I just checked my upgrade qualification. I currently can upgrade to the 32GB model for $499. It says on July 12, I can do a standard upgrade.
That is only 1 year from my iPhone 3G purchase. I thought the requirement was 18 months?
If I have a 1 year requirement, is that true for all phone lines on my family plan?

Good to know.
My wife (on my family plan) is eligable on 6/28/2010 (about). She got her iPhone in January of this year. My brother in law (also on the family plan) is eligable on 8/25/2010. He bought an unsubsidized iPhone in December of 2008. He also joined the family plan about Feb of 2008, so I have no idea where they got the August 2010 upgrade date for him.
This annual upgrade throws a wrinkle into the works. I still don't know if I can justify a $299 price, but a $299 upgrade, with the knowledge that I can upgrade again in a year for the NEXT model if I want, does add a new twist.

I am on a family plan, and it appears I am the only one eligable for a 1 year upgrade. Prior to taxes, I pay about $ 102 ($60 rate plan + $30 data plan + $30 unlimited texting - $18 discount), but I think it only looks at that one line. I don't know if it takes taxes into consideration.
Odd that I get a 20% discount on my plan, my data plan, but not the unlimited texting. Before I got a $1 discount when I had the 200 messages promotion for $5.
It appears that my brother in law, even though he did not purchas a subsidized iPhone (he bought one full price in Dec 2008) somehow got scr**ed as he is not eligable until August of 2010.

Not trying to be an *** but it's useless to dicuss this when AT&T is publishing contradictory statements. Then again step aside cause her i go If you looks for the document called "get iReady" at AT&T site they've published an early upgrade fee of $200 extra. But this morning as states on this thread they sent out an email stating people under contract pay $400 extra or $699 for the top of the line plus you agree to 2 more year. This tells me they're a bunch of headless chickens at this time. We will just have to wait for launch day I give them more time to admit all these errors and clarify. I predict there will be a $200 extra early upgrade if you're @ least 1 yr into contract. And if not and you do have To buy it outright dont allow them to renew you to 2 years that is completely wrong. They are either taking advantage or really don't know what they are doing and u should just buy straight from some place else like Apple or Walmart.

Well, according to apple, I am eligable to upgrade on July 12. I bought my iPhone 3g with a contract extension last year. My bill is described as above.
It appears I am eligable for an early upgrade, and my bill is only over $100 is you count texting (pre-tax, after the discount).
