Details on AT&T's 3G MicroCell: everything but the date and price
As for your iphone, if you return the phone, you will get your money back for the phone and will be eligible to get the discounted price on the new iphone IF IT EVEN EXISTS IF it comes out within thirty days from now. Basically, the only way for you to get the cheapest price on the new iphone if it comes out will either be to cancel your service now and reactivate it if the new iphone comes out, or hope that apple and at&t will give current iphone users the ability to upgrade to the new one at the lowest price like they did last year. If you take the latter option, you will be stuck with an old 3g iphone and a new one. Basically there is no easy way to answer your question, but I hope that helps. And sometimes we don't see bills get credited for two or even three months.

One Last unlocked voicemail question...
If I unlocked the phone and got a voicemail, and the iphone voicemail is not working, would I get any notification of a new voicemail? Some icon somewhere or anything?
I am thinking of getting an iphone with no contract and unlocking it.
Thanks for your help.

You will get an alert on your iphone, as well as "red dot" alert on your phone icon indicating that you have received a new email. The only difference is that your voicemail will not be visual, it will simply call your at&t voice mailbox number when you hit the voicemail icon.

Neither... it will always be Apple. Apple has always been that way and this is because Apple does not want their names tarnished. With this process, the only thing AT&T is providing is service. Look at their macs and services, top of the line and their workers treat it like that. I have yet to see an unhappy Apple employee (not saying they aren't) and when ever you go into an AT&T store with an at&t bag in hand (or even box) and they can see the device, you hear sighs... why? Because they always know 99.9% chance commissions will not be coming to them.

A question I have is why is AT&T stopping people from upgrading to an iPhone for the upgrade price, when an upgrade is available?
I went to a corporate store the other day and was a little dismayed that I was going to have to pay the $499 for a 16GB iPhone. I am 22 months into one of my lines and wanted to get a 3G (I have 2 more upgrades due by the end of the year, so if a hardware refresh happens, I am prepared). I was told that I can not get an upgrade price until my current line is expired. But I could have any other phone in the store for the upgrade price?????????
I am in the same mindset of a lot of people on this forum when I say that I was willing to give AT&T money and sign a new 2 year contract, but they essentially told me to pay retail for the phone. I will not do that, especially if I am signing a 2 year contract.
Funny thing is I was at Best Buy later and heard them tell someone else the same thing regarding an iPhone..."Come back in 2 months."
I am on a $70/month Family Talk voice plan with family messaging, and data plans on 2 of my 5 lines. I pay over $250/month total. I say this, because I have heard that there were restrictions on iPhone upgrades based on account status and spending.
Any help as to why they are doing this, instead of upgrading and getting the 2 year extensions?

When I bought my 3G last year I was required to pay a $500 security deposit. I have missed no payments and made no late payments. My next payment will be my 12th which should allow me to receive that deposit back. When, and in what form, should I expect to receive my refund?

I am thinking of transferring my old cell phone number, from a local cell phone company, to ATT. I have heard there are problems recieving texts and so forth from that company once I have switched. Someone said they have to, the local company, port that number to ATT. Can you explain and elaborate for me any other disadvantages from keeping my old number? I would highly appreciate it, because the ATT associates in my town are retarded lol. Thank you.

I recently bought an iphone 3g from a friend who switched sim cards to use on his new palm treo instead. I asked him whether I should unlock the phone first before I use a att pre paid plan on it. He didn't know the answer. I have two questions:
1. Do I necessarily need to unlock the iphone first before I can put in a new att sim card for pre paid service?
2. Since my friend removed the sim card from the iphone and put it in his new phone could I just insert my new sim into the phone and start using it without accidently charging my friend's bill?
Is it technically safe to use an iphone which contract is not over and insert a new sim
and not have my friend get charged extra?

1- Prepaid is still at&t, no unlock needed.
2- It won't charge your friend, he's safe no matter what, but not sure how that would work with you... don't get comfortable, at&t has been changing those who are not on the correct plan. Since there isn't a prepaid plan for the 3g, you would definitely be a target.

im sorry i didnt elaborate from my previous post,
i didnt mean prepaid plan i meant like a pay as you go type where there is no contract or obligations. So if I were to just insert my new sim into a locked phone it would be like the previous owner's record didnt exist?
