By now, I’m past the point of not caring what’s in the new iPhone. I “watched” Apple’s keynote presentation as it happened, and I’ve read several articles and talked to my friends and ogled the videos. I haven’t changed my mind, I still want one, and I will most likely be upgrading within 60 days (because also within 60 days, I will be free of credit card debt for the first time since 1997, and I intend to celebrate a little).
I had previously thought, based on what AT&T customer service told me, that I’d be waiting until August to be eligible for an upgrade price ($299 for the 32 GB model), but during Apple’s announcement we found out that AT&T is offering an upgrade price to many more of its customers than anybody expected.
Just dial *639# from the phone interface to receive a text message explaining if you’re eligible for an upgrade price.
Now I’d like to ask you about your plans for the new iPhone, available for pre-order as soon as next week. Maybe you think it’s better than anything else on the market, or maybe you hate Apple and you wish people would never say “iPhone” again… everybody’s opinion is welcome. We’ll relay the responses to this survey in the coming days.
