Strange eligibility issue!

I purchased an original iPhone all the way back in June of last year..one of the very first...a few months later..(stupidly I know) it became water-damaged and would not work...I removed the SIM and switched back to my old RAZR and slightly reduced my data plan.

Now my account standing says eligible for upgrade in 11/08..but I want the 3G TOMORROW!...even though I don't currently use my old iPhone..do you think I can talk AT&T into selling it to me at $199? I still have my old phone..I plan to bring it with me so they can verify it was on my account for that amount of time...any help with this?

I really really will be disappointed if I'm told I have to pay $399..when I already paid $499 once..and Steve Jobs is running around saying pay half the price!

thanks

I posted this in another thread, but AT&T website is unstable with info today because they are working on their system for tomorrow. I would call customer service. I got mine July 7, 2007 and it says I'm eligible.
