AT&T Alters iPhone Upgradability
Today AT&T announced a change in its policy regarding iPhone 3GS upgrades. Those iPhone owners who were eligible for upgrades in July, August or September of this year, their eligibility will be bumped up to Friday, June 19. These customers will receive the new-contract pricing of $200 and $300 for the 16GB and 32GB iPhone 3GS, respectively. AT&T also confirmed — again — that MMS will be available late this summer, and that tethering will also be available at some point in the future. AT&T also answers a lot of other iPhone-related questions in a video it posted to YouTube today.

which means the soonest i would be eligible for an upgrade is 18 months later (December).
so allowing people who would be eligible for upgrade in July-sept. helps neither me or any other iphone early adopter to purchase the 3gs at the discounted price.
By my reckoning we're all still left out in the cold! This "allowance" will only benefit non-iphone owners with an early opportunity to jump on the iphone bandwagon.
So, bottom line did ATT screw us over or am I missing something?
I really don't see why the Iphone users can't wait until they are eligible like the rest of the wireless world.
Unless you own an Iphone, "You're" not "your" just a piece of garbage.
Had to correct that.
