Question Official iPhone 3G pricing and plans announced.

http://www.dailytech.com/ATT+Announc...ticle12249.htm

I know that some of you are totally not interested in this and might not like more of the Iphone threads, but I have one question related to this link.

It states that,

"Those upgrading from a handset not eligible for discounts will pay $399 for the 8GB iPhone 3G and $499 for the 16GB model with a new 2-year agreement. Engadget also says that a no-commitment version of the iPhone 3G is coming at a gut-wrenching $599 for the 8GB and $699 for the 16GB. New customers signing up for with a two-year contract can get the phones for $199 and $299 respectively."

I currently have AT&T as my cell phone provider and obviously interested in getting the new Iphone 3G, if I would to get new 2-year agreement will I be able to get it for $200 the 8G version? or is the $200 price tag for only the people who are currently not an AT&T customers? I know it sounds stupid but that statement gat me a bit confused...

Thanks

If your 2 years is up and your eligible to sign a new 2 year contract you can get the discounted price.

If your in the middle of a current contract you would have to buy it outright which means no discounts.

its when your current one expires, but it will still cost you over $100/ month just to have the phone on your plan. at&t and apple are screwing us. i'll pass on the iphone and stick with my free phone.

Rogers caves on iPhone 3G plans, offers up 6GB for $30 a month

Those kind, gentle Canadians have been oh-so-politely demanding a few heads on sticks ever since Rogers' super-spendy iPhone 3G price plans were announced. Well, apparently their cries have been heard, and now Rogers is launching a promotional offer along with the iPhone of 6GB of data for $30 a month -- not quite unlimited data, but close enough -- which can be added on top of any regular voice plan. The promo will be available for iPhone buyers who activate with a three year contract before August 31. Also, perhaps in a bid to dispel some nasty rumors about a major iPhone shortage, Rogers will be hosting 8AM launch day events at six Rogers Plus stores in major Canadian cities, complete with a free breakfast. Mmm, breakfast.
