    trying to get rid of this old 3gs and get the 5 when its announced. the text i get is

    "payment will make full retail pricing avaliable for all handsets except iphone. after payment, we can offer you an early iphone upgrade with a new 2 year commitment and an $36 upgrade fee at a participating iphone sales location"

    basically, how much am i gonna pay? hahah thanks appreciated.

    If you're still on the 3GS, then your current contract is likely over and therefore should be able to upgrade with the subsidized pricing. You should call or stop by your carrier and verify it.

    So you locked yourself into a two year contract last year with a 2 year old free phone? :eek:

    So you need to make the late payment to bring your account current then you'll be eligible for the early iPhone upgrade meaning $199 + $250.

    exact price will be available later today.

    And, it appears you are not going to get any break as you added two year contract to get that "free" phone.
