If you’re reading this–and you are–I suspect the chances that you bought an iPhone 3GS in the last few weeks are close to zilch. Assuming that you wanted to buy an iPhone at all, you were biding your time with the expectation that the new iPhone would be available in June or July.
But there are such folks as people who buy the current iPhone immediately before the new one is announced. And AT&T seems to be making a good-faith effort to help them avoid buyers’ remorse. The logistics are a little complicated, but people who bought iPhones after May 7th will be able to upgrade to the iPhone 4 when it arrives on June 24th.
Even if you buy an iPhone 3GS right this minute–I’d advise against it–you’ll qualify for AT&T’s 30-day money back guarantee and could theoretically return it and get an iPhone 4 before your trial period ends.
Now that we know that, is there anyone out there who thinks that AT&T’s upgrade policies for the new iPhone are unreasonable?
