Doing the deal!
My cousin did this last night. He traded his 3GS and out the door his cost was $24(admin fee). I think it is a great price! I will be doing this today with my 3G and my wifes 3GS. this deal is completely worth it to me. Now I just need the untethered jailbreak to come out for iPhone4iFan

if you guys sold your 3GSs for 375 and 450 then I guess I got mine for a bargain price on eBay. white 16GB 3GS in flawless condition with the white incase slider case, white mophie juice pack air, of course original box and stuff and it came with 3.0 on it and I have all the SHSHs backed up for every firmware since. How much do you think its worth NOW? hahaha. I bought it for 275 with free shipping 6 months ago.

Just called my local radioshack.
You will pay an 18.00 upgrade fee on top of the sales tax
on 249.00 so a 32G will run 292.00 out the door.
I'm sure ATT would wave the ugrade fee for me over at their place so the RS discount is really only 32.00
on the fence....KS
Heres another hitch!
No more unlimited data!
the upgrade automatically puts you on a tiered plan.
big users will pay big on their data bill so beware and do your homework before buying!!!!!
18.00 upgrade fee as well.

I did this last night at 8:30 and they close at 9 and I got the last one in stock so I got lucky
and also the 50 dollars off was yesterday only
I traded in my 3GS got 125 dollar gift card then bougt an iPhone 4 for 150 used the gift card so I had to pay 25 in cash plus tax but since your actually paying 150 you pay tax on the 150 so it came around 70 bucks
and if you have the unlimited plan and just upgrading ur phone you get to keep the unlimited phone
there also not too caring about the condition of the phone as long as it works and the screen isn't broken
mine was in pretty bad shape so I was better of selling it to radioshack

Anybody want a 32GB Mint Condition Black JB Unlocked 3GS? PM me with offers.

Radioshacks deal will end your
unlimited data plan!!!
heavy users beware!!!!
I called my local Att store and upgrading there keeps your data plan intact.
They can also waive the 18.00
For heavy GB users... att store is still the way to go!
do your homework!!
just got back from radioshack and they would Not save my unlimited data plan.
There was no option for ad they were working kn my account.
Guess I'll go back to RS tomorrow and grill them!!

You can sell your old iphone on ebay for a lot more.

Was looking at going do this tomorrow. I have a couple other items around the house that no longer get used that would basically get me $165 on a gift card so the phone would practically be free from my understanding. But I have to keep my unlimited data. So im guessing i have to go to the ATT down the road to get them to activate it and waive my activation fee? Or just pay them the activation fee. To me an iphone 4 for just the activation fee isnt bad at all.

There is a lot of misinformation in the comments of this thread.
FIRST: Someone said the $50 discount was only good yesterday... not true. I got the $50 discount today and it's good through the end of the promotion... 12/11 I think is what the article said?
SECOND: Someone said the price after their $50 discount and $125 phone credit was $70 after tax... Again... not true. I traded in my 3GS and got a $125 credit plus the $50 discount. My total price after tax was $31.45. Tax is 5% in my state and YES it was tax on the price of $149.
THIRD: Several people have said that by doing this you are also changing your data plan... This does not appear to be true, either. I didn't know about that when I was in there this morning but I did ask the guy if anything on my plan would change (I get a discount through work, etc...) He said my plan would stay exactly the same, I was only extended it for 2 more years. He gave me a bunch of paper work that I didn't read. Before posting this reply, I read every line of the paper work and also did some research on the internet. Nowhere can I find anything that says my data plan is no longer unlimited. If they are going to change your plan, 1) they have to TELL YOU and 2) they have to ask you what plan you want to change to.
FOURTH: Not necessarily misinformation because I guess it depends on what your upgrade eligibility status is, but they waived my activation fee as well...
I hope this info helps some of you who are still iffy...

Why the hell are all of you so excited and bragging about getting your iPhone 4 this cheap when you're ripping yourself off? Sell your 3GS for $300, buy the iPhone 4 with upgrade at $149, then pocket the other $150 or spend it on your significant other or for F's sake you can light it on fire if you want and still get more enjoyment than if you were to trade it in like a goon and essentially let radio shack steal from you.

And I don't think iphones burn well. Unless you get it hot enough to make the battery explode.

they do not do upgrades on this for customers that are eligible for PARTIAL upgrade credit. You have to be completely out of the woods and ready to re-sign into another contract.Screw #Winning, I'm #Juanning
