chances are sullplies will grow low and you will have to wait anyway. You went this far, you can wait longer

If you look back in this thread all I originally asked was if people had any suggestions as to getting an early upgrade. THEN, when I did post about actually GETTING an early upgrade I was excited, and I thanked everyone who helped me.
I don't understand why you are so upset about this, did you pay full retail price or something?
I called once and the guy wasn't having it. I waited about a half hour and called back, got a real nice lady who was willing to work with me. No higher-ups involved.

I wasn't trying to insult you, but your original post rubbed me (and clearly several others) the wrong way. You said:
I am going to try to word this better for you because you are obviously not understanding -
Calling and simply asking for an early upgrade and getting it is NOT immature. Every consumer has a right to at least try to help themselves out.
I tried, calmly asking, not complaining, and it worked.
I'm assuming you paid FRP and are upset that I got around it. I'm sorry to hear it if that is the case. Maybe you should've tried calling like I did.

And this is why the policies are changing and not allowing early upgrades for those of us who wait and actually go by are contract dates. Thanks for contributing to raised fees and the removal of early upgrades due to your whining and crying like a baby.
And no I did not pay FRP, I actually waited like I was supposed to and did an upgrade to receive my iPhone 4 on Monday of this week.

I called yesterday and since my upgrade date was the 18th, they went ahead and changed it to the 9th which is today. I was able to upgrade this morning at 3:00 am. FWIW, I dont think you are taking advantage of the system. I have 5 lines on my account which means I can upgrade my phones like clock work. For the retailer, its all about the money and if they can make it, they will do what ever it takes to make a dollar......JMHO.
