There are a million threads on this.

Check the AT&T forum about what AT&T is doing regarding pricing. You should be able to get it for $199/$299.

So you have had the phone for about 10-11 months?

Trnsilver do you actually think that is long enough to get the fully subsidized price? I think that you will be eligible for the $399/$499 price set.

AT&T is updating the upgrade dates you should be able to get the 3gs in august I believe if you dial *68# it will tell you when you can upgrade at a lower price.

If you are on a family plan you can see if someone else is eligible and use their eligibility for the cheaper price then use the phone on your line. Or even a friend who is eligible and they are ok with you using it. Although it will sign the line you use into a new 2 year contract.
