The Death Star blinks…a little
AT&T has modified their pricing for iPhone 3G customers. If you were eligible for fully subsidized pricing in July, August, or September, AT&T will give you the subsidized price now. Basically you’re getting up to a 3-month reprieve if you upgrade. The press release has all the details, but if you want to check whether or not you’re qualified, just call *639# from your iPhone. You’ll get a text back from AT&T indicating when is the earliest you can upgrade your phone. If the upgrade date is in the July-September timeframe, you’re golden. UPDATE: AT&T’s systems have not yet caught up to their press release. That’s why I’m still getting the December date as my eligibility date. If I had actually read through the press release instead of scanning just the parts that were important to me, I would have realized that their systems won’t have caught up until the 18th, which is tomorrow.
Here’s the AT&T press release.
