So I got my iPhone 4 the same week it came out last year.. But now I'm just itching to get the 4S. I checked my eligibility and it says I'll be able to get in march for $199 and $299. So there's no way I can get it earlier for the same price?

This has been brought up numerous times but you signed a 2 year contract. Your bill is probably under $100/month before taxes so you must wait 18 months to upgrade. over $100/month pretax and you can upgrade in 12 months

I got mine end of July of last year and I got AT&T to upgrade me early. I'm just waiting for my phone.
I pay less than $90 a month.
Call, be polite, ask if there's anything they can do, even few weeks would be awesome, if she/he says there's nothing they can do ask if a manager might be able to help and ask to talk to them even if they have to call you back. Also mentioning that you want to buy from them instead of Apple might help, and that you know others that have been upgraded earlier.
It worked for me. Good luck.

Just don't mention my name :D

I'm not sure how sim cards work but you should be able to do, my family has done that on Verizon by going to carrier so that we alway get subsidized pricing. So that sounds like a good option but maybe call AT&T to ask if switching sim cards would work.
