After reading the information that was released today on engadget and gizmodo and after talking to at&t customer service i have figured out how plans and pricing are going to work
New Customers (People joining At&t on July 11th):
You are going to pay the $199/299 price points.
Current At&t Customers
You have an existing contract ?[/SIZE]
For those of you who bought a subsidized phone either when you joined At&t, or when you were eligible for an upgrade, you will pay $399/499 for the iphone.
This is assuming you still have time remaining left on your contract. ie you are not able to upgrade your crappy phone for the 'cheap' prices
Note: Your current contract is deleted and you have brand new 2 year contract.
Note: The cutoff is 20 months so if you have had your current crappy phone for 20 months you follow under the below category.
You are able to upgrade?
If you are able to upgrade your current phone and buy a new one with the 'cheap' prices you are able to buy the iphone for the $199/299 price points. You fall under this category if your contract is expired and you are free to leave At&t whenever you want.
You haz oldz iphone?
You will be able to upgrade to the iphone 3g for the $199/299 price points
You hate At&t but love the iphone?
You are able to buy the iphone for a no commitment price of $599/699
However you cannot buy it at launch. You have to wait a while
You will not be tied to At&t. Although At&t is the only cellular provider to use 3g.
Note(ya another one): You will have to also pay an $18 upgrade fee when you buy the iphone
Still confused? Here are some videos provided by AT&T that will help you even further

All that said...there's NO WAY I'm going to upgrade. The new plan prices are RIDICULOUS! It would cost me $15 more a month just for what I've got now only with 3G speed. I have the 900 minute plan. $59.99 for the plan + $20 for data and $10 for 1500 SMS. It would cost the same for the plan and then add $30 for the 3G data and $15 for the SMS! Totally ridiculous. I'll be sticking with my "slow" 2.5G phone.

If you are current iPhone owner you can upgrade to the 3G for $199/$299 no matter what. Even if you activated today you could still get the new one at the discount.

Their is way to much confusion with this pricing crap, what stopping someone from going on ebay and buying a broken iphone activating through att and getting the new phone at the discounted pricing even if they are not upgrade eligible.

Otherwise once I upgrade to the 3G, I can give my 1st gen to someone have them activate it and then they can get a new one at 199/299. Then thye could give the first gen to another person and they could get a 3g.....and down the line it goes.
So, if you activate a first gen iphone today or Thursday, your good, after that I don't think it will work.

So im 6 months into my plan, current iphone 1st gen owner. The price doesnt really matter that much to me, $199/299 or $399/$499...but would i be able to buy the 3G in any way without signing another 2 year contract?

do anyone know much about mobile me and its pricing?

Is anyone else wondering if Apple and AT&T will let current iPhone subscribers upgrade to the new iPhone that is going to come out this summer at the same price as last year.
04-15-2009, 07:32 PM #18
But let's not kid ourselves here; The prices are irrelevant.
We will bend over and take the pricing (lube or not) like a champ because we like the iPhone.
I mean, what else are we going to do?
Get a blackberry? Get a G1?
I'll pay for my iPhone, thankyouverymuch.Isnít it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?
