I’m on Apple’s website, punched in all my info and it says I’m eligible for the subsidized price of the iPhone 4. Odd? You bet, since I’ve only had my 3Gs for a year and a few days. Anyone else score this offer after only having their 3Gs for a year? Last I checked, when I made my reserveration before the iPhone 4 went on sale, I had to pay the full cost, $599.
No, the screen isn’t faked and I managed to get all the way to checkout where I could punch in my credit card info. This is for the 16GB version.
Update: It would seem those who were early adopters of the 3Gs might be eligible for the special pricing. Still, it’s strange that I wasn’t directly solicited with this info and that they tried to get me to pay the full price when I made a reservation.
Update 2: Also, if you spend a significant amount per month with AT&T they might bump you up to 2-year pricing.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
