iphone upgrade loophole
the idea posted on the main site seems to be working on macrumors.com has anyone had success? will both parties remain eligible for an upgrade? all u need is to have an iphone account, no one said anything about needing an iphone.

i read a comment on one of the sites it linked to stating how it would probably record the various numbers specific to your friends exact iPhone. While I don't really know much of the logistics, I could see the computer coming up with a red flag saying "this IMEI/ESN was already upgraded." Not sure whether it would or not, but it's definitely a possibility to be aware of for your buddy's sake.

I did exactly what the post indicated I was eligible to upgrade and now I am. I asked my friend who has an iphone to do it for me and explained to nothing would happened
and now I'm eligible to upgrade it works flawlessly and I'm telling everyone that wants an iphone that are not eligible. Thanks for the tip you guys good work!

i tried the little move on macrumors that said to use someone elses iphone to upgrade to an old iphone contract, then i should be eligible for the upgrade. my account is still showing that i am not eligible for an upgrade, but its showing the iphone data plan. any idea if i'll get it?
