"During its presentation at WWDC Monday, Apple highlighted new pricing for the iPhone 3G and the upcoming iPhone 3G S model but didn't explain that existing iPhone 3G customers will have to pay a $200 premium to upgrade to the latest model if they want one right away."
This has caused quite a ruckus all over the net. Differing opinions are being thrown out there, ranging from "too bad, you knew what you were getting into when you agreed to the 2-year contract" to "AT&T is gouging us!" I won't go to the gouging extreme, since they will supposedly allow you to upgrade at the 18-month mark, however the last time I upgraded it was at the one year mark so I'm a little perturbed at 18-months to be honest. I really want to test out the video of this new iPhone but I haven't decided yet if it is worth the $200.00 USD premium, what do you think?
If you are curious if you qualify for the upgrade, head on over to Apple, and they can tell you when you will be eligible, just don't break the screen when your information pops up!
