    Last year I bought a 3GS with the Early upgrade pricing (not the full discount)When I do *639# I get
    "you may select equipment at our full price" So I called up at&T and they told me to call an official at&t store (there systems currently do not have iPhone eligibly info). The guy at the store looked up my account. He said you account shows that you can not get any discount. but said that every current AT&T iPhone customer will get the full or partial discount. He said they they would have to override mine in the in the system when I come pre order. I told him I wanted to go to Rat Shack since they have the trade in program. He said hes not sure if it would work there since an AT&T manger needs to type in a code to override, but told me to call the radio shack that I was going to buy it from to see if they could do it. I called them and they said they have the same systems as at&t but can only authorize what it tells them. They do not know they every current AT&T iPhone customer gets a discount, but said to come on down and they might be able to call at&t up and do it.
    So as usual getting the new phone will be a pain in the a**

    I talked to Best Buy locally and Radio Shack and have this figured out. Best Buy was not even guaranteeing that they would start preorders until possibly Thursday or Friday this week, and that they may not get the iPhones in stock until July. I called Radio Shack and they will open at 7 tomorrow doing preorders and will guarantee pick up on June 24th. They even said they would look at the trade-in value of the 3GS when preordering, print out an estimate, and let you trade in for that value the day you get the new iPhone and let you use that towards the new iPhone. My vote is for Radio Shack 100%

    Seems that for at least BestBuy and Radio Shack you must come into the store to do the pre-order. I'll be traveling away from my home on the 15th so does anyone know if you can go into _any_ Radio Shack or BestBuy and pick the phone up at another store location?

    Yea you could get more on ebay or craigs but this is quick and easy without the headaches of the other methods. I could pretty much trade my 3GS for a 4 for about $30 in taxes.

    actually this pricing has changed in stores, and they no longer give you that price. They said $100 for 3G and $200 3GS in store, but I will find out more when I go in tomorrow

    I called the shack here and they said to go to their website because that is what they do at the store to get the prices. He also said that the prices will go down considerably once the iPhone is officially released. I dunno. I'm not selling mine for a few months anyways

    They appraised my 3G @ $127. No way I'm trading it in, I can get at least $200-$250 on eBay or Craigslist

    I just called radioshack at around 5 to ask when they are starting pre-orders for the iphone 4. They told me they were taking pre-orders now and all i had to is go to the store. When I got there they filled out a paper with my name, cell number, what model I wanted. They didn't charge me or take any type payment info. They told me that I am guaranteed the phone on either the 24th or the 25th they just haven't been told exactly what is happening launch day yet. The manager said that normally pre-orders for any devices are pulled from the initial inventory and set aside for those that pre-ordered. They said they would call me with more info on when I will be able to pick up my phone when they receive more info.

    First off, let me debunk this right now. I just got off the phone with best buy after stopping in and talking to them earlier. They said, if you are able to pre order the phone from them, you are GUARANTEED the phone on the 24th. Best Buy is no different from any other.

    just got off the phone with radioshack, they will be taking preorders tomorrow. $50 deposit guarantees a iphone when it comes in. Also they DO give money for old iphones. He said to bring it in and get it appraised and they will give you that amount the day you pick up towards your new iphone. Id say this is the best way to go

    I talked to my local shack and they didn't know what was going on. they told me that was the usual policy but that didn't apply to this. They told me to call in the morning when they open at 10. I would like to get mine at radio shack because I bought a 3gs there 2 weeks ago and they are going to let me return it when the 4g comes in for an even swap.

    If not I think I am going to add a line then just return my 3gs the day before (end of my 30days) and cancel the line then use the 4g with a new number. (I give everyone my google voice number so I don't have a problem changing my number)

    just called another store and they said the same thing as the first one. Preorders tomorrow, 50 deposit and get your old 3gs appraised and that goes towards the purchase price
