Thread: Question About ATT Pricing on 3GS

  1. #1
    Default Question About ATT Pricing on 3GS
    Alright, I am a first generation iPhone user. I bought my iPhone around January of 2008 and started a contract with ATT - which puts me at about one year and five months into this contract. Basically what I am wanting to do is buy the new 16GB iPhone 3GS - but I want to be able to pay the $199 for it. The whole term of "upgrading/eligibility" is kind of confusing me so I was wondering if someone could just simply tell me, with the above knowledge of my account, will it be possible for me to be able to purchase the new 16GB for the $199 price? Even if it calls for me to renew my two year contract that is fine with me, I would just really like to get the iPhone at the $199 price.

    If you dial 611 on your phone they can tell you exactly what you are going to pay

    I was told by a friend of mine at AT&T that those of us with the first gen iPhones SHOULD be eligible for the lower tier pricing.

    If you started your contract in January 2008 then as you said, you haven't finished your contract. You won't be able to get the phone at $199 but they will give you the early discount upgrade price at $399 and a $18 upgrade fee. At least what AT&T told me

    Go to Apple.com and go to the store and act like you're purchasing a 3GS. Once you get so far into entering your information it'll tell you your price specifically.

    This isn't true. I bought my 3G in late September 2008 and AT&T let me upgrade at the standard 299 price for the 32gb 3GS. They released a statement on the 18th regarding this policy change for certain iPhone users. The OP most definitely would qualify for the best pricing. They also waived my upgrade fee, which was a pleasant surprise.
