AT&T Loosens iPhone 3G S Eligibility -- Yippeee!



+ Add a Comment


Take a look at what AT$T told me on their website:

"As a valued AT&T customer, we can offer you a discounted iPhone upgrade at a higher price..."

Isn't there a bit of double speak there? "...discounted iPhone upgrade at a higher price..." Who the hell writes these things?



I was to be eligible in September. I checked yesterday (Wed) and it showed I was still ineligible. When I checked again this morning at 9am it had changed and showed me being eligible. I purchased online today, a 32GB for $299. I'll justs wait for it to arrive at my house



To bigbowood,

Check you eligibility tomorrow. In the video they state that the eligibility will change on friday. I got overly excited as well, but when I re-watched I noticed that it doesn't go into effect until tomorrow.



From AT&T's Press Release:

"All of that said, we’ve been listening to our customers. And since many of our iPhone 3G customers are early adopters and literally weeks shy of being upgrade eligible due to iPhone 3G S launching 11 months after iPhone 3G, we’re extending the window of upgrade eligibility for a limited time.

We’re now pleased to offer our iPhone 3G customers who are upgrade eligible in July, August or September 2009 our best upgrade pricing, beginning Thursday, June 18."

I bought the iPhone on the day it came out last year and spend over $100 a month on my bill, but they're STILL telling me that I'm not eligible for an upgrade until December. So I'm curious, who IS upgrade eligible? Thanks, AT&T, for offering us something you knew you weren't gonna deliver on.



What a crock of s**t.... iPhone users can upgrade, but non-iPhone users that have the same time left in their contract as iPhoine users are screwed up. That dam AT&T is being unfair.... whats good for one must be good for everyone.... treat us all as equal. F.U. AT&T !!!!
