iPhone 4G Upgrade Info - You May Be Eligible Regardless!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I love AT&T now. Im kind of happy to be a customer right now.

The iPhone 4G comes out at the end of June.
In order to be eligible to upgrade to the iPhone 4G - you must either have an already expired contract or a contract that expires in the next six months (aka anytime within 2010).

BUT - there is more.

I got my iPhone 3GS around September of 2009.
My contract technically expires in 2011 right? I can only upgrade to the iPhone 4 until like January or so? Nope - I'm still eligible for the upgrade!
AT&T has a very cool contract upgrade system apparently (not sure if this applies to other service providers too) where if you're considered a valued customer - you can upgrade within a year or so of your contract expiration. You just need to sign on for a new 2 year contract and pay a fee. Mine is $18.

From what I hear, it's like if you spend more then $100-150 or something a month for your phone. Me and my brother are under the same AT&T account so our bill is anywhere from $150-220 or so a month. They consider me special.

So basically, that year or so after your contract upgrade possibility AND the 6 month bonus means that if you're done with about 6 months or so of you're contract from the start - you MIGHT be able to upgrade!
Even if your bill doesnt come that close, it doesnt hurt to check anyway. From your iPhone dial *639#. You'll get a free SMS telling you. Mine says Im a valued customer, 2 year contract renewal, blah blah.

So, it's not like AT&T just puts the money in their pockets. They see that me and my brother are spending alot and they wheel/deal to keep us loyal. Verizon wouldn't dream of letting me do such a thing back when I was with them.

Interesting; all the lines (3) on my account pay a total of $100 every month.
I've been a customer since just one year.
The message still says I'm eligible for an upgrade for $18 now.
I don't even have an iPhone now.
Nor do I want one I think

Sprint does something like this, if you are a Sprint Premier customer (AKA you have a $69.99/month plan or higher or have been with sprint for a certain amount of years) you can get a discount on a new phone purchase.

You spend $75/month minimum on a mobile!

I'd love you to!

Verizon gives you discounted pricing when you have less than a year left on your contract, and the new every 2 can be used with 6 months left on your contract. Oh and we still have unlimited data plans...

Nice to know! My boss pays for all my iphone expenses and I did that called that *6396# and got a text back saying I can upgrade for $18 bucks. It's nice not having that extra payment a month, whatever it is.

Mine's been up since last year and we haven't upgraded any of our phones yet. We have 4 people on our plan so our bill is already over $100 ($150 to be exact). Guess I'm special too.
