When the iPhone launched a year ago I read what I could at ATT on qualifying. I was worried about my current 2 year contract and the required iPhone 2 year contract. To my surprise, as all well known by now of course, they just started the 2 years over on top of your current account, and upgrade status didn't matter, as it wasn't subsidized then. Though, I swear I read that your upgrade status, where ever it was when you bought the first iPhone, it stayed the same. So if you had 12 months until your next equipment discount, after buying the iPhone, you still had 12 months. It wasn't reset with the new 2 years. That was a good thing, they didn't cheat you out of your next real upgrade. But now it seams with this 3G subsidized iPhone, all current iPhone users are some how get a free ticket for the discount, regardless of their account's upgrade status. Like say someone bought an iPhone 4 months ago, and they had 12 months before their upgrade discount. Then they should still have 8 months left at the moment before they could get any upgrade. Yet, some how it doesn't matter for the discounted iPhone? That's a slap in the face to all the other AT&T customers that have to wait still. If they are going to give a free ticket to all the current iPhone users that had a wait, then they should do it for everyone. What made iPhone users so special over any other ATT customer with a different phone? And now the idea is floating around that maybe you could simply "Borrow" an iPhone and use your sim card to activate an iPhone plan on your account, and then you'd be instantly eligible for upgrade. That's how crazy it is.
