Yes, that sounds confusing. Fact is, my wife attempted to preorder the IP4S this morning, but her discount eligibility date isn't until March (she was willing to pay the extra +$250). I think with all the commotion early this morning, something slipped through the cracks and she was able to get the full discount price. I just checked her eligibility and it still says March 2012. Question is, when the IP4S arrives, should she activate it with the supplied SIM, or activate it with the SIM from her IP4? I guess I'm hoping that if she used the old SIM her eligibility date would stay March 2012. Sneaky, I know (I'm not proud of it)! Also, we've always picked up our phones and the Apple store and had them activated there, so we don't know how the process works when it is delivered to the house.
