iPhone Upgrade to Cost an Extra $200?

iPhone Upgrade to Cost an Extra $200?

Current iPhone users might find an extra $200 tagged onto the price of the iPhone 3G S when they try to upgrade.

According to an AppleInsider report customers must have stayed with AT&T for at least a year to quality for the advertised $199 (16GB) and $299 (32GB) price points.

Current users who bought their iPhone 3G shortly after launch last year will have to wait till their previous date of purchase to upgrade. Otherwise, they will have to pay the $200 premium. That makes the 16GB iPhone $399 and the 32GB iPhone $499.

Users can also pay a $400 premium to get the new phone with no-contract, no-commit pricing. That would make the 16GB iPhone $599 and the 32GB iPhone $699.

Yes, you do. If you don't you have to pay the extra 200 bucks, I will have to because i bought the 3g last November and it is no where near 2 years.

Wrong, according to at&t site, the contract time required is 18 months, not 1 year.
