  • [EXCLUSIVE] AT&T One iPhone 4S Per Customer, No Commitment Pricing Found


    Our AT&T sources have been illuminating a lot today, as it seems an iPhone 4S Training Session pdf made its rounds through AT&T's rep emails today. A couple more interesting bits of info came out just now - it seems AT&T stores will only be allowing one iPhone 4S per customer on launch day. No word yet on how many Apple will allow, although at the iPhone 4 launch you could get 2. This is similar to the past, but is confirmed for next Friday's launch as well now.

    They also do not distinguish between upgrades, new phones, or no commitment pricing. Unless of course the doc is saying a user can get one of each - it's not clear.



    The document also outlines the no commitment and early upgrade pricing for the iPhone 4S. It is pretty standard, with early upgrades being $250 over retail, and the no commitment pricing at $450 over retail. Plan on spending $649.99, $749.99, or $849.99 for the 16, 32, and 64GB models respectively for the iPhone 4S.

    EDIT: Erica Sadun tells us AT&T is also texting people about the early upgrade $250 price difference.

    We'll see you guys in line!

I got as far as "add to cart" through Apple within the first few minutes and when I clicked on it, I got "session timed out". It basically worse after that with not even being able to have it check my eligibility with AT&T. I won't ever try that again. lol. Successfully ordered though AT&T. Hopefully the note about removing my unlitmited data won't actually happen. We will see.

      Just got confirmation email within 2 mintues of placing order.
      hmm not me weird but they charged my card 1 dollar

      I wouldn't worry about it if you see they charged your card. Did you also get the popup about your unlimited data (if you have that) being "NOT COMPATIBABLE" with the iPhone4s and it would be removed?

      btw You only get "reserved" if you order through Apple I believe. Oh and as far as your email timing. I didn't get mine until almost 24 hours after I placed my order last year. I was worried and remember being upset that maybe I lost my place in line. In the end I had my phone by noon at my doorstep on the day it came out. With them charging your card, don't let the timing of when you get your email worry you imho.

      Welll that's one way to make sure you get at least one. I'm guessing you didn't read my reply to your worries before ordering a second one.

      Hopefully they don't both cancel each other out.

      If the "Only 1 4S per account" is true for us AT&T oderers, I would think they would automatically cancel the second order. Of course, you never know and calling would be the only way to assure they don't.

      Yeah. The unlock no-commitment pricing is found BUT... It's not available until November AND it seems to be a different phone since it's only GSM and not CDMA/GSM

      It's sheep people like y'all the reason the iPhone is inelastically priced. Y'all so quick to bend over (rely on the subsidize prices) and take it up the a** (pay ridiculously overpriced limited monthly fees)!!!

      Like many of you, I noticed that AT&T didn't have any clarification on the data plan. It just said my old one doesn't work. I didn't like that answer so I did a 611 and called their customer service. She didn't say what the data plan they were replacing the unlimited plan with was but she did say it wasn't what we had. A cursory look at their other plans showed a 200 meg plan for that price and my wife uses 2 gigs a month on average. Also, I was grandfathered in under some 1500 text plan, which wasn't offered on their site. Be careful when ordering as they can lock you into something you totally didn't intend to end up with.

      "Awww man the 4S is so ridiculously over-priced, over-hyped and is just a speed boost and minor upgrade. But I'm still gonna get it anyway because Apple told me to."

      Like I said....so many people whine when Apple doesn't give them what they want when they want......and those same people turn around and buy the under-expected product that Apple puts out there anyway.......which is why Apple will continue to ignore you and put the product THEY want out there.

      So all of you stop complaining and go buy this phone because we all know you're going to cave in and get it sooner or later.

      so if i want to get the new phone, i no longer get my $5 200 messages??????


      i only send about 100 a month, which was perfect for me

      i'm not interested at all in paying $20 for "unlimited" when all i need is that $5 plan.
      it's stupid they don't offer it. if i stay on my current phone, i'll still have the plan.
      they should be able to just give me a new hardware device and NOT have to change a freakin text messaging plan.

      Call them. They added my 1500 back (I use it for a pager for on call at work). It takes them a little monkeying around to get it right.

      i hope so =/

      i've been a customer for 15 years, same cell number

      i'm still very bitter when i went from the first iphone to the 3GS, they used to include 200 texts in the plan, then they decided to screw you over to get the new phone by making you get $5 for 200 texts =/
      they just want to nickel and dime you everywhere.

      i don't need an unlimited $20 for texts =/
