Thread: ATT giving out free 3G iPhones
06-13-2008, 03:19 PM #141
I Bought the 1st Gen iPhone in July 07, What I want to know is. if I buy new 3g iphone, will i be agreeing to a additional 2 year contract to be added to the year I have left (3 years locked in is an issue for me, as in 3 years I am sure we will have the gPhone as well as a 4th gen iphone). Like lots of people who post here, I want the best device on the market when it comes out. If I keep signing new 2 year contracts every time a new phone comes out with this arrangement one could end up locked in for 4 years or more. PLEASE NO CONTRACT ROLL OVER, This aspect seems really unclear.

Here is the memo to AT&T Stores:
iPhone 3G Requires 2 Year Contract, In Store Activation | Apple iPhone School

All these people whining about contract, trade in, paying another $200 to get a 3G Iphone?????
It doesn't matter, trade your phone in and get the 3G for free if you qualify or better yet, walk in, extend or sign new contract, and sell your old Iphone. You will definitely get at least $200 for it so your new 3G is free no matter what.
Trust me, there will still be lots of demand for your EDGE Iphone on Ebay. Not everyone wants an AT&T contract. Lots of people just want the phone for an Ipod feature and to use it with their Wi-Fi at home or on the go and pop in their T-mobile sim card to make calls on a much cheaper T-Mobile network.
I for one will gladly pay $200 for an EDGE Iphone to hack and drop my t-mobile card in. I won't even add the data plan since the Iphone is pretty much a laptop once jailbroken and unlock.
The only thing that will happen is the Ipod Touch price sell will plummet. Why not pickup an EDGE Iphone for cheap on EBAY that has more features than the itouch for a cheaper price.

Good luck getting an Iphone 1st gen for $200 they are going for $300 and up here in San Diego so I agree. Stop your whining. Get a 3g and you'll have $100 left over. Don't forget ATT lowers your fee for canceling over time as well. Oh and if they come out with another Iphone in 12 months I'm sure they will extend the same courtesy they did this round to 3g owners to upgrade.

If i buy New 2.0 Iphone can I take 2year contract terminate and go over to T-mobile will phone be activated and jail broken and what will be the final cost?

And the iPhone will only be jailbroken if you jailbreak it, and it won't work on TMo until you do that and unlock it as well. That problably won't be difficult to do, based on what can be done now.
The bigger question would be why do that? There is precious little advantage to using the new iPhone on TMo, rather than using the current iPhone. The 3G on the new iPhone will not work on TMo.
06-24-2008, 01:49 AM #149to get a 3g iphone
K everyone is still confused on how its going to go to get a 3g iphone on launch date.
Here is the scoop, anybody that purchased and iphone will be eligible to upgrade to a 3giphone no matter if your only three months into your current contract and yes it will just override your old contract its not an extesion to your old contract. The 14 day return policy will change to a 30 day return policy so that ppl who were thinking of getting it and just cancelling service after the 14 days your out of luck. The reps in the att store will have to do the activation in the store so no more just buying the phone and taking it home, as of right now there is no contract price meaning (non-commitment price, retail price) so ppl who just want to buy an 3iphone out right its not gonna happen.

Are you guys actually serious? iPhone 3g is not even worth 200 bucks. Keep your original iPhone that you can do anything with and be satisfied. Maybe if people don't buy them, then ATT will have to do something about it???

I think the title is a little bit misleading. I think it should be renamed to "Trade your iPhone for an iPhone 3G with AT&T."

i have a question, it might have been answered already in this thread but i dont want to read through it. but my friend just got a brand new iphone 1st gen under warranty cuz there was something wrong with his old one. this was a week before the 3Gs came out. so does that qualify to upgrade for free?

I dont think saying yes or no is hard, but meh whatever.
Anyway, I suggest you talk to ATT about that. Unless someone actually works for ATT here or knows the answer, I would ask the service provider.
