    I was curious to see how fast my AT&T account would change to my next years date after completing this preorder for the iPhone 4S.

    Well, I was eligible on June 26, 2011 for an upgrade. My husband was eligible on February 6, 2011 for an upgrade.

    I decided to check what AT&T adjusted my next date to. Well, my husband and my new upgrade date is May 8, 2013. I don't understand a 17 month wait this time around. The only thing I can think is this date might change.

    In case it doesn't, I am already making plans to save $ to buy the next iPhone in October, if it comes out then. It's just what I do. I get the new one every year no matter what. AT&T has been good to me so far in allowing my yearly upgrades. Maybe next go around they'll adjust the dates again.

    So, have you all checked what AT&T has for your next upgrade date yet? If you don't have AT&T then tell us what your new date is if you've looked.

    Ah, I see a pattern. Well dag on it! That just feels like a long time. Hopefully this date will change to closer to whatever the release date of the next iPhone will be.

    We can dream right? LOL!

    Wow I assumed this was only if you got it through AT&T. But I guess it is the same if you order from Apple as mine now says 5/7/2013. I didn't think it changed yet because when I logged onto AT&T it first gave me the "You are eligible to upgrade!" message. But when I clicked to check that date had changed.

    Oh, I always check after an upgrade as to what date they give me next.

    After my hubby's iPhone was stolen I was magically made the primary on the account and that got me the yearly upgrade. That's why I was happy that this time around we could get the new iPhone 4S at the same time. With the iPhone 4 he was not eligible but I did get it and now we both get the 4S, but next year what will happen, IDK.

    Mine say 05/08/13 also, which is odd because I am the primary on my $200 a month family plan. I've always got the 12 month upgrade option before.

    I usually check after I actually have the phone.

    Now I know why last year I had a problem when I cancelled my Apple store order then tried to order it again: it would never go through again but I was only told I had to do it in person. It must have messed up my eligibility date on the AT&T side. I won't be canceling this time.

    Last year I was on a businesss trip on the day of release and didn't want to not be home when it arrived. So I cancelled the order and instead had it reserved at an Apple store where I was going to be. Well that turned into a disaster as I could not wait the 4+ hours for even the reserved line. So had to cancel that too. Finally picked up at Walmart a few days later. Not going through that again!

    This is why I'm not upgrading until iPhone 6.

    The dates we're seeing after upgrading should be the typical normal contract upgrades (e.g., month 20 or so on a 24 month contract). My experience to date has been this date will change over the course of the contract depending on how much the primary line is paying.

    Yes, I thought my date was strange too. i suppose this date will be changing as time marches on.

    Yes, this makes sense. Thanks for bringing that up.
