    One of my friends ( I know it is hard to believe I have friends) was told it would be 3 to 4 weeks and he got it in 1 week!

    ...three to four weeks here. But, I'm in no rush, the iPhone 4 will suffice for now.

    Now selling it later might be an issue, i.e. I'll have to sell it cheap since there are so many in the market for sale.

    My upgrade date is November 9th. I wonder if I can order it in advance of my upgrade.

    I don't think do, but I'd go into an AT&T Store on Novemeber 1st. You have a very good chance of getting them to push your date back to Novemeber 1st. They'll probably be out of stock, but you then call the Apple Stores near you and see if they have any. If not, you can order one after 9 pm for in-store pickup.

    While some carriers will push your upgrade date up a bit you cannot order the phone before that date and still receive the upgrade pricing.

    Sprint will bump you a max of 2 weeks.

    Mine is 11/23. Two different AT&T people told me that it will be bumped to 11/1, for what it's worth coming from AT&T. ;)

    Only $10 a month, so why not?
    I have a 2nd line for my parents and used that one for 1 of my upgrades. They don't use the phone I got them now as it is. If I handed them an iPhone I would get the 'What the hell are supposed to so with this thing' look. :D

    $30 a month, my son has the free spot of the second line.

    He's almost 17, so not having a cell phone would cause a mental breakdown! LOL

    I just brought my wife in on our Sprint family plan, porting her over from AT&T. She had the iPhone 3GS and is now sporting the 4s. Her monthly bill for AT&T was about $85, and to join the Sprint family plan costs us $30 ($20 for a new line, $10 for Premium Data). No-brainer to ditch AT&T for Sprint.
