NOT eligible for upgrade -- Add a line, termination?
I've done some quick browsing around about this, and thought I'd bring this up here. I've been with AT&T for the most of my cellular life, but I've done some carrier hopping and cancelling. I just signed up again for the long hall with AT&T in November, getting an iPhone 3GS, since selling it and ending up buying a BlackBerry 9700 at an early upgrade discount. (I got at least $150 off the full, no discount price)
I didn't plan on going back to iPhone, but I have so many apps I paid for, and so many that I'd like to use again (no other app-capable iDevice). Not to mention, going back and watching all the iPhone release conferences and getting hyped -- I've been saying tomorrow will be the beginning of the rest of my life! Yeah, I know.
Anyhow! I'm in no position for even a small early upgrade discount. I got the text that "we can offer you a discounted iPhone at a higher price..." but based on the fact that I was at AT&T getting an early upgrade two months ago, this will be a high, almost exactly FULL price for the 4G iPhone.
Since I'm determined, and ETF's never scared me, with AT&T -- would I get the new iPhone at the 2-year plan discount price if I ADD it as a third line to my two person family plan, then cancel my BlackBerry 9700 line?
Based on the price of the new iPhone, I'll probably be looking at cancelling my line anyhow, then getting the new contract price -- but I just had this thought, hoping the "add a line" route would get me the discount new customers will get.
Thanks for your help!
