AT&T releases iPhone 3G pricing details

Posted by Dawn Kawamoto 2 comments
AT&T announced pricing for the iPhone 3G on Tuesday, noting the popular smart phones will range from $199 for 8GB to $299 for 16GB to eligible customers.

AT&T will begin offering the iPhone 3G phones at its retail stores beginning July 11 at 8 a.m. local time. AT&T is the exclusive iPhone carrier in the United States.
Under its offering, the lower price will be available to only customers who purchased an iPhone before July 11, or are activating a new customer line with AT&T, or are eligible for an upgrade at the time of purchase. Customers also are required to sign a two-year contract.
AT&T customers who are not eligible for an upgrade discount can buy the iPhone 3G for $399 for 8GB model, or $499 for a 16GB version, under a two-year contract. Customers who purchase the phone without a contract would pay $599 for 8GB or $699 for a 16GB.
The phones will come with the iPhone 2.0 software preloaded on the devices, which includes such enhancements as businesss-class e-mail through Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and the iPhone Software Development Kit for creating customized applications. AT&T will also offer its Yellowpages.com Mobile for iPhone on the devices.

its a bit harsh what there doing at AT&T over in england you get the phone free on a £45 a month contract and above, even though thats only the 8gb! but if you want the 16gb it cost £59, its much cheaper to buy over here!

Well, if the Moderators don't mind leaving it up then I guess its okay. I think for anyone who doesn't know this info and didn't read a previous post then this would help them out. Maybe the Mods can leave it up. :)

Thanks for letting me know i can not delete the thread. I searched around and found nothing, but i guess a duplicate type thread may not hurt the system afterall. ;)

the 3g uses a different data plan than the v1...so you probably cant add it to an existing v1 plan. thats just my guess though...

I'm still a bit confused.

I bought my iPhone in Jan of 2008. According to AT&T's press release:

iPhone 3G will be available for $199 for the 8GB model and $299 for the 16GB model. These prices require two-year contracts and are available to the following customers:

  • iPhone customers who purchased before July 11
  • Customers activating a new line with AT&T
  • Current AT&T customers who are eligible, at the time of purchase, for an upgrade discount
Existing AT&T customers who are not currently eligible for an upgrade discount can purchase iPhone 3G for $399 for the 8GB model or $499 for the 16GB model. Both options require a new two-year service agreement. In the future, AT&T will offer a no-contract-required option for $599 (8GB) or $699 (16GB).

Current customers may also choose to wait until they become eligible for an upgrade discount. Eligibility is generally determined by amount of time remaining on a current contract and payment history.

Current AT&T customers who are upgrading to iPhone 3G will pay an $18 upgrade fee and new AT&T customers will pay the standard $36 activation fee.

So do I pay $299 for a new 3G 16gb iPhone and then re-up for another 2 years? Or does the "requires a NEW two-year service agreement" mean I have to pay the full retail price of $699?

You do have to get a 2 year contract, but you should be able to get it for $299

you will pay either the $299 or the $499 for existing AT&T customers. there seems to be some debate whether or not AT&T customers with a v1 iPhone will automatically be eligible for the upgrade or not.
