AT&T Moving Up iPhone 4 Eligibility Dates?

Posted by · 15877 views · Translate
AT&T may be moving up iPhone 4 eligibility dates for some customers in an effort to lock down as many contracts as possible before Verizon gets the iPhone.

MacStories reports, "My upgrade eligibility is not up until mid-February, 2011. I know because I check, often. It’s always been that … until today. I just got an email not 30 minutes ago from AT&T and is said that I am now eligible to upgrade to the new Apple iPhone 4. Why 2 months early? Could this indeed mean Verizon could be showing off their iPhone after Christmas?"

If anyone else has noticed their eligibility status change please let us know in the comments.

AT&T Moving Up iPhone 4 Eligibility Dates?

I got the same email recently, but I bought the 3GS when it was up for pre-order. I was eligible to upgrade to iPhone 4 when they released it as well. They were going to let me upgrade a year early, so I\'m not so sure what this email is hinting to...

the email is true. most of the time, at least when i worked there, only customers who have paid their bills everymonth on time can get the early upgrade with a full discount on the iphone. Also it depends on when exactly you got the phone and usually its only for those who are already iphone customers. Personally i think its ridiculous that customers have to be on a 2 year contract when a new iphone comes out every year!

I was a new customer with a 30 trial to see if I will like the iphone 3gs and decided that I like the iphone. So I checked online to see if I can upgrade to the iphone 4, but it said that I could not until 11/16/2011 so I called and found out that I had about 1 day left on my trial. I told the csr that I wanted to upgrade to the iphone 4 and she said that I can just by walking into any att store. So I did just that and now I have a new iphone 4.

I bought my girlfriend an iPhone 3G last christmas and her upgrade time is 8/2011. But I bought the iPhone 4 this summer and my upgrade time is 6/2011. I wanted to see about getting her the new phone because we all know on the 3G, 4.2.1 is terrible. She had me downgrade to her to 3.1.3, she can\'t have any new apps and she\'s not happy.
