BTW, it makes sense for ATT to allow early upgrades on the primary acct. it keeps me locked in for 2 more years. I pay about $220/mo with tax for 3 phones and in my case I never use all the minutes I pay for. But our usage varies and I can lower the minutes.
each year they get about $2K from me. Even with 3 subsized phones they are doing well.

And I agree with you- I enjoy getting frequent early upgrades (as the primary account holder of a family plan). They couldn't allow all 3 lines to get yearly upgrades, of course- that would be $1300/yr in subsidized phones. If they're only getting $2k a year from you, they are probably losing money (considering the cost for them to provide you with service).

I didn't get screwed, but it sucks. I wasn't going to get the phone, but it sucks that the option isn't there when one comes out that I want.

Boy when I look at it I am being really stupid with my bill.
I guarantee if they were losing money on me I would get no early upgrades.
For me, ATT in TAmpa, FL is really good service. we have one bad area where calls drop on the iPhone and my wife's BB. I have found there CS to be superior to Verizon, my last carrier. I used sprint about 5yrs ago, so I have no idea on there service. But I had no interest going back to Verizon for wireless.(FiOS is different of course..CS is still ugh though).
I realize different locations seem to have different issues and experiences. So now the nice thing is you get real good choice. I just would not want to lose surf and talk, that sure is handy when you need it.

I pre ordered through AT&T at about 6am yesterday, my order status when I check online says processing and under the product says backordered. But when I pre ordered it said it would be to me on the 14th. Anyone else notice this? Just wondering if I'm gonna get it on the 14th or not.

I see no issues with this. I would expect an order that cant be shipped yet as back-order. In fact last year this page did not update till have I received a tracking number and my iPhone4 was in transit.
there are no worries here. You are fine.

It's the same complaints every single year. A TWO year contract is signed and you expect the carrier to give you an upgrade after ONE year. Go back to kindergarten and learn how to add. Then go back to elementary school and learn how to read [your contract].
