iPhone
 
I've got the fever for an iPhone, only thing is I'm not eligible for an upgrade right now and I really don't want to pay full price. I've been a long time AT&T customer, do you think they would take that into consideration and offer me the reduced price? Guess it's worth a try, right? For those of you that have one already, would you get it again? Is it worth it?

Matty -- I was skeptical of the iPhone myself, until I got one. I must admit, I love the damn thing. It has literally replaced my laptop when traveling for short times. For instance, this weekend I went out to Nebraska. Any time I had to go anywhere, I would just type something into maps and get automatic GPS directions to the place. Just type the business name, town, state and it finds it.

Its also good entertainment at the airport. Lots of games, entertaining, etc. For instance, it was draft weekend. I didn't miss a single pick or a trade.

As far as being eligible for an upgrade, I bet they'd make an exception for the iPhone. I had a friend that they gave the discount to early to get the iPhone.

I heard they are trying to clear out inventory for the expected new model coming out later this summer, so I figure that may work in my favor too. I'm going to stop by a store later today and see what happens.

I probably wouldn't have gotten rid of AT&T and my HUGE stockpile of roll-over minutes last summer if I had checked out the iPhone first. I just got so fed up with my spotty coverage that I had to switch to Verizon.

It's worth a try but I highly doubt it. iPhone is their #1 phone and Apple sucks a substantial sum from every iPhone sale and contract.


I think your best bet is to claim your current phone stopped working and that you need a new one.

Would I need to prove to them that it doesn't work? Should I break it? LOL

Don't break it cause if they tell you to take a hike you ain't got no phone...just say it shuts down on its own and hangs at times. If they say lets see it you're cool because it happens some of the time and right now it ain't happening. All of this of course depends on your ability to lie without looking like a liar.

I so want to make a reference here, but lest we go down the swine flu path... ;)
separately,
I once was on a pier, lighting 4th of july fireworks for my kids when my cell phone jumped out of my hand and flopped into the water (This is true, i swear). Frustrated I called and said what do i have to do to prove it (the water was to deep and mucky to have any hope of finding it). They ran a test on their end that showed the phone was useless, and I had to swear on a recorded statement that it was lost in the river. Then I could get warranty treatment. That was with Sprint several years ago. Doubt it would make a difference nowadays.

I found it interesting that most cell phones that are broken are lost in water. Toilets mainly. The iPhone has something inside that says if it has been damaged by water and you can't claim insurance/etc on it.

[quote=DoggDayAfternoon;552427]No don't even go to that extreme. Phone companys are the biggest lay downs in the sales world. eligible or not you can get them to upgrade for you. They'll put up a fight at first but if you threaten to go to another carrier and pay you early termination they'll hook it up for you. Enjoy the phone[/quote]

This is very true. When I was with US Cellular they would do anything possible to keep me happy when I complained about my bills. (Even though it was usually my fault for going over.) I with AT&T now and have an Iphone 3G and absolutely love it. I cant see myself ever going back to a regular phone. If you haven't messed around with one yet I'd recommend going to a local Best Buy or AT&T store and play with one for a while.

Well I got denied. I was told I couldn't even pay full price, I had to pay the no conrtact price which is something insane like $499. I'm not much of a hagler so I just said whatever and left. I'll try another store.

If you are curently not under contract, or it will be expiring soon, and you have no desire for a new one. Check out the phones on Ebay. It may be a pretty good deal to buy your own phone outright and swap the sim card. (you would have to see if the I-phone is that simple, I do not know) That way, if they piss you off, or your heart wanders to another suitor......you can go anytime......
I'm thinking about buying a new phone myself, but cannot decide? Alas...
