So just what happens to your At&t contract when you get a new iPhone?

Table of Contents


If you’re a current 4 or 8 gb iPhone owner, you might be thinking about buying one of those new 16 gb iPhones – but what happens to that new 2-year agreement you have to pick up along with those additional gigs?

Well, for a while there it looked like you were going to have to start that 2 year contract over…which would be a clever way to keep people locked into At&t for eternity. It’s just evil enough that it wouldn’t have surprised me if At&t had done it…and if you talk to lower level customer reps they might say that’s exactly what’s going on…BUT…luckily, the At&t higher-ups have made it clear that while you are signing a new contract when you purchase a new iPhone, that contract is back-dated to the date of your original At&t iPhone contract.

  1. 16GB is nice, but I want my 3G. With yesterday’s announcement, it seems AT&T is finally putting some capital into expanding their network but will we have to wait until this is in place before an iPhone 3G is here?
