    I was waiting for some absolution on this, and i got it today via email from AT&T.

    This came from AT&T Customer Care for Wireless, the email addresss was [email protected]

    Dear Mr. Crane,

    Thank you for contacting AT&T regarding whether or not you may upgrade
    to the new 3G iPhone since you purchased your iPhone after May 27, 2008.
    I apologize for any confusion this may have caused and I am happy to
    assist you today.

    I understand your concerns regarding the release of the 3G iPhone. I can
    appreciate you wanting to get the best value on your new phone and I
    apologize for any frustration that the new equipment or promotion may
    have caused. If you purchased your 2G iPhone more than 14 days ago, the
    device cannot be returned or exchanged because it is not within the
    return policy. However, all of our current postpaid 2G iPhone customers
    that are in good standing will qualify to upgrade to a 3G iPhone when it
    is available. If you purchased your 2G iPhone at a company owned AT&T
    retail store on or after 5/27 (within the 14 day return period for the
    2G iPhone and before the product announcement on 6/9), you can exchange
    your 2G iPhone for a 3G iPhone before August 1st. This means that you
    can return your 2G iPhone and pay the 10% restocking fee to purchase a
    new 3G iPhone before August 1st. This option only applies to customers
    who purchase the iPhone from a company owned AT&T retail store.
