Hey everyone. I just went into to my local ATT and got preapproved for the iPhone 3G. No deposit needed for me. Thank goodness. $500 is just unbelievable. Also the guy told me I was eligible for my 24% discount through the company I work for. I didn't even have to ask, he just told me while he was entering my info. He said it didn't work for the original iPhone, but it does now. Hopefully this question can be put to rest.
