    Well I guess all the people with T-mobile who sold their 1st Gen iPhones feel stupid now, I wouldn't be surprised if the 1st Gen iPhones continue to stay in demand over the 3G ones...

    "The new agreement between Apple and AT&T eliminates the revenue-sharing model under which AT&T shared a portion of monthly service revenue with Apple. Under the revised agreement, which is consistent with traditional equipment manufacturer-carrier arrangements, there is no revenue sharing and both iPhone 3G models will be offered at attractive prices to broaden the market potential and accelerate subscriber volumes. The phones will be offered with a two-year contract and attractive data plans that are similar to those offered for other smartphones and PDAs. AT&T anticipates that these offers will drive increased sales volumes and revenues among high-quality, data-centric customers."

    Just to cover a few issues and not sound like a know-it-all:
    I seriously doubt they will restrict purchases to only new activations because how will they handle non warranty replacements in the future?

    If they DO then as someone mentioned you CAN buy the phone for $199 and pay the $175 to cancel but you have to wait a full month as AT&T gives you 30 days to ride their network. Whoever said you would have to return the phone is wrong the $175 is a repayment of their subsidation for the phone so you keep the phone.

    Apple and AT&T don't care how much you spent on your iphone when you bought it so on and so forth no other phone manufacturer does LG, Samsung, Nokia, RIM, HTC, theyre all the same you buy the device expecting planned obsolescence, that's technology so if you bought your old iphone before may 27th 2008 then Steve Jobs is not wiping your *** and you will be biting the bullet on your old iphone.

    If you are not eligible for upgrade, our out of contract then you do not qualify for $199/$299.

    no you're wrong its like any other phone they wont give you special pricing if you dont qualify why do apple owners think they get special treatment the 199/299 is not because of apple its at&t thats paying the diff so why would they pay the diff if its not in their best interest

    How generous... as of today that's what, a 2 week grace period? Thanks for bending over so far backwards ATT.

    Im going to try and buy a "second" iPhone 3G for myself, and play dumb. Then i will turn around and sell it

    I doubt they can ask you to prove that you dropped yours in water and broke it. It will sure be hard to do more than one or two... I would imagine it would be worth a lot on ebay

    Are they determining purchase date solely by a sales receipt? Could someone, in theory, revirginize their 1st gen iPhone, put back in the supplied AT&T sim, and activate the phone with AT&T, and use the activation date of the account as the proof of sale?

    Finally someone else that thinks before they type. NO kidding. ATT or especially apple is not going to make you sign a contract if you have a second phone. I mean if you really want to make it legit say it was stolen from your car and get a police report.

    I guess no one here has ever heard of anyone trying to activate a phone that has been reported as stolen. The phone is locked out of the system and is completely unusable on the network. eBay is littered with scams of people attempting to sell phones that they "found" or some-such-thing. Someone buys them, and then find out they lost their money and have a worthless phone when they try to activate it.

    because it has not yet been posted:
    If we already have an iPhone activated July 27th 2007(or whenever it came out), can we still get 199/299 pricing? Will our contracts then be extended to three years or renewed to two years?

    Can anyone say Pay and run by the AT&T kiosk!!!!

    Ok look If you bought an Iphone since May 27th, 2008 then you can trade in your Iphone for a 3G Free of Charge (if you have AT&T)

    If you do not have AT&T then you need to wait for the 3G or Buy one now and sign the 2 year contract and then trade in your 1st gen for a 3G when they are available

    If you have AT&T and bought an Iphone before May 27th 2008 then you need to buy a new 3G when they come out and EXTEND YOUR CONTRACT FOR ANOTHER 2 YEARS!

    Might have to pay $199+$175 at the Apple store, and get a voucher for $175 that's redeemable when you sign up for the contract online

    ok so i am having a little bit of a hard time understand this, if somone could just let me know weather ive got this right then id really appreciate it.
    so i bought my iphone with a new 2-year service agreement in march, and not i want to upgrade to the new 3g iphone in july, i know i wont be eligable for the upgrade becuase my 2-years arent up, so does this mean i will be forced to pay more than $199 for the 8gb 2nd gen model?
