  • iPhone 4 Price Drop Tomorrow



    A number of reports are coming in that the iPhone 4 is going to see a price drop at a number of retailers tomorrow.

    Phone Arena is reporting that Target will begin selling the iPhone 4 16GB tomorrow for $149.99 and the iPhone 4 32GB for $249.99. However, AT&T's 32GB version wont be cut in price at all. Also, Target will be running a trade-in promotion for 3GS owners giving them $100 off the cost of an iPhone 4 if they trade in their 3GS (which Target will be selling for $19.99). This effectively could cut the cost of a new iPhone 4 to $49.99.

    Engadget is separately reporting that Radio Shack, everyones favorite place for hard to find banana wire crimpers, will be slashing the price of iPhone 4's to $169.99 (16GB) and $269.99 (32GB) and the 3GS to $19.99 (8GB).

    New iPhones on the way soon anyone?

      Why would I have to sign a new 2-yr agreement if I'm paying retail for the phone?

      you will not have to sign up for another 2 yrs to keep your unlimited. thats grandfathered from iphone to iphone. i bout my ip4 straight out and was able to keep my unlimited so i see no change to the next one.

      This is what I was trying to get at. You got to keep your Unlimited because buying full-price meant you didn't have to renew or extend your contract right?

      So AT&T will force me to switch to the new data plan if I go through the discounted upgrade program to get the new phone at a discounted price? Or will they continue to grandfather me in even if I do the upgrade pricing and extend/renew my contract?

      Yes you can upgrade a month early on AT&T, I have done it before. But I was told by a good friend at the store that with the iPhone you are eligible for an upgrade after only 1 year! My contract doesn't end until the end of Feb next year, but I have been eligible for an upgrade for about 4 months!

      Sorry to say but this is this bogus info. I went to the Att site and it still the same prices. I also called my local att store and they said they haven't even heard of these prices happening soon.

      Also, wow, this is a first for Apple, isn't it? I always remembered Apple charging full price for the old iPhones right up to the launch day of the next model... perhaps they're feeling some competition squeeze?
      What i would do is see if the SIM card is going to be the same. if so then I would have someone else pay retail at an apple store then just switch phones.
