Bought 3GS on Launch Date? when will you be upgrade eligible?
I bought my 3GS last year when it was launched and I just found out that I wont be upgrade eligible (@ discounted price) until 11/19/10 which will suck considering the fact that the new iPhone will be out between mid June and July.
Was anyone able to get AT&T to change the date to bbecome upgrade eligible? I pay over $160 on 2 iPhones ?

I was able to get my upgrade date changed, but that was because they had made a mistake when swapping numbers, but not plan. My line which is the second one wasn't available to upgrade till after my contract ended. Other than finding a mistake they make, I think you may be sol on that one.

It seems AT&T has been more generous this year with upgrade rollbacks for most early 3GS adopters, but with my corp. discount on my line I'm still under $100 a month which means I will have to suck it up and pay top dollar for my upgrade again this year.

EDIT! I take that back. After looking at Telus' Data plans they are terrible. I pay $100 or so a month on Rogers, and I get 6GB of Data, Unlimited MMS, SMS, 150 mins of talk time, unlimited nights and weekends, my 5 and visual voice mail. On Telus.. the most I can get with the $100 plan is 3GB of data.. that will not due. I have used 4.7 this month out of my 6GB. I am what you call. A heavy user.
EDIT! AGAIN! I take back the first edit. I am most likely switching to Telus with the $65 plan.

I think that the early update is definitely a strategy to lock users in before the Verizon announcement. for various reasons, I have a 3GS and no commitment so I'm a free agent. Upon release on Verizon, I plan to move quickly. Patience will be the hard issue now. I'll want the new iPhone, but I'll need to temper my impatience to upgrade while waiting for a Verizon announcement.

I bought my 3GS on the launch date and I just checked out my ATT account for upgrade eligibility and I'm able for upgrade on June 20. I'm wondering if it's that date because it's the launch date? Would be a pain to have to wait. I'm really wanting the new phone. Oh well.
