No surprise, they don't give a shit about you. Why should they? You're already under contract. I highly doubt you'll have better luck at another store.

Re: iPhone

I figured someone who is ready to drop a few bills along with a more expensive contract might get some attention.

Re: iPhone

Matty, lemme just say first that getting an iphone would be the best decision you would ever make. You MUST at some point get one!

I understand you don't wanna play full price, so a possible alternative might be to switch providers. There are a lotta rumors circulating that Verizon is going to get a version of the iphone for the CDMA network. There was this report from USA today yesterday...

AFP: Verizon, Apple discussing iPhone: USA Today

I don't what you think of AT&T but the only reason i switched from Verizon (after many years) was because of the iphone. Otherwise, i loved their service.

One would think. This isn't just an ATT problem either, it's with all carries.

Ebay, Craigslist also. But if you did haggle you would've came up with something. BTW Best Buy did me well on my sprint touch. The store wanted to charge me 100 more with the upgrade. I went to Best Buy bought the phone for 100 less plus i got a Sprint gift card for 75 bucks..Key is to haggle..lol

Iphones have sim cards in them. When I initially got mine I was under the impression they did not. While I was at the store they took my old sim card out of my razor, replaced it with a new 3G sim card and transferred all my contacts to it. Right now the only way to use an Iphone on another carrier is by buying an "jailbroken" or unlocked one. If I were you I'd find one on either Craigslist or Ebay and put my sim card in it.

Re: iPhone

One more thing. I would recommend calling your provider and asking what the difference will be in your phone bill. I cant recall how much more it was for me a month but I want to say around 30-40 bucks, but that's also with unlimited data and text.

Re: iPhone

Here's a question, my wife is currently eligible for an upgrade. Can I upgrade her line and just swap out the sim cards so I can use the iphone?

Don't let her play with it before you get it or she'll be hooked!

I agree with this, even people who don't like gadgets get addicted to this thing!
