @ that un-qualifying price.

    I purchased all the iPhones. When 2G came out, I paid $550 for it. I got some of that money back from Apple (or was it AT&T). Used the 2G for one year, jailbroke/unlocked it, sold it. Used that money for the 3G. Now, I plan on doing the same thing. If I can get $300 or more for my 3G, I only have to pay ~$130 for the new 3Gs.

    If you plan on giving your 3G to your gf or whoever, u're hosed.

    The math is really simple...:)

    But maybe that will lead to some worthwhile moaning and groaning. :eek:

    Everybody that bought an iPhone 3G in July/August/September of last year will be eligible for the $199/$299 upgrade price..

    I think you are misinterpreting AT&T's statement. This is what AT&T said:

    Some people who bought the iPhone 3G in July/August/September 2008 are not eligible for an upgrade until December 2009 or later.

    ^^^Which goes to show - if undeserving people whine loudly enough, they can get what they want. I miss the days when people valued their RESPONSIBILITIES as much as their (perceived) RIGHTS :mad:

    Ah, I thought everybody had a one year upgrade date, so I put it in those words.

    I'm not really sure how some people have had a one-year upgrade date. Most contracts will allow you to upgrade within 18 months, but not 12.

    AT&T didn't give up anything, that's their standard upgrade scenario. Those who pay more get upgraded earlier.

    I agree with the OP. They should never have done the subsidy because all it's done is turn iPhone users into a bunch of whiners. The amount of whining regarding the original iPhone's high prices pales in comparison to current iPhone users' whining (especially those who started with the 3G).

    He’s got a point although I agree that this isn’t exactly the best precedence for AT&T to set with any phone, iPhones included.

    This is not true. I bought my iPhone last September and my upgrade is still shown as 5/28/2010. If I want a Gs now, I pay full price.
