iPhone Users Angry over ATT Upgrade Policy

Hugh Pickens writes "AT&T will offer the new iPhone 3G S when it debuts later this month at a cost of $199 and $299 for the 16GB and 32GB models but only to new customers and those who qualify for the discounted price while AT&T subscribers with an iPhone 3G who are not eligible for an upgrade — those not near the end of their two-year contracts — will have to pay $200 more — $399 for the 16GB model and $499 for the 32GB model. "This is ridiculous and slap in the face to long time loyal iPhone customers like me who switched from T-Mobile and the only reason was the iPhone," writes one unhappy iPhone customer. "We have to mount a vigorous campaign to change this policy. Call your local AT&T and ask for the manager and complain. Send e-mails and post in forums everywhere." The issue is spurring heavy debate on support discussion forums with some customers supporting ATT. "The option you have is to honor the contract you freely committed yourself to," says one forum member. "If you want to upgrade early then you will have to pay full price with no subsidy discount. You can't blame anyone but yourself for your predicament.""
