I didn't expect the call, and even after that I didn't expect to get the early upgrade, not after reading so many people here saying they didn't.
and I wasn't going to call them back that's for sure.
I'm kind of loving AT&T tonight :D

Awesome! Glad to hear it worked for you. Did they roll back your date or give you a credit? Have you already ordered?

If I can't order on my own tomorrow, meaning the system doesn't update, I'll call and get the phone express shipped and should get it by Wednesday, they told me they have it in stock.

Btw, this unlimited data for the 4S is a little different than our current unlimited plan, that's why the system was having problem recognizing it.
he could have giving me the phone for 299 tonight, but I had to cancel my unlimited plan and get pay as you go, then call them back and get it fixed. I got my 2 months, that's what I wanted.

So the newer unlimited data is a newer type of plan from the older unlimited data plan?

there is currently no unlimited data plan. People that want to grandfather in their old plan have to be careful with upgrades.

I was able to select unlimited when I ordered on Apple.com this morning. Do you have to order through AT&T?

No, but I will, they did more than enough for me to deserve it.

Going this route has crossed my mind too. Are unlocked devices even going to be available for purchase as a preorder, or even in store on launch day? I read in another thread (sorry, can't remember which one right now) that they wouldn't be available immediately.

I'm pretty sure that Apple said they will not be released until sometime in November.

Hello everyone,

So not sure if anyone has any ideas/suggestions/similar circumstance.

I received the iPhone 4 in June 2010 and had the following rate plan: 1000 texts, unlimited data, 450 minutes. I also had a FAN discount of 15%--this made my bill approximately $75/month.

My upgrade eligibility has always been 11/24/2011 and I was looking forward to upgrading to the iPhone 4S. Last week I found out my employer has an even better FAN discount--23%. I upgraded from my old University FAN account to my new employer discount on Tuesday 10/18 and all is great--I saved another $6 on my monthly bill and it is now $69/month. Only problem is now I see that my upgrade eligibility has moved from 11/24/2011 to 2/24/2012. I called AT&T today and they basically told me that I changed my FAN account and that can move your eligibility back 3-9 months. Obviously I'm not happy about this--and they basically refused to move it back even after I asked them to take the FAN discount off (I did speak with a supervisor). The only suggestion they had was call back tomorrow and ask for retention or go to a store.

What course of action would you recommend to get back to 11/24 upgrade eligibility? I'm not looking to have it moved up to today...just back to my original upgrade date.

Advice?
