Hey so I won a First Gen Iphone in September 2007 and i activated it in October. I was wondering when i am eligible for an upgrade? I go to check on me and my brother's account online and when i click check upgrade options it says, "We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are unable to support this request online. For assistance with your upgrade please call 1-866-499-8008 and reference Error P1231." I have tried calling but have never been able to get through to anyone..I would really like to know when i am eligible for an upgrade since they might be releasing a new iPhone. THANKS!

Disapointing WWDC leads to questions on pricing

^Me too... will MMS be an extra feature or will AT&T use this as an excuse to raise the text plan prices or to keep prices the same?
Once you're in a contract, can you change it?
For example, I'm a pretty light texter, so I'd like to try out the $5 plan. But if it doesn't work out, can I upgrade to the $10 plan? Or am I stuck in the $5 plan?

I bought an iPhone 2G back in March '08. I've checked on Apple's website and I qualify for the subsidized pricing for a new iPhone 3G S.
My question is, when I upgrade to the new iPhone, can I get a new SIM card with my same phone number on it and cancel service to my current SIM card? I want to continue to use my current iPhone as an iPod Touch, and I understand that in order to be able to restore it or update it (?) it needs to have the SIM card it was registered with. Does anyone know about this? Thanks!

When I first bought the V1, Apple appeared to lock out iPhones which did not have SIMs activated on the network. What I found out when I upgraded to the 3G in July 2008 was that Apple was no longer bricking old iPhones. When you restore, you will still get the pop up on the home screen waiting for activation. Just tap it to dismiss, and you are on your way. No need to worry about unlocking the device while still active.

So if the old iPhone 3G is going on sale for $99 how much are they going for if I don't sign a 2 year contract? I have an original 2G iPhone and want to upgrade without spending alot of $ but am figuring that next year is when they are going to have a major upgrade to the iPhone line so I would like to not sign another contract.

Does the contract follow phone or line?
I will be using my hubby's eligible line to upgrade my iPhone 3G to the new 3GS. As I understand it, we can just swap sims through the help of an ATT rep to make sure everything is transferred correctly. But my question is regarding the contract tenures on each line. I have 1 year left on my 3G and of course the new 3GS will have a new 2 year contract. But who gets the new 2 year contract since we will swap phones? IOW, does the contract stay with the phone/device or does it follow the line/number?
I have heard that swaping phones/sims triggers that both lines would then have a new 2 year contract. I hope this isn't true because that would be grossly unfair.

I've got a bit of a dilemma. I purchased an 8gig 3G on 05/31 as well as a standard Sony phone for my wife after being well out of contract on our original AT&T phones. Seeing as I'm still in my 30 day return window on both of the phones, what is my best method of switching to a 16gig 3GS and getting it on 06/19?

I'm sorry if this has been asked already but if i add a line to my account to get the 199 price, can I immediately then cancel it and pay the 175. How does that work. Is there a waiting period before I can cancel it or does it benefit me more to just pay the early upgrade fee 399 + 33 dollars in tax?

You must wait, if you cancel before 30 days AT&T requires the equipment be returned, after 30 days you keep the equipment and pay the ETF.
If you add a line...you save some tax but pay an extra 40 bucks for the phone over a 2 year contract. 10 (for the extra line) X24 = 240
