AT&T previous iPhone 3G owner upgrade
So i bought my iPhone 3G like 2 days after it came out, and I heard about the new AT&T rule about the upgrade if you bought the 3G in July, August and September. So i called AT&T today and they said i could upgrade for the lowest price in December. I'm really confused about it, anyone else have this problem?

Just call and argue with them. You have to get lucky and get a knowledgable account representative. There's a lot of dumb one's and know nothing about their jobs. It's sad when someone who doens't work for AT&T knows more about their own service than they do. At an AT&T store I basically set up my mom's account myself because the rep had no clue what to do. Same thing happens on the phone.

Regardless of how old your plan is, you can upgrade to a new iPhone 3GS for $200 more than then 2 year plan price... meaning $399 for a 16GB and $499 for a 32GB. This is an "early upgrade" option, which resets the clock on your 2 year contract.
I'm probably going this route since I bought my 3G about 4 months ago, and can probably get 400-450 for it since it's 16GB. Once QuickPwn and ultrasn0w are released, my phone will go on the market as a 16GB 3G running 3.0 jailbroken and unlocked. Should definitely sell fast.

You need to be 18 months into your contract to get the discounted price.. If you just got it last July, you are not even 1 year into your contract. That is why your date is in December. Sometimes they let you upgrade after 17 months or perhaps even 12 months .. if its 12 months your monthly reoccurring charge has to be over $100.
