Did you report the mugging to the police? I've heard that AT&T will give you upgrade pricing on a replacement iPhone if you have a police report documenting that yours was stolen.

Sorry to hear about the mugging. Are you okay? I hope they catch the bastards.

Yeah I reported everything to the police. I told Att all about it with 2-3 different reps, they didn't seem to care and said that since my contract doesn't expire until jan 2010 that theyll only give me "early" upgrade pricing which is 399.99 for an 8gb 3G. =(

Sorry to hear about the stolen phone but as others suggested I would try looking on eBay or Craigslist.

Yep. eBay is really expensive, craigslist is 400 dollars or more for any kind of iPhone 3G period. Might as well just go in the Apple store and pay 400 dollars if im gonna buy off craigslist. But I can't do that cause I only have about 250 to work with.
