Thread: $199 iPhone for you. Oh, and it has GPS.

is a discussion within the

iPhone News

forums, a part of the

General iPhone

So what can we do with our old phones? Hopefully Apple will keep it's current customers in mind and give them some sort of discount trade in.

    Is it just me, or shouldn't picture mail definately be something Apple should be addressing in the next Iphone? The website you have to log into to get your picture mail is horrible for a phone that at one time cost all of us in the begining $600. No?

    I'm sure there are people that could really use GPS. It sounds like another reason for people to be playing with their phone instead of paying attention to driving the car.

    I'm hoping that 3G will be awesome. Fact is...none of know how it will affect the iPhone.

    Another fact is that none of know what battery life will be like with GPS and 3G.

    I have a hunch 32gb iPhone isn't far away.

    My iPhone is working fine right now.

    For those reasons, I'm gonna sit back and let the noobs test the new phone until the 32gb comes out. Then I'll watch them whine about how they should have waited.

    I can not for the life of me understand why anyone thinks they should get some kind of deal because they were original iphone purchasers just because a new one comes out. What is AT&T supposed to do with your old trade in? AT&T isn't a car dealership. I've never ever seen a used cell phone section at a cell phone store. They sold a product to you and you agreed to buy it. The end.

    What do you do with your old phone? You sell it on ebay like everyone else.
    Hmm...

    if the standard rebate eligibility rules apply, if you have been with AT&T for 18 months you'll be eligible to resign for 2 years to get the rebate and of course if you're a new customer, otherwise no...

    So what will this mean for non-contract buyers? About how much should an 8gb iPhone be without buying the contract? I'm trying to figure out if I should wait to buy, or get one now.

    Great idea for them to do this while nobody can qualify for the upgrade discount.
    You might want to check your ATT account everyone. I far as I know me and my wife are both eligble for upgrade through ATT since the iPhones we purchased were not subsidized at all check your account and post please. Ours are open eligble and ready for the 3G...LOL

    I doubt you'll get 200 for if you sold it right now, i was at an At&t store the other day and they sell refurbished 8gb for $250.

    And existing AT&T users with more than 4 months left on their contract (all current iphone users) won't qualify for the discount either....

    Thats normal practice right now for AT&T customers. If you want a new phone you have to be "eligible...i.e. 4 months left on your contract. Otherwise you pay the full unsubsidized price. Didn't really come into play for existing AT&T customers when they bought the iphone because there was no discount.

    it seems lately that the terms "news" and "speculation" have become synonymous...
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    I absolutely do not believe this RUMOR. The Fortune writer that wrote it is a complete chump who has never been correct in his predictions. I just don't think AT&T needs to cut the price to increase sales. People are foaming at the bit for a new iPhone and would probably trade their first-born child for one. Sure they could do it, I suppose and I could see why with a subscription-based model that they could absorb that $200 over the life of the contract. But, multiply $200 times all the new iPhones, and you get a HUGE number. I'm just not sure it makes since to subsidize something when they clearly don't have to!

    we will most likely be given the chance to renew our 2 year agreement in order to get the pricing.

    thats how verizon gets ya

    funny thing is that i was with verizon for 6 years and always said no more contracts if i ever leave and then the iphone comes along LOL.

    I bought my phone from an AT&T store, and I have been eligible for upgrade since day one... My account never showed a 2 year extension with the purchase, I could upgrade right now if I wanted to...

    Guys, since the 1st gen iphones were not subsidized by AT&T.... you can upgrade at anytime and receive your 2yr discount on any phone as long as you restart a 2 yr agreement.
    Main Phone: 2.0 / AT&T
    Test Phone: sold

    Don't forget to thank me
