  • Upgrade Eligibility Dates Begin Rolling Back With AT&T
    Ok guys and gals we all know that Apple will be releasing the new iPhone soon right? Last year lots of people were angry that they could not take advantage of upgrade pricing for the new iPhone. But it looks like AT&T is trying to avoid that fury this year and allow many more people to upgrade.

    And their right on the ball this year as they have started to roll back eligibility dates some have reported. I don't know if the roll back will be for everyone or if that date is only for certain customers and not all at this time. While there are multiple reports of this from AT&T customers, it could be they are only rolling back the dates for customers over a certain service level.



    One of the readers at Mobilecrunch.com stated...

    Not sure if anyone [..] has noticed this same thing, but my Upgrade Eligibility date on my AT&T account switched from 11/21 to 6/21 in the last day or so. I bought a 3GS on launch day last year, and my upgrade date read 11/21 since then. A few other folks in my office have noticed the same changes happening to their accounts as well.

    6/21? Could this be the day they release the new iPhones?

    Mobilecrunch: We’ve since confirmed that this isn’t an isolated incident, but it’s definitely not showing up for everyone. AT&T could be rolling this out across their database slowly. Another possibility: they may not have intended for anyone to see this yet, and just borked the query for a handful of people.

    Well I checked my account out tonight and mine has not changed yet... But hoping it does!

    Apple could announce the fourth gen iPhone at:

    1. WWDC (where they’ve announced every other iPhone), which begins on June 7th this year.
    2. Yerba Buena Arts Center, which Apple has purportedly locked down for June 22nd (one day after the upgrade eligibility date).

    What do you think?

    Check your account out and see if they rolled your eligibility date back yet. If they have not yet keep your eye on your account.

      So the question is how much more will it cost? And will there be a 64GB? if not I think I'll hold on to my 32GB 3GS until next year

      Yep. Mine is 11/20/10, 6 months earlier than it should be. Hopefully, by that time, some the bugs (EDIT: and a jailbreak) in OS 4 should be worked out.

      whats the difference between the above poster

      "You may qualify for a full discount on a standard iPhone upgrade on 07/24/2010"

      and what mine says

      "Our records indicate that you will be eligible for an upgrade to an iPhone at a discounted price on 09/04/2010"

      Thats a year from when I first bought it. From what I understand , if you are a current iphone owner you can always upgrade at the 399/499 price instead of the 599/699 full? So by discounted price do they mean the 199/299 or however much it will cost at launch?

      i checked mine the day the 4G surfaced to discover I was already eligible for a discounted 3gs with a contract. I bought a 3gs last june. Will be upgrading if that offer extends to the 4G. IF Verizon gets a version of it, ATT would be morons not to.
