No trade-in required, but you must be eligible for an upgrade based on how far along you are into your contract. Standard is after 18 months you're eligible, but most iPhone users seem to be eligible at the 12-month mark, possibly based on the relatively high cost of an iPhone account.

Earliest you will possibly have a chance to upgrade would be maybe November. That is not for sure. You have 30 days to turn in your phone so anyone that gets a 3g 29 days before the release of the new phone can upgrade.

Nobody knows for sure. The original iPhone was not subsidized, so you could upgrade to the 3G at the subsidized price. They may do that with the 3G and the next gen iPhone, but I doubt it.

If your mom wants your 3G and she is upgrade eligible...you can use her upgrade for your line. One of my lines is eligible in August, so if they do not allow us to upgrade early at the subsidized price, I will be using that upgrade for my line.
