I am p----sed..... I can't get the 3G in my area anyway.... if you look at their coverage it is only around big cities in all states..... and what good does that do for everyone else? ATT if you are going to charge for it get it in all areas through out the U.S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wake up!
I think people should not be charged for the 3G crap if you don't get it in your area.... when you sign up you will have to give them your zip code for billing and such so if you are not in these areas we should not be charged for it...
Also if they want to jack up this or that with the new iphone... I will then cancel everything I can off the land line in the house and just use a basic phone with them so that my alarm on the house still works... or HEY!!!!! Just remembered.... I will turn off the phone completely and go satellite for my alarm system as I just remembered I can do that now days, it will cost me a little bit more to get hooked up to it but in the long run I can dump the landline completely with them.... ;O)
I am going to have to really think this all out before moving up as I am on the unlimited plan right now and I am paying $132.?? a month as it is and I do not feel like paying a penny more....

OK carry on the above conversation regarding the Family 1400:
I have the 1400 for 99.99(89 for first line 9.99 for second line(iphone), plus 9.99 media bundle(gives first line 400 text/1MB data), plus 20.00 iphone data package(w/ 200 text) for 130.00 a month.
If I get the 3G I can ditch the 9.99 media package and take the 3G Family Talk 1400 at 149.99(two lines standard) plus 10.00 for unlimited text, so 159.99. So it'll end up costing me 30.00 more a month. But the problem I have is that Ionly need the 3G on one line, not two! Is there a way to have just one line on Family Talk be 3G?Always remember that you are unique....just like everyone else.

So.......If currently having an iPhone grandfathers you into being able to upgrade to the 3G iPhone for $199, would I be able to take a friends 1st gen iPhone after he upgrades to the 3G iPhone, activate it then the same day or next day take it to an AT&T store and upgrade my account for $199?
How long do you have to have an active 2G iPhone account?
My account currently says it is not available for an upgrade so I am trying to find a way around it.

and just ask for the money. Jesus...that is expensive. I will stay with my 2G phone and Tmobile.

You guys i dont think this is that much more expensive. I pay 50 bucks a month for my crappy phone with just voice(450 min). All i have to do is add sms and data which is 35 extra a month. SO that is like not going out to eat twice a month.

dualcore-thats a 70% increase in your bill just for 3G and text, plus the cost of the phone...think about it that wayAlways remember that you are unique....just like everyone else.

i hope a lot of people really do their homework , and i hope less and less people decide not to stand in line on july 11 in the morning. that'll show both apple and at&t!
i personally dont have 3G in the area i live, and the closest city that does is 30-45 min. away, in which i dont visit that often.
i would really like to buy the new phone, but theres no way im paying for any of these plans. it just disappoints me, the 2G phone came out with a good plan AND it included 200 txts! but wait, that was EDGE, pfft, whatever apple and at&t, i really hope your sales suffer because of these plans. i would love for people to get their hands on one (however they are going to do that) and unlock them! i'm with at&t, and i want the 3G unlocked! thats just crazy!
i hope people keep waiting and waiting for them to become avail. on ebay, etc, and for them to be unlocked, or even better, buy one on ebay or whoever is legit, and then unlock it yourself at home!! like what happend with the 2G, but that was T mobile customers who were wanting that, and canadian customers i guess.
anyway, if apple wants to sell a million of these things by whatever date/year they have in mind , i hope they come up WAY SHORT. and then they'll say, what happened, where did we go wrong? haha
apple will prob. do yet another price drop, sometime, i guess, but that won't make up for these plan prices. *just my 2 cents*

ok so i sold my ipod touch to purchase the iphone 3g on the 11th, well i get it for the $199 or do i still have to check if im eligible to upgrade even though i didnt have the iphone before
07-03-2008, 12:25 PM #77
We still can't buy and resell the 3G iPhones over Ebay correct? Contract in store still applies?
07-04-2008, 12:46 AM #78
Someone help me, so i sold my 2g iphone about 2 weeks ago and for now im using a cheap prepaid phone w/ my iphone sim installed. My att account says:
"This line is eligible for equipment discount pricing when you sign up for a 2-year service agreement. You can take advantage of our no-commitment pricing option, with the exception of iPhone which requires a 2-year commitment."
So does this mean i will pay $199 or the 399 upgrade pricing?
07-04-2008, 01:14 AM #79
Can't we just buy the iPhone from the website or the store for less than $599 or $699 ? I mean it would be unlocked wouldn't it?
