    So here's what happened.

    I bought the iPhone 3G a few weeks after launch day, then a year later got the 3GS ($399) with an EARLY UPGRADE. (Bought the 3GS on launch day)

    A week ago I checked my upgrade eligibility and It was in June 2011 (12 months/ 1 year out). So...naturally I assumed i'd probably get the iPhone 4 for the regular $399 early upgrade price.

    So today I just went to confirm how much my iPhone 4 would cost by going online to see how much the 32gb 3GS would cost (same price as iPhone 4 16gb)

    I see "$199"....

    I got super excited and called AT&T and they told me that I would get the iPhone 4 16gb for the two year contract price of $199. Wow! But How? I thought AT&T pushed upgrades from 6 months out, not a whole year!

    Why do I have the full subsidized price? Why didn't I get it last year?

    I have:
    450 Minutes
    Unlimited Texting
    21% Fan Discount.

    What if every single person posted this? I mean, I'm glad for you, dude, but did it require a new thread? No, not really.

    P.S. Your ebay auction has been taken down.

    I advertised it having iOS4 and ebay removed it, apple never said it couldn't be up or anything. Then I called apple corporate and they said it was okay to list it. psh...eBay....

    You signed a new contract in June 09. 18 months later, you're eligible for a full upgrade. 18 months for you is Dec 10. AT&T is doing something special for the iphone 4 and letting anyone with an upgrade in 2010 upgrade now.

    Plus, prior to the 21% FAN discount, you're paying well over $100 a month, which is apparently the pay line for deciding if they're going to give you a free upgrade every year.

    Interesting, yet annoying. My upgrade date says 5/31/2011 and it hasn't changed since I started looking. AT&T says $399/$499. I have a 32GB now, but at $499? Not sure....

    I also got the 3GS on launch day, and pay $39 voice, $30 data and $5 text. And i am eligible for the full upgrade too. Thank you AT&T, maybe you're not that bad after all :)

    When you checked online does the page look like this?
    My situation is similar to yours and the online page looks like I might be eligible but I have no way to add iPhone 4 into cart to find out. How did you know exactly $199 would be upgrade price? Did you text *639#? When I texted I got 2/2011 date which is not eligible for $199 price.

    I paid $499 for the 3GS and it's stuck on Feb 20 of 2011.

    It would appear you are NOT eligible for ANY discount. That's what my account says. Notice the "no-commitment" pricing. This means you will have to pa $599/699.

    let me know if that changes for you, I am in the same situation except I paid $299 for the 3GS on launch day. I am not going to pay $499 for the 32 this year, we should be getting it at the subsidize price like everyone else. PM me when you find something out. Good luck

    I sold mine with 4.0 on it and I even said it in the listing had no issue. I'll be shipping out probably tomorrow.

    How do you figure he's paying well over $100 a month when he's on the lowest plan possible (450 minutes at $39.99). With unlimited data he's only at $69.99 and even if you add the unlimited texting at $20.00 (not even sure if that counts towards MRC anyway though) he's still only at $89.99.

    I purchased a 3GS (upgrade from 3G) on July 17th (or 27th?). My eligibility changed today from 12/27/10 to immediate upgrade. I'm happy.
