Eligible for an early upgrade coming from a Blackberry?
Came from Bestbuy not so long ago, and wasn't able to upgrade my girlfriends' BB Bold to the iPhone w the $299 price. She does have an upgrade this August, so she should be able to get one right? And she should be able to keep her unlimited data for $30 w the new iPhone right? The Bestbuy Mobile rep told me we wouldn't be able to do either. Can anyone confirm?
This really bums me out.. I got my iPhone, but I was really looking for both of us to get em.

I'd suggest going to a corporate store instead of a retail one. Talk to a rep there.

I am sure because you are changing from a blackberry data to iPhone data, you are consider a new costumer on the iPhone side, so your account its not grandfathered. which is why you cannot get the unlimited data package. with the upgrade date this is what i was explained by my ex that used to work with ATT: your upgrade date listed in your account is not exactly 2 years from the date of purchase, sometimes is 1 month or up to 3 months before. it all depend on you account status and history. again i don't work with ATT but i dealt with them since 2002 (Cingular then) and i went thru many "i need to have new shiny phone now" stages...Recovering crackberry user!

In the same boat as the OP. Have a BB Bold and full upgrade in August. Went to AT&T store and they said I could keep my unlimited data plan on the new iPhone. Forget Best Buy...... go to the source. All smartphone accounts w/unlimited data plans are grandfathered.
