First-gen iPhones bought after May 27th can be swapped for iPhone 3G for free, says AT&T
If you’re one of the unlucky folks who are throwing their fists at the sky right now because none of the angels stopped you from getting a so obsolete first-gen iPhone before today’s announcement, fret not. Official word from AT&T confirms that they have a nice offer waiting for you regarding the iPhone 3G.
If you bought a first-gen iPhone after May 27th, you’ll be able to swap it for an iPhone 3G at no extra charge. All you have to do is walk up to your local AT&T store and tell them about your predicament, presumably. This is only applicable to AT&T customers who bought their first-gen iPhones AFTER May 27th.
For everybody else who bought a first-gen iPhone BEFORE May 27th and are still interested in getting iPhone 3G, the only way to go would be to sign up for a new 2-year AT&T contract. This would overwrite your old contract and give you only two years instead of adding to the previous one (instead of adding two more years to your current contract, AT&T will erase whatever’s left of it and let you start a fresh 2-year one with iPhone 3G).
So there you have it. Free iPhone 3G’s and an easy switch to existing iPhone-AT&T customers everywhere. Just the way Steve Jobs likes it, I’m sure.
