    Hey Guys,
    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.

    You need not worry. As before, when the next iPhone is announced in a couple weeks AT&T will push your upgrade date up. Just be patient and you shall see.

    it depends on your price plan. It's not guaranteed.

    I'd have to say that yes you will qualify on that line but probably not on the other line. There's always a chance they will be more lenient but we don't know for sure.

    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.

    Anyone think they will allow most people to upgrade to lock them in for another 2 years at the higher breach rate of $350 to keep them from going to Verizon in 2011?

    I personally think they will allow most customers to upgrade at the $199 or $299 price points. But I could be very very wrong. We'll see what happens.

    Well, I am hoping I get mine pushed to. I bought the iPhone on launch day last year and pay $100 a month usually, sometimes $98, so I am thinking I can get Rogers to push it either way.

    I don't think you have too much to worry about with Rogers. They are pretty lenient. Last year my plan was about $90 average, I purchased my 3G on Jul 11th 2008, and I was allowed to upgrade.

    Ok, I hope so lol. I do not want to pay the full price. What was the upgrade price for the 3GS form 3G anyway. I couldn't find it.

    Ya, thats what I paid for my 3GS. Hopefully I should be able to get an upgrade. I love Rogers and they have been great since I switched off of god awful Bell when the 3GS came out.

    Yeah but unfortunately Bell/Telus now have an incredible network with even better coverage than Rogers and the speeds are easily twice as fast, almost 3x.

    Really? Maybe it is time to switch to Telus like everyone else in my family. Hmm.

    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.
